Black and Decker GK1000-GB 550w Alligator Powered Lopper

The 550w Alligator powered lopper from Black and Decker is a revolutionary cutting tool with chainsaw cutting performance in an easy to use and much less intimidating form. Designed like a manual lopper the GK1000 is lightweight and easy to use, whilst the unique jaws and operating handles offer controlled cutting. The lopper’s scissor action allows for fast, easy cutting and is great for pruning trees and shrubs.

 

Power and Performance

The Alligator Powered Lopper jaws offer the ultimate in controlled cutting. This cutting tool has a large cutting capacity (10cm jaw length) which makes light work of branches and logs up to 4"/10cm. The rugged metal guard protects the jaws from damage, whilst the auto oil feature ensures a fully lubricated chain reducing any chance of breakage.

Innovative Design

The design allows the user to use the tool in the same way as a manual lopper but with the added power and cutting performance of a chainsaw. The lopper style dual switch handles provide optimal control and comfort. The lightweight design and fully enclosed bar and chain makes it much easier to handle compared to a standard chainsaw. The rugged metal guards that cover the jaws protect you from the cutting chain and immediately cover the blades once the cut is complete.

Main Uses and Applications

The Alligator Powered Lopper works like a manual lopper however its chainsaw likeness expands its capabilities. The tool can be used to easily prune trees back and remove stubborn branches. The jaws also allow the user to safely cut larger branches down to a smaller size, these logs can then be used for wood burners or just for easier disposal.

Safety

It is important to remember to wear the appropriate safety equipment such as approved safety gloves or goggles (available separately). This ensures full protection for the user against any loose debris that may move towards you. Remember to make sure the branch or log you want to cut is not too big for the lopper as this may damage the jaws. Avoid stretching for out of reach branches to cut as this also may cause injury.
