Gunnarsson, Magnus, 2010. Effektivare röjningssätt med kedjeröjsågen?. First cycle, G2E. Skinnskatteberg: SLU, School for Forest Management



After the mandatory rules for clearing was removed in 1994, the clearing area has increased in Sweden. After the storms Gudrun and Per, the areas became planted with new plants, mainly spruce, but also other tree species. Storm areas are now being invaded by naturally rejuvenated birch in the tilling tracks. Since the birch often is initially growing faster than the spruce it is inhibiting the growth and is also damaging the spruce.
The purpose of this thesis is to study the new brush saw with chain and compare it with the conventional clearing saw, mainly in terms of performance and ergonomics. The results show that the new brush saw with chain is very good in almost all clearing operations compared to the conventional clearing saw. The best performance is done in the leafless stand when the dominating plants have a height of at least one meter.
