Current earthmoving and fine grading processes are labor intensive and dependent on manpower and instruments. Maintaining consistent grade between stakes is challenging, even for experienced operators. ACCUGRADE™ GPS reduces labor requirements and helps operators work to the design plan by accurately cutting, filling, and reducing material cost.
The ACCUGRADE™ GPS control system is the best solution when the construction site involves contours, rather than single or dual slope planes. The ACCUGRADE™ 3D system uses GPS technology to compare the blade position to a three-dimensional computerized site plan and signals the operator or hydraulic system to raise or lower the blade to achieve the design requirements.
Advanced GPS technology solutions move the design plan to the cab for greater operator control, increased accuracy, higher productivity and lower operating costs.
The ACCUGRADE™ GPS Grade Control System is a high technology machine control and guidance system that allows dozer operators to grade with increased accuracy, without the need for survey stakes. Digital design data, in-cab operator guidance features and automatic blade controls help the operator achieve grade faster, meaning higher productivity, lower operating costs, and greater profitability.
ACCUGRADE™ GPS is designed for a wide range of construction earthwork applications, from bulk clearing with high production rates to finish grading with tight tolerances.
Flat, single and dual sloping planar designs, such as building pads, parking lots, roads and highways, can be created on-board the machine using the ACCUGRADE™ GPS system. Complex 3D designs, such as golf courses and roads with super elevations, can be created in the office by design engineers and loaded onto the system via a compact flash card.
