I have some large White Pine that the October Super Storm that hit NJ took down. These are on the ground and need to cut the trunks into lenghts I can handle, move. I don't specifically plan to split for fire wood, but I need to cut rounds in the 20" of shorter length to make them moveable. I am considering buying a Timer Jack, which I've never used, nor have I ever seen one used. They appear from the advertisements capable of rolling a 20" diameter log up off the ground far enough to cut withoiut running the chain saw into the ground. One target log is about 20' long and at least 20" in diameter, I'll guess 500 pounds. There are other smaller diameter logs that I think a Log Jack will work on. I'd like no to spend more than $100. Looking for advice and recommendations, including doing something else. I am going to try this week end to use my heavy steel digging bar (must be about 6' long and and 40 pound of steel) with a a couple of pieces of 2x4 to pry the big log up a couple of inches and then stick another piece of 2x4 underneath the log. Does this sound like something that will work? In my mind it may be one of those jobs that reallly requires two people, one to shove the 2x4 under while the other lifts the log with the pry bar.
