Description

This guide provides cycle time and productivity information for harvesting equipment commonly used in Maine’s logging industry for partial harvests. Data were collected in terms of time consumption per work task. With these data, cycle time equations were developed. Productivity functions were developed using tree volumes. It is important to remember that productivity may vary from stand to stand due to differences in tree volume at the site level. Cycle time functions are independent of tree volume and will give fairly accurate predictions of time consumption per machine.
