Felco Loppers

When you have to make cuts on branches with larger diameters then we strongly recommend that you use a 2 handed lopper for the job.

Loppers are specifically designed for the task of pruning thick branches that cannot be pruned comfortably with a one handed pruning shear.
By using a lopper for thicker cuts you will ensure that a clean, neat cut is produced.
Many users have experienced the frustration of attempting to cut thicker branches with a hand shear only to end up damaging the shear and ending up with a badly pruned plant.

Felco loppers have an excellent arm lever effect thanks to the length of the handles, and as is the norm with Felco,they are made with the same attention to detail and precision as the hand shears.


Felco has recently introduced 2 Lever-action loppers into their range of pruning tools, either with a curved anvil or a flat anvil. These loppers are very efficient and are ideally suited for the intensive pruning of large branches in orchards.

Easier Cutting Action
Innovative and ingenious lever system that greatly reduces the required cutting effort. The force applied by the user is multiplied up to 26 times!

Extra large cutting diameter
Bevelled blade on both sides for easier penetration into the wood. The large opening of the cutting head easily allows the cutting of branches up to 40 mm in diameter.

Ergonomics and comfort
Ultra light. Less arm and shoulder strain for the user, even with intensive use. Non-slip handle grips. A safety stop prevents fingers getting jammed at the end of the cutting action.

Strong but light
The tubular aluminium handles are surprisingly light whilst being exceptionally sturdy.

Felco 231

The FELCO 231 features a hollow-shaped blade and a curved anvil that traps the branch close to the fulcrum of the cutting head, thus making cutting easier.

Bypass Loppers

Felco has re-designed their range of bypass loppers and the new range are worthy successors to the Felco 20, 21 and 23 models.
The handles are available in different materials and lengths and all parts are interchangeable between in the range.

Cape Agricultural Products sells the models with the new, lightweight, aluminium handles and can also supply models with new Carbon Fibre handles on request.
