Summary

The short term productivity of a Harvestline yarder was assessed at three sites in South Eastern B.C. The Harvestline is a small mobile yarder offering improved safety and efficiency compared to conventional grapple yarders or tower yarding systems. No guylines and small size enables quick road changes, set up, demobilisation and easy transport The three studies provide a ``snapshot`` of productivity under specific operating conditions at the time of the assessment. It must be emphasized that operational factors such as time spent moving between sites and other working constraints have to be quantified to determine long-term machine utilization, performance and costs.
