I have never seen a guy using Logrites like "chopsticks".   :D  He actually had one in each hand.   I believe that those two new Orange Logrites got into his eyes.  I counted then before he left.   ;)

I got a very nice compliment on my Logrites on this week's road trip saw job.  The customer's Mother was watching me unload the truck and prepare for sawing.  When I lifted the three Logrites out, she saw them and commented that they looked very professional.  This was from a lady that no idea what they were or what they might be used for.  She only knew that she was impressed by them.

I continue to be also.

They are not made in China, so you do not need chopsticks  :).

In Reply #40 above, I laughed at Dodgy Loner using two Logrites like chopsticks.  Maybe it is "catching".

me and my boys love my Logrite.  My 8 year old can roll logs with me onto the mill with it.  it makes him feel real good to move a big log around just be having the right tool.  sometime I want to get a 42" also.
I cut it twice and it's still too short

Without the Logrite Megahook, I would have been toast today.  But, I was able to turn a 24" red oak by myself, although it was a challenge  ;D

I usually use the tractor on those....or a chainsaw amd splitter...

One trick, with the LT-15 GO....I snagged the hook off a cheap cant hook, and stuck a screwgate carabiner on it...wrap the winch cable around a heavy log that I cannot turn, hook into the log amd tension the winch cable, then get on it with  the Logrite and move it as far as i can..then do it again. Sucks, but works.
