Excavator owners new to grade control can use the Trimble GCSFlex Grade Control system to improve productivity, capitalizing on the system’s innovative Wi-Fi-enabled GNSS positioning and in-field designs. When more advanced features are needed, owners can seamlessly upgrade to the Trimble GCS900 grade-control system, says the company, to further leverage the GCSFlex investment. The advanced functionality of GCS900, says Trimble, allows small contractors to work on larger, more-complex construction projects that require 3D designs and machine connectivity. By adding a software upgrade and the Trimble SNM940 Connected Site Gateway, contractors can work with 3D design models and enable the Connected Machine technology incorporated in the GCS900 system.
