PLEASE REMOVE THE SHARPENER/OILER FROM HANDLE OF THE PRUNER PRIOR TO FIRST USE AND STORE IN A SAFE PLACE. DO NOT STORE IT IN THE HANDLE AS IT IS NOT MEANT FOR LONG TERM STORAGE. FAILURE TO REMOVE PRIOR TO USE WILL RESULT IN THE LOSS OF THE SHARPENER/OILER.
When using the lopper keep in mind and please tell all others that are going to be using the tool that you do not have to use the same force as you would with a regular lopper. When it becomes hard to squeeze, you are at the dead spot – where the blade hits the handle, you cannot go any further even if you were the strongest man or women on earth - open up the handle slightly until you hear a click and not any further. You do not want the jaw to leave the wood, otherwise you will lose what gear you are in and it will not allow the ratchet to work properly. Then squeeze the handle together again until it gets hard again. Repeat this same process of squeezing and releasing one click anywhere from 1-5 times depending on the thickness of the wood that you are working with. In addition, always try to get the wood as far into the jaw of the tool as possible. By using these processes, you will be exerting 7 times less force therefore not putting as much stress on your hands or on the tool itself.
Using the Lopper with the blade on the left will keep the handles locked better than having it on the right.
