WesSpur stocks inexpensive plastic wedges as well as the best-quality USA-made felling wedges with added features like extra lift or hardened striking surfaces. With our wide selection of felling wedges, you'll be able to find the right selection of wedges to provide just the right amount of lift while felling trees. You'll also find the innovative DK Slider exclusively at WesSpur. This tool is better than wedges for chunking down large firewood rounds with ease. You'll also find the original Spencer logging tapes at the bottom of the page.
Introducing the DK Slider, a great tool to assist in bringing down big rounds. The DK Slider is inserted behind the bar as the cut is made, and keeps the round from pinching the saw blade as the cut is completed. Once the cut is finished, the DK Slider lets the cutter push large rounds with ease, cutting down the friction and making it easy to slide the cuts off.
The DK Slider is named for its inventor, production climber and ISA-certified arborist Dan Kraus.

Rated: Excellent Review by: Clint Heser
“ I really like the DK Slider and have been able to chunk down much larger pieces without cutting a notch (just a straight cross cut). I also like that the width is just right to not get the bar stuck and that pieces slide off that much easier. I couldn't recommend this clever devise more!”
Heavy-duty, long-lived wedges for year-round use. Double-lift (shown here) with a steeper taper to add lift in a hurry, and single-lift available.
Hard Head wedges have a textured, super tough, bright yellow, high impact poly plastic body made from specially engineered materials that will resist the most severe shock. The ends of the wedge are steel for a hard striking surface ideal for serious pounding. Lightweight but sturdy to take ample punishment.

The Rattlewedge is a ratcheting wedge for use in directional falling. After placing it in the center of the backcut opposite the intended falling direction, the user cranks the ratcheting handle to screw the wedge into the cut. This forces backcut to open and causes the piece to fall in the correct direction. Caution: will not work on extremely large tree or trees with heavy back lean.
