The Wheel Loader Simulator replicates the machine’s hydraulic systems, transmission, and tire deflection for a completely realistic experience. This heavy-duty simulator is the most cost-effective and efficient way to train operators in a risk-free environment while avoiding wear and tear on equipment. Now, operators can learn wheel loader duties such as earth moving, stockpile management, and truck loading operations safely and efficiently.


  • Highly detailed simulation with realistic lessons teaching proper operating technique in a virtual environment
  • Actual John Deere controls provide the experience of a real machine with true-to-life swappable controls
  • Integrated motion platform creates true-to-life simulation, creating a realistic soil digging, hydraulic pressure, terrain interaction and soil behavior
  • Performance metrics and reporting measures skill level including tasks completed, collisions, completion time and fuel consumption
  • Single or triple monitor display
  • Intuitive operator touch screen
  • Rugged, purpose-built PC
  • Simple setup combined with portability allows for rapid deployment
  • Reusable shipping and storage crate
