A cross between a lopper and an electric chainsaw, this innovative tool will make cleaning up the yard less of a chore.

Answer: 
You can either use straight 30 motor oil or bar and chain oil according to the manual.
I'm using straight 30 because I had some laying around.

I need a light weight one for fruit tree pruning. I'm debating on this one or the B+D 3.4 Amp Powered Handsaw. Is this alligator lopper able to cut flush to the main limbs or does it leaves little stubs? Thank you!

Answer: 
I used this for ground level and you can get it pretty flush but you will have to snug it up to the tree or bush. Got it low enough to use the mower with no trouble. Easy to use and sharpen of you need to. This is my second one. It's lighter and easier than a chain saw

I am digging a whole for a shrub and have come across a thick tree branch root that is in the way (a remnant from a tree that had been removed). My manual hand loppers won't cut it out. Will the electric loppers work?

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 187 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed This product has some issues... cannot really tell if the auto oiler is working proper; I have a fair amount of chainsaw experience, and you should be able to tell if the chain is getting oiled ok... cannot with this. The chain does not clear wood debris very well, and it gets hung up and creates a "log jam" which needs to be cleared way too often... the clogs ultimately made the chain "derail", thus having to disassemble and re-align the chain onto the bar... so a productive day of brush clearing turned into a frustrating day of alligator taming and unnecessary fiddling around... Creates a lot of snarling on behalf of the user... along with some words my wife doesn't like... July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Black and Decker Alligator 6in. 4.5 amp electric lopper I had an Alligator lopper for more than 10 years and either I used it or my adult kids used it on an almost weekly basis. Sadly, we wore it out. I went online to find out that I could still find them, online only, at Home Depot. Happily, the price had gone down by more than $30.00, and the shipping was free! I ordered it on Monday and received it on Thursday! I am a very happy person! We can once again use the Alligator, instead of hauling out the large noisy chainsaw for our small jobs in our yards.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A must have tool for the DIYer I was really pleased with the performance of this tool. I used it a significant amount over the course of an 8 hour period with absolutely no problems whatsoever! It was safe enough for me to allow my young teen nephews to use with now worries (supervised, of course). I cut through 4 in limbs with very little effort at all. The ONLY reason I did not give it a 5th star was the oil reservoir. Having to stop every ten minutes to oil the bar is annoying, and I'll admit i exceeded that limit a few times with no noticeable issues. The oil bottle that comes with the product is a piece of garbage, but that is not an issue with the unit. A separate oilier will do nicely. June 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love my lopper! I have always been afraid to use a typical chain saw to trim my trees. Not so with this electric lopper! I've only had it a few weeks, but so far it has made trimming branches and cutting up small limbs easy. I was amazed I could not locate this in ANY store and had to order it on line. Home Depot - You should stock this in your store so more people know about it! July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy Alligator I bought the original alligator 5 years ago. Wore out the original battery, and the second is still usable. It is heavy, and I see the battery type is not made anymore. Possibly to lighten it up. Still using the original chain. It is tired and I tried to get replacement chains and that was impossible. I see home depot is selling it now but it must be ordered. Could not do that before. Do your self a favor and get the spare chain. The chain is what keeps this one I have going, It stayed sharp, so the battery lasts a longer time. Being electric now is good, but I used this far from the house. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Must have garden tool! Love this tool! Perfect for shrubs that are too small for chainsaw. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best tool ever!! I love my alligator. This tool is so easy to use and it cuts just about anything. A great house warming present for friends or family who is buying a house. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alligator is helpful The alligator is handy when you have small limbs to cut up. July 5, 2016
