Rated 3 out of 5 by from Because handle is round it's hard to "index" Let me start by saying I really like this tool. It is light, strong and a great tool to save your back. The handle is a good length for my 6 foot frame and the foam handle feels good in the hand (although I am worried about the durability of this over time - tossing it on the ground or in the bed of the truck). My only complaint is that because the handle is round, it requires that you actually look at the tip to make sure that it is "indexed" properly before swinging to ensure a solid strike. I would say that I probably miss about 25% of the time and it doesn't actually stick into the wood, but glances off. I am sure that I will get better the more I use the Hookaroon, but if the handle were contoured so that you could feel the proper orientation, miss-hits could be eliminated. I am actually thinking about removing the foam and adding a new grip that has a ridge to help with "indexing".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product I've been using my new pickaroon for a couple of days and already love this tool. It's great for pulling logs out of a pile or picking up log pieces that fall off the splitter. Also great for picking up small to medium logs without bending over. I wish I had discovered this tool years ago. I have some concerns about the tip and how long it will last but only time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely must have this tool! This hookaroon is an absolute back saver! Great for picking up firewood without having to bend over. The construction is outstanding and it really feels sturdy and well made. I would highly recommend this hookaroon over many others I have tried. Without a doubt the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy smoke! Oh my goodness, where has this been my whole life? I'm a 49 year old fat man with a bad back and I would refuse to cut haul wood or split wood unless I had help so I didn't have to bend over and pick up the wood. Yesterday, I split over 2 ricks of wood, by myself, and my back didn't even hurt today. This thing is a total back saver! I wish I had known what a hookaroon was before, and I'll never be without one ever again.I love how light it is. I was concerned about the new design. The actual "hook" used to be a solid piece of round stock sharpened to a point. The new one is pointed, flat stock welded to round stock. I am impressed about how strong it is. I didn't baby it. I beat, and pried, and twisted this thing and when I finished, everything was as straight and tight as it was when I started. You even get a spare roll pin. When do you ever get a spare anything these days? I got the Stihl because there is a limited lifetime warranty and I don't foresee ever having to use it but it's nice to know it's there if I need it.The one thing I'd change is I'd make the handle oblong instead of round so you can index it correctly without looking.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed I have always equated Stihl with quality, but not with this product. I used it for a few months and it cracked at the head. I took it to a shop that could weld aluminum and they fixed it. It worked well for several more months and now it's broken again. It broke completely off below the head. I will buy another hookaroon but it will NOT be this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Back Saver I bought this because it looked lighter than the wood pickaroon that I just purchased; I have two sons so they can inherit the one I don't use. I was right! This one is much lighter, feels stronger and enables me to use it much longer than the other one. Additionally, it is shorter too which makes it easier to wield. It sometimes takes a bit of effort to dislodge it but that can be controlled by how hard I set it in the wood to begin with; the smaller the wood the less effort needed. Great tool that I am still happy I purchased every time I use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and strong It does way more than what I bought it for. Most useful tool I have ever had for clearing my land. Wish I had it when I used to sell firewood. Now i have one on the tractor and one in the truck. What a life (and back) saver. I looked at one for over 3 years before I purchased because I thought it was too expensive. It only took minutes of use to tell that twice the price would be cheap. So sorry I did not get it 30 years ago.
