The following pics were taken by Mike Crouse, publisher of Logger's World Magazine. If you are not familiar with this publication, it is a good one. Mike and his crew do a terrific job of chronicling logging activities in the Northwest. For more information on Logger's World, check out their web site: www.loggersworld.com.
These logs have been limbed and bucked with this machine.
Logs are processed efficiently with these machines.
Rollers move the log, which removes the limbs. A saw (which is in the housing) then cuts the log to the best length.
Why pack a chain saw when you can ride on one? The bar and chain is powered by a hydraulic motor.
Look at that blue sky. This is the kind of day that makes a logger glad he works outdoors.
