Trimble announces Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform version 2.0 with new features for all machine types, along with the release of the Trimble Earthworks Assistant App for in-cab learning material.

  • Enables faster ROI, increased productivity and decreased training time for operators
  • Includes Horizontal Steering Control for dozers which automatically controls the machine to follow any horizontal alignment such as a back of a curb, breakline, roadway centerline or bottom of slope, without operator assistance
  • Augmented Reality for excavators enables users to easily understand 3D models, cut/fill information, slope data and other bench points and reference points on the in-cab display in context, without the need to interpret complex 2D plans or stakes 
  • Mastless motor grader configuration gives operators improved range of blade motion, allowing for machine control in applications where it was previously not possible
  • Integrated Trimble LOADRITE Payload Management displays grade control and accurate payload data on one screen, increasing mass haul productivity and efficiency by preventing underloading, and improving safety by avoiding overloading
  • Available for compact grading attachments with dual GNSS, single GNSS and total station guidance options

Horizontal Steering Control

  • Allows operator to focus on the grade and machine productivity rather than worrying about steering, reducing operator fatigue and errors
  • Enables machine to follow the horizontal guidance from the 3D model, providing operators increased awareness of their surroundings, better accuracy and improved productivity with decreased overlap and fewer passes

Mastless Motor Grader 

  • Mastless configuration mounts one GNSS receiver on the cab and one on the gooseneck of the machine to eliminate masts and cables traditionally located on the blade
  • Well suited for the blade's maximum range of motion, which is needed for steep slope work and complex designs with tight tolerances
  • Enables contractors to decrease risk of damage to the machine, keep valuable receivers safer as well as reduce the time needed to remove and reinstall them each day

Augmented Reality for Excavators

  • Uses camera mounted on the outside of the machine to allow operators to view 3D models in a real-world environment at a true-life scale, in the context of existing surroundings
  • Model is overlaid onto the existing ground giving the operator a better understanding of the work that needs to be done 
  • Visibility of the bucket gives operators better situational awareness to be able to keep surrounding people and objects safe
