Trimble and Liebherr announced the introduction of a Trimble Ready factory option for new Liebherr PR736 Generation 8 bulldozers. PR736 Generation 8 bulldozers that ship direct from the Liebherr factory are now ready for the installation of the Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform, which can significantly reduce the cost and complexity of the installation for the contractor.
The announcement was made at bauma 2019, the world’s leading trade fair for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment.
When a Liebherr PR736 Generation 8 bulldozer is purchased, the option to install a Trimble Earthworks Base Kit is now available. This base kit provides mounting hardware, brackets and an integrated wiring harness allowing a more seamless installation of Trimble Earthworks.
"By providing a Trimble Ready option, customers now have a solution that enables quick, easy installation of Trimble Earthworks," said Johannes Neureiter, Product Manager for Liebherr. "Contractors are increasingly utilizing construction technology on the job site, and this new option makes the installation more integrated and less costly for our mutual customers."
"The introduction of a Trimble Ready option for Liebherr PR736 Generation 8 bulldozer supports our commitment to serve equipment manufacturers and their customers with construction technology that can maximize productivity and profitability," said Jean Francois Sourdoire, OEM Business Development Manager, Europe, Africa, Middle East for Trimble Civil Engineering and Construction. "By making it faster and less expensive to install Trimble technology, Liebherr customers can now realize an even quicker return on investment from their Trimble equipment."
SITECH, Trimble's global distribution network, provides installation services, personalized training and local technical support for Trimble Earthworks installed on Liebherr PR736 Generation 8 bulldozer. SITECH dealers understand how to apply Trimble Connected Site solutions to effectively improve on- and off-machine productivity.
The Trimble Ready option for Liebherr PR736 Generation 8 bulldozers is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2019.
