Abstract
FERIC has been involved in the development of mobile rock crusher technology for the past six years. In November 1993, FERIC formed an advisory committee comprising contractors, forest companies, manufacturers, and funding agencies to establish the basic criteria for an "ideal" mobile crusher. The committee concluded that the crusher must be easy to transport, economical and adaptable to a machine that is common on forest operations. In cooperation with FERIC, FAHR Industries built the Forester C2000 based on the committee's recommendations. This small rock crusher, which mounts quickly on a front-end loader with a 3-m3 capacity, was then evaluated by FERIC. The Forester C2000 proved to be reliable and effective, with a travel speed of 300 m/h and production of up to 40m3 of crushed material per kilometer of windrow.

Abstract
The load-bearing capacity of forest roads is often reduced by excess water combined with harsh weather conditions. This decreases the reliability of these roads and has an impact on the cost and access to fiber. In order to overcome this challenge, the construction of feeder roads is one of the most used solutions. This technique involves shaping the road and allowing it to consolidate for a period of time to reduce its moisture content prior to the placement of granular materials. Although this practice is widespread, its effectiveness had never been quantified. With this in mind, FPInnovations, in collaboration with several members of the forest industry, evaluated the technical, financial and functional benefits of this practice.
Abstract
La capacité portante des chemins forestiers est souvent réduite par un excès d’eau associé à des conditions climatiques difficiles. Ceci diminue la fiabilité de ces routes et a un impact sur le coût et l’accès à la fibre. Afin de pallier ce défi, la construction des routes d’avance est l’une des solutions les plus utilisées. Cette technique consiste à faire la mise en forme de la route et à la laisser consolider pendant un certain temps pour diminuer sa teneur en humidité avant la mise en place des matériaux granulaires. Bien que cette pratique soit répandue, son efficacité n’avait jamais été quantifiée. C’est dans cette perspective que FPInnovations, en collaboration avec plusieurs membres de l’industrie forestière, a évalué les avantages techniques, financiers et fonctionnels de cette pratique.
