Trimble Spectra Precision Laser DDS300 Depth Display System
May 1, 2012

Trimble’s Spectra Precision Laser DDS300 Depth Display System, a laser-referenced grade control solution targeted for compact machines, introduces a new environmentally-rated control box and new level of productivity for mini-excavators and backhoe loaders used for excavation and trenching work for basements, footers, utility lines and conduit. Cable-free components and simple installation  make the DDS300 system ideal for contractors who want to improve accuracy, fuel usage and safety of their excavation operations. The DDS300 system utilizes wireless communications, a laser receiver and angle sensors to provide dynamic positioning information for the excavator or backhoe bucket at all times. Real-time grade guidance is displayed on the 7-inch in-cab display, allowing the operator to work faster and with better accuracy. Accurate positioning of the bucket also improves the safety of excavation by eliminating the need for a grade checker to work in the trench or machine swing area.
