The Generation 1 or 1.5 Cat® (Caterpillar) Simulator models are obsolete. These models were manufactured in the 2000s and we cannot get parts or make any updates to software. The simulator software is not compatible with Windows 10 operating systems.
Because the models are outdated, we are no longer offering yearly technical support subscriptions. If you are still using any of these models, our analysts can attempt to answer questions or troubleshoot at an hourly rate of $79. (Have credit card information ready at time of call.)
Another solution is our Trade-In Program. You can receive a credit for your outdated model and apply it toward a new Cat® Simulator. If you have multiple different simulator models, our simulators now come with convertible controls for the same base unit.
Please call 1.877.434.7467 or 1.309.266.2640 or email if you would like to trade in your obsolete model for a new Cat Simulator. Our Team would be happy to show you all the new enhanced features added to Cat Simulators. We can set up a virtual demo from our livestream room at any time.
Windows Updates—Just Say No
- We recommend that you do not accept any Windows updates on computers running Cat® Simulators software; or update an older operating system to Windows 10. Updates may interfere with the quality of simulation experience.
- Should you feel it is necessary to update the operating system, please contact Cat simulators Support by message or phone at 309.266.2640 before updating the computer. Our team will ensure you have the best possible outcome.

No; our experience has shown that any deviation from the recommended computer and video card may cause issues that can be difficult if not impossible to correct. Each simulator is tested extensively before being sent to a customer. Through this rigorous testing phase, we know the combination of hardware, software, graphics drivers, etc. will perform as expected. We cannot make the same statement regarding any other combination of products. Because we want to provide the very best experience for our customers, we package the computer with the simulator.
