Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Two systems are analyzed where chainsaws are used to fell, limb, top, and buck and rubber-tired cable skidders move the wood. Residue recovery is introduced through the addition of a 120-horsepower mobile chipper with self-mounted knuckleboom loader and two used chip vans. The productivity and cost of the residue recovery component is analyzed over a range of stand types and factors affecting productivity and costs.
