Barker Arms

Debarker Arms

Webco manufactures a large range of replacement debarker arms for the sawmill industry today. Manufactured from high alloy materials provides our arms to give reliable and exceptional strength for longer service and reduced maintenance. We manufacture both plate arms and T-style barker arms using a carbide lead edge or hard surface lead edge.

Debarker arms are subjected to high impact loads and excessive wear while in service. The leading edge of a barker arm is critical that it is maintained properly. Our results have shown that our carbide added to the lead edge gives excellent wear resistance while maintaining a sharp edge and extending the life of your debarker arms. This helps eliminate buildup work and constant maintenance to increase production and lowering costs for your company. The tip holder on a debarker arm is as equally important as the lead edge. Good contact between the tip holder and the debarker tip is imperative.

Debarker Arm Repairs

Webco repairs damaged and broken debarker arms. In order to service you better, we only replace the parts that need to be not the entire arm.

Some common repairs are:

  • Replace/change the tool holder
  • Build up the lead edge & hard surface
  • Sharpen or replace carbide lead edge inserts
  • Replace the lead edge
  • Complete rebuild & reuse the hub
