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?
Here's what I bought, it is certainly not work the price they have on it now, $100. Many other options available from either Northern Tool or Amazon.Can you throw me a link , can't find it at TSC
I see a lot of guys under the impression they need to spend $30k to get a decent tractor. Had this very conversation with a new neighbor just the other day. You can buy a heck of a lot of Ford for $2500 - $3500, if you don't mind going old. I was shopping machines with loaders for $4500 - $5500, before I bit the bullet and got a newer (meaning only 30 years old) hydrostatic unit for $8500. It will easily outlive me, at my <100 hours per year rate of use, these things were build to run 500 - 1500 hours per year.Man, I wish I had a tractor! We’re saving up.
