Cat Forestry Equipment

West Virginia’s Walker Machinery Co. has a more than 60-year track record of helping forestry businesses as well as others throughout the state achieve success and profitability. A lot has changed in that time, including increased competition, tighter regulatory controls and higher overhead costs, but one thing that has remained constant is the level of service we have provided our clients.

With locations stretching from Jackson, Ohio, to Beckley and Summersville, Walker is well positioned to provide expert assistance throughout our region. As well, we are the only authorized Cat® dealer in the area, which means we are the only place to sell the company’s newest and most technologically advanced forestry machines.


Machines That Work for Today’s Forestry Operators

Cat manufactures one of the widest ranges of forestry equipment in the world. Built to provide reliable service and cost-effective performance at every stage of a project’s lifecycle, today’s Cat machines offer everything you need to get the job done right. From dozers, excavators and other core machines that expedite road building and transportation to specialized feller bunchers, harvesters and telehandlers, there’s a Cat forestry machine for nearly every task.

Like all new Cat equipment, the company’s forestry machines are built for long life, fuel efficiency and easy compliance with all relevant regulatory standards. Legendary Cat quality means even older machines command a strong resale value, should you ever decide to sell.

The best way to see the quality of Cat forestry equipment for yourself is to arrange a demo with a Walker location near you. Contact a sales representative today for more information.

Built Strong From the Ground Up

With the rough terrain in West Virginia, forestry equipment can take a real beating. It takes a strong undercarriage to weather tough operating conditions and continue to deliver the performance you require. Today’s Cat machines follow a long history of innovation in undercarriage technology, with each new iteration producing marked improvements in maintenance requirements and overall operating costs.

To get the most out of your machine, regular track adjustments are an important part of service. Walker is able to provide on-site repairs and maintenance to your entire fleet. We can inspect and adjust your undercarriage components to minimize wear to bushing and sockets, links, tracks, idlers and other components.


While the quality of Cat machines is unparalleled, how they are deployed can have as significant an impact on your bottom line as their performance and productivity. Product Link, available on all new Cat forestry equipment, is an integrated solution that provides real-time access to fuel usage, availability, location and other important data from any computer or mobile device.

As the backbone of a comprehensive equipment management solution, Product Link can be used to get the most out of your machines, reduce your liability and save on fuel costs.


If you’re in the market to buy forestry equipment in Jackson, OH, Huntington, WV, or beyond, make Walker your first call. In addition to selling the latest Cat machines, we also offer comprehensive parts and service, including 24-hour on-site emergency repairs. Call, email or visit a location near you for more information.
