Motor Grader

Motor Grader simulator for training from John Deere

Overview

John Deere Motor Grader Simulator StandJohn Deere’s Motor Grader Operator Training Simulator is a cost-effective, safe, and efficient way to train new operators in a risk-free environment while avoiding fuel costs, risk to equipment or personnel, downtime, or emissions.

Nine highly detailed and realistic lessons teach proper operator technique and safe operation in a virtual jobsite. This revolutionary Motor Grader training simulator enables an operator to 'cut' and 'fill' realistic dirt and aggregate to help build the proficiency and confidence necessary to begin mastering the fine art of grading.

After completing each lesson, operators receive immediate feedback based on their performance and will see how much material was above and below grade. Operators are scored against a budget and other skilled operators to help identify strengths and weaknesses.

This simulator features John Deere's new GP armrest mounted fingertip controls that are laid out in the industry standard pattern. Therefore, learning operator technique on this simulator will be transferable to the new GP controls as well as traditional mechanical style controls.

The Motor Grader simulator includes the simulator software and license, portable simulator stand with adjustable armrests, lightweight adjustable seat, replica shift console, replica foot pedals, replica steering wheel, and replica armrest mounted fingertip controls.
