Skidding Tongs are made of round high-carbon steel and have heavy up-set, hammer-forged points or hooks. High carbon steel is noted for its stiffness and extra strength. The sides are flattened evenly where they pivot. This gives a larger bearing surface and allows for the pivot to be shorter and of a larger diameter.The tongs are shaped so that a good grip is obtained on straddled logs and poles. The hooks are heat treated to resist straightening. The tongs are made with a forged ring. Skidding tongs are intended for pulling or skidding material and are not load rated. They must not be used for overhead lifting.

Timber Lifting Tongs

All tongs are tested. Each unit is tagged with rated load and a seriel number. Test data is supplied with each tong. Tags must remain on units at all times. Warranty is void if the tag is removed or tampered with.
