    On a related note:

    The Fiskars Powergear2 Ultrablade Bypass Lopper kicks a** !!!

    Cuts through thick branches like it's butter.
    Still $29.

      Couldn’t agree more. I have the looper and the shearer’s. Both kick arse.

        I have the looper

      Fiskars gear is really good. I have one if their axes and it’s the best one I’ve ever used.

  • Got one. Thanks OP

    Bought one from Bunnings for $29 a couple of weeks back, very disappointed. OK for hedges but no chance they will "cut through thick branches like butter" unless they are butter.

    • +11

      You need the lopper for that

    • +5

      Well, it's designed for hedges, not thick branches

      Keep an eye out these these next time mate. Otherwise, the Aldi one is just as good.

      • These look to be back on stock now … so Aldi or these ones lol

        • +2

          I’d go with the Fiskars.

        • +2

          That's a no brainer. Definitely Fiskars.

  • is this any good for personal grooming?

    Is it battery operated or manual ?

    • +22

      im not a rocket surgeon, but i think its actually solar powered.

      • Yeah it doesn't take a nucular scientist to figure out how this product cuts foilage

    • +1

      muscle operated

      • Then power in the name is just muscle powered?

          Or, you can build a robot which runs on battery to operate that if you want.

      I'm not a scientist but I think this one is whinged powered. Whenever my spouse whinges, it's operated

  • Was tempted, good brand but these days I stick to the ones to ones that can be extended like telescopic. Has been a more useful feature to me in the long run.

  • This might be a monthly special - I bought this and the loppers for $29 at the end of last month.

    edit: the loppers are $29 too - https://www.bunnings.com.au/fiskars-medium-powergear2-ultrab...

    The Amazon product is an American import so yes the price will be higher.

  • Alternatively, you can wait for 3 pcs set from Aldi going on sale next week (2nd Oct). Set includes bypass loppers, pruning shears and hedge shears. Price for set is $ 19.99
    Carbon steel blades with non-stick coating. Have a look at their online catalog. I can't tell whether Fiskars Powergear2 is better or Aldi one.

      Only on OzBargain would you read that…

      • It’s on the Aldi 30/9 sale but is this one worth it? I bought pruning shears lately though doh but this is not a bad set?

        I actually just need loopers, don’t have any bushy thing to use it for

      Aldi tools rust very quickly; the Fiskars don't and you have 25 year warranty.

    • +1

      I think you mean 29 Sep? The Aldi ones don't have powergear (not a gimmick, gives you more leverage so you can cut thicker branches with less effort) and rust/blunt very quickly.

  • Heads up - I was able to order one from the Pakenham store but got an email saying it was out of stock and would be swapped with a Trojan one….

    • +1

      Mmmm, tell them to refund you instead. Fiskars is well better than Trojan.

  • Was recently comparing hedge shears in-store, tempted to buy this because of the price but end up not buying since it's much heavier than the rest (even non fiskars). Looks like this is the value range. End up buying the HSX92 model

  • Might be good for some of those lockdown hairdos

    • Edward Scissorhands!!

  • Is this from Finland or is this made in China?
    Asking for a friend…

    • Prob China ? Lol

    • +1

      What difference does it make? I bet 80% of his possessions are made in China

  • Thanks OP! I just got both this and the lopper!

    Time to clear the hedges
