Columbus McKinnon Cant Hook - 4ft., Model# 06140
Excellent choice - better than expected
Heavy duty - just right for mid to large size logs. Wood handle is very sturdy. Would definitely recommend if you need to roll logs for cutting. I used my neighbors a few times and it just don't have the quality this one has.

McKinnon Cant Hook
Finally a cant hook that is a perfect fit for my 45 year old red pine. Most I have purchased are for very large logs
My red pine is only 13 inches dia. This fits and flips the cants on the saw bed perfect every time. excellent quality and built strong. I do recommend this product
if your logs are not to large. I have put all the other cant hooks in the storage shed this one is hanging in the saw mill shed.
Sorry no video or pictures at this time.

USA made sturdy Cant Hook that is easy to use and saves on chain shapening. If doesn't work on the larger logs I just use the skidder to roll them over.

This peavy has come in very handy moving the large logs i typically handle and even helps me when I get my chainsaw pinched. I recommend this tool for anyone who handles any kind of wood. I know it has saved me a lot of strain and headaches.

Great for all loggers
This product is great for Rolling Logs when cutting them into. I think every logger needs one if this. It is very lightweight and easy to use

Good For Short Logs and Cants
This works great but a Peavey Pole is really needed for longer and larger logs.

Good, but too small to serve as a full-size peavey
I love that it's made in the USA. It's well made, of good materials, and the wood handle is stout and solid.
the hook was a bit dull [maybe due to OSHA safety "standards"(?) ]. The point is good steel, but I was able to sharpen it with a file in just a few minutes
People who complain about its size are correct, if (like me) they are trying to use it to move round logs over 20 inches in girth. However, its name says it all: it's a cant hook, not a peavey. Once the top and side slabs are removed, I seldom have a squared cant that I can't handle with this hook.
I've found that the Northern Tool Log Jack, with the T-bar removed, has a larger "mouth" capacity, and can handle the bigger logs (up to 25 or 26 inches) that this tool just can't get its mouth around. Any bigger than that, I remove all the bark and sometimes use the chainsaw to rip off a slab a few inches long just to give the Log Jack a purchase on the log to roll it.
When used to move or turn cants or smaller logs, this tool is just the ticket.

this cant hook is a must for those doing large tree jobs. the 4 ft. handle makes it easer to move large trees to finish cuts, or removing stuck ropes. use two or three and findout how ease it is to move huge stumps that were unmoveable before. i never go to a removeal without them. (3ft. and 4ft.) also good if (not me) your saw somehow gets stuck.

The Forest Service opened an area to firewood cutting. They cut and piled the logs 10' high. This cant hook allowed us to separate huge logs from the pile, saving pinched saws, damaged chain saw bars and chains. One person can move logs weighing over 800 lbs into position that the logs can be cut to length easily. Should have had one years ago!

I got this log roller a few years ago for moving big trees and it has worked very well. I would recommend this product to anyone. I bought a similar one from another store that wasn't made in USA and it was a piece of junk. Wouldn't hook the logs and always slipped off. Save time and money and buy this one first!
