Cat® Simulators New Backhoe Loader System Trains Construction Operators Safely and Efficiently

Peoria, Ill.— Simformotion™ LLC – a leader in heavy equipment simulator training solutions – announces the release of the new Cat® Simulators Backhoe Loader System.

Set in a construction environment, the system teaches students and operators how to work a Backhoe Loader (BHL) from the machine inspection to driving, braking, trenching, lifting and much more. Correct operation leads to increased safety, production and cost savings. Simulation is a safe alternative to using actual machines for heavy equipment operator training. Learners can train anytime and anywhere using simulators — no need to take a costly machine out of production, worry about weather, or most importantly, worry about the safety of the operator.

“The new Backhoe Loader simulator rounds out the family of construction models in the Cat Simulators line. It’s a versatile machine and our team has worked closely with the operator experts at Caterpillar to develop every exercise. No matter where your worksite is in the world, if you train on a Cat Simulators system, you can be assured that your students and operators are learning exactly the same techniques as every other Cat operator,” says Renee Gorrell, Vice President of Simformotion.

Cat® Simulators new Backhoe Loader system trains students and operators with authentic Cat controls and exercises developed with Caterpillar experts.

The BHL operator training simulator is available in multiple languages and includes a method to record and report the results of simulation sessions, comparing the performance to Caterpillar benchmarks. Authentic Cat controls, motion system, exclusive Walkaround training and available curriculum make the package unique to Cat Simulators. For even more training value, add VR Edition. With the VR headset, users experience a larger view of the environment with greater depth perception. Whether you want to add BHL training to a school program or at a construction site, the simulator is portable and easy to move from a classroom to a trailer. Simulators convert from one model to another using the same base unit. Save space and cross train on more machines with conversion kits.

In addition to the new BHL system, Cat Simulators are available in many other models for the construction, mining and forestry industries. Visit for more information.
