How many Logrite Tools do you have??
« on: August 10, 2013, 09:34:17 PM »
Everybody "fess" up.  How many Logrite Tools do you have?

I have 4.  Two 48" and one 60" cant hooks, and the latest addition is the 30" Hookaroon.

The subject came up in another thread and it was on my mind today as I was using my very latest Logrite tool.  I wanted it to reach stubborn flitches that are sometimes on the loading arms and out of reach for the two plane log clamp.
 

 
And it worked perfectly for that job.
 

  
Waiting for the next time.  It is painted a special Green in keeping with the theme of the 10th Anniversary Pig Roast.

Actually, the forest green in not the pig roast theme, but more of the Forestry Forum theme. I have a green 48" cant hook here in the office that I don't use that is signed by a whole bunch of members. If I count that, I have 3 cant hooks, 2 hookaroons, i mark 7 arch, 1 international log scale and also a pruning saw, one bottle opener, and once small scale cant hook. I purchased all of my tools other than the bottle opener, "toy hook" and the signed canthook which was a gift from the members. :)   All of my other tools are blue other than one orange canthook that is actually Tammy's :)

2 cant hooks one with the log lift on it and one hookaroon.
I like MM's hookaroon better than mine because of the smaller diameter handle

That's the same reason I bought 2 stihl bg55's. Then later bought a third one, don't really know why. Now I have one and my dad and friend each has one. Wait a minute, I bought 4 leaf blowers. Wow, I am weird.

Anyhow, I have a blue cant hook. What are those cant hooks called that has a rest on it so you can lift the log off the ground to cut firewood? Got one of them too.

So far two 60" cant hooks, unfortunately never used them with the mill yet but are mighty handy cleaning up trees cut down around the yard to help with loader work on the big logs.

I have 2 cant hooks -- 30" and 60", plus a 60" peavey with a slightly bent handle.

The 30" cant hook is the workhorse. It's a two-tone -- part blue and part silver (aluminum). Most of the time I use it to roll logs along the log deck. It's also great for coaxing a timber that doesn't quite want to turn all the way on the deck.

The 60" cant hook doesn't get as much use but it is an absolute life back saver in the log yard. No need to fire up the loader just to shift a log off the pile.

The peavey is semi-retired but I have plans for making a useful mill too out of it. If that works out I'll give the design to Logrite to see if they can market it.

48 and 60" peavies
78" cant hook
timber carrier
24 and 30" Pickaroons
1/4" scale stick
Fetching arch with 2 man handle and tow tongue
That makes 8.
Plus Porta-winch, Blue creeper, and a replacement hook for megahook which I use to roll logs.

Everything gets used regularly and it's a pleasure to pick up any of these tools.

One 48" cant hook, but one day I will add either a hookaroon or a pickaroon!

Which ever one I get, will primarily be used to pull boards back off the loading arms for edging!

One 48" cant hook and I love it. Definitely no buyers regret there.

Also one bottle opener ;)
