Résumé
Forestry machines are constantly evolving thanks to technological advancements. As these changes happen, our best practices must change accordingly to ensure optimal safe production and efficiency. For many years, we have used various equipment to bring wood to the road, such as cable yarders, hoe chuckers, and even forwarders on semi-steep ground without the assistance of cable winches. However, there is an increasing need for forwarders to follow harvesters on steeper ground with short pitches. Logging on steeper ground with shorter slopes using winch-assist harvester/forwarder tandems has been taking place in several European countries, Australia, and South America for more than a decade. This manual contains techniques and procedures that will take you through every stage of the forwarding process, including planning, loading, travelling, handling the boom, and unloading.

Résumé
Machines and equipment are constantly evolving thanks to technological advancements. As these changes happen, our best practices must change accordingly to ensure optimal safe production and efficiency. For many years we used tracked carrier harvesters with tilting platforms that are able to perform well in semi-steep ground without the assistance of cable winches. However, as harvesting has continued to take place on steeper ground with short pitches, large cable yarders have not been economical to use and the slopes too steep for normal conventional steep ground harvesters. Conventional type harvesters with an ability to work steeper ground with shorter slopes were needed in B.C. This style of logging has been taking place in several European countries, Australia, and New Zealand for a number of years, with equipment manufacturers from around the world now having or developing machines with computerized cable winches that work with existing conventional harvesters in such a way that they can safely perform on steeper ground. Wheeled machines are well suited as winch-assist winches as they have better contact with the ground, tend to burn less fuel, and are lighter, quieter, and smaller, creating less ground disturbance. Keeping these machines productive and cost- efficient is achieved by using best practice operating techniques along with appropriate, daily maintenance.
