Where are you in CT? LogRite is in Vernon. I'd call to see if they do any direct sales, if I was near Vernon.

They have three dealers in CT, too: https://logrite.com/store/connecticut

I have a Stihl cant hook, and bought the LogRite log stand. It was mentioned on here that LogRite makes the Stihl products.

Would you recommend it? Any other ones I can consider?
Interesting that this unit is much less ambitious than many as far as the height of lift. You only need to get it clear of the ground. Might be more practical for larger logs. I've never used the log-jack foot that came with mine. Being able to roll the log is enough to allow finishing the cut.

I used the foot on my woodchuck dual like three or four times. I've used it as a Peavy way more than a timberjack

Same here. While I don't have a Woodchuck, I use my timberjack almost exclusively as a cant hook/peavey to turn logs rather than elevate them.

If its too big I just let the Wife turn them with Tractor. You can bite off more than you can do with Timber Jack. Depending on the log size and such.

For a cant to work well, it must be very sharp on the hook and the end that bites into the log.
