A harvesting system for low ground strength soils (ground bearing capacity soils II and III) at Acadia Forest Products Ltd.
University of New Brunswick
A theoretical analysis applied to harvesting systems indicates that a modified conventional, low risk harvesting system is well suited to work on ground capacity II and III sites at Acadia Forest Products, in New Brunswick. The use of different high flotation tires (e.g. Good Year, United Tire and Rolligon) on skidders is examined and proposed as an element of a Feller-Buncher-- Skidder--Delimber harvesting system.
