This week’s Made in America 2021 exhibitor feature is The LogOX. This woman and veteran-owned company has invented many time and back- saving forestry tools that are American Made.
For us, harvesting firewood in preparation for another harsh Vermont winter ahead is an annual family tradition, dating back to our lumberjack ancestors in 17th century New England. For 35 years, we’ve faithfully managed our 12-acre woodlot, thinning out weak, crowded, and dead trees to make way for healthy new growth. In the process, we’ve helped keep our family safe and warm. We’ve always enjoyed this yearly chore, which gives us a welcome chance to unplug, come together, and enjoy working in the great outdoors.
But if necessity is the mother of invention, stinging back pain is certainly its father. The pain that comes from continually bending over to pick up and move logs can become excruciating, after just a few hours, not to mention the inherent danger of swinging a sharp pulp hook. So after five years of R&D (obsessive tinkering) in the garage with numerous designs, we created and patented the innovative “hook and carry” LogOX Hauler, to save our backs, easily move stove length logs, and replace the antiquated pulp hook. Not only does the ergonomically designed LogOX Hauler eliminate the need for constant bending, but as quickly as you reach a log, you can engage, lift and walk away with it, saving you valuable time and energy.
After lugging a separate pulp hook, timberjack, and cant hook into the woods year after year, it only made sense to consolidate these three tools, into the patented LogOX 3-in-1 Forestry MultiTool. We use quick release clevis pins, instead of the industry’s typical hex screws, to quickly and easily integrate a full 38” cant hook extension and timberjack into the design.
