- With a felling jack, you can safely fell small and medium-sized trees or let them fall in the desired direction after sawing. The prerequisite for this is a sturdy, long handle with a front part that is as flat as possible.
- Most felling jacks come with a 115 to 130 cm long handle. They are suitable as a wedge replacement when felling trees with a breast height diameter of up to 25 cm.
- Compact versions with a length of 75- or 80-cm are also available. However, these are only suitable for smaller logs with a breast height diameter of 20 cm less.
- Since you exert a lot of force on a felling jack, it should be made of high-quality steel.
- Small models weigh about 1.5 kg and larger models (up to 130 cm) 4 kg.
- Felling jacks with turning aid allow you to easily turn logs lying on the ground.
- In some models, the turning aid together with the hand gripper allows you to transport or lift the logs.
- Many handy models come with a turning hook. These are adjustable and thus well adaptable to the tree height.
- The handle end of a felling jack is often slightly angled and provided with a non-slip material. It should be safe to grip even when wearing gloves.
