Loppers are essentially pruners with long handles. They’re used mostly to prune out twigs and smaller branches (up to 2 inches in diameter, depending on the lopper). The long handles allow you to reach higher/farther and give you the leverage you need to cut thicker branches.
What is the difference between a pruner and a lopper?
Pruners are one-handed tools used for smaller branches and stems around half an inch or less in width. Loppers are two-handed tools that are used for medium-size branches and stems that are too big for hand pruners but are thinner than 1 to 1.5 inches. (For larger branches/stems use a pruning saw.)
What are anvil loppers used for?
For dead or dying branches, vegetation you need to get removed quickly, and tough to cut stems- consider an anvil lopper to provide the cutting power to rapidly move through your task with relative ease. These are also extremely helpful for cutting naturally fallen branches to length for firewood, or disposal.
What’s better anvil or bypass loppers?

How do you cut a stem with a lopper?
Perfect cut location for bypass loppers: For the most exactly-placed cut, line up the blade itself with your cutting site. Remember that the blade passes to the side of its thick base, so the precise spot that the blade comes through shifts about a 1/4” when you flip the tool. Get the wood deep into the loppers.
