Doosan excavator customers to get Trimble Ready option

DOOSAN has announced it has teamed up with Trimble to provide a Trimble Ready factory option for excavator customers in response to growing demand for grade control systems.

The manufacturer said the Trimble Ready option will be available direct from the factory through Doosan Smart Solutions for use with Trimble GCS900 2D and 3D grade dontrol Systems.

Doosan explained that the Trimble GCS900 grade control system gives operators access to design surfaces, grades and alignments on a display inside the excavator cab. The system uses GNSS, GPS, laser, sonic or total station technology to position the blade or bucket in real time.

The site plan and grade information can be displayed in the cab, meaning operators can finish jobs “faster with minimal supervision”, Doosan added.
