    Is that image correct? I'm trying to determine the correct part number for my loppers so that I can order parts. All it says on the lopper blades is "Sandvik P 16 Made In France." If I measure the handles like in the above image, I get about 18.5 inches. If I measure from the very tip of the blades to the very end of the handles, I get about 23.25 inches. My loppers are probably either a Bahco P16-40, P16-50, or a P16-60. Not sure which. Thanks.

    The loppers I just purchased are sold as 31" loppers. That is the overall length. The handles are 24". Pics coming.

    RussellB, have you determined the model number of yours?

    If you can figure out the model number, then with those measurements, I could figure out mine. Thanks for taking the time to post the pictures. Much appreciated.

    I don't see a model # in the info page or paperwork. I'll check the pruners in the morning to see if a model # is stamped on them. I purchased these from Gemblers and this is the info page on their website. Hope it helps you out.
