Sažetak

The objective of this study was to evaluate the productivity and costs of two Spanish forwarders, models Dingo AD-8468 and AD-2452, in the hauling of bundles of residues after Eucalyptus globulus clear cuts on steep terrain in Northern Spain. In addition, various models to predict time consumption for the main work elements and productivity were fitted including several independent variables previously selected using stepwise regression. Finally, the models explain between 83% and 97% of variability. Since the equations are based on simple variables (depending on each individual equation this was either velocity empty and loaded, slope loading, distance empty/loading/loaded or load per cycle), they will be a helpful and easy to use tool to assist in forest management planning. Productivity was 6.75 odt/PMH for the Dingo AD-8468 forwarder and 11.56 odt/PMH for the Dingo AD-2452. Cost per tonne for the Dingo AD-8468 was 6.77 €/odt compared to 3.94 €/odt for the Dingo AD-2452.
