    The results also indicated that the productivity value of Urus MIII skyline varies among the sites ( m≥/h in Site-1, m≥/h in Site-2, m≥/h in Site-3 for uphill and m≥/h. The authors tested two mini-yarders, one for uphill and the other for downhill extraction. The two machines were modern commercial models, offering state-of-the-art yarding technology on a miniature scale and at a much lower cost than required for purchasing a full-size tower yarder. The two units must not be regarded as alternative, but rather as complementary, since they offer different Cited by:

    Skyline yarding activities for even-aged and uneven-aged used approximately 64% and 71%, respectively, of the total fuel consumption for each m 3 of redwood sawlogs harvested. It should be noted that the helicopter yarding distances (– m) were much longer than the distance used for the ground-based (– m) and skyline systems Cited by: 9. instruction from books, magazines, television and the occasional class is a slow way to learn a complex task. In fact, many woodworkers spend a long time (years!) simply accumulating machines and tools before they ever build a single piece of furniture. And when they do begin to build, they inevitably discover that they actually need.

Smaliwood yarding systems and techniques to aid forest managers and operators (Aulerich(Kellogg b). Several techniques developed during that evaluation have been successfully applied in the logging industry. Innovative thinking of loggers, land managers, and equipment manufacturers has helped produce new systems and techniques for handling smallwood.

Research on skyline machines and techniques currently available for yarding smallwood is reviewed. Three categories of machines are discussed: used yarders (with a low initial cost) adaptable to smallwood, new and versatile yarders (with a high Initial cost) manufactured in the United States, and new, foreign-built yarders (with a low initial cost) specifically developed for by: 1.

Looking for cells which can be reached in skyline yarding. Figure 3. Aspect checking of skyline yarding path. If the intervisibility condition between two cells is not fulfilled, a different signal value will be assigned to the cell, indicating that skyline extraction is not possible and a tree jack must be used for the skyline extraction path.

A standing skyline in a gravity-fed (shotgun) configuration with a motorized carriage is the most common yarding system used in the region. Carriage outhaul works by gravity. The slackline configuration requires a haulback, using a three-drum yarder, with the additional line attached to the rear of the carriage.

The “carriage” machine is a log-mover that rides on an aerially-suspended cable “skyline”. Most common in Oregon is the radio-controlled, motorized carriage (called “car”); its’ movements are controlled by workers with radio devices (called “bugs”), and audible signals (called “tooters”).

This form of hauling, or "yarding," was called ground-lead logging, because logs were dragged on the ground or along skid roads. It was the main system used for almost 30 years. In the Comox Logging Co imported the first of half a dozen Lidgerwood skidders, huge machines designed for logging Louisiana swamps.

skidding machine itself can operate on moderate slopes if the soil is stable. Removing trees from steep slopes or lesser slopes on easily erodible soils calls for the capability to winch logs up or down slopes while limiting the machine's movement to skid roads, ridge tops, etc. where soil disturbance is minimized and erosion controllable.

small mechanized yarding THERE IS A growing demand for medium-sized, towable logging arches. At least two are available that are designed to be pulled by ATVs (All-Terrain Vehicles -- 4-wheel drive, cc, which sometimes can be fitted with special hitches.

Skyline. Yarding system where a tight line is run from a head spar to a back or tail spar, keeping the turn well up. Slackline. Yarding system using a large drum to raise and lower a skyline (normally two inches in diameter). Slack puller. One who pulls slack by hand - later adapted to.

Written by turners for turners, the book offers expert advice on safety, tools, and techniques, plus a few projects. For new woodworkers, we recommend Woodworking Written in textbook format, this book covers the basics of setting up a shop, selecting and using a basic assortment of hand and power tools, jigs, and a few projects designed Written: This thesis proposes a new interlock mechanism for a running skyline yarder which utilizes an automotive-type bevel gear differential.

It proposes to place this differential inside the haulback drum, which also acts as a gear box/oil bath. A hydrostatic transmission is used to control the speed ratio across the differential. The resulting interlock permits the relative drum speeds to be.

This machine integrates a modern 3-drum winch and a harvesting head on a wheeled excavator base machine and is unique in that, as it uses a non-guyed running skyline setup, yarding and processing cannot take place simultaneously as it does on most European tower Cited by: 2.This case study analyzed the performance of a start-up cable yarding crew in southern China through operational monitoring by consecutive time studies, long-term log book recordings and efficiency evaluation by stochastic frontier analysis (SFA).
