    Works great for gathering blocks of wood.
    I purchased the Hookaroon because I was curious how well it would make my job easier. I use it around my Logsplitter to pull blocks of wood to me while I'm splitting wood. I've had mine for at least five years and I wouldn't be without it when I split wood. GREAT tool for those that like to make splitting wood easy!

    Addicted to This Tool
    I picked this up after seeing guys talk about how useful they could be. I immediately saw the build quality and knew this tool simply wouldn’t fail. I anticipated I’d get a good bit of use with it, but what I couldn’t have predicted is just how indispensable this tool has become. All I can say is if you wonder if you’d get enough use out of it to justify the expense, , ,go ahead and buy it and you will not be disappointed. I use this to load/unload split fire wood, , carry rounds before ... read more splitting, , to help on the log splitter, , and to even move larger pieces around the work site. Don’t know how I got along without it.

    Great Tool a must have if you log or mill timber :)
    This tool is tough,reliable and worth its weight in gold to anyone that works with or around timber. I have two of the 48" model, a log carrier and a smaller version as a cant hook, note: if you are milling timber the cant hook doesn't dig into the good timber like the peavey spike does and will save you from loosing good timber.

    Excellent tool and very well made
    My wife and I use this Peavey to muscle tress weighing well over 400Kg. It takes a bit of practice to use it efficiently and also to recognize that some trees just will not co-operate. Trees with really thick bark like Ponderosa Pines and Cedars can be difficult, but Birches and other thin skinned trees work perfectly. I wish the handle was about a foot longer though...

    Indispensable tool
    Before I begin, I will say this. Yes, there are cheaper peavies out there, but they are just that, cheap. This peavey offered by steel is made here in the USA. That matters more and more to me these days. Quality is first and foremost in deciding what I should spend my money on. Stihl is synonymous with quality, and their products have never let me down. The Stihl peavey's quality and strength will be known as soon as you see it in person and hold it in your hands. It makes moving heavy timber ... read more and lumber a breeze. The handle has to be 2 inches in diameter with a nice foam grip that is around 18" long to give you plenty of area to get the best grip. The hook is mounted to a reinforced collar that is welded onto the tool's main shaft, and it is secured with a grade 8 bolt and lock nut. The point is blunt, but I am sure that is for shipping safety and store liability. It is nothing a file or grinder won't cure in a few minutes if you need or want really sharp. I use this tool a lot in conjunction with my MS660 magnum for milling with my chainsaw mill. I don't know how or why I waited so long to get this. It sure simplified moving rather large logs into position to mill 33"x108"x2" slabs of spalted red maple. I highly recommend this tool if you're having to move heavy rounds, logs, or cants if need be. It will save your back, your energy, and make your day easier along with helping you to get more done.

    Works well for getting logs off the ground.
    I purchased the log stand with a 60" STIHL cant hook and find it to be very useful in raising logs off the ground far enough to keep your chain from hitting the dirt. An added benefit is that the stand is easily removed for using the cant hook alone. Easy to use and very durable.

    Log stand or Log Jack
    This is a great tool for lifting fallen trees. it elevates the fallen tree so your chain saw does not touch the ground when cutting a fallen tree.

    A MUST for all loggers
    I have a STIHL Cant hook along with this log stand and what a miracle tool it is! I have used it countless times in the forest and I have lifted some VERY heavy felled trees with it! With the tree lifted, cutting the trunk/branches are a breeze! As I mentioned, this is a MUST own for all loggers and/or farmers that rely on firewood!

    A must have tool
    I bought a 42 inch cant hook to replace an old wooden handled cant that sent me flying when the wood handle shattered. The Stihl cant is very strong, light weight, easy to maneuver even large logs with it. I add the firewood stand when needed to keep logs off the ground when bucking, as a combo they work great. This is a tool that any wood cutter needs in my opinion.

    Essential if you work with fallen trees or large logs.
    If you are doing anything related to cutting trees and large logs its pretty much as important as a chain saw. Move/roll/position and even raise above the floor single handed to avoid cutting into the dirt. I even have a version with a 6" extension to raise logs off the ground when working on hard surfaces like concrete or asphalt.

    It did what I asked of it
    I fairly recently moved to a house with a wood burning fireplace and wanted to get into supplying myself with firewood. I found a good source and was lead to a large tree (to me (about 35" dia)) that fell about 2 years ago. I started out with an older Poulan that I had... well that's another story. Anyway, I'm not a professional and the large diameter was a bit daunting to cut rounds out of. Searched the internet and found out about Peavey's and Cants and decided that that is what I needed. I ... read more wasn't looking to spend a lot of money but just couldn't bring myself to buy the ones I found in a local farm store (generally rated for 12" Dia). I found two highly recommended cants - one from Logrite and Stihl. They seemed to be the same thing. Since I was heading to the local Stihl Dealer for some equipment anyway and I figured it was easier for any warranty issues and repairs, I bought one. IT PERFORMED AWESOME! I'm very happy with this product. Good confidence builder. I was even pulling out some 10" dia X 6' long logs that were half sunk in the ground fairly easily. I'm am now thinking about the lifter attachment.
