Electric Actuators for Forestry & Lumber
EDrive Actuators Inc. offers products ideal for use in the forestry and lumber industries. EDrive Actuators’ robust steel construction, proven and unique patented design is the most reliable linear actuator technology available today. These actuators are built to withstand this industry’s demanding environment. Our powerful electric actuators provide accurate positioning at high speeds and with high force for quick response, high levels of precision, reduced operating costs, and rugged design for 24/7 operations.
As a replacement for hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders, EDrive eliminates the need for costly systems comprised of pumps, compressors, valves, manifolds, high pressure lines, and other equipment and components. The associated high maintenance and costs from leaks, spills, hazmat charges and system troubleshooting are also eliminated. EDrive’s electric linear actuators are both environmentally responsible and are easier to maintain by design.
Customers who make the conversion experience increased production levels while saving on operational costs, energy costs as well as total cost of ownership. Taking all of this into account, EDrive Actuators is the only choice.

Founded in 1980, EDrive pioneered the evolution of precision electromechanical actuators with our first patented design. Over the years our business has grown based on our philosophy of design flexibility and rapid response to our customers’ requests. While we offer “standardized” product lines we regularly customize based on specific needs.
While other actuator designs force a particular motor decision, EDrive linear actuators are designed to suit virtually any motor, gearbox, or gear reducers the customer chooses to use. In-line as well as parallel offset configurations are standard with 1:1 and 2:1 synchronous gearbelt ratios available.
EDrive customers enjoy an unsurpassed commitment to superior quality, integrity, and customer service. Our experienced staff provides technical support as needed to assist in specifying the most appropriate solutions. Whether you need a standard product or a fully customized actuator EDrive is your answer.
