Summary: With the increase in the traffic intensity and the overall weight of the timber transport systems the requirements for braking efficiency and safety increase. Traction-speed and braking properties of forest transport machines are interconnected. The higher the speed of a vehicle, the more effective its braking properties should be. Consequently, traffic safety and performance depend to a greater degree on the braking properties of a forest transport machine. This study is focused on the influence of weight and specific operating conditions in the timber industry complex on the breaking path length of a hauling truck through the example of the MAZ 5434 with a timber drag GKB-9362. The experimental results on a log truck braking on a timber road with a transitional type of surface are presented.
