Now even better! Version 2.5 of Simlog's award-winning product brings significant improvements to the 3D modeling, simulated physics, graphics, and Simulation Modules to provide even more operator training help!


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, French, 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 every budget.


Simulator Controls

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. To learn more, please contact Simlog.

Software Description

The simulation software puts you at the controls of a modern hydraulic excavator at work in a typical construction site with both simulated dirt and large boulders, in interaction with an articulated dump truck. Both SAE and Backhoe-Loader joystick patterns are available, and changing the point of view during the simulation is easy with joystick buttons, keyboard function keys and mouse controls.


Version 2.5 features twelve "Simulation Modules", as follows:

  • Controls Familiarization
  • Excavator Positioning
  • Raking the Green, for coordinating the movements of the boom, stick, and bucket
  • Over the Moon, that adds the coordinated movement of the swing
  • Bench Climbing/Descending
  • Trench Crossing, with "boom jacking"
  • Single-Pass Dig and Dump
  • Trenching
  • Trench and Load
  • Bench Loading with Truck Spotting
  • Bench Loading with Truck Spotting - Boulders
  • Ramp Building

Watch the sample videos to learn more!


For each Simulation Module, key "Performance Indicators" measure how quickly and how carefully the simulated work is performed, including execution time, truck loading accuracy, the maximum tilt angle when the excavator climbs/descends benches, and the number of "slams" that sound when the bucket is over-opened or over-closed. In this way, the 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 Personal Simulators.


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 hydraulic excavator, 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 hydraulic excavator 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.
