Unlike some of the other reviewers I had no problems with the brace arms. They stayed attached the whole time I used the stand, even when it wobbled (more on that below).
Unfortunately I had some other problems that I consider to be pretty big show stoppers. So I'm gunna start with the cons.
1. The log diameter that actually fits is less than 10", if you're sawing large limbs or whole trees this is kind of limiting.
2. Anything less than say 6" doesn't really sit securely without a lot of fussing. When you're hefting around 8 foot+ logs fussing to get them seated in the stand is really a pain. The specs say it holds 13' logs, I'm chuckling in my chair as I type that. Maybe it does but good luck with that.
3. On snow or wet ground the stand becomes a bobsled with a log attached. Seriously. I set a log in it, pushed down on the log to get the teeth to grab and before I knew what was going on the thing starts sliding away. Fortunately I wasn't on a very steep slope and it stopped after a foot or so. Honestly it made me start laughing out loud but it also made me realize that there is no way to anchor the stand without additional hardware. Grab a couple tent stakes or something for this thing.
3. On anything less than flat ground the stand wobbles. If you're sawing logs outside (and you should be) the ground isn't always perfectly flat, which means you may have to set up the stand away from the log site and haul the logs to the stand. Now if I was a lumber jack in the wild hills of Montana I could understand this but I'd also be using a much larger stand or a mill and a truck. But I'm a homeowner on my lawn. As it is right now the stand bows and flexes under the weight of an 8 foot, 6-7" diameter, maple log. When I'm running a chainsaw the last thing I need is the log I'm cutting to lurch towards me because the stand is flimsy. The stand is supposed to hold the log still.
4. It folds up but there is nothing to lock it in the folded position, so carrying it around is awkward since it constantly wants to unfold. Even though it's only supposed to be set-up one way it swings open on both sides. It's a little weird and a lot frustrating. I'm not telling you how to live your life but getting frustrated before you pick up a chainsaw just doesn't seem like a good idea to me. The folding arms are thin and when you have gloves on (which you should) they can be difficult to unwedge from the bottom where they like to get stuck, more frustration before you pick up a chainsaw.
Now here's the thing, it's not all bad. Which is why I'm giving it 3 stars.
As I said, on flat ground it works a treat. I tried it out in my shop (with some earplugs) and it stands firm on concrete. The log I loaded up was about 4 feet long and had about an 8" diameter, it held that sucker rock solid. You just slide the log in and push down on it so that the folding teeth sink in and the log isn't going anywhere.
In that setting I was really happy with the stand. If you look up their video on youtube "quick fire, worlds fastest loading saw horse", you'll see that they set it up on the street. And it holds those 7" diameter(I'm guessing) logs nice and firm.
So in ideal conditions its a great stand. Again, I don't have any issues with the folding arms coming loose.
Once you set it up a few times it gets really easy to set up and break down, that's a big plus since that's the selling point on this piece of equipment.
Overall it's tough for me to give this a recommendation. I think Forest Master has a good idea but it needs some improvements and revisions. As it stands it's just not a safe log stand unless you are on flat, dry ground with an ideal diameter log going into it.
It's not as portable as it could be with a few minor additions and based on other reviews it could probably use some additional latches for the folding arms.
I was happy to review this stand and when I use it in my shop or on the concrete patio I actually like it. But as it is I just can't recommend it as I feel it's not safe for your average homeowner to work with, especially not while running a dangerous power tool like a chainsaw. Way to many potential issues and injuries.
I'm giving it 3 stars, if you intend to cart your logs to a patio or driveway to cut them with the stand then this might be a great stand for a homeowner who is just limbing 6-8" diameters, but less than 6" inches and you'll be wrestling with it. If you have a large lot and are working on medium sized trees or limbs larger than 9" I think you'll be let down.
I'd hold out for version 2.
