Case has developed a universal machine control option for its production class M Series dozers (1150M, 1650M and 2050M) that makes each machine factory compatible with all major suppliers of machine control technology, including Topcon, Trimble and Case precision partner Leica Geosystems, within a single “universal machine control” option.
The system provides a universal harness for blade guidance systems, universal machine brackets and mounts and universal jumpers to integrate any industry solution into each dozer. This allows the dozers to be deployed, straight from the dealer into any fleet-wide precision or machine control solution an owner/operator/contractor may deploy on their worksites. It also helps improve retained and resale value, as the dozer will be compatible with any solution during resale into its second or third operational lifespan.
It also provides the flexibility to prepare the dozer for retrofit of precision solutions after the purchase, without having to change mounting points or wiring harnesses depending on the system provider of their choice.
Case is providing a limited-time offer of a free SiteControl CoPilot system powered by Leica Geosystems with the purchase of a universal machine control-equipped dozer with Leica-ready option (when purchased through a Case dealer). CoPilot bridges the gap between automatic and indicate-only systems, and offers a cost-effective entry into 2D and 3D machine control technology.
