Cant Hook

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leverage power I have had a 60" can't hook for about ten years. Though I don't use it every time I cut it is still a very important piece of equipment. With this tool I can roll, pivot and relocate logs of great weight with minimal effort. I also purchased the log stand attachment at the same time.The main body of the cant hook is tubular aluminum with a dense foam grip that extends down the shaft about 15". Both the large and small hooks are made of steel. The cant is threaded into a nut that has been welded into the end of the shaft. The larger log hook is bolted to a bracket that has been welded to the shaft. So either hook could be replaced if the need would arise.I have firmly grabbed logs over 30" in diameter and repositioned them so that I could cut for firewood. I have used the cant hook to roll 20' logs that I cut partially from the top so that I might finish the cut without hitting the ground. This is where the log stand comes into play. With it bolted on I will grab a log towards the middle and roll it onto the stand in order to cut off rounds without damaging the chain.Another quality product marketed by Stihl. January 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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. September 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Heavy Duty - Does what it's built for Sandy dropped a huge oak on my lot. Moving and positioning 25 to 30" diameter logs for cutting and clearing seemed impossible without this. Using this tool and some tuck ramps as pivot points, it became easy. Just bought the log jack extension to raise remaining pieces for cutting. August 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very useful, versatile must have tool in the woods. I purchased one of each size Cant Hooks from my STIHL Dealer as I find them to be very useful tools to use in moving large logs for blocking. I've had mine since STIHL brought them out and they are extremely durable,well made,valuable tools to have if you do a lot of firewood cutting. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! February 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. November 5, 2012
