Someone suggested this to me, and I have no idea what it is?
a loper is a pruning tool with long handles...gives you more leverage for thicker stems/branches. Great for taking smaller limbs off of trees. If buy one, get a good one as the cheap ones have the problem of the blade edges not holding their edge when doing tougher, thicker wood.
1 : any of the usually rather small hairless caterpillars that are mostly larvae of moths (families Geometridae and Noctuidae) and move with a looping movement in which the anterior legs and the posterior prolegs are alternately made fast and released -- called also inchworm
2 : one that loops
one who moves or rides at a lope
a long handled bush trimming cutting tool

While we're at it, we might as well add that there are two different types of cutting edge mechanisms on loppers. There is what is called the "bypass" type, which is shown above (thanks Gopher), and there is the "anvil" type, where the blade just pushes against a flat base surface.
I couldn't resist
I enjoyed that. You just proved by point. I had do damn idea what a looper, loper, or even a lopper was. My education has been increased.
