Make more progress and fewer waves
Leave a finished grade the first time, every time.
The Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform for motor graders helps operators of all levels leave a quality surface in their tracks. This latest release in the Earthworks family is more than future forward. It’s fast forward. The next generation system has blade-mounted receivers, familiar Android™ UI, and friendly 10-inch touch screen that cuts the learning curve, improves operator capabilities and gives you a first-pass finish that’s second to none.
Intuitive Software, Rugged Hardware
The Trimble Earthworks grade control app runs on the new 10-inch (25.7 centimeter) Trimble TD520 touch-screen Android display. The software was created in collaboration with construction equipment operators around the world, so the interface is optimized for ease-of-use and productivity. Colourful graphics, natural interactions and gestures, and self-discovery features make Earthworks intuitive and easy to learn. Each operator can personalize the interface to match their workflow and a variety of configurable views make it easier to see the right perspective for maximum productivity.
Trimble, a leader in precision measurement technology, pioneered the dual GNSS solution to meet the needs of the construction industry. Dual GNSS provides real-time position and heading of the machine for the guidance of the motor grader blade in 3D, enabling faster reaction times and enhanced performance.
Trimble Earthworks for motor graders mastless configuration* mounts one GNSS antenna on the cab and one on the gooseneck of the machine to eliminate masts and cables traditionally located on the blade. Mastless GNSS receivers are ideal for the blade’s maximum range of motion, needed for steep slope work and complex designs with tight tolerances. The new configuration enables contractors to decrease the risk of damage to the machine, keep valuable antennas safer as well as reduce the time needed to remove and reinstall them each day.
