Wedges
 

Product Description

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. 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.

Available sizes include: 5.5”, 7.5”, 10”, 10” (Tri-taper), 12”.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wedges go with my saws. I never cut without them, or my chaps, both make cutting easier and safer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Primo wedges I've had competitors wedges and nothing compares to the stihls. The plastic is solid and all the different sizes are useful for all sorts of situations. The small one is my goto wedge as it fits nice in my back pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insurance I have been using wedges for thirty years or more. I've used Stihl brand more than any other because they are tough. I have never snapped one in two, other brands I have though. The heads will begin to mushroom after many beatings. I've hit them with hammers, axes, rocks, and even pieces of cut wood without damaging them. I've hit the tips with the chain from time to time all this does is rough up the thin edge of the wedge as well as shorten them. I use them for bucking and felling. Using them has saved me time and prevented damage to the bars and chains. I always have some in my stuff bag and saw cases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stihl wedges are the best. Whether you are controlling a fall, or preventing a pinch while bucking, you gotta have a few good wedges. Stihl wedges are strong. They don't break, even in the cold. Just as importantly, they will not damage your chain when you inevitably cut into one. I have several of these nice little guys in various sizes, and none have let me down. I cannot say the same for other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and light I have used other brand's wedges and they broke in half only the second time I used it. The Stihl wedges are stronger and more reliable than others. I use the wedges for felling and bucking. Wedges are the safest way to fell a tree. I own three Stihl wedges, I smash them into the tree to prevent bar pinch and to control the tree while felling. I have hit the wedges with my saw and no damage occurred to the chain. Very useful tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
