Trimble announces Trimble Earthworks for Excavators and Trimble Earthworks for Dozers.
Contractors can now take advantage of the first integrated 3D aftermarket grade control automatics for excavators, allowing operators to create smooth, flat or sloped surfaces more easily. When the excavator is placed in Auto mode, the operator controls the stick and Earthworks controls the boom and bucket to stay on grade, reduce overcut and increase production. By automating excavator operation, Earthworks allows operators to achieve grade consistently, with high accuracy and in less time.
Earthworks for Dozers mounts dual GNSS receivers on top of the cab to eliminate masts and cables traditionally located on the blade. The dual GNSS receivers are optimal for steep slope work and complex designs with tight tolerances. The new configuration keeps valuable receivers safer and can also save contractors time by reducing the time needed to remove and reinstall them each day.
Trimble Earthworks for Excavators is expected to be available globally in the second quarter of 2017 and Trimble Earthworks for Dozers is expected to be available in the second half of 2017 through the SITECH dealer channel.
