Cut-to-length operators learn in the woods on the job

Good harvester - forwarder operators are hard to find, however. Most contractors working cut-to-length processors in the woods learn on the job.

But it’s not something you can learn overnight. George Merrill from Maine, USA, said "it took him a year and a half to get proficient with his first processor".

“It’s just paying attention,” he said.

But it’s paying attention to many things at once. The trail, the stranding trees, working the joysticks, making sure the computer that cuts the logs to length is doing so accurately.
