Gorillabac Drag/Lift System for Log Splitters
Gorillabac Drag/Lift System for Log Splitters

The remote-controlled, winch-powered Gorillabac Drag/Lift System for Log Splitters can pull a 30-inch-diameter, 24-inch-long log from 50 feet away to the splitter then lift it up onto the splitter beam. The device consists of a vertical steel pole with lift arm at the top (pole clamps to splitter's I-beam), a screw ring, a cable with hook, a sliding pulley block with hook, a pull chain on the lift arm, and a 12-volt electric winch. The operator screws the ring into the log, hooks the cable onto it, and hooks the sliding pulley block to the pull chain. With the remote, the log is winched toward the splitter then lifted high enough to clear the work area atop the splitter. The swing arm's positioning handle is used to swing, lower, and hold the log on the splitter beam, ready for the splitting operations. Two models are available-one for splitters with adjustable tongue-height trailer jacks and the other for splitters with fixed or flip-down height supports.
