In this study, forest road construction techniques, environm ental damages, cross sections and productivity by using hydraulic excavator vvere investigated in forested lands in Antalya region of Turkey. Besides, cross sections of excavator vvere com pared according to gradient. Differences of fill-slope and cut-slope in the cross sections were determ ined. M axim um length of fili slope for excavator was found to be 17 m on 80% slope gradient. The cost of excavator vvas calculated as $21.8 per meter. Productivity of excavator vvas found as 105.8 m3/h.
