Version 12.81 of the Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System further expands the mix of machines supported to now include wheel loaders.

The 3D-MCMAX dozer machine control system is driven by dual Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs)

X-53i uses local positioning systems for excavators working in sky-obstructed areas where GPS is unreliable.

The i-53 indicate dozer machine control system includes a GNSS receiver, graphical user interface, and machine control software

The Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System for Bobcat Grader Attachments covers Bobcat’s all-wheel steer loaders, CTLs and skid steers, giving smaller contractors the ability to work on complex projects that require digital designs and 3D machine control.
