An Electrician Inc.’s DC & AC Log Carriage Drives not only improve performance, they also reduce energy consumption. This translates to greater productivity and higher profits! Our SC430+ drive performs with an enhanced degree of response not attainable with other Log Carriage Drives. The main Log Carriage Drive consideration is to maximize lines per minute. We analyze our clients’ systems and recommend the best combination for their carriage. Each drive system is carefully engineered for reliability and performance. Major considerations for our designs are: cable drum diameter, gear ratio, motor base speed and torque, carriage weight, “most common” log length and mechanical inertia.


Every drive is custom designed for its application and features; the options best suited for the environment in which it must work and the job it’s intended to do. All equipment is fully tested by our expert technicians before shipment to the mill site. We provide 24 hour parts and field service for every drive we sell. Call us today to find out how easily we can build one for your facility! Call An Electrician Inc. today → We Can Harness the POWER You Need!
