Leica PowerDigger 3D
March 5, 2008

Leica Geosystems offers Leica PowerDigger 3D, a flexible and user friendly 3D excavator system. This advanced excavator guidance system includes a choice of single or dual GNSS (GPS + GLONASS) PowerBox and PowerAntenna sensors, each capable of precisely locating the exact 3D position of the excavator bucket relative to the design surface. In real time, Leica PowerDigger 3D receives the machine position via GNSS, calculates the excavator bucket˜s exact 3D position on the site and compares the bucket position with the 3D design model, displaying differences (cut/fill/slope) to the operator on a large, easy-to-see display screen. It also makes working with vertical curves, cross-slope transitions, and changes in width fast and easy. Even fine-grading is possible with real-time 3D information about the bucket position, including bucket tilt and rotation.
