Koehring-Waterous has developed a stump area pulpwood harvesting machine which promises to make a major reduction in the labor content and cost of pulpwood.
This one operator machine fells, limbs, tops, bucks, forwards, and truck loads its seven cord load of 8 ft pulpwood in less than 2 hr.
Some keys to its successful operation are: a large, articulated, rubber tired vehicle; a vertical, automatic tree processing tower; a unique log handling and storage method; extensive use of oil hydraulics; and design for reliability in woods.
