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!
As before, just set up the simulator controls (see below for details), install the
simulation software in English, French,
Spanish or Portuguese on your
desktop or laptop PC, and begin! Add a projector or
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 almost any
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.
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.
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
- Trench and Load
- Bench Loading with Truck Spotting
- Bench Loading with Truck Spotting - Boulders
- Ramp Building
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.

The price of the commercial software license for Simlog's Hydraulic Excavator Personal Simulator
is just USD$6,000. Since even small accidents due to inexperience can cost thousands of
dollars in replacement parts and downtime, this represents excellent training value, not to
mention the improved training safety.
Pricing is "per PC", and this is a one time fee. There are
no restrictions on the number of people that you can train with Simlog's help.

Many kinds of USB-ready simulator controls, and mounting configurations, are available:
Free Software Evaluation
Simlog offers free software evaluation to qualified heavy equipment industry professionals and
educators. In Evaluation Mode, all of the simulator functionality can be experienced, but there
are some limitations. To learn more, please refer to the additional
