“Working closely with Trimble, we have made high-precision guidance available for Engcon tiltrotator attachments,” said Fredrik Jonsson, development manager at Engcon. “Major gains in productivity and precision can be realized by customers when the Engcon tiltrotator is used with the Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System.”

“We are excited about linking Trimble machine control to Engcon’s tiltrotator system,” said Scott Crozier, marketing director for Trimble’s Civil Engineering and Construction Division. “When operators receive accurate guidance in the cab about the tilt and rotation position of the bucket, excavations to designs can be performed faster and more productively.”

When Engcon tiltrotators are used with the Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System the bucket position and orientation are always visible regardless of bucket rotation. The operator can see the height and the rotation, so the attachment can be more efficient when used for mass excavation, fine grading and working in confined areas.

Availability

The Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System for Engcon tiltrotators is now available globally through the SITECH® dealer channel.
