Rated 5 out of 5 by John929 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JPau17 Essential Wood Tool Had this peavey now for 4 years and don't know how I worked without it before. I've used it on at least five separate big jobs that wouldn't haven been possible without it. I've manhandled Oak rounds I estimate were at least 300+ lbs with easy. Takes some time getting used to how best turn and leverage but after a short learning curve you'll never split without bringing it along. It's indestructible btw. Great tool! January 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dieselman8v92 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bongo 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...
