A wedge is almost as essential to tree felling and bucking as a chainsaw. When properly placed, wedges help keep the tree from pinching your chainsaw bar, and helps the tree to fall in the direction of the notch cut. Wedges also help to protect you and your equipment. With proper placement, wedges help keep the tree from falling backward or pinching your chainsaw bar. Like all STIHL products, these wedges can take a beating. STIHL wedges are made of high-impact polymer for long-lasting use.

    Always have a couple with you
    Lightweight and tough but easy on your chain. If you are cutting wood, you need to have a few these with you. For the windblown trees I deal with, I am constantly needing to use wedges, and more than one at a time. When you have to stick your saw back into the tree, no need to worry about hitting your wedge with your chain, these wedges wont damage your chain. The best part about these wedges, they are really inexpensive.

    High QUALITY and holds up to hard use!
    I have purchased every size of STIHL wedges over the years and use them regularly in my felling and bucking processes. These wedges really take a beating and they have saved my bars many times. If I'm bucking large trees,I place a wedge in the top of the cut after about six inches of cut, this is truly a time saver,as well as a money saver when cutting firewood. Inexpensive and well worth their weight in gold! I use them all the time in the woods.

    These wedges won't wreck your chain!
    Great, and I love driving them in with my Stihl Pro Splitting Hatchet. Sometimes, you have to cut through them with your saw & they won't destroy your chain. I suggest offering optional angles for the larger trees we have to wedge over. Doubling them up can be risky, as they can jump out while being driven in.

    Advantage- Twisted Wedge
    The design, materials and construction of this tool are improvements over standard metal wedges. It is lighter. The "teeth" may not look/be sharp, yet do hold the wedge in wet, icy, frozen wood quickly. The head and point seem to be somewhat hardened....hard, but have not chipped, fractured, broken; head hadn't mushroomed. The design reinforces the lower 2". (bends, doesn't break). DO NOT stress-test this wedge by attempting to split a dried bole of fatwood at a 45-degree angle to where a ... read more large limb had grown out from trunk. It was harder than Fat-Boy's head. I finally did split that mess, after nearly an hour with a 20-lb. sledge. Half of the tip was bent back on itself (I have pictures), which explains the slow progress. My X-Ray vision wasn't working so well, thus couldn't see inside the wood. Stihl replaced the wedge in short-order.

    Had to have this unique style splitting wedge!
    I stopped by my STIHL dealer last week and saw this wedge on the shelf. Me being the type of person to purchase most anything STIHL, I brought it home and tried it on a few logs to split. The twisted wedge made splitting almost as easy as a hot knife through butter! It's lightweight and starts into the block of wood easily, almost like pounding a large screw into wood! Reasonable price for something this easy to use.

    A Must Have for Chainsaw Work!
    Any serious chainsaw user will know what I mean when I say that a wedge pouch is an absolute must have when working in the woods! This pouch has made it so easy and convenient for me to keep wedges and other tools handy for when I need them. Sure, you can put wedges and tools in your pockets, I myself did that for awhile. All I have to say about that is, it got old pretty quick. After using this just once, it has become an indispensable part of my tool belt. The pouch is deep enough to ... read more securely hold a 12" wedge, and leave about 2.5-3" sticking out the top. It held the two 12" wedges I have, along with a 10" wedge with no problem. The gussets on it have been optimized for holding tools as well. One side holds a bar wrench, and has a Velcro flap to hold it in place. The other side is used for a file. It has been stitched so that there is a slot just big enough to slip a file down into and not have it flop around. A file, with a handle, sits in there very nicely. The bottom of both gussets are open, so the tools can reach down to the bottom of the pouch. The smaller pouch in the front has a Velcro flap, and is big enough to hold any other necessary tool you may need. I was able to put two 5.5" wedges in it, along with a spark plug (I keep mine in an old prescription medication bottle for protection), a small screwdriver for carburetor adjustment and one of those black Torx wrenches that STIHL offers. I probably could have put another thing or two in there. I took out the wedges, and tried out two 18" loops of chain in there, along with the other things, with no problem at all. The fabric used to make this pouch looks and feels like Cordura, so it should be fairly durable. I don't own a logger's tape...yet, but I'm sure the D-ring works fine for that. The one drawback about this wedge pouch is the belt loop. You cannot use anything wider than a 2" belt to hold this pouch. Anything wider, and it will NOT fit. I would suggest that the belt loop be made to accommodate up to a 3" wide belt, in my opinion. That might just be what makes or breaks a sale. So there you have it! The first in-depth review of STIHL's wedge pouch. I guess what I am trying to say is, this is one handy, versatile accessory to have on your tool belt...if it fits on your belt that is.

    Keeps Your Wedges "Holstered" for a "Quick Draw" !
    "sawdust" made excellent comments about suggested uses for the Wedge Tool Pouch. I used to hand-carry my wedges around & throw them near the base of the tree I was felling. Sometimes the wedges would get covered with chips or get knocked into the duff while I was jockeying around my position while sawing. Then I'd go on & forget about them & have to come back for an aggravating search. The real benefit, though, is enhanced felling SAFETY ! When you are felling a difficult tree (rotten, ... read more lean, snag, odd branching, close structures) it is imperative to have quick access to your wedges when the situation demands. This Wedge Tool Pouch does just that. The response time of "quick-drawing" your wedges may make the difference between crushing a roof, crushing your saw, or crushing your co-workers' (or your own) skull! Plus, it keeps you from overstretching the rear pockets of your pants from repeated wedge insertion, resulting in your wallet falling out somewhere in the woods. I fully agree with modifying it so it will fit at least a 3" Loggers Tool Belt.
