Tongs and chain with hooks came from a tool company that is not allowed to be talked about on this forum. Now Please read the Forestry Forum's postion on this company. Tongs $169.

I had seen and used a single tong with another guy loading logs with a boom pole on the back of his tractor. So, when I found the double tong I bought one for myself. They seem to be very well made and are HEAVY.

As with any tools and equipment, always use with caution. Anything that is man made can fail

Ford 545D with grapple.
The HEAVY lifter is in the background.


I posted a winter picture - hoping it would give a little relief to the 'over-heated' Southerners on the Forum.  ;D
