Cat® Simulators SimLite Compact Track Loader
Set in a busy construction environment, the new Cat® Simulators SimLite Compact Track Loader teaches learners how to operate a Compact Track Loader using authentic Cat controls. The portable station allows instructors and learners to utilize operator training inside the classroom or off-site locations and includes exercises that teach learners how to conduct a walkaround inspection, maneuver the machine, use the jackhammer and blade box attachments and more.
“Companies are struggling to hire skilled workers. Training makes a difference. The Compact Track Loader is a versatile machine, so we created a versatile simulator that trains learners using authentic Cat® controls and teaches applications found on real-world jobsites. Training programs can integrate the system into their formal classroom programs or take it to worksites for application training,” says Simformotion CEO, Lara Aaron. Read more.
