Capabilities & Benefits

Layouts and Records as Built-in Data

Stop pounding stakes or waiting on the surveyor and start making money instead.  Trimble Groundworks follows the International Rock Excavation Data Exchange Standard (IREDES).

Improve Site Safety

Avoidance zones inform the operator of areas to avoid, reduce blind spots, and remove the need for personnel to stand near the machine.


There is no more educated guessing — drill precisely to the required depth with the auto-stop feature.  With auto-stop, you can eliminate over/under drilling and improve machine longevity.

Create Drill Plan

Improve productivity and quality by creating an in-field design for drilling without the delays of returning to the office.

3D & 2D Guidance

No more waiting for the surveyor — this system works anywhere, even without GNSS.  You can approach holes from any direction, operate in a difficult environment, and utilize the tilt and depth sensor.  Our system will calculate the bottom of a drill hole or the top of a pile to reduce over drilling and prevent accelerated machine drill bit and hammer wear.


Trimble Groundworks can be applied to a host of projects and will improve any job that requires piling or drilling machine control.  This system works at any time of day or night and in any weather, improving your workflow, saving you money, and growing your business.  Use Trimble Groundworks for:

  • Solar Farm Construction
  • Blast Hole Drilling
  • Structural Piling
  • Wick Drain Installation
  • Continuous Flight Augering (CFA)/auger cast piling
  • Anchor/monopile drilling
  • Dynamic Compactions
  • Soil Improvement
  • Geological Sampling
  • Oil, Gas, Mineral, or Water Exploration
