Log Peavey

What is a Log Peavey?

A log peavey is an essential daily forestry tool used for turning heavy logs or dislodging them from entanglements. It consists of a wooden handle, a metal spike protruding from the end and a sharp-toothed curved swing hook. The metal spike can be rammed into a log, then the swing hook would grab the log at a second location.

Dixie Peavey for logs - Solid Socket Style

Dixie Industries story dates back to 1910 where William, Emil, and Fred Stocker came to Chattanooga, Tennessee from Saginaw, Michigan to escape the cold winters. Due to the rise of the timber industry and the abundance of strong Hickory wood in Chattanooga, the brothers incorporated Dixie Logging Tool Company there.

Since 1910, Dixie Industries has provided the forestry and logging industry with a top-quality tool. Generations of loggers have come to rely on the quality and dependability of Dixie Industries for long life and the ability to withstand the most rugged forestry applications.

Dixie proudly manufactures these Cant Hooks in the USA. The log peavey's handle is top quality straight grain white mountain hickory hardwood, kiln-dried to 18% moisture content, then precision cut to an exact fit. With a separate socket and pick, this peavey has the advantage of allowing the parts to be replaced individually.

  • Handle Type: Hickory Hardwood that is the hardest and strongest wood found in North America. Read more about Peavey Handle from Dixie Industries
  • Duckbill Hooks: Drop forged with the bills ground to a fine point.
  • Socket and Pick: Built to last
    A drawn carbon steel socket is held in place with a special retaining tab forged into the pick.
    The pick is forged from high carbon steel before being solidly driven into the wooden handle.

Peavey vs Cant Hook

Similarity: Peaveys and Cant hooks are important day-to-day logging tool that has a similar structure - a handle and a swing hook. They can be used interchangeably and able to perform the same jobs today, such as rolling and turning logs. 

Difference: The main difference between the two is the end, determinating how the tool grips logs. 
A Cant Hook: With the blunt end up against a log or pole, the hook of the cant hook can grab it at a second location. Once engaged, the handle gives the operator leverage to reposition it. Some cant hooks 
A peavey: It has a strong forged spike providing greater control of the movement of the log. With a spiked end, the log peavey 
can be stuck between logs to free them or stuck in the ground to stand the tool up making it easy to find. Usually, the handle of a peavey is longer.
