Northern Industrial Log Hook
do yourself a very big favor
I do a fair bit of logging, field clearing and firewood cutting in the course of any given year. I have all manner of tools; both powered and mechanical. Bottom line: I prefer hand-held simple tools, and these log hooks are excellent tools at a super value for the money. Sure, the quality of the steel could be better. Yes, you need to sharpen them upon receipt and periodically thereafter.
But... they will save your back and increase your productivity time and again. Simple physics to the rescue. Don't hesitate - they won't let you down.

This hook doesn't work. It doesn't feel like you have much control with the handle. The angle that you have to hit the log with to get it to stick in is very awkward.

Called a Pulp Hook
This is better than sliced bread. Most logs I handle are 3 feet and I have gone through dozens of gloves at the finger tip trying to wrestle these logs off the trailer and onto the splitter. If you handle logs and don't own one of these you are missing out. Every buddy I know that burns wood I have taken this little tool to them to show how easy they can handle the wood. It feels very natural in your hand and is real plus to your logging accessories. A must have!

Tool is ok, handle should be stationary.width of handle is quite large making it cumbersome even for myself having x-large hands. Able to pick up large firewood length logs with ease.

They call them log hooks but I call them pulp hooks and have been using them since the mid seventies.
This is truly a work smarter not harder tool and have three in my kit. They literley put a handle on a piece of wood making it easyer to move it.
Without my "hooks", I would not move as much firewood as I do.
Got a four fool lenght of small stuff ? hook one end and lift it into the cradle of your off arm, now hook the other end and lift, now carry it to where you want.
Got a piece that is too heavy? Stick a hook into each end and you and a partner can move it.
Order out a couple and you will wonder how you got along without them.

It saves a lot of bending way over and getting really dirty. I use it to snatch un-split firewood onto a skid so I don't have to do any real lifting. Works great... I move 60- 100 pound blocks with much less effort than I did before the hook.
Simple and fast.

Log Hook Works Well
I got the Northern Log Hook for Christmas (my wife expects just about anything from my Christmas list) and I've been using it to pull cut would loose from the snow, empty my firewood trailer and to pry logs up from the frozen ground so I can get my timberjack on them to cut them. The hook's a heavy duty piece with a hefty point that lets it stick in the wood. Overall, my Northern timberjack and the log hook are a great combination.

Great Tool, but...
I love this hook. It's nearly perfect to help move smaller logs and cut pieces when getting them on the splitter. No need to bend and lift as much. My only complaint is that the wooden handle is not stationary---it spins on the bolt like an empty toilet paper roll. I know this is by design, but it would be easier to swing in o a log if it was stationary.

bent end over on first log, weak metal sending it back.
