Customer Questions & Answers

I see it has the dual bars under the log (and the chain over), but what holds the log suspended? Is this a "fight for balance" act??

The pictures don't really explain the operation
Asked by: John
there is a chain that holds the log down on the 'short end' - i.e. the end near the fulcrum you can then cut the long end shorter and shorter

cant really tell, but setup is not difficult. If you plan on running a chain saw you should be able to unfold this thing and put a log on it.

I see the obvious benefits of cross cutting firewood with this saw horse, but I am wondering if anyone has used a Granberg chainsaw mill with this saw horse. I guess my question is. Will this device hold up to the horizontal forces applied by a chainsaw mill while cutting rough sawn timber. I will be ripping logs at the maximum diameter and weight the saw horses are designed for. Hopefully someone has had some luck cutting timber with it, and doesn't mind sharing some pointers with me. Thank you.
Asked by: jskerb
I've never milled with a Granberg chainsaw mill so I can't answer your question definitively. But I have bucked logs with the Quick Fire. Based on that experience, 1) the additional weight of the mill will tend to change to balance point, an unnerving as well as dangerous event if the log suddenly tips! 2) When making a vertical cut you can only work up to around 6" of the chain that holds the log in the V-teeth. (That is somewhat true for both sides of the V-teeth.) The actual number is based on how willing you are to cut near the Quick Fire's legs. With maximum length logs, at the recommended balance point at 1/3 of the distance from the heavy end, you could cut on the short end to about 6' on the short end and to about 12' feet on the long end before bumping into the Quick Fire. These maximum lengths would need to be adjusted depending on how close your mill can come to the Quick Fire. Do you really want a 12' and a 6' length board? 3) The log is not firmly held at multiple locations as with typical milling, so it is vulnerable to some vertical movement. This is not a problem with bucking. But you need to consider, what would be the dangers for you and the saw if a log loses its balance point (which is a real possibility)? And what might be the result of a bouncing log on the quality of the cut and efficiency of cutting. 4) How do you cut your 2nd level of boards? Do you buck cut the first level? With a second chainsaw? 5) My guess is that the Quick Fire could manage the horizontal forces most of the time but not dependably all of the time. I certainly would recommend getting the right tool for milling instead.

Where is it made?

Asked by: Flight014
Made in China I recall, based on the assembly instructions and the metric sized fasteners

661 lb. Capacity Quick Fire Saw Horse, Log Holder for Chainsaws and Log Splitters is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.

I used the Quick Fire Log Holder to buck 7 freshly downed green pines and firs, 10" to 13" diam., 9' lenghts. It worked well, especially for solo bucking. And I'm 71 years old. I suggest you watch the online video to see how its done. When my son-in-laws were around they tended to pick up the logs together which seems to me to be more stressful on the back than the solo method. There's a fairly short learning curve to figure out how to set the log for good balance. (I chose 9' lengths primarily for ease of lifting. That length also allowed for easy measuring with eye or tape when determining the pivot point. Finally that length worked well for the length of wood that fits my wood burning stove.) You need to remember to alternately cut from both ends. I used a 2-to-1 cut method, starting with 2 cuts on the longer end and then moving to the short end for the single cut. I got so engrossed in cutting that I forgot to alternate ends a couple of times, which can cause unexpected tipping of the log. The product's materials are robust and sturdy. All of them! No "economizing." The locking nuts were a pleasant surprise, giving me a sense of security that they won't loosen during a job. One of the plastic end plugs slipped off, fortunately where I could easily find it. I'll have to glue it in next spring. Also one of the holes of a locking pin needs to be reset with a drift punch for easier pin entry. You should use the drift punch during assembly before tightening the nearby nuts. The assembly instructions were adequate.

Thus far, this product works as indicated however, the directions for putting it together took more time then it should, not well written. I have lots of tree logs to cut on my property, I am hoping it will stand the test.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice! I am very happy with this product. It really makes cutting logs very easy. Assembly: There was a tiny issue with the assembly - I think it was painted after drilling the holes and the thickness of the paint made it hard to get one of the bolts through. This was quickly remedied by inserting a suitably sized drill and removing the excess material. Assembly diagrams are rather small for those of us with older eyes. You will need a selection of socket sizes and hex ‘Allen key’ to assemble the product. Assembly is pretty easy and all the parts were present. Operation: Lift the end of the log into its cradle, drape the chain over the log and insert the ends of the chain into the chain holders below. Raise the log to just more than horizontal and the chain ends slide further into their holders. Release the log and it settles back into position firmly held by the chain. Cut the log with your chainsaw! Since you are now cutting logs up in the air, it is way less strain on the back but you do need to watch out for falling and rolling logs as they get cut off. Tip: You may find it useful to paint the middle link in the chain a different color so that it is easy to drape the chain over the log evenly. Storage: The sawhorse folds up and can easily be carried, even through the woods. There are two pins that hold the folding leg in place when in use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from can use this almost anywhere I heat my home with an outdoor wood furnace, and cut alot of wood. When I found this sawhorse and ordered it in Feb. the snow was still 3 ft deep, but I knew it would work for me when the time came to put it to use. I dought I will ever exceed its weight limit of 600+ lbs. I cut mostly oak, elm, maple, hickory, and some boxelder with real crooked branches..The saw horse works great for all. The assembly instructions were alittle confusing at the beginning..found it easier to assembly from the end of instruction to beginning. The little black plactic end caps are not very usefull, they don't stay in place, lost one already. Over all very satified with capabilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A "must have" if you cut your own firewood This is one of those products where you find yourself asking "Why didn't I get one of these sooner?". A very simple design which is a very effective tool for holding tree branches and trunks for cutting into logs. It even makes one person operation a walk in the park. Assembly is a little time consuming as the instructions are ambiguous and the diagrams showing each stage are a little on the small/feint side to be truly useful. The one tool that you will need to make sure you have is an 8mm allen wrench. I had all the other tools in my toolbox, but the standard allen wrench sets often don't go up to 8mm in size. In all honesty, I have bought $30 flatscreen mounts that come with their own allen wrench, so it would be good to see the manufacturer include 2-3 of the required allen wrenches in the assembly kit. Once assembled it is easy to move to and from the jobsite. To give a sense of how simple this is to use, the attached video shows my wife chopping up a 6' long 4" tree trunk. All you do is lean the branch against the saw horse teeth, loop the chain over the end of the branch and into the chain collector and then lift up the longer end of the branch. The chain drops into the chain collector and then automatically locks in as the branch is lowered back down, holding the branch in place for sawing. We chopped a whole pile of branches and trunks in about an hour with very little effort. Without the saw horse, I'd be trying to chop the logs in situ and end up with an aching back after about 20 mins from leaning over. With this saw horse there's no aching back as the logs are held at waist height making them comfortable to saw. We sawed up various sizes of log, with the largest being a 5' long 10" diameter log and the longest being about 16' long which it handled effortlessly. It also makes it easy to 'limb' branches and handles odd shaped branches easily too. Once finished, the saw horse simply folds into an easy to store format similar to how an ironing board folds up.
