Description: The Morbark mobile barker was used to remove bark from 4-foot (1,3 m.)logs in the Green River woods. We see a logger feeding a log in the barker; a second man clears the barker and a third piles the logs. This machine did not work properly and was unstable. Loggers used it only during the summer of 1952.
