I always wanted a zig zag yarder:


Back in the day I ordered two of those yarder plans from the gov.
Somewhere 20 miles south of Lake Erie.

GEHL 5624 skid steer, IHC 300 Utility, Timberjack 225D, Burg Bandsaw mill, Steiger Bearcat II

I think it has to do with who is cutting.  Half our loggers are full time farmers who log in winter with 3PH winches.   They probably arent capable .   and theyre also a large segment of the land owners.  No sense clearing a patch you cant hay or till.

I dug out the information I have.
I found the two projects sponsored by the Vermont Department Of Parks and Recreation. Vermont cable yarder project. One is not dated and mostly describes machines and configurations.The other is CABLE HARVESTING SYSTEMS FOR SMALL TIMBER  by:E.Gerry Hawks, 1979.
I worked with Hawks system.  Primitive but it showed how efficient yarders were when configured to be so.
I feel that west coast yarding is like tuna fishing and east  New England yarding is like fly fishing with 12,000 ft of line.
