Dixie peavies, similar to cant hooks, are used to move, roll, slide or float logs or poles into position. The spike is rammed into a log or pole, then the hook grabs the log at a second location. Once engaged, the handle gives the operator leverage to reposition it. The pointed tip also makes it easier to get in between poles to separate them. Dixie Industries manufactures two styles of peavies: a tubular steel socket style and a rafting/bangor style.
