Designed for excavation, trenching, grading and profile work, the Trimble GCS600 Grade Control System for excavators is an entry-level product for the owner-operator or contractor in the earthmoving, general construction, site preparation and excavating markets. The unit uses angle sensors that measure the relationship between the body, boom, stick and bucket to determine where the cutting edge is and should be, directing the operator to the desired depth and slope. This capability is designed to significantly reduce the costs and downtime associated with staking or the grade checking, and also increases site safety by eliminating the need for a person to be present near the operating excavator.
