Questions & Answers

1 Question & 1 Answer
from Saluda, SC asked:
October 21, 2019
What size log will this tong lift?  Or how wide will the teeth open?
1 Answer
Technically, the blue tongs are for skidding only, not lifting.  The size of these tongs is 1" x 4" x 20".  The 1" is the material diameter, then 4" is the minimum opening and 20" is the max opening.  The wider you open them, the weaker they are.  They will grab a log up to 20" in diameter, but their ultimate capacity depends on how long the log is, how tough the terrain is, etc.
