The player has to handle the real big machinery. He takes control of different huge vehicles such as the Harvester, which cuts and debranches every tree within a few seconds.
Afterwards the dragger pulls the trees out of the woods into the sawmill where the forest giants are reduced to small pieces of wood. When the sawmill has finished its work, the player entrains the produced logs onto a trucks using the heavy crane.
A lot of work is to be done in the woods. The Woodcutter Simulator 2011 challenges the player through various tasks which must be solved partially within a fixed amount of time.
Once all tasks of a mission are finished, the player can access the map anytime to chop and saw as he desires in the "free game" mode.
