    3D Grade Control

    Used with a total station, single or dual GNSS receivers, GCS900 3D is ideal for bulk earthwork, grading and fine grading applications such as:

    • Material spreading
    • Highway and railway construction
    • Airport construction
    • Concrete pours and slab placement
    • Residential and commercial site construction

    2D Grade Control

    Using a 2D system with a grade laser, you can improve your dozer operations on projects such as:

    • Road and highway projects
    • Land reclamation projects
    • Dam and reservoir construction
    • New infrastructure projects
  • Configurations

    3D Grade Control

    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

    Single or Dual GNSS with Laser Augmentation

    Single and dual GNSS systems enhanced with laser augmentation to improve vertical accuracy for high accuracy guidance to complex design surfaces such as super-elevation grading from rough through finished grade work

    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

    2D Grade Control

    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, slopework, 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
