At bauma 2019, Trimble and Liebherr announced the introduction of a Trimble-ready factory option for new Liebherr PR736 Generation 8 dozers. The option is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2019.
When a PR736 Generation 8 is purchased, the option to install the base kit for the Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform is now available. The base kit provides mounting hardware, brackets and an integrated wiring harness, allowing a more seamless and less costly installation.
"By providing a Trimble-ready option, customers now have a solution that enables quick, easy installation of Trimble Earthworks," said Johannes Neureiter, product manager for Liebherr. "Contractors are increasingly utilizing construction technology on the jobsite, and this new option makes the installation more integrated and less costly for our mutual customers."
"The introduction of a Trimble-ready option for Liebherr PR736 Generation 8 bulldozer supports our commitment to serve equipment manufacturers and their customers with construction technology that can maximize productivity and profitability," said Jean Francois Sourdoire, OEM business development manager, Europe, Africa, Middle East for Trimble Civil Engineering and Construction. "By making it faster and less expensive to install Trimble technology, Liebherr customers can now realize an even quicker return on investment from their Trimble equipment."
SITECH, Trimble's global distribution network, provides installation services, personalized training and local technical support for Earthworks installed on Liebherr PR736 Generation 8 dozer.
