This lopper features a 32” handle for greater pruning leverage.
It’s time to call in the big guns. The STIHL PL 40 lopper is our largest model, made for higher tree branches that defy lesser tools. Its aircraft aluminum handle measures a full 32”, perfect for reaching taller branches and getting better leverage on all your pruning tasks. Its specially designed cutting head has a cutting capacity of 2”. If this lopper can’t cut it, it probably needs a saw.
Note: The cutting blades can be sharpened using a file or honing stone.
