If the distance between the above two mentioned cells exceeds the technological length of a skyline system, the layout of the skyline yarding path cannot be calculated.

Production rates and costs for yarding by cable, balloon and heli­ copter compared for clearcuttings and partial cuttings. Moreover, design and spacing of yarding corridors affect system performance and costs, due to time spent on rigging activities and the direct consequences of the layout on the yarding procedures.

Compared to other small-cable yarding machines, the HAM may be an efficient in system productivity and cost within the variety of small-scale cable yarding operations previously studied.

New techniques have recently appeared that can extend the advantages of grapple yarding to fast-growing plantations. The most promising technique consists of an excavator-base un-guyed yarder equipped with new radio-controlled grapple carriages, fed by another excavator stationed on the cut-over.

This system is very productive, avoids in-stand traffic, and removes operators from positions of. Economics and design of a radio-controlled skyline yarding system () ().jpg 2, × 3,; KB Economics and design of a radio-controlled skyline yarding system () ().jpg 2, × 4,; MB.

This paper reports the results of some preliminary measurements taken to test this assumption. Similar studies, Virgil Binkley. Economics and design of a radio-controlled skyline yarding system.

Economics and design of a radio-controlled skyline yarding system. These included three-drum-systems (skyline, mainline and back-haul line), closed-ring circuits (endless loop) systems for sled winches (winches mounted on a sled-like structure and generally used in long-distance cable yarding), extended towers, artificial supports, self-propelled carriages, twin-carriage systems (Studier and Binkley As part of the skyline cable logging system, this purpose-built machine rides on suspended cables into the harvest area to retrieve logs and lift them to the roadside log landing.

This yarder has been called a “boy toy” by some, but it did complete its grown-up job of yarding about 10 cords of wood. So it is not a toy but a Mini-Skyline Yarder, a scaled-down version (about 1/10 size) of a commercial-size timber yarder. Cost.

The cost was also small. A standing skyline in a gravity-fed (shotgun) configuration with a motorized carriage is the most common yarding system used in the region.

Carriage outhaul works by gravity. The slackline configuration requires a haulback, using a three-drum yarder, with the additional line. A great deal of research in Italy has been directed toward field measurement of cable tension in cable yarding systems in order to facilitate initial tensioning of unloaded skylines or to provide means for avoiding overloading.

Unfortunately, at present many cableway extraction systems are just based on the operators' experience and no calculation of the tension in skylines is carried out. This. System as defined by the number of ropes * One-rope system. Practically only used with self-propelled carriages (i.e.

Woodliner) * Two-rope system (skyline and mainline) Practically used as gravity aided uphill and downhill harvesting. * Three-rope system (skyline, mainline and haulback-line) Practically used for downhill or all-terrain logging.

Figure. Skyline system with slackpulling carriage. Abstract Introduction A carriage used in skyline logging is a wheeled device that rides back and forth on the skyline and from which logs are suspended (Mifflin and Lysons ).

Carriages are used on standing, live, and running skylines. An example of a skyline system is shown in Figure. Automating techniques are divided roughly into "automatic traveling" and "automatic unloading" techniques.

For achieving automatic carriage motion and for making the carriage stop at a target location, we constructed a prototype odometer system to measure the The value is a carriage return surrounded by pipes (i.

NET Programmer's Cookbook [Book]. The LIFTLINER radio-controlled skyline carriage is a safe and highly productive solution to haul-back cable-yarding. With the new radio-controlled carriage LIFTLINER it is possible to operate the hoist and travel functions simultaneously. This gives a very smooth and efficient operation with minimal waiting time at either end.

TLD Gauthier Inc. Features of the cable yarding system manufactured by TLD Gauthier Inc. include minimal capital investment, low production costs, easy operation, high mobility, optimum stability and maximum safety. The self-propelled carriage is equipped with a TLC telecarrier and a hp diesel engine with a dropline length of 75 metres, a travelling speed of metres/second, as well.

Clearcuts with Eternal Yarding Distances (EYD) of less then feet will be logged using the Highlead system for both uphill and downhill yarding. Standing skyline system is the preferred system for longer spans due to line control.

For the same reason, it is also selected for partial cuts or for downhill yarding with EYD greater than feet. Skyline DIY Instructions & Support. Skyline makes over 20 different exhibit systems, including pop ups, banner stands, panel systems, fabric structures, truss and other structural, custom modular exhibit systems.

The overall objectives were to develop productivity and cost prediction models for common harvesting systems operating in second-growth stands and to design a framework for a model to select the best harvesting system for a given area based on costs.

The Workbook includes a database of widely used yarder and carriage combinations which can be applied to the user’s skyline profile to model configurations for skyline yarding objectives.

We can do the whole job: design, engineering, fabrication, coordination with the architect/builder and installation.Consequently, erosion problems are reduced to a minimum. Yarding can be upslope or downslope, reportedly over distances up to 6, feet.
