Dozers/Track Type Tractors, aka bulldozer or crawler, run on continuous twin tracks instead of wheels. The machine has a large, changeable blade at the front for moving material and can use a ripper at the rear of the machine. The tracks give the machine excellent ground hold and mobility when moving over rough terrain.
Dozers/Track Type Tractors are designed to push heavy materials and remove any obstacles stuck in the ground. For example, you may see them building roads, clearing trees or moving waste in a landfill. The ripper is designed to break up hard ground for easier blading. These machines are widely used in many industries, from home construction to mining, and come in varying sizes.
In the program, learners will focus on safe and effective operation of a Dozer/Track Type Tractor, while applying correct operational techniques recommended by industry experts. Learners will practice in the virtual environment and should repeat exercises until mastered. Corresponding materials are presented along with each exercise, including quizzes and tests. Throughout the material, learners can build on knowledge and skills from previous lessons and exercises.
Simformotion™ is the licensee for Cat® Simulators for Caterpillar Inc. During the development of Cat Simulators, the Simformotion team worked closely with subject-matter experts to develop each exercise using the same techniques as found on real-world jobsites. Our curriculum works in tandem with simulation training to create a full educational experience for the learner. Throughout the material you will see images taken directly from the Cat Simulators simulation software. The images are used to help illustrate lessons and techniques.
