I'm not sure. I use the 30" hookaroon a lot for dragging timber around in the woodlot. If I had a nice D handle on the end of it, my arthritis wouldn't hurt near as bad from having to hang on to the hookaroon as hard. I know I'm mis-using that hookaroon but it's just so handy to stab and drag stuff! And it's held up to alot, I must say. I'm 6'2" and weigh around 270 so I can lean into her pretty good, at least for a little while till my hands and back quit working.
I've never used a pulp hook. Not for timber, at least, only for hay bales a little back in the day to see if I liked it. I preferred use using the twine.
I'm needing something that I don't have to lean down to use, that I can swing-stab a log and drag it around and be able to hang on easier without just relying on a squeeze grip. Do you have any suggestions for this? I have a pair of timber tongs that are quite handy but I have to bend over every time to use them. I know this sounds like a pansy-ish thing to say (about the bending over), but I have degenerative spine disease. The less bending, the better off I am.
