Simlog's new Bulldozer Personal Simulator puts you at the
controls of a medium-sized bulldozer (also called "dozer", "tractor",
"crawler tractor", "track type tractor") in a typical construction site.
You can either use your own PC
or choose the convenience of
our PC bundle with the Simlog
software already installed, licensed, and ready to go in English,
Spanish or Portuguese.
Add a big screen display for
"life size" graphics, and quality speakers for the audio feedback.
Simlog even offers a vibration system
to enhance the simulation experience.
There are setup options to suit most
Now use multiple displays (or just one)
You can now use three forward-looking
big screen displays
to create a field of view of 180 degrees in front, plus one display behind.
(You can still use just one display, if space is limited.)
- to the left
- straight ahead
- to the right
And unique to Simlog, all you need is one off-the-shelf PC!
Many kinds of USB-ready simulator controls and mounting configurations
are available, including:
Please note that Simlog's hardware products are only sold for use with
Simlog's simulation software.
If you are a Simlog customer, then you may be able to re-use the
simulator controls that you already have.

There are seven "Simulation Modules" of increasing difficulty,
starting with Controls Familiarization and then progressing through
Backfilling 1 and 2,
Slot Dozing, and finally
Many different kinds of situations are presented, in order to address the
training needs of a wide variety of customers using different operational
practices. You can even use the keyboard function keys and mouse controls
during the simulation to change the point of view, to present views
from outside the cabin e.g. to the left/right and up above, to better
"understand" the simulated work.
Watch the sample videos to learn more!
Key "Performance Indicators" measure how quickly and how carefully
the simulated work is performed including execution time, collisions, and
criteria related to how well a trench is backfilled, is excavated, etc. With
more than 20 Performance Indicators in all, feedback is diagnostic,
instead of just a consolidated pass/fail score.
Simulation results are automatically saved, so trainees can progress at their
own pace without trainer supervision. To simplify the
record keeping, Simlog offers a database
product called Simulation Manager, and
the same database can be used with all of our
Simlog's Bulldozer simulation software can also be configured, in order
to simulate the behavior of a wide variety of bulldozers. For example, you can
use separate pedals for Decelerator and Brake, or just a single pedal that
combines both functions, to reproduce the different pedal arrangements found
in real bulldozers. You can also activate (or not) "counter rotation" so that
when making a tight turn, the two crawler tracks will turn in opposite
directions (or not), since this kind of control is typical of some, but not
all, bulldozers. You can even set the blade functions to be faster or slower!
Low Total Cost of Ownership
Real affordability, that's how Simlog sets the
standard in cost-effective simulation.
The fact is, training with our Personal Simulator is a fraction of the cost of
training with a real bulldozer, especially
considering that even small accidents due to operator inexperience can mean
thousands of dollars in replacement parts and downtime.
And the purchase of the simulation software license is a
one time fee,
to keep the total cost of ownership as low as possible, with no
restrictions on the number of people that you can train.
Quick Return on Investment
The software license, a one time fee,
will pay for itself when you train just a handful of new operators.
How? Consider the rising costs of putting a real bulldozer to work
with a qualified instructor, the
damage and downtime that inexperience can cause, and finally
the risk of possible injury.
That's why it just makes sense to
prepare new operators with Simlog help.
