英文摘要: In mechanized ground-based forestry, machines operate on rough soils that, ideally, should remain unaffected by the operation. This implies small (that is, light) loads and careful driving are required. However, economical rationality implies large loads and high speeds. Recently, the concept of adding a trailer to a conventional forwarder has been revived, with the objective of addressing both concerns, and fitting into the current, mechanized, cut-to-length system. Here we present the theoretical benefits of the forwarder-trailer concept compared to conventional forwarding for final-felling operations. The analysis addresses the trailer potential in terms of break-even extraction distances under different scenarios, and estimates the abundance of favorable conditions (as a percentage of...
