Wood handle is fine here. They'll do everything the fancy ones will.I got one with wooden handle for cheap. 60 bucks few years ago. Been Great. Save the $$ for other things.

Interesting that this unit is much less ambitious than many as far as the height of lift. You only need to get it clear of the ground. Might be more practical for larger logs. I've never used the log-jack foot that came with mine. Being able to roll the log is enough to allow finishing the cut.Looking at this thing .
Would you recommend it? Any other ones I can consider?
