2007 Thunderbird TTY70 tower yarder. Work In Progress
About this creation
This is our 2007 Thunderbird TTY70 tower yarder. It is used to pull the logs up the mountain to be bucked, delimbed, and loaded. It has an 80' tall yarder tower and dual winches. the skyline cable is anchored either to one of our bulldozers or a spar tree downslope. I built this version in 2008, a modification of the original 2007 model. Now it is receiving a full overhaul, with new decals, a new yarder tower, new paint, a larger engine, and modified track assembly. I am awaiting parts to re-color the bottom plates. I have already re-colored the cab assembly, center engine assembly, and rear engine compartment.
