I also, now , think It is a Should have tool !
Absolutely a must have,you'll never do without one especially working alone,get a cant hook at least 60in with the log stand attachement,unbelievable tool. Logrite makes one that will last a lifetime,60,or 78in cant with log stand attachement check it out.I've moved 46 in red oak rounds green by myself with no wear and tear on back.
I use this baby !
saves on chains and the back!
That's the one to have ,I've got the Logrite 60" identical wouldn't be without it.
I take my cant hook when I'm up against large trees. Just used it Monday to roll an Ash and finish the bucking cuts. The tree was about 36" dbh, trunk I needed to roll was about 26' long and I had to roll over the cut off of a large branch. Took a few grunts but was sure glad I remembered to bring the cant with me! As mentioned, this and the pickaroon are should have/nice to have tools.
I have this old one. I don't really use it that much, but occasionally on some stuff. It had a shorter round handle on it originally, but when the bottom rotted out I put a post hole digger handle on it. Tapered the end and poured fiberglass resin in to fill the voids.
My cant hook is a must have! I frequently have arborists drop off what their 18" capacity chippers won't take. Moving 24-40" logs and rounds gets old fast.
