That one on donedeal is unbranded as far as I can see. It might be sound, but go with your instinct I think - you get what you pay for in most things.

A good brand like Lister is a friend for life if you mind it, and it will hold a secondhand value to some degree unlike brand X

hey roosky did you get the €145 shears in the end?

have a small number of sheep at the moment but am building up numbers so considering either the shears you mentioned or going for a the lister linked below (€210 + shipping).

If you have got them are they man enough for say 50 sheep in a day?

anybody else with experience with these type of shears?
