Trimble and Hitachi Construction Machinery Loaders America Inc. (HCMA) announce the availability of Trimble LOADRITE L3180 SmartScale as an option on Hitachi Wheel Loaders in the U.S.
The LOADRITE L3180 SmartScale uses weighing intelligence and solid -tate sensors for more accurate, precise and faster loading. It also connects machines and devices for the collection and syncing of data via the built-in WiFi to InsightHQ reporting portal. Reengineered from the ground up, the next-generation loader scale platform features smarter weighing, smarter data management and a smarter operator interface. Intelligence in the weighing software and new hardware gives operators of all skill levels the ability to load faster and more productively than ever before.
“The Trimble-Hitachi collaboration is a demonstration of our customer focus and dedication to bringing Hitachi wheel loader customers the latest construction technology,” said Al Quinn, vice president, Operations, HCMA. “Combining the strength of Hitachi’s world-leading wheel loader technology with the accuracy and usability of Trimble LOADRITE scales enables customers to improve loadout productivity and efficiency.”
"Leveraging the collaboration between Trimble and Hitachi for advanced construction technology, this new program brings Trimble technology and Hitachi machinery together, helping the customer maximize productivity from their wheel loader," said Johan Smet, general manager of Trimble’s Aggregates Division. "Together, Trimble and Hitachi make it easier for contractors and aggregate producers by streamlining the order process for Hitachi machines with Trimble weighing systems.”
The L3180 loader scale will be showcased at Trimble Dimensions User Conference in Las Vegas from November 5-7, 2018.
