Wedges

Great way to help make tree cutting a breeze

A wedge is almost as essential to tree felling and bucking as a chainsaw. When properly placed, wedges help keep the tree from pinching your chainsaw bar, and helps the tree to fall in the direction of the notch cut. Wedges also help to protect you and your equipment. With proper placement, wedges help keep the tree from falling backward or pinching your chainsaw bar. Like all STIHL products, these wedges can take a beating. STIHL wedges are made of high-impact polymer for long-lasting use.

    Always have a couple with you
    Lightweight and tough but easy on your chain. If you are cutting wood, you need to have a few these with you. For the windblown trees I deal with, I am constantly needing to use wedges, and more than one at a time. When you have to stick your saw back into the tree, no need to worry about hitting your wedge with your chain, these wedges wont damage your chain. The best part about these wedges, they are really inexpensive.

    Durable and light
    I have used other brand's wedges and they broke in half only the second time I used it. The Stihl wedges are stronger and more reliable than others. I use the wedges for felling and bucking. Wedges are the safest way to fell a tree. I own three Stihl wedges, I smash them into the tree to prevent bar pinch and to control the tree while felling. I have hit the wedges with my saw and no damage occurred to the chain. Very useful tool.

    Primo wedges
    I've had competitors wedges and nothing compares to the stihls. The plastic is solid and all the different sizes are useful for all sorts of situations. The small one is my goto wedge as it fits nice in my back pocket.

    Awesome!!
    Got this wedge the other day for just the heck of it. Glad I did, one of the best purchases I have ever made. I don't know what the heck the guy that gave this a 1 star was doing but I have beaten the heck out of it and it is not deformed!! Splits wood logs that are even fresh cut and on the ground not a hard surface. Wedge goes right in and splits no problem. I can split 24 inch diameter logs with ease using a little hand sledge.This thing is great would recommend all day long to anyone!!!!!

    A must have for splitting hardwood
    Better than other wedges, does not bounce out, and splits wood with ease. 2in to 3in or less makes a wide gap in the wood. Needs demonstration models at dealerships and very hard to find in south central PA.

    A Must Have for Chainsaw Work!
    Any serious chainsaw user will know what I mean when I say that a wedge pouch is an absolute must have when working in the woods! This pouch has made it so easy and convenient for me to keep wedges and other tools handy for when I need them. Sure, you can put wedges and tools in your pockets, I myself did that for awhile. All I have to say about that is, it got old pretty quick. After using this just once, it has become an indispensable part of my tool belt. The pouch is deep enough to ... read more securely hold a 12" wedge, and leave about 2.5-3" sticking out the top. It held the two 12" wedges I have, along with a 10" wedge with no problem. The gussets on it have been optimized for holding tools as well. One side holds a bar wrench, and has a Velcro flap to hold it in place. The other side is used for a file. It has been stitched so that there is a slot just big enough to slip a file down into and not have it flop around. A file, with a handle, sits in there very nicely. The bottom of both gussets are open, so the tools can reach down to the bottom of the pouch. The smaller pouch in the front has a Velcro flap, and is big enough to hold any other necessary tool you may need. I was able to put two 5.5" wedges in it, along with a spark plug (I keep mine in an old prescription medication bottle for protection), a small screwdriver for carburetor adjustment and one of those black Torx wrenches that STIHL offers. I probably could have put another thing or two in there. I took out the wedges, and tried out two 18" loops of chain in there, along with the other things, with no problem at all. The fabric used to make this pouch looks and feels like Cordura, so it should be fairly durable. I don't own a logger's tape...yet, but I'm sure the D-ring works fine for that. The one drawback about this wedge pouch is the belt loop. You cannot use anything wider than a 2" belt to hold this pouch. Anything wider, and it will NOT fit. I would suggest that the belt loop be made to accommodate up to a 3" wide belt, in my opinion. That might just be what makes or breaks a sale. So there you have it! The first in-depth review of STIHL's wedge pouch. I guess what I am trying to say is, this is one handy, versatile accessory to have on your tool belt...if it fits on your belt that is.

    Keeps Your Wedges "Holstered" for a "Quick Draw" !
    "sawdust" made excellent comments about suggested uses for the Wedge Tool Pouch. I used to hand-carry my wedges around & throw them near the base of the tree I was felling. Sometimes the wedges would get covered with chips or get knocked into the duff while I was jockeying around my position while sawing. Then I'd go on & forget about them & have to come back for an aggravating search. The real benefit, though, is enhanced felling SAFETY ! When you are felling a difficult tree (rotten, ... read more lean, snag, odd branching, close structures) it is imperative to have quick access to your wedges when the situation demands. This Wedge Tool Pouch does just that. The response time of "quick-drawing" your wedges may make the difference between crushing a roof, crushing your saw, or crushing your co-workers' (or your own) skull! Plus, it keeps you from overstretching the rear pockets of your pants from repeated wedge insertion, resulting in your wallet falling out somewhere in the woods. I fully agree with modifying it so it will fit at least a 3" Loggers Tool Belt.
