The 3D-MC2 system updates the position of the machine and blade 100 times per second in nine dimensions to provide “unmatched stability and responsiveness.” Using the next-generation Windows XP control box, the GX-60 is a touch screen computer with a faster processor to work with larger job files. Paradigm G3 technology accesses all available satellite systems now and in the future. Estimated list price: $72,000.
