The Bahco P280-SL-80 Heavy Duty Bypass Lopper is designed to cut strong branches, as well as live or dead wood, in many landscaping settings.
This lopper measures 80 cm (31.5") and is made from super-light aluminum to reduce weight, which makes cutting easier and faster. Rubber buffers are included to ease the shock on the operator's wrists and forearms.
The P280-SL-80 features a lever action cutting system, which makes cutting up to 50 % easier. This lopper has a short and thick blade designed to stand up to extreme stress. The deep counter-blade is used to catch strong branches.
The hook shape of the counter-blade allows a large cutting diameter and holds the branch steady while cutting. The cutting blade slides past the counterblade in a scissor action. The pivot bolt is offset from the natural center-line. This design creates a slicing motion while cutting, assisting in the pruning of live wood. This spreads the wear over a larger area of the blade increasing its life.
Note: The Bahco P280-SL-80 is a direct replacement for the Bahco P180-70 lopper.
