Yarding Cost for the Koller K300 Cable Yarder: Results from Field Trials and Simulations
Abstract:This paper describes results from field studies and simulation that can be used to estimate the yarding cost for the Koller K300 cable yarder. Yarding costs can be estimated for clearcuts and light and heavy thinnings in eastern hardwoods. Yarding costs can be estimated with a handheld calculator, or the data can be incorporated into stump-to-mill desktop PC and mainframe computer programs. The results can be a valuable tool for loggers, managers, and planners considering the use of small-to medium-size cable yarders to extract timber from eastern hardwood stands. North. J. Appl. For. 13(4):5-9.
