Anvil Lopper
Let a rough-cutting anvil lopper do the grunt work of chopping off thicker dead branches (up to 2 inches) or trimming back live ones before you make the final cut with bypass loppers.

Shown: The short handles on this model are easier to maneuver inside tight shrubs, and an extra gear increases cutting power. About $28;
