    Harvester Simulator

    Detailed simulation of the harvesting cycle

Harvester Simulator

The Harvester Simulator Training Pack was designed in collaboration with Tigercat and teaches students how to safely manage the harvesting cycle on different terrains. It helps reduce the training burden on seasoned operators by ensuring a higher level of readiness for the field.

Trainees obtain a realistic lens into the actual work thanks to an immersive training environment fully equipped with multiple tree species, as well as night-time operations and different weather conditions like fog, rain, or snow.

Harvester Simulator Training Pack Features

Industry Based Curriculum

With the Harvester Simulator, students progress through an industry-approved curriculum that was developed in consultation with forestry and logging training schools. The harvesting cycles are simulated in detail so operators learn to proficiently control the felling direction, delimb a tree, and cut-to-length based on requested specs. Exercises include:

Track Harvester Operator Performance

The Harvester Simulator Training Pack enables objective operator assessment with 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™

Through CM Labs’ Smart Training Technology™, everything from the Harvester’s hydraulics system, engine behavior, knuckle boom swing as well as movement of the harvester head are accurately replicated. Smart Training Technology is comprised of CM Labs’ proprietary and patented algorithms, and ensures precision engineering of the simulated equipment. That’s why it delivers the most transferable operator skills anywhere, outside of the real equipment. Other detailed simulation includes:

A Complete Training Solution

With the Harvester and Forwarder Simulator Training Packs training organizations can provide comprehensive education for forestry operations, as well as training for road work with CM Labs’ Earthmoving Training Packs. The Harvester Training Pack runs on the desktop Vortex Edge Plus and the motion-enabled Vortex Edge Max.
