    Backhoe Simulator

    The backhoe simulator provide operators with the coordination and digging techniques they need to master safe, efficient operations.

Backhoe Simulator

The Backhoe Simulator Training Pack highlights the versatility of this “jack of all trades,” with exercises designed to teach operators the full potential of the equipment. It’s the only solution on the market that is capable of simulating a backhoe’s backlash and instability.

Thanks to this capability, the Backhoe Simulator Training Pack is ideal for teaching novices critical transferable skills, such as how to leverage backhoe flexibility, and control its center of gravity for maximal efficiency on the job site.

Backhoe Training Pack
Open Training Environment

The Backhoe Training Pack immerse trainees in a completely open training environment. Operators must use their own judgment to solve operating challenges, switching between the bucket and loader at any time.

The result is more effective training. Operators learn to find proactive solutions on the virtual worksite, which translates into real-world decision-making skills.

Unique Backhoe Features

With the Backhoe Simulator Training Pack, trainees learn how to conduct careful, methodical operations, thanks to the simulated looseness in the machine’s linkage, which replicates that of the real backhoe.

The training pack also simulates changes in stability and traction as tires are placed under stress by rapid movements or heavy loads — and the simulated backhoe can even tip as a result of instability. This gives trainees the opportunity to learn from their mistakes, without the risk of damaging equipment or injuring themselves.

Track Backhoe Operator Performance

The Backhoe Simulator Training Pack gives trainers objective insight into operator performance and abilities. It measures operator performance metrics such as:

  • Collisions and shock loads
  • Fuel consumption, cycle time, and idle time
  • Material excavated per bucket load and in total

Smart Training Technology

The Backhoe Training Pack incorporates Smart Training Technology™. That’s why it delivers the most transferable operator skills anywhere, outside of the real equipment.

It’s comprised of CM Labs’ proprietary and patented algorithms, and ensures precision engineering of the simulated equipment inside the Backhoe Training Pack. The detailed simulation includes:

  • Simulated backlash
  • Hydraulics system
  • Fully simulated transmission
  • Award winning earthmoving simulation
  • Bucket forces, digging, trenching, and loading
