Florian Ratcheting Mini Lopper

Anyone who's struggled to cut through thicker branches with a traditional bypass lopper will fall in love with this 19” mini lopper, which easily cuts branches up to 1 1/4" in diameter. Ratcheting technology multiplies the user’s strength by a factor of as much as seven times, allowing her to cut through a branch in stages, thereby sparing the hands/arms and requiring far less effort than a traditional lopper. Ideal for anyone with arthritis, carpal-tunnel syndrome or other conditions affecting hand, wrist or arm strength, and for anyone simply looking to make her pruning chores easier.

These loppers – Florian’s RL-101 -- feature an anvil-style blade with non-stick coating and "hooknose" to prevent branches from slipping. Generally, anvil cutters are best for dead wood, but we also successfully used this lopper on very-much-alive water sprouts on a maple tree.  Most importantly, the mini lopper made quick, painless work of numerous dead branches on a long day of fall cleanup. To cut with the lopper, simply hold the red/orange-capped handle steady while pumping with the green-capped one. 

Customers have been encouraging us to carry ratcheting pruning tools for some time now. After an attendee at an heirloom festival in Connecticut walked home to retrieve her beloved Florian lopper to show us, we decided to check it out for ourselves. We – and our arms and hands – are very glad we did!

About Florian

Florian Tools are produced by the American Standard Co., a third-generation American company known best for having developed and patented the Ratchet-Cut® pruner. The company’s roots date to 1937, when R. Stuart Florian established American Standard as a job shop for specialized tools, dies and metal stamping. In 1965, American Standard began producing garden tools under the name Florian® Tools. In 1980, Mr. Florian's three sons bought the business from their parents. Eventually Nathaniel Florian, the youngest brother, became 100% owner. Since 1998 Nathaniel has shared ownership with his son Sean and daughter-in-law, Beth Florian. Based in Southington, CT, the company employs 20 people.
