Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the productivity of the Gantner cable crane during extraction of Spruce timber from mixed stand of Oriental spruce, Scots pine and Oriental beech in North Eastern Turkey. Cable crane productivity is determined by using the methods of work and time study. The research results implies that some working characteristics of the Gantner cable crane such as extraction distance, speed of the carriage (loaded and unloaded), load volume, time consumption of handling operations and fuel consumption have an important impact on productivity of the cable crane.
