On occasion there is a tool that you really don’t absolutely need, but could still be justifiably useful. Sure, you probably mostly want it because it’s awesome, but it still could be very useful. It has slightly more versatility than a chain saw, it can do some of the things you’d do with a chainsaw and hedge clippers. Plus, it’s a whole lot tougher looking than a set of hedge clippers.
The cut capacity is up to 4 inches and has a 4.5 amp motor. The clamping jaws make cutting through branches fast and easy. They’re like a giant pair of scissors, they’re just a whole lot meaner. It appears that this needs to be plugged in, but I really can’t say for sure. It would be more convenient if you didn’t always have to deal with a cord, but it’s not too bad of a deal either way. You can pick up the Alligator Lopper for a little over $100.
