I like the kick-stand function. We use a standard old cant hook my neighbor has had for years. It has a long wooden handle. No question they are a big help. Seeing your vid. it couldn't be much of a challenge to built one.

That's a nice looking tool. Perfect as you say, to keep the chain away from the ground. Thanks for the post.

I'm from Saskatchewan, so I just get my little brother to put his foot there. He used to be my big brother. Those of you from the US can substitute Arkansas for Saskatchewan if you need to understand, or maybe not.

That looks like a very handy tool. Like Caseguy, I've used a cant hook (we called them log-poles, but like I said, I'm from Saskatchewan) and this looks like the improved version. Way better than wrestling logs up onto sawhorses.

As for quality, etc., I'd just pay attention to how the pivot point is put together. If that part is well-built, I'm pretty sure the rest will be too.

That is a tool I need to invest in, keep saying that and haven't yet but this spring I will be cutting up quite a few logs left from the tree clearing at the in-laws and that will be my excuse. I haven't really looked at brands/mfgrs yet. Guess I'd better get on the "stick" :laughingteeth:

Your brother must be a pretty forgiving guy...............I heard you fella's from Saskatchewan had some pretty interesting ways of doing things. lol
