2D Grade Control Platform
Trimble Earthworks 2D grade control system for excavators is ideal for contractors who want to improve their excavation productivity and profitability by making jobs easier, faster, and more accurate. It’s also a stepping stone to upgrade to 3D grade control for more precise positioning or complex designs as operators become comfortable and proficient using 2D, and as the business grows.
Dig with Confidence
The system uses an angle and dual-axis sensors and laser catcher to measure between the body, boom, stick, and bucket before guiding operators to the specified depth and slope, while ensuring bucket teeth are positioned precisely. It can be configured for a variety of applications, including:
Using Trimble Earthworks, operators can work more efficiently to deliver a product to grade. Avoid over-digging and eliminate the need for personnel to check grade, freeing them to do other work while the operator maintains an accurate grade. Jobsite safety is also improved with fewer people working near the machine.
Common applications include:
- Residential and commercial sites
- Road construction
- Finished slope work
- Dredging and waterways
- Digging footers and basements
