Sawmill and Woodlot Magazine test of Fetching Arch
When I was growing up if you wanted to eat, or have hot water, or just wanted to stay warm, you put some wood on the fire.
We had no other source of fuel. From the time I was very young, my brothers and I spent untold hours felling, cutting, hauling,
bucking, splitting, stacking and replenishing the stockpiles near every stove and furnace throughout the year.
I understood and appreciated having the right tools to do the job, even when they were all hand tools back in the early
days (50's & 60's). In 1962 I bought my first chain saw and never looked back. Still, you needed a good cant hook along with
some other good hand tools, to get the job done. It has been many years since I have needed wood in order to eat or stay warm,
but I have never been without wood to burn, nor do I pass up many opportunities to "bring in some wood". This year when my very
old cant hook (handle) broke again, I was in the process of looking for a new one when I stumbled onto the Logrite aluminum.
I liked the idea of the aluminum handle as I still get into some big stuff every so often, and the wood was always susceptible
to breaking. I figured the worse that could happen is that I would bend the aluminum, yeah right! I cannot imagine what it would
take to bend this thing, nothing I am going to do for sure! I decided to get the 60" model with the log lifting attachment. What
an incredible tool! It bites into any bark on any size log without slippage, and the log lifting attachment allows me to buck big
logs into smaller logs, by myself, whenever I want. And with the leverage of the 60" handle, I can move much larger logs than I ever
imagined. I am 64 and I can move logs around today that would have given me pause to find help 20 years ago. Trust me I am not
stronger than I was 20 years ago, maybe just a bit smarter for having purchased my Logrite cant hook. I love this thing!
Like me, anyone who sees this tool cannot get over how well it is made and how well it works. Thanks for providing us with another
great American Made tool!
The log arch arrived intact was easy to assemble and functioned marvelously.
Our first test haul was a massive 35 inch in diameter,21 foot long douglas
fir sawlog that was successfully transported with ease and absolutly no road surface
disturbance! Thank You for excellent product offerings and fast, efficient service.
Pleasure doing business with you.

My crew grabbed the arch as soon as I had it together and ran into the woods to drag some logs out!
Then they put the hitch on and went to a landing Ĺ mile away to bring back a log left there.
They were ecstatic and saw lots of potential. Iím hopeful they realize the potential and that it
will help get our production up and costs down.
A contractor we had on site felling was also very interested and watched for a while.
Itís a well engineered and constructed product. Congrats on it from that perspective.
Iíll let you know if it reaches my other expectations!

I purchased the first Cant Hook sold on the internet by Logrite a few years ago for use with my sawmill
in Southern CT. The Logrite Cant Hook has outlasted my wooden Cant hook and I would recommend Logrite products

When youíre working with logs, the first consideration should be
safety. Logs are heavy and can get out of control causing damage and injury.
When using a cant hook, itís extremely important that it works reliably
and will not break under load. Iíve used popular cant hooks with wooden
handles for years and was never really happy with them. Few had the right hook
shape to bite into the log and the wooden handle would eventually break. For
sure, if the handle broke, itíd be at the worst possible time.
The first time I handled a LogRite cant hook at a forestry show I knew
it was a vast improvement over the old wooden handled cant hooks. We took
home three LogRite hooks and put all the wooden handled cant hooks in the
corner. Iíve lost track of how many other LogRite cant hooks have been bought
by people that have come to our mill and seen these hooks.
We recently added a fourth LogRite cant hook to our sawmill operation
so that we would have one handy at every station where it could be used.

Although I love a good tool, I never gave my cant hook a lot of thought.
I bought one that looked just like every other cant hook I'd ever seen.
When the logs got big, I soon figured out I needed a bigger cant hook, but
wasn't too crazy about a 60" cant hook with a wooden handle.
I took some good advice and looked at the LogRite. I got the long and strong
handle I was expecting, but also a hook that bites into any log I've ever
tried, a level of fit and finish that would make any tool guy proud, and
a finish that looks new even after a lot of logs have been rolled about.
This isn't your Dad's can't hook (yes, I put the apostrophe in there on purpose),
but a modern tool that your grandkids will still be impressed with decades
from now. For me, there is no other choice for safety, performance, build
quality, or value. This is a whole different animal.

While I am not one to normally write emails to companies about their products
I just received my Logrite Peavey and log jack a few days ago and I have to say
that the product exceeded my expectations in all respects. I find it to be
very well thought out and built like a tank. I was not sure when I placed my
order that the incremental money I spent would be justified (I found other
peaveys available for 1/3 less) but can now say I think your product is
worth the extra money and then some.
Keep up the good work!
I ordered a cant hook and a mill special via the web site on Monday.
They arrived today,less than 24 hours after the order.
They were well packed and arrived way before I expected them.
They look great I can hardly wait to use them.

Some of the best log handling tools made.
I cant say enough good things about logrite, using one of those cant
hooks makes for a quick convert from other types!

Wanted to say thanks for a wonderful tool.
I have a Woodmizer and use the mill fulltime at present.
Got your Cant Hook a few months ago.
I like it!
I especially like the way it grabs big logs.

Fantasic tool. A real mans tool that is extremely well-designed and
engineered. It is good to see that America can still make world-class
I decided after much deliberation to get your product. The cant hook I
received is an extremely well made tool, which makes me proud that I
bought something worthwhile, that is made in the good ole USA.
Keep up the good work!
October 7th 2008,
I just wanted to let you guys know that the 60" Peavey with the log stand
showed up at my front door this past Friday. The wood stand I haven't used
it yet, but the Peavey I put to work Saturday and Sunday. It was everything
I had hoped for and more. The tree that I am working on is an old oak that
came down in a storm. The base of the tree measures 120" around and is 39"
inches across. I am cutting the sections at 20" intervals leaving huge
chunks of wood for me to try and manuver. Before I ordered the Peavey I alone
made the attempt to move the sections of wood and could hardly make the log
rock because it had hit the ground so hard when it fell it impressed it's
self into the wet soft ground. When I put the 60" Peavey to the log and put
my weight into it (223 lbs.) it rolled right out of the rut and I was able
to manuver it over to my log splitter. The other logs which were very large
as well, were laying down the side of this hill and I was able to roll them
after they were cut right back up to the splitter with the Peavey.
how much weight a single person can push and pull with the proper tool in hand.
Your Peavey (my Peavey) saved my back, and I know I could not have gotten this
particular tree cut up and split without it, without asking someone else to
help me. I'm a 52 year old man and all my kids are raised and moved on. Having
your tool in my hand was like having a good helping hand with me all day. Your
tool is very stout and very strong, just holding it you can feel it was designed
to take on the big logs. I know that as long as I show this tool the respect it
was designed to do it will serve me for the rest of my days however long that
may be. As heavy duty as this Peavey is it would really take some serious abuse
to break it. And you know the weight of it really isn't very heavy at all thanks
to the aluminum stock it was made from. I'm now thinking about buying one of
your arches, but because of the price for one of them I have to condition my
wife for a while into thinking like I do. Later.
"actually kinda surprised by it, it's made an impossible
chore almost easy. I've moved logs as big as I can fit on my
mill and it really seems to be up to it. The biggest oak
logs are over 2000 lbs and its all I can do to get them to
roll, but it moves them. The handle flexes a bit, but I
don't move logs that big very often. I got your name from
the Norwood Industries (sawmill) chat room, one guy telling
how LogRite makes the best you can buy. Seems he was right.
Thanks for a quality product, i will recommend it to all the
other sawmill owners i know."
