Giant Hoist

25,000 lbs of Heavy-Duty Hydraulic Lift.

The SWEED Giant Hoist, powered hydraulically, is designed to maintain constant feed height into the dryer tipple feeder. The fast-down feature reduces the downtime spent waiting for a new supply of veneer, allowing for accumulation of the previous veneer charge, eliminating gaps from missed feeds between veneer loads. It features sturdy beam construction, with heavy-duty electrically activated transfer chains capable of indexing up to 25,000-pound loads.

Our History

It all started with an imported gang saw. After WWII, three brothers from Germany migrated to the United States and built a sawmill on Galls Creek in Gold Hill, Oregon. Dissatisfied with the imported gang saw they were using, they decided they could make a better saw themselves.
