    Hi -

    I have been dropping some live trees in residential areas lately. I have been using lopers for clearing the limbs away from the trunk safely and quickly. My Craftsman brand bypass lopers are pretty decent but last only about a year. They trade them without complaint, but is is sad.

    So I bought a set of Corona 3" Bypass lopers. They are large, and fairly heavy. I put them to work on a fence row clearing job. Sassafras, Willow, and Poplar I could cut 3" limbs. Silver Maple and cherry about 1 1/2" was enough limb for me. The long handles are nice, I didn't find myslef bending over very far to cut brush at ground level.

    I like them. I'm still not ready to give up my lighter and smaller Craftsman lopers but the Corona 3" Loper will be coming along when I drop bushy live trees. I paid $40 for them.

    I have a set of fiskars bypass lopers that I've been happy with. I also have a set of ratcheting anvil lopers (unknown brand) that work pretty good on the big stuff....but they are slow.
