Trimble GCS Grade Control System for excavatorsAccording to Trimble, its new GCS Grade Control System for hydraulic excavators is an entry-level product designed for the owner/operator or the contractor in the earthmoving, general-construction, site-preparation and excavating industries. The GCS system provides an in-cab display that indicates depth and slope, or a combination of both. The benefits of the system, says Trimble, include savings in time and expense associated with grade staking and checking.
