Hardwood Solutions requires a robust winch for pulling heavy hardwood loads into their drying kilns. They have utilized Columbia Winches from Allied Power Products, Inc. (APPI) since 2014 with excellent results. According to Nathan Hostetler of Hardwood Solutions:

“We have been using the Columbia WG11000 AC electric winch for our hardwood drying kiln since our initial purchase of one of their units in June of 2014. The unit has worked flawlessly for years, and we have just now ordered a replacement unit.”

The Columbia WG11000 provides an impressive 11,000 pounds of line pull to manage the heavyweight hardwoods. With a 7.7 feet per minute line speed on the first layer, it delivers smooth and controlled load movement into the kiln. Hardwood Solutions trusts Columbia Winches to satisfy their demanding production needs kiln after kiln.
