With increased complexity of new equipment, introduced to the west coast logging industry, it has become necessary to reevaluate machinery control techniques. Proper coordination of clutch and brake application is very critical. The old methods of control are not adequate.
Through the use of carefully designed logic systems, maintenance-free programmed controls may be produced to completely regulate all operating characteristics of the machines The operator will need little training. His work will be simplified and he will be required to make fewer decisions.
