The Trimble 2D GCS900 Grade Control System for compact machines is an excellent first investment for contractors new to construction technology.

Measure the lift and tilt of the blade with a single laser and laser receiver
Measure the slope of the blade by adding another laser receiver or a slope sensor
Get to grade more accurately and quickly with in-cab elevation and slope guidance
Upgrade to a 3D grade control system as your job complexity grows

Finished Grade
Achieve tight tolerances and a smooth finished grade with precise vertical guidance.
Calculate the cross-slope of the blade using two angle sensors and a rotation sensor
Add a laser receiver or a sonic tracer to measure elevation
Trace stringline, previous pass, or curb and gutter with a sonic tracer

Laser Grade Control
GCS900 Compact machines are the work horses of many construction sites. As you find more uses for them, Trimble continues to refine our offerings into systems that work just as hard as you do, with a price to fit your budget.

Here are just some of the benefits you will gain by using our compact machine solutions on your skid steers, backhoe loaders and mini-excavators:

Increased Productivity
Now you can use your compact machines for more specialized and finished grade applications

Reduced Labor and Downtime
You don’t need to wait for grade checks because you can immediately see when you’re on grade
There’s no need to get out of the machine to check grade yourself

Reduced Rework
When you move the material correctly the first time, there’s no need to spend time doing rework
