Waste of money

,
August 5, 2014
By Asymair95
from California
"Mine broke on the first day I used it. It wasn't a very large log and snapped right where the wooden handle enters the steel shank. The wood handle was very brittle and had little strength. The steel part seemed to be made OK, but I would pass on this one."

"If you used a chain saw before you know as soon as you hit dirt your blade is done. This worked well in getting the logs off the ground hen cutting. Very strong but light and handy tool to have.
Added Bonus: Will work great as a weapon in a zombie apocalypse.

Log roller

"Struggled whether to buy this, since it was half the price of others, that were recommended. Took a chance. What a surprise. This worked great for rolling logs, so my chainsaw wouldn't cut into the ground. Was cutting fallen trees, some 15" diameter, and this tool worked great. Well worth themoney. Had shipped to store, for free, and showed up in a couple of days. Already recommended to a neighbor"

Save your back and your chain

,
February 4, 2014
By Kathie
from Michigan
"This tool lifts the log out of the dirt and snow, saving wear on your chain and and your back. We use it on logs from 4 inches to about 16 inches in diameter. It is very durable and easy to use. I've thought about getting a heavier version because...well, bigger is better, right? Then I think, why? This one handles it all."

By backwoods123

"This timberjack is very well made and heavy duty. It makes moving and cutting large logs a whole lot easier. The price was great (AND I got it on sale) and the shipping was very fast. I can handle and cut a lot more wood with a lot less effort. I highly recommend this timberjack."

Very Useful Tool

,
February 4, 2014
By MJ225
from SC
"The timberjack has saved me considerable time (and dull chainsaw chains). It works very well for its intended use - getting felled logs off of the ground for easier cutting. The handle is comfortable and very strong. The stand allows a heavy log to be levered up with relative ease. The only problem I have encountered is that because the stand is about 90 deg to the handle, on uneven ground the weight of the log will sometimes tip the handle up and the log goes back to the ground."
