The 6 Best Skidding Tongs
This wiki has been updated 9 times since it was first published in January of 2019. If you want a good way to throw your back out in a hurry, try lifting and dragging logs without skidding tongs. Even if you use a grabber chain, you have to somehow get it wrapped around the log, and that's especially difficult if they've been sitting a while and have settled into the ground. These useful tools bite into the wood and make it easy to drag with a tractor, truck, or ATV.

Durability is the main thing to look for in these products. You want a tool that won't bend or break with heavy use. We ranked the Earth Worth and Timber Tuff options high in our list because they are tough and feel nice and solid in your hand. We also liked the spring-loaded arms of the Timber Tuff TMW-22SSS and for some, the added functionality is worth the extra cash.
