    Description

    An 18-horsepower skyline yarder was studied on a steep slope clearcut, yarding small hardwood trees uphill for fuelwood. Yarding cycle characteristics sampled include: total cycle time including delays, 5.20 minutes; yarding distance, 208 feet (350 feet maximum); turn volume, 11.6 cubic feet (24 cubic feet maximum); pieces per turn, 2.3. Cost analysis shows yarding costs will range from $18.00 to $36.00 per cunit, depending upon crew efficiency and yarding conditions.
