Forestry & Paper

From forest to paper processing plant, Columbus McKinnon products are there every step of the way.


When working in the forestry and paper industries, there are a variety of unique needs and challenges. Columbus McKinnon products can be found at all stages of the logging and paper production processes, from manual tools and wireless controls that maneuver trees to a full range of control products used in paper processing plants. 

For logging applications, our Dixie Industries' brand products range from peavies to hookaroons, all crafted from the highest quality materials.
