What design attributes make the difference between lifting and skidding tongs?

The lifting tongs are made from alloy steel and outfitted with a load tag, satisfying industry standards for lifting products.† The blue tongs are not alloy nor do they have a load tag.

Works great!
March 13, 2021
Iíve used it the past two weekends to move some logs to split and also to move some dead trees we cut down. Even though I just chained it to the bucket of my tractor, it still worked great. Chains and chokers work nice but the tongs grab on so fast that it made moving trunks around a one man job and a lot faster than chains or chokers.
Pros
  • Grabs onto trunks or logs really fast.
  • No getting on and off the tractor to set chains or chokers.
Cons
  • None. This thing is awesome!

Made in USA - great. Worked great / time saver. Immediate grab - never missed. Dropped a 36" X 70' tree. Suspended tongs from 3 pt hitch boom (Tractor Supply). Cut tree to firewood length pieces (>30 large pcs 30" X 15"). Lowering tongs to grab piece by cross section was a never miss. Lifted, transported to site of splitter, while suspended sliced section off each side to allow manual handling to splitter, placed all pieces in a trailer that was splitter height. When 'log' (chunk) bottoms out, tongs auto release - beautiful ! Repeat operation. Moved over 3 tons of chunks 300 ft. to splitter in less than 1 hour. Ordered a 2nd tong (boom has 2 attach points) to lift up to 8 ft. logs by placing a tong on each side of the center of gravity (one man operation).
