Simulation allows learners to practice dangerous scenarios that would otherwise be impossible to duplicate in real life. Making a mistake in the virtual world doesn't have the same consequences as real life. Simulations can replicate perilous or risky situations, allowing learners to train and master procedures, so once in the real world they are better prepared for the situation. The risk to hurting themselves, co-workers, job sites or machines are greatly reduced because of knowledge gained during simulations. What would happen if the brakes failed on a haul truck; a loaded bucket was carried too high; or a machine went [...]
Approach the bank squarely with the bucket slightly off the ground and just skimming the surface. The loader frame should be straight when the bucket enters the pile. This straight configuration gives the loader optimum stability, the best traction, and the greatest transfer of horsepower available to do the task.
