Tool or Gardening Product
Super-Light Power Loppers
Fiskars scissors are famous, but the company's garden tools should be, too. Especially these loppers. Lighter than a pound but geared for cutting branches up to an inch in diameter, they do the job without wearing you out. Endorsed by the American Rose Society, they have teflon-coated blades. This must-have tool is black with orange handles -- easy to spot when you lay it down in the garden! Under $40.
