Paper, Logging and Forestry Applications

Applications for pressure washers in the paper, logging and forestry businesses

Whether it's in the maintenance shop, on the logging road, in the timber stand, in the sawmill, or in the paper-making operation, pressure washers are a vital part in the success of each phase in pulp and paper industries.


Saw mills can use pressure washers to blow off rock and sand which in turn can save on replacing expensive blades. Using pressure washers in timber stands to clean chain saws is also common. Clean saws also cut more efficiently and allow easier safety and maintenance inspections.


Pressure washers are also used for preventative maintenance and repair. They are excellent when used to strip grease off equipment so that mechanics can see where the problems are and then complete the work. Preventative maintenance is the key in keeping sawmill and logging equipment running. Getting a start on fixing cracks and leaks before they get too big can add years to the life of machinery.

Other applications may include cleaning dirt, grime, dust, oil, grease, resins, bleaches and chemicals off of rolls, filters, forklifts, balers, conveyors, and other machinery. Keeping equipment clean can reduce downtime for all boilers, evaporator concentrators, bleaching towers, pulp drain lines, wire pitts, and dryer belts. Even log truckers can make great use of a pressure washer by keeping their rigs clean.

  • Fuel-Fired models (Oil, LP or Natural Gas)
