This is an awesome tool. I bought the logox lifter by itself as I already have the other tools, and didn't need the timber jack or pickeroon. I really appreciate that they sell the parts individually. It is really well engineered and built to last. Yes, it should be around for 100 years.

It’s a great tool. I also have one it absolutely makes hailing cutting wood much much easier. I would love to visit Sweden 🇸🇪 Sending the best of wishes to you from Long Island NY America 🇺🇸
Will Tricks (4 days ago)
Seems a good idea and you show it does work,however small pins in that work space are easily lost, only one use at a time so only one worker at a time can use it and log hook and tongs are not heavy. Speaking from experiance of long walks into the woods every day of winter for years. Not a criticisem Cheers WIll

One thing to watch for over time... repetitive lifting in that manner can cause tennis elbow, causing pain where the top of the fore arm meets the elbow. It's easier to do as you get older and your tendons weaken. I've raked so much mulch in my life that I managed to do it to myself. It can take 6 months to 2 years to recover.

Dave Moulton (4 days ago)
Or you could leave the logs on the trailer and cut them that way and use the pickaroon to pull the wood forward that way like you said that your not always bending over

Another tool I will dream about to own one. Just to believe my husband will have the same dreams :-) Thank you for sharing

Excelent for the Back ! You don't need to bend. Great invention.
I bought this tool last spring. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Sure can save your back. Too bad it got a bit expensive in Canada though. But all in all, very sturdy and awesome quality.

Nice, usually multi tools are just ok with everything. Just found your channel, do you do reviews of chainsaws that aren't quite professional grade? Like for people who cut firewood, but not professionally.
Boy I need this up here on the farm, very good for fire wood!
TheKajunkat (6 days ago)
It looks like a great tool. My only reservation would be with the pins and spring clips. I would have to have a dozen spares because I lose small stuff like that in the leaf litter all the time. I wonder if they could put captive pins like they use on rifles or at least tethered spring clips.

LogOX (6 days ago)
Hi Reg, Tractor Supply Company in Canada carries the LogOX 3-in-1 Forestry MultiTool online and we do ship to Canada directly through our website. I'd compare the two prices and see which one is cheaper when you factor in shipping.
Bill Richards (6 days ago)
I bought one, and I love it, but overpriced. I bought 2 of the wood chuck tools for the same price as the log lifter. Each. The can’t hook and the log lifter.
julie r (6 days ago)
I appreciate the honest review, but to me it looks too much like reinventing the wheel. Parts and pins and clips to get lost, a log jack I’d rarely use. I’ll stick with my peavy and pulp hook. If I’m going into the woods I’m not carrying the saw, gas, oil and other tools on my back anyway, so...

slycat1939 (6 days ago)
Nice video. Very informative for them loggers out there. My husband did all our firewood from nearby woods. He used his truck to haul and also cut the wood from the back of it. Was much easier for him and less bending. I am not sure if he would like this tool but seems nice to have around for them logging guys out there. Looking forward to seeing the finished cow shelter. Did I miss that video. We are getting our first snow tomorrow here in Kansas City Kansas. Cold weeks ahead. Had an awesome colorful fall season. God bless you all always.

Great video. Can you tell me if your farm has been sustained with wood from your forest and do you plant any new trees in it to help it keep it sustained at all? Or, does it need it at all?
Dina Tarini (7 days ago)
Keeping your back healthy is important, looks like a good product.
ukulelefatman (7 days ago)
You should cut your wood on the end of the trailer. You could cut a few logs at the same time, then slide them all off the end another meter and cut again. No need for the jack and much faster.
michiel pater (7 days ago)
It seems to work nicely, I just don't see myself reconfigure the thing all the time. It'll probably stay in one position, and the spare parts will get dusty ..
John McNerney (5 days ago)
I’m curious how you think the log hauler part of this tool compares to the Husqvarna Timber Lifting Tongs you showed in another video. I’ve owned the tongs myself for years, and appreciate the light weight, how they fit in the holster on my belt, and how they lift round logs without bending. I think the tongs are a better fit for how I work in the woods and for lifting rounds onto my splitter (this log hauler looks as though the handle is too long for convenient lifting to waist high or higher), but I’d love to hear your opinion

I'm with you on the back problems, only with me it's arthritis and back problems. Nothing worse than being freakishly strong with arthritis and back problems. I love how you were using it as an arm extender. The pick looks interesting but yeah, that's not designed for things like Black Locust, it'd just glance off but most wood it'd work especially if you got a good swing to bury the tip. Okay, that's an awesome sawbuck, that was so easy it almost looked like cheating. Most of the stuff I'm cutting and grinding right now is as big as my arm but I'd still love to have one. Another great video.
Tina Richards (7 days ago)
I’ve seen Shawn James use this tool but he’s not to sure about the use of it. I think you had a better demo of it, since you have more knowledge of the tools. So thanks.
Nana Ann (7 days ago)
Swedish Homestead Here's a suggestion for you, after reading the comment from Lesa Hanners. She's having her husband look at this on Amazon. See if you can put this video on Amazon. If there isn't a way to put it there in YouTube form, write a review and provide the link to here. Every view helps when it comes to YouTube monetization :)

Julian Easton (7 days ago)
I saw this on another you tube channel a few days ago, but I have doubts about how long the leg of the timberjack might last as it looks a little fragile. It looks as if you overload it the weld may well give out. Also the foot of it is quite a small diameter and (as noted from that other channel) if the ground you're working on is soft, it can easily sink in and you lose the advantage of raising the log really clear of the ground. But as yet I'm not sure if it's available here in UK. Any way Simeon thanks again for another well explained video and good luck with your trip to the USA.
LogOX (7 days ago)
+Julian Easton You're welcome. That's perfectly understandable, we're working on making the LogOX available in the UK and Europe via Amazon again soon. We'll be making the announcement once it's available on our social media @bigbluelogox and through our LogOX Mailing List, which you can sign up for on our website.
Julian Easton (7 days ago)
+LogOX Thanks for your response, as it is I am currently looking at UK sites that can supply your product as it keeps the shipping costs down and being a pensioner I have to try a be a little thrifty.
LogOX (7 days ago)
Hi Julian, The LogOX is made of hollow frame American steel and quite strong. A 12" diameter log is about the limit of what you'd want to lift with it. For larger logs, we recommend making cuts 3/4 of the way through the log, then rolling it over with the cant hook to complete them. We also back up our tools with a lifetime guarantee against manufacturer's defect. When working on soft ground you're correct, any timberjack is going to loose effectiveness as it gets bogged down. In that case, we'd recommend using the cant hook to roll it over instead, as you would with a larger log. We've shipped quite a few LogOX to the UK and Europe over the past few years from our website www.thelogox.com
CiaoBella (7 days ago)
Great tools. Or, to use some American slang, nice "get-up" (rig) ;-) Gotta protect that back!

Frode Haugsgjerd (7 days ago)
The ergonomics are not that great if you want to use this tool to lift up to your waste height, you are moving the work from your tighs to you shoulders. Use the tried and true scissor claw, bend your knees and keep the load within your centre of gravity instead.
William Bowen (6 days ago)
It doesn't make a great life preserver either
Frode Haugsgjerd (7 days ago)
+Swedish Homestead Sure, I don't want to come off as a curmudgeon here, and I welcome new tools. Do the reviews, but take care of your integrity. You are probably mindful of this already, and know that it's a fine line.
Swedish Homestead (7 days ago)
Sure, it is not good for lifting to waste height. But for firewood operations you won't have to do any knee or back bending to lift up logs. You swing the smaller pieces on the splitter.
Frode Haugsgjerd (7 days ago)
I don't want to fiddle around to build the tool I need. My shop teacher in mechanic school kept repeating that a universal tool is never as good as a purpose built tool, he was right. That thing is way to heavy to cary around all day in your belt, unless you're a giant. But do continue your tool reviews, something good might pop up.
julie r (6 days ago)
Agreed Frode. I’ve worked in the woods and construction too long, I know how bags and parts and pins and clips end up.
Swedish Homestead (7 days ago)
I agreed with you in my review for certain tasks but there are settings where multi tools come in handy.
WalkOn Bye (7 days ago)
Seperate tools would be better. Too much messing around.
dobrigkeit (4 days ago)
Good point. The LogOx makes perfect sense if you are working alone: roll, buck, and then transport. That said, I'm not aware of anyone who *advises* working alone with a chainsaw.... it's kind of like scuba diving (or flying) solo. For separate tools, there are very attractive alternatives: https://youtu.be/k2LI5GxwGVk
Swedish Homestead (7 days ago)
Like I said in the video I agree with you with a setup like we have at the sawmill. I think if you go deep into the woods to cut firewood this is very good. The hauler itself is very good though.
Martin H (7 days ago)
If you drive your axe into the face of the log, you have a perfectly good handle to pick it up and carry it without bending.
A LeBlanc (7 days ago)
Thanks Simeon. It's not something I would use, but I'm not a big property owner and don't harvest and process my own firewood; however, I can see how it would help those who do. Thanks again for sharing and spreading the word on something you like.

3000kr? What, are you nuts? lol My peavy hook, pickaroon and timmersax were about 600kr for all three.

This tool looks durable but I’m not impressed with anything that requires pins and clips and constant assembling. I’ll stick with my pulp hook and peavy, both of which are 40+ years old and still doing fine.

How do you work with trees and not use gloves? I had a thorn pierce my glove easily entering my finger a few weeks ago while cutting down a few bushes and trees. They don't offer 100% protection but I won't even cut grass without em'..
dirtyshirtinfo (4 days ago)
bitsnpieces11 I first saw a glove I could use watching guys in the NASCAR pits. Light and dexterous. Been wearing them ever since - what we know to be Mechanix gloves. I buy about 4 pair per year. I always wear out the tips of the index and middle finger. I work in an office and don’t want my hands looking like hamburger.
bitsnpieces11 (6 days ago)
I found some Stainless Steel chain mail gloves on Amazon and got a pair, they apparently got started for people who do knife work cutting up meat and fish.  They work great to keep your hands uncut, use with leather gloves over them for grip.  But I suppose they wouldn't keep out thorns.
Nana Ann (7 days ago)
jgonzz10028 If that's the kind of wood you have to deal with, get yourself some Kevlar gloves. Kevlar protects against knives, metal cuts, etc. Hand injuries are no joke. My son sliced a finger doing work on his ship in the Navy. He needed to be transported to their top hand surgeon for the operation. As a mom, I was a bit ticked those type gloves weren't standard issue.
