The compound lever system with multiple pivot points and moving parts increases the force applied to the blades.

This lopper is 30-Inch long! Lopper length affects the amount of leverage you have – longer loppers give you more leverage, making it easier to cut through thicker branches.
Anvil lopper have one straight blade that cuts as it closes onto a flat edge or ‘anvil’ (think about it like a knife on a chopping board). These are best used on dead wood or to trim back live wood before making a final, clean cut with bypass loppers. Because of their design, they can often cut thicker branches than bypass loppers.

This seems to be a good lopper. I cut up and pile brush for fire mitigation purposes in Colorado and a large percentage of the material is dead. Don't use bypass loppers on dead material. It will quickly destroy them. I really can't see any purpose at all for bypass loppers as anvil loppers can be used for both dead and live material. These anvil loppers from Tabor Tools work well and have the advantage of a simple but efficient design. I'd recommend them highly.
Bought these for my husband for chirstmas and he could not have been more pleased!
Clearing property of small saplings and overgrown bushes. Purchased 2 other heavy duty anvil loppers from another company. Within a week they were both ruined. These were used on wood less than 2 inchs in diameter. Replacement parts cost more than a new lopper. Read good reviews on this lopper and decided to give it a try.
So glad I did ! This lopper goes through same size branches like butter, much less effort needed. After using a week, no problems.
