Portability that doesn’t compromise its cutting power. The STIHL PL 10 lopper features a specially curved cutting head, giving you a 1” cutting capacity. Its shorter 24” handle is made from durable yet lightweight aircraft aluminum, making it our lightest and most compact lopper. The deep jaws mean that the drop-forged blades don’t slip out of the cut. It’s the perfect choice for vines and small branches that hand pruners just can’t handle.Note: The cutting blades can be sharpened using a file or honing stone.
