Specialized Equipment


The Timbco Feller Buncher, equipped with a rotary blade, severs each tree at the base then grabs it and places it in a pile called a "doodle".

Doodles are then skidded with rubber tired skidders. This skidder is unusual in that it has boom mounted grapples. Having the grapple on a hydraulic boom improved maneuverability when skidding the doodles which reduced the damage to trees not cut. On steeper ground, where the slope is greater than 35 percent, a cable yarder was used.
