Three small tractors--a Holder A-60, Pasquali 993, and Forest Ant--were tested for suitability in skidding fuelwood from a thinning in mixed northern hardwoods. At a 400-foot skidding distance, the Holder ranked the highest in production at 1.67 cords per scheduled hour; skidding cost averaged $12.67 per cord. Values for the Forest Ant were 0.86 cord per scheduled hour at $12.86 per cord; for the Pasquali they were 0.69 cord at $18.12 per cord.
