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
In an effort to improve the flotation and mobility of off-road vehicles on the low strength soils which underlie large portions of the forest area throughout Canada, FERIC initiated a search for a dependable high-flotation tire which could be used to improve the performance of existing logging machines. This report describes the four-year testing and development program, and the performance of skidders equipped with wide, high flotation tires on both soft and on steep terrain. The advantages and disadvantages of these tires are summarized.
