ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Original caption reads in part: "J.L Hurd, logging superintendent, said he liked the TD-18 in selective logging because of its flexibility, ability to work up steep hillsides, and its greater amount of power for its size, or, as the engineers expressed it, its more advantageous power to weight ratio. The tractor, a wide tread TD-18, was equipped with Carco winch and 100 feet of 1-inch cable and Isaacson Trac-Dozer and cab. The tractor was skidding logs an average of 3000 feet to the company's own logging railroad which is 12 miles long. It was worked in two shifts, one of 8 hours and the other 11 hours. In the 11-hour shift it was moving an average 40,000 feet. Fuel consumption was 2.5 gallons per hour. The company operates a big long log mill in National which will handle logs up to 140 feet in length. Its mill pond has a capacity of one and a half million feet. The Pacific National Lumber Company's main office is in Tacoma, Washington."
