Analysis of truck weight modifications for a southern timber hauling operation

Analysis of truck weight modifications for a southern timber hauling operation

Southern Journal of Applied Forestry 14(3): 133-136

Load characteristics were compared for conventional timber haul trucks, and trucks and trailers modified through use of lighter-weight, but sometimes more expensive, components. The estimates of load weight were used to measure the economic potential of the modifications. Gross, net and tare mean weights of the modified vehicles were significantly greater than those of the conventional vehicles.
