While you may associate diesel fuel with the big rigs on the highway hauling goods and materials, there’s more to it than that!
Off-road diesel fuels no small number of Central Pennsylvania industries, including lumber and agriculture. Many local farms, sawmills and logging companies know that Snedeker Energy is the company they can trust to always have the off-road diesel they need when they need it.
Because we are a local business with 65 years of experience, we understand the needs of your business and can provide responsive, personal service.
The lumber industry is part of the roots of Pennsylvania. It is estimated that, before European settlement, 98% of the land here was forest. The first sawmill opened in the 1680s.
Today, lumber remains an important part of the Commonwealth’s economy and history. It supports 64,000 jobs and contributes $36 billion to the Pennsylvania economy.
While much has changed in the world of logging and sawmills over the past 300 years, the demand for efficient, quality work remains unchanged.
To help local logging and sawmill businesses meet that demand, Snedeker Energy offers customized off-road-diesel fuel services. The fuel powers equipment including skidders, which remove logs from the woods and bring them to the on-site sawmill or to a truck that will transport them to a sawmill.
Diesel is the superior fuel for sawmills, as it provides more torque and is more fuel efficient than gasoline.
Off-road diesel is an essential fuel in construction, as evidenced by the fact that 55% of all off-road diesel fuel usage in the United States is by the construction industry. Off-road diesel powers more than 75% of all off-road construction equipment.
Think about the wide range of equipment at a construction site. Much of it is powered by diesel, including:
Snedeker Energy is on hand to make sure all of that equipment has the off-road diesel fuel it needs for a full day’s work.
We supply off-road diesel not only to construction businesses, but to local municipalities for their off-road equipment.
Off-road diesel is also essential on local farms, whether it’s a dairy farm, a grain farm, or a farm devoted to greenhouses, nurseries, landscaping or Christmas trees.
Farms depend on off-road diesel to power equipment and machinery such as tractors, irrigation equipment, harvesters and generators. Generators are especially important on dairy farms to keep milking, cooling, pasteurization and by-product production going in the event of a power outage.
