About Us

Most successful companies have a founder with roots in the industry, Jason Lutke is no exception. The company was founded in 1992 with a Gafner 4500 iron mule, straight truck, tri-axle trailer and a solid work ethic. While employed at Pine Tech Lumber Company and harvesting part-time with SD Warren until 1996, founder Jason Lutke took the plunge and expanded, adding two forwarders and two Hydro-Ax feller bunchers to improve production and keep up with increased demand coming from solid recommendations by landowners, mill operators and timber companies who took notice of Jason's policy of going the extra mile to do the job right and treat the land as if it were his own. Officially incorporating Lutke Forest Products in 2000, adding Lutke Hydraulics in 2008 providing the logging professionals in the area with Hydraulic hoses, repairs, chainsaws, saw chain, files, small engine repair and a machine shop to repair pins & bushings as well as provide fabricating services. In 2011 the most recent of the Lutke family companies was added – Lutke Equipment. Jason Lutke has been no stranger to buying and selling equipment for use in fast-growing Lutke Forest Products that runs up to eight full-time crews. You could say JASON KNOWS LOGGING EQUIPMENT!
