Forwarder Simulator

The Forwarder Simulator Training Pack was developed in collaboration with industry experts and allows trainees to experience challenging scenarios in a completely immersive environment.

Every simulated machine component is backed by precise engineering specifications provided by Tigercat Industries to ensure realistic behavior and maximum training value. Students gain exposure to the largest and widest variety of simulated terrains on the market, and as a result, transition faster and more effectively to the real equipment.

Forwarder Simulator Training Pack Features

Industry Based Curriculum

From control familiarization to advanced techniques, trainees progress through an industry-approved curriculum and learn how to operate the vehicle, crane, and grapple, as well as how to manipulate logs. Exercises provide students with the experience of driving off road, over rocks, slopes and tree stumps as well as exposure to night-time operations and different weather conditions. The Forwarder Simulator Training Pack’s curriculum was developed through consultations with forestry and logging training schools to ensure students develop the right skills and techniques for safe and productive operations. Exercises include:

Track Forwarder Operator Performance

The Forwarder Simulator Training Pack includes built-in performance metrics that can be customized and rolled up into a single score that updates in real time. Metrics include:

Smart Training Technology™

The Forwarder Simulator Training Pack is powered by Smart Training Technology™ which means that all machine components behave as they do on the actual equipment. Smart Training Technology is comprised of CM Labs’ proprietary and patented algorithms, and ensures precision engineering of the simulated equipment inside the Forwarder Training Pack. This delivers the most transferable skills anywhere, outside of the real equipment and gives trainees an exceptional opportunity to truly learn by feel. The detailed simulation includes:
