spacer.gif (67 bytes) Unrated Skidding TongsSkidding Tongs
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 ring only.

NOTE: Skidding Tongs are not load rated and should not be used for overhead lifting.

Load Rated Lifting Tongsspacer.gif (67 bytes)Rated Timber Lifting Tongs 
Oshkosh Tools has introduced three sizes of Load-Rated Lifting Tongs. Lifting tongs are signified by yellow color and are capable of lifting up to 2500 and 5000 lbs. depending on the model - see chart below.

All units are tested per ASTM B 30.20 1999, each unit is tagged with rated load and serial number. Test data is supplied with each tong. Tags must remain on units at all times. Warranty is void if tag is removed or tampered with. Only lifting tongs are rated for lifting however you should never stand below a load because wood could fracture causing the load to fall.
