Technical progress has led to a continual improvement in the competitiveness of harvesting measures. The technical realisation of specially designed tracked platforms gives us a steep terrain harvesting solution with high innovation potential. The few steep terrain studies on tracked harvesters to date focus primarily on clear-cutting with limited variability in the defining productivity parameters. No investigations quantify the effect of terrain slope to productivity. The aim of the present investigation is to quantify the terrain and stand parameters on the productivity of track-based harvesters in thinning operations. Productivity models should be derived based on empirical studies. The models are limited to the track-based harvesters Impex 1650 Königstiger, Neuson 11002 HV and MHT Robin.
