Earthworks Grade Control Platform version 1.7 has support for motor graders and automatic guidance for tiltrotator attachments.
Earthworks for Motor Graders is a GNSS-based, 3D grade control solution designed for fine grading. In addition, the platform now gives excavator operators using tiltrotators the advantage of automatic machine control. Earthworks for Motor Graders leverages Inertial Measurement Unit sensor technology in combination with GNSS, and operators will use the same intuitive Earthworks software that is available for excavators and dozers. Contractors can take advantage of the increased hardware portability available across their fleet for an even quicker return on their machine control investment, Trimble says.
When tiltrotators are used with Earthworks for Excavators, the bucket position and orientation are always visible regardless of bucket rotation. The operator can see the height and the rotation relative to the design. Tilt functions of the tiltrotator are automated to enable operators of all skill levels to be more productive when using these attachments.
