I don't use one...cut about 30 cord the past 3 years without one.
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.
I am late jumping in. I used the Northern tool combo cant hook/log lift, 60" long, with steel and fiberglass handle to both roll and lift logs for many years. It is a very good cant hook; the handle is almost indestructible. (I broke a 3" wooden handle on a previous one by driving over it with a truck. That would not hurt the Northern handle a bit). However, I did bend the log lift foot lifting very heavy logs. So, I bought the Woodchuck Tools log lifter. It is lighter but can lift heavier logs, due to its shorter stand height, giving it more leverage. It also keeps the handle off the ground, and reduces the risk of crushing your hand under it when the log rolls onto the lift stand. So I now use the Woodchuck for bucking logs off the ground and the Northern for rolling them. I might remove the log lift stand from the Northern so I can get a larger arc of rotation when rolling. With the stand, it is limited to about 120 degrees. Without, it is close to 200 degrees.
