Forestry Tools

Essential tools to assist you on the job

Logs don’t move themselves. It takes strength, agility, intelligence and well-crafted tools. STIHL forestry tools are made with the professional logger in mind and specially designed to lift, rotate and transport those very large chunks of tree. Whether you’re at the mill, on the lot, or deep in the woods, our forestry tools give you the leverage you need to help make the work easier.

Our forestry tools include essentials like cant hooks, peaveys, log carriers, hookaroons and a log stand.

    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.

    Worth every penny
    Recently purchased the 60" cant hook. Had a 48" wooden handle. No comparison at all. Only used one day so far. Cut firewood commercially. I buy loads of logs. I have a tractor, but actually can move the logs faster with my new hook. I roll them off the pile and position them in a row to cut in 16" lengths. It went so smoothly. Wouldn't head to my log pile now without my hook! Awesome piece of equipment!,

    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!

    Light and strong
    It does way more than what I bought it for. Most useful tool I have ever had for clearing my land. Wish I had it when I used to sell firewood. Now i have one on the tractor and one in the truck. What a life (and back) saver. I looked at one for over 3 years before I purchased because I thought it was too expensive. It only took minutes of use to tell that twice the price would be cheap. So sorry I did not get it 30 years ago.

    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.

    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.

    a must for cutting firewood
    This stand boosts productivity and saves chains when bucking up wood. There's nothing worse than nicking your chain on a rock or dirt and not having a spare when working. This unit will pay for itself even if your a home owner do-it-yourselfer.

    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.

    I Bet You Won't Break This One !
    My old Peavey had a wooden handle that was dry rotten. I remember hearing it crackle during it's last few uses. Old or new, would you want to take the chance of one of these snapping off while jacking over a log that weighs multiple-times your own weight? That is a formula for serious injury. This Stihl (steel) 60" Peavey will last a lifetime & still won't break even if you use a "cheater" pipe as an extension! I do recommend the 60" Peavey, although it is available in 42" & 48" models as ... read more well. This tool is invaluable for turning logs to complete limbing, bucking, decking, or dogging them off to wire rope for skidding. They assist in keeping your Chain Bar out of the dirt. If you are cutting logs into firewood lengths, I recommend purchasing the optional Log Stand which bolts on to the head of your Peavey.
