TRANSFORMING THE WAY THE WORLD WORKS Machine Control FOR EXCAVATORS: GETTING STARTED GUIDE 2D vs. 3D TAKE THE GUESSWORK OUT OF EARTHWORKS Performing earthworks faster, more accurately and more profitably is critical to success in today's highly competitive construction industry. Gain a competitive edge, streamline your operations, and improve your bottom line with machine control from the company that invented machine control. Dig with Confidence Trimble® Earthworks Grade Control Platform is an innovative, next generation grade control platform from Trimble featuring intuitive, easy-to-learn software that runs on an Android™ operating system. State-of-the-art software and hardware give operators of all skill levels the ability to work faster and more productively than ever before. Choose between two grade control systems—2D or 3D—depending on the type of work that you're doing. 2D (Bench or Laser Reference) Ideal for earthmoving contractors looking to improve their excavation productivity and profitability, two-dimensional grade control systems allows operators to work off a single plane—whether it be flat, single or dual slope. ► Relative guidance to the cutting edge ► Lower cost and infrastructure investment With Trimble 2D machine control, operators know the grade is correct from point A to point B to dig a straight-line trench, and can expect a consistent grade on a vertical plane. 3D (GNSS Reference) Three-dimensional grade control systems allow operators to add variable distances, such as a curved line or a curved trench. The excavator can be moved on the jobsite and still dig on grade. ► Absolute guidance to the cutting edge ► Higher cost and infrastructure investment, easier to use and scale TRANSFORMING THE WAY THE WORLD WORKS DEPTH Excavate to a desired depth Level pads Basements Building pads Achieve desired depth and slope Sloped surfaces Embankments Sports fields Berms and levees DEPTH + SLOPE Excavate along a profile Trenching Foundations and footers Utilities PROFILE Increase accuracy using an optional laser reference, easily upgrade to 3D Applications requiring high precision and accuracy LASER Trimble Earthworks 2D Grade Control Platform Trimble 2D grade control uses an angle sensor, dual axis sensor and optional laser catcher to measure the relationship between the body, boom, stick and bucket. This determines where the bucket teeth are, and where they should be, to achieve the desired depth and slope. DATASHEET
