GCS900 available for wheel loaders
By Andrew Macklin
February 12, 2016 – Trimble has introduced version 12.81 of its Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System. The new version further expands the mix of machines supported to now include wheel loaders.
GCS900 for Wheel Loaders
The Trimble GCS900 version 12.81 release includes a new 3D configuration for wheel loaders, broadening the range of machine types supported. Contractors can realize a higher and more rapid return on their investment in technology by using Trimble machine control components on a variety of machines and for more applications.
The new configuration for wheel loaders allows contractors to realize productivity gains in both fine and rough grading applications. Operators can precisely control the amount of material being graded, improve fine grading accuracy and time, and reduce the potential for undercutting the surface during material placement or removal.
Using a wheel loader equipped with GCS900, contractors can track material weight with a Trimble Loadrite weighing system. In addition, material placement and grade can be monitored by adding a VisionLink Project Monitoring subscription for a more accurate and complete picture of project progress.
The Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System version 12.81 is available now globally through the SITECH dealer channel.
