Used Yarders and more
When you operate with a logging yarder, it means that trees and other materials will only briefly touch the forest floor during transportation, resulting in a minimal impact on the environment as you get the job done in a precise way that skidders and forwarders simply cannot.

Selecting the Best Logging Yarder For You: The Basics
The new and used logging equipment for sale at My Little Salesman can handle all of your forestry needs – and at a great price. You’ll find everything from Caterpillar to Thunderbird yarders for sale, but choosing the right logging yarder ultimately depends on the logistics of your operation. A swing yarder is highly mobile and can efficiently move from site to site, provided that the area is relatively flat. For steeper slopes, however, a stationary tower logging yarder lets you to transport materials with even less of a disturbance to sensitive ecosystems.
You will typically need at least three drums to properly pull the payload to its destination, though a logging yarder can have as little as one drum, and as many as four. Either way, your logging yarder will need plenty of horsepower (90 HP is on the low end, while 700 HP is considered top speed), and at least one diesel engine, if not two. You need to choose between a swing boom or a fixed boom – swing booms can cut down on overall movement adjustments, but they are usually shorter than a fixed boom. Hopefully this brief refresher’s course will help you find the right logging equipment for sale.
