Case Construction Equipment has added the option of Leica Geosystem's OEM-Fit 2D and 3D machine control systems to its Case D Series excavators.
Case SiteControl Certified dealers will install the systems, ensuring that it is properly installed and tested. The systems can also be part of the acquisition process, with financing or lease approval grouped with the purchase of the machine into a single package.
“It takes the guesswork out of what solution works best with each machine, and ensures that it is installed and tested by certified professionals before it’s delivered to the contractor,” says Nathaniel Waldschmidt, product manager, Case. “The excavator and the machine control system are optimally matched and calibrated — helping the owners and operators of each machine get up and running immediately upon delivery of the machine.”
In addition, Case says OEM-Fit machine control solutions increase the residual/resale value of equipped excavators, and let used buyers know that the system is designed and proven to work with the machine.
"Machine control has the ability to transform the productivity, efficiency and long-term profitability of excavators,” Waldschmidt says. “We’re now making the addition of machine control with excavators completely turnkey."
Case says the Leica system offers several features that increase the productivity, safety and accuracy of excavators while providing an easy-to-use hardware and software platform.
Case's D series excavators range from the 30,140-pound DX130D to the 158,300-pound CKL750D.
