If you have been producing exceptional pruning tools for as long as we have at FELCO you would understand why our thoughts go to every aspect of the experience. Comfort? We’ve got that covered with the FELCO 231 loppers due to the lightweight aluminium alloy handles. Considerations of grip; in this case the curved anvil which holds the branch tight. Quality and efficiency of cut? The hollow-ground blade that simply slices through wood up to 40mm. Our thoughts often result in innovative features, like the gearing system that delivers 65% more cutting strength to users from the minimum of effort. All of this thoughtfulness means that cutting large or small diameters at any height is almost effortless.

Product & Maintenance Tips


It is advisable to clean your tool after each use. If your tool is particularly dirty or subject to rusting after exposure to moisture, do not delay cleaning.


After cleaning, it is advisable to oil the tool so as to protect it from corrosion. The oil will also unjam the tool.


It is advisable to sharpen your tool at least once a day, but if you feel that your tool is not cutting as well as usual, sharpen it right away!


It is advisable to dismantle your tool on a regular basis, but at the very latest when it appears to be jammed.

Changing the blade

When the blade and the anvil-blade no longer cross, or when the blade is badly damaged, it is advisable to change it. Regulate the working of the blade and anvil-blade by adjusting the tightening of the nut. The blade should rub against the anvil-blade o

Changing the anvil-blade

When the blade and anvil-blade no longer cross and the anvil-blade is badly damaged, it is advisable to change it.

Changing the shock absorbers

When the tool closes too abruptly during pruning the shock absorbers should be changed.

Changing the plastic coatings for handles

If the coatings are badly damaged, you can replace them.
