Quick video of the Sintung Lopper for the Hayauchi Pole Saw in use

The Sintung Lopper is designed to be used with the Hayauchi Pole Saw. The lopper fits quickly and easily. Most loppers used on telescopic poles require you to have three hands to use. The Sintung Lopper is unique being a ratchet lopper. Just bite the blade into the branch, let the spring bring the lopper position to the next notch on the ratchet and pull down again.

Sintung Ratchet Lopper and the Silky Hayauchi Pole

The Sintung Lopper is designed to be used with the Hayauchi Pole Saw. The lopper fits quickly and easily. With most loppers you have to have arms 3 metres long to be able to cut through a 30mm branch.

See how a Sintung Ratchet lopper solves this problem

Silky Saws cut exceedingly FAST & EFFICIENT! To keep them this way we recommend that you clean your blades with 'EASy Saw Cleaner', to remove resin deposits and give an anti bacterial treatment. A build up of resin/sap will make the blade harder & slower to cut with. We also recommend spraying the blades with a lanolin based lubricant, for longer protection.

The Forester blade stays sharp for about three sharpens of a sharpenable Silky Saw blade. For the average home gardener you will probably never replace this blade in your lifetime.
