recommend a lopper
I need a two-handed lopper for some fairly significant shrub pruning. Extendable handles would be a bonus.
The most constraining constraint (heh heh) is it needs to be in stock at my local Home Depot, Lowes, or Menards (so no wait or shipping cost). Gardening stores and nurseries seem to have higher prices without necessarily carrying better brands.
I want to hear about the good as well as the bad--what brand/model do you swear by and what do you avoid like the plague?
