Operator Tip

a65674ee-6e83-4ef2-aaed-e393377b8880“When operating the M-Series Motor Grader, be sure you look down the road to where you’re going and not watching the front wheels. This will help in steering the machine straight. Also the narrower you keep your blade, the less power it takes to move material, and the less tendency the machine will have to duck walk.”

Support analyst and simulator expert, Joel Montgomery, shares his knowledge to help you get the most out of your simulators.

Your simulators can be networked to use the same records. This means that multiple simulators can accommodate the same users, class settings and reporting data. The manager’s workstation makes it possible. Set up a manager’s workstation and enter trainee/student names only once. All of the records from any user can be accessed from one central location. This is especially handy for reporting, as user progress can be tracked across all of the simulators in your fleet.

Learn more about networking your simulators together with a Manager’s Workstation.
