What’s new in grade control solutions? Come what may, it seems pretty that clear grade control technology is here to stay. In addition to allowing operators to make consistently make grade, these solutions save money and resources. On-Site magazine looks at what’s new and/or noteworthy in Trimble grade control.
Trimble’s Earthworks for Dozer’s grade control software offers intuitive settings and a unique Horizontal Steering Control function. This function enables the machine to automatically follow a horizontal alignment from a 3D model so operators can focus on grade and productivity.
“We’re the only provider that can automatically control a dozer in a horizontal alignment,” says Cameron Clark, earthmoving industry director at Trimble Civil Construction.
A few years ago, Trimble introduced Earthworks GO!, a pioneering, easy-to-set-up grade control solution that can be run on a mobile phone.
Earthworks GO! determines blade tip position, optimises machine performance for specific grading tasks, and controls the machine’s automatic blade settings, among other features.
Trimble’s WorksManager solution is “another thing that’s applicable to grading,” adds Clark.
WorksManager allows machines to wirelessly receive 3D designs and other information from machines, drones, and additional data sources if work plans change.
