Those gear driven loppers look like they would  work well instead of the single pivot.   I have not seen that design before.   I have one with the single pivot, been using it for years.

My wife has a pair of those, been using them for a few years without problems. Short handle version, light weight and very powerful.

I thought at first glance those compound loppers might be H K Porter and sure enough they were .

FWIW that company made a complete line of heavy duty bolt cutters ,cable crimpers etc .

I have Corona loppers that have worked well for me. Those Fiskars look nice too.
