    Any thoughts on what type of timber jack handle is better wood or metal? Any opinions if they work as good as they say?

    I usually prefer wood handles on tools. As for the timber jack, I have one I've tried to give away because I found them to be more bother than worth. It is just much faster and certainly easier to just cut the log on the ground. Better to buy a cant hook than the timber jack. Then if you need the log rolled, the cant hook makes simple work of it. I rarely go to the woods without it.

    Nothing compares to aluminum handled Logrite tools. I have a cant hook, and use it quite a bit. They are kinda pricey, but you'll never have to buy another. They are that well made.
    They do have a jack you can add to it if you want a timberjack. I've never used one, and doubt that I ever would.
