3D Grade Control

GCS900 for excavators 3DThe Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System can be installed on excavators with standard buckets or tilt buckets for mass excavation projects. GCS900 also supports tilt rotator attachments.

  • Work in any environment with a flexible system that can use either GNSS or total stations
  • Use two GNSS receivers and solid state angle sensors to measure the precise 3D position of the teeth of the bucket
  • Use a total station-based system for extreme accuracy
  • Track GPS, GLONASS and Galileo signals
  • Use for wet construction with a watertight seal around the angle sensor with the optional AS455 Submersible Enclosures
  • Quickly perform complex tasks and simplify finishing slopes with accurate 3D positioning
  • Use the system on excavators with tilt buckets for shaping V-ditches and operations where the excavator is digging a slope that is not perpendicular to the boom
