February 01, 2008

By providing precise information on the depth and position of the excavator’s bucket, the large color display of Leica’s new PowerDigger automated excavation system is designed to guide the operator straight to the target grade with minimal passes. Multiple job settings allow the machine operator to switch between different digging profiles at the touch of a button. Custom profiles can be created on the machine to continue from existing ground profiles, giving the operator confidence even in “blind-cut” situations.
