Abstract
Since the cost of fuel is an important factor in the use of off-road equipment, it is to the advantage of every machine owner to make the most of this necessary expense. Certain work habits and operational factors influence fuel consumption. Recent trials conducted by FPInnovations researchers have explored some ways to improve fuel intensity and measure the savings.
Abstract
Puisque le coût du carburant est un facteur important dans l’utilisation des équipements hors route, il est à l’avantage de tout propriétaire de machine de tirer le maximum de cette dépense nécessaire. Certaines habitudes de travail et facteurs opérationnels ont une influence sur la consommation de carburant. De récents essais menés par les chercheurs de FPInnovations ont permis d’explorer certaines pistes d’amélioration de l’intensité énergétique et de mesurer les économies.

Abstract
The objective of this study was to assess the potential for downsizing skidder requirements on soft ground through the use of high-flotation tires. The test was designed to compare the relative performance of a 90-kw skidder with conventional tires and chains to that of a 67-kw skidder equipped with high-flotation tires. The comparison criteria were short-and long-term productivity, fuel consumption, ground disturbance and operating costs. The trial was performed in the Abitibi region of Quebec under contract to the Ministère de l'Énergie et des ressources du Québec.

Abstract
With the breakthrough of information technology in forestry practices are bound to evolve very rapidly due to, among other things, GPS technology. Often represented by a black box inside the cab, a GPS equipped with sensors can serve as a tracker, a simple, economical and fast tool for identifying the areas treated and the productivity of the machinery under different conditions.
Abstract
Avec la percée de l’informatique en forêt, les pratiques forestières sont appelées à évoluer très rapidement en raison, entre autres, de la technologie GPS. Souvent représenté par une boîte noire à l’intérieur de la cabine, un GPS équipé de capteurs peut servir de pisteur, un outil simple, économique et rapide pour l’identification des superficies traitées et de la productivité de la machinerie dans différentes conditions.

Abstract
The Gaspé Peninsula presents several particularities that are manifested even at the level of the ground conditions after cutting. These are characterized by a large quantity of logging residue, high stumps, numerous residual trees high stumps, numerous residual trees, strong competition and competition and steep terrain making site preparation operations making site preparation operations difficult. A study conducted by FPInnovations in the summer of 2018 resulted in the development a decision grid, adapted to the conditions encountered in the conditions encountered in the Gaspé Peninsula, allowing the identification of the best preparation technique based on the best cost per microsite ratio.
Abstract
La Gaspésie présente plusieurs particularités qui se manifestent même au niveau des conditions de terrain après coupe. Cellesci sont caractérisées par une grande quantité de résidus de coupe, des souches hautes, de nombreux arbres résiduels, une forte compétition et des terrains escarpés rendant les opérations de préparation de terrain diffi ciles. Une étude menée par FPInnovations à l’été 2018 a permis de développer une grille décisionnelle, adaptée aux conditions rencontrées en Gaspésie, permettant d’identifi er la meilleure technique de préparation de terrain en fonction du meilleur rapport coût par microsite.

Abstract
Obtaining accurate log lengths on a continuous basis with a harvester is imperative to limit losses in fiber volume and value to the mill. However, scaling errors are common and their causes vary. In its work on different scaling devices, FERIC has identified the factors that can cause errors in log scaling FERIC has identified the factors that can cause log measurement errors and has proposed ways to correct them. The most important of these is the regular calibration of the measurement device.
Abstract
Obtenir des longueurs de billes précises de façon continue avec une abatteuse-façonneuse est impératif pour limiter les pertes en volume de fibre et en valeur à l’usine. Or, les erreurs de mesurage sont fréquentes et leurs causes diverses. Dans ses travaux portant sur différents dispositifs de mesurage, FERIC a mis en évidence les facteurs susceptibles de causer des erreurs dans le mesurage des billes et a proposé des moyens d’y remédier dont le plus important est le calibrage régulier du dispositif de mesurage.
