    Wheel Loader Simulator

    Provide operators with the coordination and earthmoving techniques they need to master safe, efficient operations

Wheel Loader Simulator

The Wheel Loader Simulator Training Pack is an immersive training tool for loader operations. It incorporates CM Labs’ advanced soil simulation, which reproduces bucket/ground interactions with the highest fidelity available today.

Wheel loader operators learn safe and efficient techniques in an open environment with multiple possible solutions, leaving them to exercise skills, creativity, and good judgment, just as in the real world.

Advanced Earthmoving Techniques

The Wheel Loader Training Pack’s advanced soil simulation allows operators to learn complex earthmoving techniques while prioritizing safety in their work zone.

Trainees learn how to ensure a clear driving path for dump trucks, in order to prevent vehicle turnovers. The training pack also includes a Grade Quality Sensor (GQS) that provides real-time visual feedback to the operator when digging or leveling.

Unique Wheel Loader Training Pack Features

During training exercises, operator can change tools depending on the task they need to accomplish. This requires trainees to learn the proper usage of the wheel loader’s quick coupler, in order to avoid accidental release of the bucket during operations, which can lead to life-changing situations on the worksite.

Wheel loader instability due to high loads or hard braking is also reproduced inside the Wheel Loader Training Pack, and replicates the real-life consequences of rough operations on equipment behaviour.

Track Wheel Loader Operators Performance

The Wheel Loader Training Pack tracks all operating performance metrics during training exercises, and rolls them up into a single score that updates in real time. You can customize the scoring system to take your most important operating criteria into consideration, 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 Wheel Loader Pack incorporates Smart Training Technology™. That’s why it delivers the most transferable operator skills anywhere, outside of the real equipment.

Smart Training Technology is comprised of CM Labs’ proprietary and patented algorithms, and ensures precision engineering of the simulated equipment inside the Wheel Loader Training Pack, including:

  • Hydraulics system, transmission, and tire deflection
  • Bucket forces, digging, trenching, and loading
  • Soil digging and dumping, powered by decades of research into earthmoving simulation
