Training with Cat Simulators Skill Builder
The new Cat Simulators Skill Builder line offers many options for heavy equipment training. The new product line begins with the Small Wheel Loader Skill Builder system featuring authentic Cat Controls. Training is set in a construction environment with objects and materials that the simulated machine can interact with such as pipes, dirt and a truck. The system also has an option for the VR Edition, to give users greater depth perception and a larger view of the environment.
