Gardening Gone Wild’s Spring Giveaway: Fiskars PowerGear2 Loppers

– Posted in: Contests and Giveaways


Gardening Gone WIld's Giveaway-Fiskar Loppers

It’s not often that I take a company up on their offer for a giveaway. My rule of thumb is that I have to have tried the product for some time and really like it before I give it away to GardeningGoneWild readers.

When Fiskars approached me, I didn’t hesitate. I specifically asked them for their PowerGear2 Loppers for our readers. Out of all of the loppers that I bought and received from companies over the close to 30 years that I gardened in Philadelphia, Fiskars was one of my favorites. This lopper is light weight, easy to use, durable, and efficient.

Along the lines of ‘you have to kiss a bunch of frogs,’ you must try a number of Loppers to find a perfect one.

Fiskars garden tools are lightweight and efficient to use in the garden. We have the Fiskar shears and love using them to maintain our garden.

I have wanted to try/buy a pair of these loppers ever since I got tendinitis in my wrist from hauling my (then) baby around on my hip. now that he is three, I had hoped my wrists were re-gaining their strength, but as I discovered this spring they had not. I cannot prune but three branches with my old loppers without re-injuring my wrists. Needless to say, this puts a BIG damper on my gardening efforts. I would love to try the fiskars in hopes that they would solve my dilemma! I will share the giveaway on my website.
