Are you ready for undertime?

80% of construction jobs run into overtime. That’s why Trimble has designed the Earthworks Grade Control Platform to help operators do more in less time.

Trimble Earthworks introduces the industry’s first integrated 3D aftermarket excavator automatics capability. In addition, a new dozer configuration moves the receivers from the blade to the roof of the cab.

Reengineered from the ground up, this innovative, next generation grade control platform features intuitive, easy-to-learn software that runs on the Android operating system. State-of-the-art software and hardware gives operators of all skill levels the ability to work faster and more productively than ever before.

Colourful graphics, natural interactions and gestures, and self-discovery features make the software intuitive and easy to learn. Each operator can personalise the interface to match their workflow and a variety of configurable views make it easier to see the right perspective for maximum productivity.

Plus, Earthworks allows data files to be transferred to or from the office wirelessly and automatically so that the operator is always using the latest design. The Earthworks application can be run on either the new Trimble TD520 display or a third-party Android device.

Trimble Earthworks is available for excavators and with a mastless dozer configuration.
