The skidding cone is an essential tool for small-scale timber harvesting activities. It prevents logs from getting stuck in roots, stumps and other obstacles. Its elliptical-shaped nose makes it robust and allows it to slide along residual trees, thus avoiding injuries during regeneration. Made of high-performance polymer plastic, it is lightweight, flexible and virtually unbreakable.
Its large opening can fit a trunk of 20'' in diameter, or several bundled stems. The friction on the ground is considerably reduced, which makes it possible to pull heavier loads. It can be used with a portable winch, behind an all-terrain vehicle, a snowmobile, a small tractor and even a horse, in any season, since it can withstand temperatures down to -22°F.
The cone is a must-have for pulling logs with a capstan winch! Use it with our chokers for best performances.

I’ve been using this skidding cone for almost 15 years, and it’s seen some really rough duty. I finally broke my first one pulling old growth lodgepole with my truck. More than it was designed for. I can’t work without one, so I’m on my second one. Not bad, 15 years of abuse. It’s one tough piece of plastic. Really saves tearing up the ground too. Great tool!
I have recently purchased a skidding cone, a snatch block, a caribiner and a tree saver strap.
All of these items are of the highest quality and help me tremendously in skidding logs.
