Wedges
« on: January 21, 2015, 03:59:26 pm »
So what is some good stackable wedges?   School me.

I only have a small stihl one, large generic wedge and a old steel one that dont get used.  Figure I might want to update with my date with some big poplars this spring.  Just in case.

Madsens has some that are rifled made for stacking. K&H do pretty good and are my favorite ones followed by the red heads and madsens brand.

Yeah those are the K&H. The black bear ones are the ones made to stack.

The black bear rifled wedges are pretty nice I have two of them for just that stacking them to get more lift. I have used them a bunch and really like them. I also got a double taper double lift wedge but have not used it much to say weather I really like it or not. I would have to say you are going to get more lift from the black bears then the double taper.  I would also like to say I am a big fan of the hard head wedge. I know that's not what you asked for but if you are updating i think you would be happy with them they sure can take a pounding.

I have maybe a half dozen different sizes but they are Oregon and Husqvarna wedges

I have some steel ones too.

I like the cheaper ones in case they somehow get left out in the woods and not found. A dozen of Madsens house brand were $36 a while back. Some the of the longer K&H are double taper for lift. If those poplars are 30" or bigger you can get 12" wedges that will lift a lot at the end. The shorter K&H are nice as they have more lift than the Madsens and redheads.

The h
Hard Head (steel head insert) are nice if you need to persuade a stubborn tree.
