Wood stress simulators from Stoiber GmbH

The processing of damaged wood after a storm calls for precaution and technical expertise. A stress simulator (tree bending simulator) highlights frequently underestimated risks and is used by woodworkers.

With PEFC certification, many forest operations are committed to high standards of worker safety. Various cutting techniques – in particular of trees that are under stress – can be efficiently and practically performed using the stress simulator.


The machine can be set up by one person without additional tools. The tension spring-relieved folding platforms and the height-adjustable floor supports are permanently installed. In the transport position, the platforms are folded and fixed with an eccentric lock.
