I had the chance to use a pickaroon(hookaroon) today on the firewood processor and I must admit I have been missing out on a very useful tool. A neighbor dropped it off and the only issue with it is it has a short handle on it. I am ready to order one with a longer handle, but I am not sure what length to get and whether or not to get the old school wooden handle or the newer aluminum one. I am reaching into the splitter bay with it and also using it to reach across the top of the firewood truck to move 16" split chunks around the body which is almost seven feet wide. Mind you I don't need a seven foot handle, but definately could use longer than 18". Bailey's has a 30" and a 36", the 30" is aluminum and the 36" is a real Peavey brand with the old school wooden handle. Help.
