Trimble introduced today a 3D grade control solution for Bobcat All-Wheel Steer Loaders, Compact Track Loaders and Skid-Steer Loaders. The Trimble® GCS900 Grade Control System for Bobcat Grader Attachments allows small contractors to work faster and more effectively on complex projects that require digital designs and 3D machine control.
Large contractors can also benefit by using 3D machine control to complete the finish phase of projects more affordably and accurately with their Bobcat machines.
"Bobcat leadership in compact equipment combined with Trimble expertise in 3D grade control gives contractors a trusted, reliable solution," said Ryan Kunisch, marketing director for Trimble Civil Engineering and Construction. "With the first 3D solution for Bobcat equipment, compact machine owners can now take advantage of the significant efficiency gains provided by Trimble 3D machine control."
Using digital 3D models prepared in Trimble's Business Center – HCE office software, the Trimble GCS900 system is ideal for footpaths, parking lots and sidewalks. Part of the portfolio of Trimble Connected Site® solutions, the system includes the ability to wirelessly sync files to the machine, track assets and site productivity, and receive remote support or training. The Trimble GCS900 3D system is available as an upgrade from the 2D laser-guided and sonic/slope systems already offered by Bobcat, so customers can easily leverage their initial investment in grade control.
