Trimming trees can improve both aesthetics and the tree's overall health. It can also be dangerous if you're not comfortable with a chainsaw, or laborious when using manual tools. Black + Decker's Alligator Lopper provides a safe middle ground. It has innovative clamping jaws that grab and cut in one easy motion, with a 4.5 Amp electric motor and heavy-duty cutting bar and chain to handle branches and tree limbs up to 4" thick. Corded operation means all-day cutting without needing to swap batteries or add fuel, and its 6.5-pound weight is easy on the arms, shoulders, and back.
