This report, prepared under contract to the Canadian Forestry Service (CFS), presents the results of a one-year trial of a skidder equipped with high-flotation tires. Experience with high-flotation (HF) tires in eastern Canada has already demonstrated their benefits compared with conventional tires. The intent of this trial was to evaluate the feasibility of yarding coastal sites with skidders equipped with HF tires. A concurrent study funded by the British Columbia Ministry of Forests and the CFS evaluated the site impact of the HF skidder.
