I have an older Fiskars lopper that looks much like this one
Unfortunately years of cutting things that shouldn't have been cut by
it caused knicks in the cutting jaw so it was time for a new one,
preferably longer handle too.
I went to Harbor Freight since I had a coupon and bought something
similar to this http://hfreviews.com/item.php?idg0 What a complete
piece of junk it was! You would think with extendable handles and a
ratcheting head it could cut branches better but it absolutely sucked
so I went back to the worn out chipped Fiskars.
Back to the Fiskars brand and now I have one like this

so why didn't you get the Fiskars with the gears?
I'm not sure mine are Fiskars- but I've had them a decade and am still
surprised at how nicely they slice things off.

Harbor freight is good for ticky-tacky tools that you don't expect
much from, or use only once a year or less. You have to pick and
choose when you go to their store.

I've had a few companies do similar things. I had an Ames hose reel
that started leaking at the bearings. Went on their site to order
parts and there weren't any prices. They were free, including
shipping. Same deal with Irwin clamps (and I just lost those pieces).
