Stihl?
« on: December 18, 2007, 10:23:48 PM »
Are the orange cant hooks I see at the Co-op with a "Stihl" label Logrite tools?  I just want to make sure. :)

I have been trying to get information on Logrite tools from Stihl Canada but our rep has not heard anything about it. Sure would be nice to have them.

An Announcement by Forestry Forum member Tamiam (Tammy) and wife of Neslrite (Kevin), owner of Logrite tools, unveiled a new business association for them and attributed it directly to the exposure  Logrite Tools has experienced on the Forestry Forum.

Stihl, the chainsaw manufacturer, asked for a copy of Logrite's tools to be manufactured with the Stihl logo on the handle and painted with the company's orange color.  Tamiam reported that Stihl had been looking for new products for their dealers and catalog and the Forestry Forum had jumped up in first place in their Internet search.  Research unveiled the positive comments the member base had made on the Aluminum, guaranteed-for-life tools and directed Stihl toward the inclusion of the cant hooks in their 2006 catalogs.

Way to go Kevin and Tammy.  We're proud of you.

We have sent samples to Stihl Canada and hope they will begin to carry the OEM tools also.

I have been in 3 different Stihl dealerships within 30 miles of my house, none of them have the Logrite tools, didn't know what I was talking about. All are old dealerships, have a set line of saws they carry for the market they cater too, production cutting. You can buy all the big saws and parts you want, they have a few small saws, guess the company requires it, ask a question about a small saw and they are dumbfounded.

WH,
If your dealer has a STIHL catalog you can point out the tools to him.

He should then be able to order from his distributor if he wishes.

On Monday I will be sending the first shipment to Stihl Canada for distribution in the Canadian Stihl dealerships.  They will be receiving 50 PV048s and Log Stands to go with them.

We make them in Cardinal Safety orange for Stihl.  and they were shipped to London, ON. the way Stihl in US works is everything goes to corporate in Virginia Beach and then shipped to the 8 or so distributors who then ship to the dealers.  I believe Stihl Limited in Canada is probably set up the same way.  Just use their catalog and request the tool.

As for all the oranges we make:
Cardinal Safety for Stihl
RAL#2001 for WoodMizer
Sullivan Orange for Norwood
TimberKing has yet a different orange

It is easy to tell the oranges apart as none of them are the same.  Stihl's orange and Norwood's are the closest.

We have a lot of Stihl  shops around here, will keep an eye out this summer. Most of the time I'm in a hurry for parts, but I do glance around on occasion.  I gave one away as a door prize at one of our annual meetings (marketing board) and was asked if I was a rep or dealer. Had to say no.  ;) I've got two more here at the house, one came in handy moving a 26" spruce in a pasture gate, saved some walking.
Move'n on.

do you get them from Bailey's or Wesspur?  I know both of those dealers do a lot of tools to Canada.

I don't know about Wesdors but believe Baileys will not ship into Canada. Tammy, Stihl Canada head office and warehouse is in London, they have satellite warehouses in Edmonton and Langley (near Vancouver). I am hoping my former employer will stock them, I did sell a few peavys and cant hooks, so I can see one.
