This 60" peavey is the same size our Standard Duty peavey but features a reinforced handle for moving those extra heavy logs in extreme applications.
All the Xtreme Duty tools are powder coated yellow to distinguish them from our Standard Duty tools.
|Xtreme Duty LogRite Peaveys have a reinforced handle for those really hard to move logs. Great for veneer buyers and sawyers without hydraulic log loaders.|
What is the difference between a Peavey and a Cant Hook?
Traditionally cant hooks were used around sawmills for turning cants. While peaveys were designed for and used for river drives.
Both tools consist of a handle with a swing hook. The difference between the two is what is on the end of the handle and the way the tools grip a log. A cant hook has a small toe hook on the end which provides a second biting edge. A peavey has a point on the end which is used to separate logs.
Today these tools are used interchangeably and are capable of doing the same jobs. So it comes down to personal preference when choosing between the two tools. We have noticed regional preferences.
Can be stuck between logs to free them.
Point can be stuck in ground to stand the tool up making it easy to find.
