To reduce time, effort and risk of mishaps, this sturdy tool elevates a log, allowing you to cut from the top or bottom to avoid pinching the bar or chain or dulling the teeth through contact with the ground. But what sets it apart from other log jacks is the versatile design, expanding its utility by offering alternative ways to secure a piece of timber for cutting.
In its basic application, it functions first as a cant hook, making easier work of rolling logs from 6" to 20" in diameter into position. Then, using the 45" handle for leverage, you can simply pivot the log over so it rests on the two support legs, which keep the log raised 5 1/2".
You can also mount the jack onto a vehicle's trailer hitch (requires a receiver hitch post, sold separately) or to a stout tree, then lift the log into the self-adjusting jaws; logs from 2" to 8" in diameter and up to 20' long are held securely, cantilevered at a comfortable height so you can quickly make a series of crosscuts without having to stoop or reposition the log.
Finally, it also functions as a post-lifter, allowing you to apply considerable leverage when prying a post from the ground. Weighing 12 lb, it is ruggedly made from aircraft aluminum and stainless steel with a hard-wearing powder-coat finish to resist rust and damage. A real back saver.
