Don't have loppers myself but when my dad was complaining about the state of my hedge cutter things, I sent him off with some money and he came back with a pair of Fiskars because he rates them as a good brand (and they are brilliant compared with the others!). So now I'll be buying Fiskars for all sorts.

I also have a pruning saw from Silky Fox which was really expensive but is just amazing. I think they do loppers as well which I imagine are great.

We have two Fiskars anvil loppers which are used a hell of a lot to great effect. We also have a Silky pruning saw which was expensive but incredibly sharp - a very dangerous tool, one slip and no fingers!

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.
