You need more than an equipment provider. You need a Partner, Fan, and Advocate.

Logging is a way of life. A calling passed through generations. One that gets in your blood and takes everything you've got. But one that you'll never give up. And that's why we're dedicated to providing equipment and solutions specifically for the work you do. It’s our way of making one of the toughest jobs in the world just a little bit easier.


Our technology combines with your work ethic to get the job done.
