SokkiaAny of the Sokkia machine-control solutions can be used for manual or automatic dozer systems in rough earthmoving, leveling and spreading material, or for excavator systems for deep digs like canals and ponds. In conjunction with machine-control systems and guidance programs, Sokkia's fully robotic, fully tracking SRX total station and the 72-channel GNSS-capable GSR2700 ISX GPS receiver improve the quality of finish grading. Using the precision of the SRX total station, the operator can use visual grade information to monitor and manually adjust the elevation of the blade.
