What’s a yoder?

In this winter’s cable thinning harvest at the Corvallis Forest, B&G Logging of Philomath used a Yoder as the log yarding tool of choice. Yoder = Yarder + Loader. Its a track-mounted log loader with cable yarding spools and pulleys added. It’s wide tracks don’t require time-consuming guy-wire rigging to keep it steady. B&G’s owner Levi Beelart says its the perfect tool for short corridors with smaller logs, allowing careful thinning on steep terrain at a economical cost.
