I've recently discovered Corona Clipper pruners and loppers, they're my new favorite brand. Does anyone else have a good ol' standby that they rely on for tools that never fail?
I generally buy Fiskars pruners/loppers/scissors/digging tools because I ruin good tools as fast as I ruin less expensive ones. I only purchase the cast aluminum trowels because those last at least a year or two before I break them. Anything welded breaks at the weld. Anything bolted shears at the bolt. It would probably help if I didn't use anything that happens to be in my hands as a combination pickaxe/trench shovel/sledge hammer/pry bar, including the aforementioned scissors. I found it was far less expensive and much easier to just continue with my tool-abusing ways and buy less expensive tools as warranted.
Another Corona pruner fan here. I have been using it for years. Desperately needing a new one!
