Manufacturers' Representative
As manufacturers' representatives; we represent a majority of the brand name manufacturers of new truss equipment. We buy, sell and trade ... new equipment for the truss industry.


Salter Associates represents a majority of the brand name manufacturers of new truss equipment, as well as individual truss plants, that want to buy or have surplus equipment to sell.




Most truss plants now use "Miter -Cut Chop Saws", purchased from Home centers, etc., to cut single or replacement components needed for special trusses and applications.

We offer an industrial version of this type saw, made with specific modifications in place, that will upgrade the chop saw to a comparable version of the "center line saw" that is presently being used by the truss industry.

The new Quick Cut Saw will cut roof and floor truss webs and chords with center line pivotal-cutting points and a 125 degree quadrant cut ability. This saw is also capable of cutting double stacked materials. It has an optional 10’ / 20' conveyor system available with or without a manual or mechanical measuring device. It has a rotating protractor, mounted under the saw bench, for setting angles, air activated disk brakes and additional manual locking angle stops.
