Boom Truck - LoadKing Stinger 28-106 BT-Slide06-2160px
Boom trucks offer a great deal of mobility and are often regarded as lower risk machines given the smaller load capacities. But on the contrary, boom truck operations account for a high volume of incidents due to their large availability, under-trained and under-qualified operators and unique operational risks like the blind spots a boom truck cab creates.  In the VR Boom Truck Operator Simulator, training and assessment occurs in an authentic way, right from the cab of 28 ton, LoadKing Stinger 28-106.

LoadKing Stinger 28-106 Specs

  • Max. Capacity: 28 tons
  • Main Boom Length: 106’
  • Max. Tip Height w/Ext: 162’
  • Max. Boom Length: 153’
  • Max. Counterweight: None
  • Overall Length: 32’ 3”

Motion Base Crane Simulator
I oversee 30-50 operators at any given time depending on how many jobs we have going. All I have to say is that all my operators need to get on this simulator. If they can pass the modules I tried, I have no doubt in my mind that they can do the job. I have been doing this a long time, and the VR Simulator is the most realistic simulator I have ever seen.
