Pros:Sharp looking red handles

Cons:Not really a super lopper
Of no use for potatoes

The Bottom Line: Having read online reviews I expected Cutzilla. I got Paul Bunyan's weaker cousin.


On a brisk February day the mighty Spudman purposely trod to the extremes of Spud Acres to cut some kindling for his fireplace and test out his new 32" Corona anvil lopper with a stated two inch capacity. He laid out some fallen branches of varying diameters and with arms like pistons began to cut. On smallish one inch wood he was mostly successful with few drops of sweat shed.

An intimidating 1.5" branch tested his mettle and the lopper's metal, but with his brute strength Spudman prevailed. However he met his match with the imposing two inch diameter branches, stubborn wood that even he with his new Corona couldn't master. Frustrated, he tried his tool on a thick piece of rotted wood. Success! But just barely.

The dejected Spudman walked back to the house, sat down, and read the glossy attachment that had been tied to the Corona.
32 inch compound action - check
24 inch fiberglass handles - check
8 inch non slip foam grips - check
Prune like a pro - check
Replaceable blade and anvil - check
Four-bar compound linkage triples your cutting power. - check? (How’d they arrive at that triple claim?)
Resharpenable PTFE non-stick coated high carbon steel blade for continuous smooth cutting. - Check

Cuts up to 1.5 inches - chabonga!

He returned to Amazon and read the product page again. "It don't say nothin' bout 1.5 inches," he griped.

Since he had scored a warehouse deal and bought his loppers for pennies under 20 dollars, he decided to keep them. IThe Corona will keep company with his little Fiskars and the Ace telescoping-handle loppers in the garden shed. Spudman will continue to use his Corona loppers for the one inch wood. For the thicker stuff, he'll use his little Black and Decker 18V battery powered chainsaw or just snap the sticks into pieces with his Herculean arms.

"Made in Taiwan to Corona's exacting specifications."


Appendix - The following information is about as important as a human appendix.
In Spudman laboratories we compared the cutting power of the Corona 32” compound action anvil lopper to that of an 18 inch Fiskars lopper with a dull blade and orange plastic grips. Using our ignorance of physics, trigonometry, geometry, and several other
-try’s, we determined that the Corona loppers with their longer handles and newer blade could cut approximately 25 per cent better than the Fiskars.

Appendix 2 -
Always use eye protection.

Do not use while standing on a ladder.
 
Guard against endangering people or property with falling branches. (THIS IS FUNNY SINCE THE CUT BRANCHES WON’T BE VERY THICK OR HEAVY.)

Do not use around electrical wires or equipment.

Do not use for cutting toe nails or peeling potatoes.

This fine tool is backed with a Limited lifetime warranty. It only covers tools defective in materials or workmanship.
