We stock all sorts of old-fashioned log handling tools, like peavies, cant hooks, pickeroons and log jacks (aka timberjacks). While these tools aren't commonly used on big-time, professional logging sites, they are used daily all across the country in smaller operations. Farmers, ranchers, firewood splitters and those that operate log mills depend on these quality tools to make handling logs and other timber products as easy and efficient as possible.
Peavies vs. Cant Hooks--What's the Difference?
Physically, the only difference between peavies and cant hooks is that peavies have a pointed tip and cant hooks do not. Some say this difference is important, but we have noticed that with most of our customers, they use either one for pretty much the same job. Both will bite into a log and allow you to roll it, but the peavey has the pointed end that will penetrate into the ground (to store the tool, for example).
What About a Log Jack?
A log jack (aka timberjack) is used to get a log up off the ground for cutting purposes. A chainsaw operator certainly doesn't want to bury or even bang their chainsaw off the ground, and that's exactly what a good log jack helps you prevent. We offer them here in both traditional wood and aluminum handle versions.
