Castellari s.r.l. have been manufacturing high quality horticulture tools for over 30 years. The L.I. technology draws from the combination of three of Italy’s best smitheries.
The CASTELLARI L.I. LOPPER is unique by way of its design, the special lever cutting action, counter blade operation, and the weight to size ratio. The lightweight design, strength & reduced cutting effort allows for continuous pruning of fruit trees, grapevines & kiwifruit.
Even with constant use, there is minimal wear on the lever components including the hardened pivot bolts and bushes, and the blades will provide a long lasting cutting edge, requiring only an occasional light hone.
The anvil or counter blade is made from forged aluminium alloy and is designed to reduce cutting blade wear and provide strength. The handles are made from a heavy-duty aluminium race-track extrusion together with highly visible non-slip grips.
We have four CASTELLARI LOPPERS available.
The two straight blade loppers are;
Potatore 60cm With 600mm long handles, a cutting capacity up to 45mm, and an approximate weight of 960g, the CASTELLARI POTATORE 60cm is a very compact ultra lightweight lopper, ideal for any user who would like to make the pruning day more productive and easier. The pointed head allows easy access into tight spaces and often saves changing to secateurs. Suitable for pruning fruit trees, citrus and ideal for grapevines & Kiwifruit.
Tucano M 80cm With 800mm long handles, a cutting capacity up to 50mm, and an approximate weight of 1165g, theCASTELLARI TUCANO M80 is ideal for orchard pruning either from the ground, ladder or hydra ladder. The lightness of the lopper head is particularly apparent when long reaching and will improve productivity by reducing the onset of fatiguemmm
The two curve blade loppers are:
Tucano C 60cm With 600mm long handles, a cutting capacity up to 50mm, and an approximate weight of 1015g, the CASTELLARI TUCANO C60 lopper gives its best in medium to thick cuts and the curvature of the blade and counter-blade prevents the branch from slipping out and the blade hollow increases penetration.
Tucano C 80cm With 800mm long handles, a cutting capacity up to 50mm, and an approximate weight of 1190g, the CASTELLARITUCANO C80 lopper gives its best in medium to thick cuts and the curvature of the blade and counter-blade prevents the branch from slipping out and the blade hollow increases penetration.
