I purchased these in January 2015 and have used them heavily for 2 and a half years.
PROS: The cutting blades are extremely good. They stay adjusted. The loppers are easy to disassemble for a thorough cleaning and sharpening. The handles have not bent even at fullest extension and during some heavy pruning.
CONS: The adjustable handle feature of these loppers began to fail within a few months of use. They would not maintain the length as set, whether the handles were fully collapsed, fully extended, or some place in between. Because I liked the quality of the cutting assembly, I learned to live with this as an inconvenience. More recently, both handle extensions began to fall completely off the bases. Apparently the crimp holding the extensions to the adjusting mechanism failed. Today, one handle fell off completely.
CONCLUSIONS/RECOMMENDATIONS: It's with mixed feelings that I give these a 3-Star rating. For the adjustable handle feature, they receive 0-Stars. For the cutting jaws, they receive 5-Stars. For the future, I plan to simply choose a convenient length, drill through the meaty part of the base handle, and screw the extensions at one length. I guess I would recommend these for their cutting ability. In fact, they are probably the best pruners I have ever used for cutting. Anyone who buys these in an adjustable version needs to be prepared to live with mediocrity.
