Peoria, IL (I-Newswire) December 12, 2012 - Simformotion™ LLC, Peoria, Ill.-a leader in heavy equipment simulator training solutions-announces the release of the new Cat® Simulators FM Log Loader System for Forestry. The new Log Loader Simulation Trainer is set in a forest environment where operators can learn the same machine applications found on actual forest production sites, in the safety of the virtual environment.

Hundreds of benchmarks based on Caterpillar expert data are included in the system, with the operator's performance measured against these benchmarks and outcomes recorded to a database. Plus the PC-based simulator system is equipped with a motion platform so users can feel the realistic machine movement during training exercises.

Vice President Renee Gorrell says, "Using Cat Simulators as part of an end-to-end training program can provide immediate cost savings to a forestry company's bottom line by reducing machine wear-and-tear and fuel costs; keeping actual machines in production; and allowing them to train multiple operators on multiple machines at one time."
