    The findings suggest that there may be a substantial cost to accommodate some of these potential truck configurations on the existing roadway network. For instance, to upgrade the entire U.

    Equipment life-cycle cost analysis (LCCA) is typically used as one component of the equipment fleet management process and allows the fleet manager to make equipment repair, replacement, and retention decisions on the basis of a given piece of equipment’s economic life.

rary access. Proper location and construction of roads will provide for safety, longer operating periods, lower maintenance and operating costs, and minimal impacts to forest resources.

Servicing as many acres of forest with as few roads as possible is a sound method of reducing impacts to forest resources from road construction.

One illustration of a breakeven analysis would be to compare two methods of road construction for a road that involves a limited amount of cut-and-fill earthwork. It would be possible to do the earthwork by hand or by bulldozer. If the manual method were adopted, the fixed costs.

Increased section expense deduction dollar limits. road geometry so that the most cost-effective roads can be buitt. How truck speeds relate to road design is assumed to depend either on driver behavior or truck performance.

The capacity and cost per day for a chip truck is similar to that of a log truck. A reasonable estimate for hauling chips is therefore the same as for logs.

Most logging roads were not designed to accommodate chip trucks, how-ever. In many situations, especially where turning radius is tight or when low clearance will cause the chip truck to.
