Vista Training has introduced a PC-based Hydraulic Excavator Personal Simulator. It puts an operator at the controls of an excavator at a virtual construction site and is available in English and French (Spanish coming soon). Twelve simulation lessons progress with increasing difficulty. There is a menu to switch between SAE and backhoe-loader joystick patterns. Data is tracked to allow comparison to benchmarks. For more information, call 1-800-942-2886, ext.305.
