Hand Bucking

The aim is the same for all classes of hand bucking, with entrants cutting through the log as fast as possible using a crosscut saw. There are single hand bucking, double bucking and the Jill and Jill competitions, plus we’ve added a special Peg & Raker demonstration for 2014 to showcase the evolution of hand bucking. Also, crucial to the athletes, is a coach/oiler/wedge handler who helps the speed by squirting lubricant on to the saw and pressing a wedge into the top of the cut.
