It does look like a Peavey that is used to roll logs but I have never seen one with a handle that short.

Probably is a log roller but another option would be a ice block carrier. I remember my X wife's grandfather telling me that he used to cut blocks of ice from Rondeau Bay back in the 40's and carry them back to shore with a apparatus that looked much like this.
