As the business expanded, so did the Stress Outdoor® definition of “off-road.” Taking advantage of our very broad and deep foundation of engineering and testing experience in the ATV market, Stress Outdoor® focused attention to the needs of the turf market, specifically, Zero-Turn Radius (ZTR) mower development. Our strategy zeroed in on the key development needs of mower deck development and mower life.
Stress Outdoor® developed a number of tools for manufacturers in that industry including mower deck flow dynamics, on-board machine performance instrumentation and data acquisition systems, and a low speed dynamometer to quantify power system performance.
Leveraging the expanding foundation in off-road vehicle engineering and testing, Stress Outdoor® has continued to expand services to other interesting off-road applications such as:
specialized cranes (Pitmann crane)
international vehicle testing support
light rail life extension services applications to several major US cities
freight and passenger rail for the federal government.
