This thing is built! The add said fiberglass handle, it didn't say it was 1.80 in. diameter solid fiberglass! Without the timberjack it weighs 15 lbs., the steel sleeve is pinned to the handle. At 39.99 + 15.00 shipping, it was a deal. http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200357988_200357988 I didn't buy it for the timberjack, I like to cut and roll. Haven't had a chance to use it, but I have no complaints about the construction. Will report when I get to use it.
