The aim of the research was to determine the productivity of the URUS MIII cable system during transporting of Spruce timbers from the Turkey mountainuous selective forests of Spruce, Scotch pine and Beech. The research done place in the area of Artvin Forest Management. Cable system productivity was determined by the method of time study. The research shows the results of some working characteristics of the URUS MIII cable system, such as; transporting speed of carriage (loaded and unloaded), load volume, time consumptions of felling area, fuel consumptions, productivity of cable system and transporting distance.
