SITECH Trimble 3D Grading System for Compact MachinesThe Trimble GCS900 3D Grade Control System can be installed on compact machines to put the site plan – design surfaces, grades and alignments – inside the cab.

GRADING

  • Measure the position and blade slope with the single GNSS antenna configuration
  • Measure the exact position, very accurate cross slope and the heading of the blade with dual GNSS


FINISHED GRADE

  • Achieve finished grade to millimeter accuracy with fewer passes
  • Place finished grade materials more accurately and in a shorter time period, keeping material costs to a minimum and realizing better profits


APPLICATIONS

Trimble GCS900 3D for Compact Machines is ideal for:

  • Commercial Site development
  • Residential development
  • Concrete Subgrade
  • Parking lots
  • Complex Grading
  • Footpaths and walkways
  • Sports fields and arenas
  • Landscaping


CONFIGURATIONS

  • SINGLE GNSS Measures the position and slope of the blade and compares that to design data for rough grading and mass excavation on complex design surfaces
  • DUAL GNSS – Measures the exact position, cross slope and heading of the blade for rough grading and mass excavation on steep slopes and complex design surfaces
  • UNIVERSAL TOTAL STATIONS – Total station based system for extreme accuracy for lift and layer control, material monitoring, or where GNSS is not the ideal solution because of overhead obstructions

SITECH Trimble 2D Grading System on a Skid SteerThe Trimble 2D GCS900 Grade Control System for compact machines is an excellent first investment for contractors new to construction technology.

GRADING

  • Measure the lift and tilt of the blade with a single laser and laser receiver
  • Measure the slope of the blade by adding another laser receiver or a slope sensor
  • Get to grade more accurately and quickly with in-cab elevation and slope guidance
  • Upgrade to a 3D grade control system as your organization grows


FINISHED GRADE

  • Achieve tight tolerances and a smooth finished grade with precise vertical guidance.
  • Calculate the cross-slope of the blade using two angle sensors and a rotation sensor
  • Add a laser receiver or a sonic tracer to measure elevation
  • Trace stringline, previous pass, or curb and gutter with a sonic tracer
  • Easily upgrade to 3D

Trimble GCS900 2D for Compact Machines is ideal for:

  • Commercial Site development
  • Residential development
  • Concrete Subgrade
  • Parking lots
  • Footpaths and walkways
  • Sports fields and arenas
  • Landscaping


CONFIGURATIONS

  • SINGLE ELEVATION PLUS CROSS-SLOPE – Single control system uses a laser or sonic receiver to control the lift of the machine blade and the cross-slope for flat, slope work, and finished grading
  • DUAL ELEVATION – Dual control system that uses two laser or sonic receivers for higher accuracy lift control. Blade edge can be controlled independently or linked


FINISHED GRADE

  • Achieve tight tolerances and a smooth finished grade with precise vertical guidance.
  • Calculate the cross-slope of the blade using two angle sensors and a rotation sensor

SITECH Trimble Laser Grade Control For Compact MachinesCompact machines are the work horses of many construction sites. As you find more uses for them, Trimble continues to refine our offerings into systems that work just as hard as you do, with a price to fit your budget.

Here are just some of the benefits you will gain by using our compact machine solutions on your skid steers, backhoe loaders and mini-excavators:

INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY

  • Now you can use your compact machines for more specialized and finished grade applications


REDUCED LABOR AND DOWNTIME

  • You don’t need to wait for grade checks because you can immediately see when you’re on grade
  • There’s no need to get out of the machine to check grade yourself


REDUCED REWORK

  • When you move the material correctly the first time, there’s no need to spend time doing rework

 


Compact Machine Laser Grade Single Control Lift
SINGLE CONTROL – LIFT

The easy-to-use Spectra Precision® Laser CB25 Single Control Box lets you automatically control glade elevation for balancing and rough grading applications, or automatically control the blade for fine grading.


FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Cab-mounted, automatic control of lift of blade or attachment performs simple elevation display to more complex grading jobs requiring automatic elevation blade control
  • Switch from automatic to manual control with the quick flip of one switch, so there’s no need to stop or change settings
  • Super-bright LED grade displays relay blade position to grade in any lighting condition for maximum productivity

 

CONFIGURATIONS

The CB25 can be used with the Spectra Precision Laser LR50 Grade Display Receiver or LR60 Grade Display Receiver on the following machines and attachments:

  • Skid-steer loaders
  • Small graders
  • Attachments such as dozer blade, grader blade, box blade, loader bucket for automatic control requiring lift control

 


Compact Machine Laser Grade Control Lift & Tilt
DUAL CONTROL – LIFT & TILT

FEATURES

  • Advanced, yet affordable lift and tilt in one control box
  • Simultaneous, automatic control of lift and tilt of blade or attachment
  • Designed-in flexibility performs simple elevation display to more complex grading jobs requiring automatic elevation and slope blade control


CONFIGURATIONS

The CB30 can be used with the Spectra Precision Laser LR50 Grade Display Receiver or LR60 Grade Display Receiver on the following machines and attachments:

  • Skid-steer loaders with attachments such as 6-way dozer blade, grader blade, box blade, loader bucket for automatic control requiring lift or lift and tilt control
  • Small dozer with lift or lift and tilt automatic control
  • Small graders for lift and tilt control
