The time structure and the productivity of harvesting conifers was analysed with a cable crane Syncrofalke 3t in combination with the Woody 60 processor head. 130 useful cycles of skidding up the area Vitanje were recorded. Chronometric method for measuring time and assortments in the bark was used. Based on those measurements volume and weight of each load and also average load was calculated. It was discovered that production of assortments and productive time depend on pulling distance, weight of each load and also the number of items produced from each load. Productive and unproductive time for skidding and processing production of assortments which occur during production processes and potential delays in the cycle were also analysed. The effect of the cable crane and of the processor on the productive time was also compared.
