No matter what type of logging equipment or supplies you are looking for, our friendly and knowledgeable team can help you find the right tools for the job.
Axes and Mauls
Axes and mauls are the perfect tools for chopping and splitting wood on the jobsite. While axes are designed to cut across wood fibres and are ideal for chopping, mauls are designed to divide a piece of wood in two by forcing the wood fibres apart and are the perfect choice for splitting wood.
Butt rigging helps ensure that the butt hitching process runs smoothly. This type of rigging equipment is used once all the branches have been removed from a tree, leaving only the trunk. Butt rigging is attached to the tree just above the section that is being cut in order to ensure that the tree falls in the right direction.
Cable clamps, also known as wire rope clamps, can be used for a wide variety of different logging applications. From rigging to temporary guardrail systems, from securing loads to basically any work involving cables, cable clamps provide a high level of strength you can depend on.
Choker hooks are perfect for helping secure chains around logs that are being hoisted, so that the chains do not slip and allow the log to fall. This type of logging equipment comes in a wide range of different sizes that correspond with the appropriate size of chain.
Fire Pump Plastic Backpack
Fire pump plastic backpacks are a must have on any type of logging site, as they are the ideal choice for fighting wildfires. These heavy-duty fire pumps will not puncture easily and feature a high-capacity pump that offers a range of different spray patterns.
Grapples are designed to handle long poles and are ideal for cleaning up wood waste, refuse, and bulky demolition debris after a logging job. At Western Equipment, we offer a wide range of grapple parts to help ensure that your grapple is in perfect working condition.
Lifting Chain Assemblies
Lifting chain assemblies, including slip hooks, grab hook assemblies, chain-lifting slings, lifting chains, and lifting chain hardware, are designed to help lift and move large logs and other objects. Lifting chain assemblies are available in a wide combination of parts and accessories, all of which can be purchased separately.
Lifting and Skidding Tongs
Lifting and skidding tongs are both designed to help move logs from one location to another; however, they cannot be used for the same applications. While skidding tongs are ideal for dragging or skidding logs across the ground, they cannot be used for overhead lifting. Lifting tongs, on the other hand, can be used for overhead lifting but do not work as well for skidding purposes.
Logging blocks are an invaluable part of most rigging setups, as they are needed for certain types of logging applications. All of our logging blocks are built with loggers in mind, providing tougher and stronger equipment you can depend on.
Marlin spikes are old-fashioned logging tools that are specifically designed to aid in tasks, such as untying knots in rope and splicing wire rope. This type of logging equipment is made from special, hardened steel with a tapered tip that is driven into the wire rope using a splicing hammer.
A Pulaski is a versatile tool that combines an axe and an adze in one head and is ideal for logging and firefighting purposes. This special tool can be used in trail construction, logging, and other outdoor work, such as digging holes in root-bound or hard soil.
Roller chains are most commonly used for the transmission or mechanical power on industrial and agricultural machinery, such as on conveyors in sawmills and lumber yards. These chains are made up of short cylindrical rollers which are held together by side links. Roller chains can be attached to a sprocket for a simple yet reliable means of power transmission.
Shackles are designed to provide a high level of strength and are ideal for moving loads from many different directions. Shackles come in a wide range of different styles which can be used for a wide variety of logging applications. Some of the most popular types of shackles include:
- Anchor shackles
- Chain shackles
- Headboard shackles
- Snap shackles
- Twist shackles
Sleeves are designed to create loop ends on wire rope, often in conjunction with thimbles, or to attach two assemblies together. Sleeves are available in a wide range of different materials, making it easy to find the right sleeve for your specific needs. Some of the different types of sleeves include:
- Aluminum sleeves
- Carbon steel sleeves
- Copper sleeves
- Stainless steel sleeves
Wire rope is made up of one or more strands (commonly six strands), laid spirally around a steel or fibre core. The particular type of wire used in this kind of rope can be made from several different types of material, such as steel, iron, stainless steel, and high carbon steel, and is available in a range of different grades.
Wire Rope Assemblies
Wire rope can be used in a wide range of different applications both inside and outside of the forestry industry. In most cases, each type of application requires its own wire rope assembly. Some of the different types of wire rope assemblies available are:
- Bespoke assemblies
- Control cables
- Fall arrest systems
- Garage door cables
- Gym cables
- Hose safety cables
- Industrial door cables
- Security cables
- Winch rope
