Black and Decker Alligator Lopper
£60, Black and Decker.com
Ever wondered what it'd be like to be Edward Scissorhands? We are of course joking – can you imagine the self-inflicted mutilation that would go down inside the confines of a toilet cubicle?
Black and Decker's giant pair of scissors is a much safer option. Its wide set of jaws means it chops, chews, clamps, prunes – it even cuts through branches as thick as four inches with its 4.5Amp motor driven chainsaw, making you feel every bit the man with your menacing alligator-shaped power tool.Safety features include guards to ensure you remain completely accident-free.
Best of all, in the event of zombie apocalypse, you'll have your arsenal covered.
