A very popular logging peavey. It is slightly lighter and easier to work with than our larger logging peaveys. Less handle arc means you can work the tops of the log piles or between closely spaced logs.
Peaveys are great for handling logs and cants or beams around the sawmill. They also work great for rolling logs when cutting firewood. The Peavey is similar to a cant hook except it has a pointed spike at the working end. The spike allows you to separate stacked logs easily, and you can stick it into soft ground for handy access around the worksite. LogRite standard series peaveys are made with 1-3/4" diameter aircraft aluminum handles, which are stronger and easier to use than traditional wood handled peaveys.
The bright blue handle is easy to see around a sawmill or woodlot. The heat treated, zinc plated hook is built to last. The textured rubber grip is easy to hold.

Peaveys vs. Cant Hooks -- From the Manufacturer
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.
