PL 40 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Great product a real time saver went right through oak and pine limbs without problems. Very little effort required so you can get the job done. I used this with the ms460 and ms180 and makes quick work of the trees. 32 inch handles save your back also especially if your over 6 foot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The last loppers you'll ever buy. The PL 40 is strong and durable. The orange cushion grommet will keep you from jarring your wrists when you cut through thick branches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lopper ever! These things are great, if you need to trim limbs, brush, undergrowth you want a pair of these, I've got two and I love them and they have lasted for years.
