In-Field Templates Guide the Operator
User-friendly menus on the CB450 Control Box allow the operator to create an in-field template for a particular excavation task and begin working on that project immediately. The display software provides step-by-step instructions to create an in-field design template for excavating to a fixed depth, a depth with slope, an alignment or a profile. For operators with little to no experience with machine control, it is a very easy way to create an alignment similar to traditional methods that use staking and stringlines.
Trimble introduced GCSFlex for excavators in 2011 as an affordable, easy-to-use machine control system for owner operators and small to mid-sized contractors who want to increase their productivity and become more competitive. With several flexible system configuration options available, contractors can select the sensor options that fit their job site needs at a price point that fits their budget.
The new Trimble GCSFlex Grade Control System is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2012 through Trimble's worldwide SITECH® Technology Dealer Channel.
