[Archive] Timber extraction by light agricultural tractor

Lead Author: J.W. Barraclough

Home publication [Archive] Timber extraction by light agricultural tractor

There are real advantages in using the same tractor for nursery work, ride mowing and extraction. Full utilisation of the tractor means low machine costs, fewer stores and easier maintenance. This booklet describes how, in Thetford Forest, the same light agricultural tractors which are used for forest nursery work and forest ride mowing are used also for the extraction of produce from thinning and clear felling. The implements used with the tractor are cheap, and mostly blacksmith-made. They are good examples of the simple and efficient devices which can be evolved by the local staff concerned with the job.
