Cat Simulators new Underground LHD addresses the need with safe, efficient training that is always consistent,” says Vice President Renee Gorrell. “We develop our simulators with Caterpillar subject matter experts so every technique is the same as the applications performed in underground mines around the world.”

The Underground LHD Simulator includes exercises that teach how to perform a Walkaround for safety and maintenance, Controls Familiarization, System Tests, Bucket Placement, Driving, Truck Loading, and Dumping into a Crusher. Plus, Open Training in each exercise offers opportunities for additional practice and skill refinement.

Exclusive to Cat Simulators is SimU Campus™ Training Records Management, software that measures, records and reports the results of all simulation sessions. Hundreds of benchmarks based on Caterpillar expert data are included, with user performance measured against the benchmarks and outcomes recorded to a database.
