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!

    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.

    Jack 'er Up... Cut 'er Off !
    This easy-to-install & easy-to-remove option for your Peavey or Cant Hook is an economical tool-enhancer. You can do a lot more with your Peavey or Cant Hook using one of these! There are 4-hex head fasteners (with tool provided & attached to the Log Stand). The Log Stand will assist you in limbing, bucking, decking, dogging-off for skidding, or cutting firewood into lengths. I suggest sliding slightly-larger-diameter "cheater" pipes over the ends of the Stand, on each side, to assist when ... read more using on uneven or infirm ground. (Perpendicular extensions on the Log Stand may work better for you in situations where your Chainsaw Bar may come in close contact with the extensions! These can be fabricated with pipe w/ tees in the center that slip over the ends.)

    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.

    A must have!!
    This tool is worth its weight in gold and a must have!! The log stand should be included though... not only is it great for rolling and holding logs off the ground as you cut them up but it also saved me from a major problem while trying to fall a massive dead tree... after I made all the cuts in the trunk the tree started to fall then the top got caught in surrounding canopy causing the trunk to slip off the stump and free stand the entire tree on the ground!! After a few min of trying figure ... read more out how to solve my little problem I realized my peavey was there, so I put it on the trunk and was able to spin the tree (with ease) allowing it to break lose from the snag in the canopy.. without the peavey i would have been screwed

    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.

    Top quality Peavey
    I have the 48" peavey, which I have found to be just the right length for my needs. Short enough to carry conveniently or stash on my tractor or UTV, long enough to provide the leverage needed in most of my situations. These Peaveys are made for Stihl by Logrite. They have perfected the design to come up with a peavey that grabs well and grabs reliably and will stand up to rough use. I'm normally a big fam of wood-handled tools, but I made an exception in this case. I've probably

    This is a great product
    I've been using my new pickaroon for a couple of days and already love this tool. It's great for pulling logs out of a pile or picking up log pieces that fall off the splitter. Also great for picking up small to medium logs without bending over. I wish I had discovered this tool years ago. I have some concerns about the tip and how long it will last but only time will tell.

    Simple, but useful tool
    This Hookaroon (aka Pickaroon) is nothing new as far as design and function and It isn't the cheapest hookaroon out there, but it is very well built and built to last. The "Stihl orange makes it easy to find. I use it to pick up and move cut wood and to roll and drag logs around. Besides my chain saw and axe, I believe it is an essential tool in the forest.

    Well worth the price.
    This hookaroon will pay for itself in unused Tylenol for my back. Cut 16 inch heavy ash, picked up even the large pieces with ease. Great tool, great quality, essential in the woods. Should have bought one 20 years ago.
