Breaker Bar and Cant Hook

Question

Thought I'd post in this forum as it seemed the best fit.  I have a new (to me) saw and have also bought a 'Chinese' chainsaw mill to have a play with some felled oaks and other trees I have 'lying' around.  In order to help me more the logs to better positions, I'm fairly sure I need a breaker bar / cant hook such as this:  

WWW.TOOLSTODAY.CO.UK

<h2>Husqvarna Long Breaking Bar With Cant Hook 130cm</h2> <p>The new design and improved material specification gives a durable and robust product. Forged...

  I've also seen this tool that might allow me to do a few extra tasks such as raising the log for cross cutting, raising it when milling etc etc. 

FOREST-MASTER.COM

Buy the Forest Master FMLL Log Lifter. Easily lift and chainsaw large logs into manageable lengths. The FMLL lifts the whole log off the ground at once.

 

 

Any advice / feedback on either tool or suggestions as to what else to look at?  The Forest Master one maybe looks flimsy, so I don't know how long it will last, plus I won't be moving logs on nice smooth concrete surfaces!!

Stihl stockyard cant hook.

 

 

Don’t Stihl just re-brand Logrites? Obviously not their wooden handles ones but the aluminium ones?
