Black & Decker GK1000 Alligator Powered Lopper 550w 240v + FREE Chainsaw Oil Worth £4.95

Operating a chainsaw, even for experienced users, can be a dangerous proposition. Kickback is a constant risk, & if a proper grip is not maintained the consequences could be disastrous.

Black & Decker's unique GK1000 Alligator Loppers have been built to integrate the heavy duty cutting performance of a conventional chainsaw into a tool that is also exceptionally safe to use - for amateurs & experts alike. Designed like an ordinary pair of loppers, but with a fully enclosed, powerful chainsaw blade housed in the upper jaw, the GK1000's innovative design grips branches & fallen logs in place while you cut, completely eliminating the risk of kickback. Thanks to a sizeable 550W motor, sawing through even the toughest woods is a simple matter, & branches up to 4" in diameter can be severed with complete ease.

Features & Benefits:
• Works just lika a manual lopper but with the power of a chainsaw
• Fully enclosed bar and chain
• Easy use all around the garden
• Easy oil
• Powerful motor
• Lopper style dual switch handles

Good for tree pruning and chopping branches off felled trees. Hates bamboo! quite heavy after a long stint working horizontally.

Great product and great service. I bought an alligator about 12 years ago and it is still going strong but i just fancied having a new one, especially as it came with a spare chain that i can put on the old one. i wouldn't be without it - you can cut quite large branches easily and it is safer than a chainsaw.

I am 63yr old and i am so plsd with the alligator lopper. so easy to handle and cuts through branches very easily- heaven! Instructions are very clear to follow. Handling the lopper when running is a similar action to using cutting shears, but easier. What a good buy.

Does what it claims and a bit more. I use it to remove big woody stems from our field hedge. Loppers are beaten by size. Hedge cutters, bow saws and chain saws don't cope because the stems move about. The 'gator traps and destroys. Grrrr!

Phenomenal product. After my paraffin burner to start bonfires it is the best product i've ever bought. we use this pretty much every day during the summer and have had it 3 years and have replaced the battery fro about £30 once. Haven't needed any yet but parts are very cheap and easy to find. happily cuts branches unto about 5 inches wide. If you can get access to both sides then you can cut possibly a 8 inch branch. with reasonable expectations you can cut roughly 30 inch or 60 3 inch boughs. Its not a chain saw as such, so has some limitations, but for going around the garden cutting off branches quickly and efficiently its a godsend. Highly recommend.

Brilliant design and feels much safer than a normal chainsaw to use. However i have bought 2 of these and both of them have suffered motor failues and had to be thrown away. I was very careful not to overload these saws and therefore could not recommend one due to the very short lifespan of a few hours of use for me.
