PIERCE YARDING PACKAGES:
QUALITY WITHOUT COMPROMISE.

Pierce yarding packages are built to work with loaders and excavators, without compromising the primary functionality and performance of your machine. More economical than a traditional dedicated yarder, our yarding packages offer you more flexibility for less investment. They’re ideal as your steep slope cabled machine…everything from shotgun (uphill) and highlead (downhill) log retrieval in large second growth timber, to thinning applications and picking corners. And with a smaller machine profile than most dedicated yarders, Pierce yarding packages make it easy for you to avoid excessive transportation costs, while saving on fuel and maintenance.
