The Trimble GCS900 3D Grade Control System for Graders with dual GPS can be installed on motor graders for a wide range of earthmoving applications helping contractors to significantly improve their productivity and profitability. The 3D Machine Control System on a motor grader is a full 3D control system that puts the site plan – design surfaces, grades and alignment – inside the cab.
The Trimble patented dual GPS antenna configuration is preferred for GPS-based Grade Control Systems. Using GPS, the exact position, very accurate cross slope and heading of the blade is measured. This is especially advantageous for complex design surfaces such as super-elevation grading tasks.
