Key Features of Our Grade Control Systems

SITECH Southwest offers three control systems that work for compact equipment. These are Trimble Earthworks, Trimble Siteworks and Trimble Earthworks GO! 2.0. Each has unique features that make them ideal for particular applications.

Trimble Earthworks for Compact Machines

This tailored solution makes working with your compact equipment easier. It has a touchscreen display with custom interface elements for small equipment. Each owner can customize the interface perspective to fit their workflows for better productivity.

The display includes colorful graphics to enhance the operator experience. Intuitive controls make the solution simple to integrate with no learning curve so you can get jobs done in one pass. The system allows automatic file transfer through WorksManager to bring models to your equipment.

Configure this solution to suit your operation in four ways:

  • Blade-mounted dual/single GPS system
  • Dual/single laser system
  • Universal total station system
  • Dual/single sonic system

All configurations use a display, sensor and electronic control, but you can switch out other components like laser receivers, sonic tracers, smart antennas or machine targets.

Trimble Siteworks

Trimble Siteworks gives you a modern construction surveying system that works for your compact machinery. The system allows you to work with complex data and 3D files to create in-depth views of your job site. The software offers a modern interface with colorful graphics and natural gestures, making it convenient for many applications, including creating models you can use for guiding compact machinery for grading tasks.

Earthworks GO! 2.0

Another option for grade control for compact equipment is Earthworks GO! 2.0. This system is made for compact machine attachments and is simple to install with control and sensor boxes that mount to your equipment using magnets. This system minimizes your capital expense while offering expandability and upgrades to keep your investment valuable. It is an excellent choice for small contractors and owner-operators.

Trimble Earthworks GO! 2.0 is highly portable, allowing you to use it with multiple attachments. Save several equipment profiles, so you only have to set it up once. The control system runs on iOS and Android, so you can use it with your existing mobile device. The interface is designed for use in bright daylight and includes setup tutorials to get you running faster.

The system includes three supported configurations depending on the requirements of your operation. These are:

  • Dual laser system
  • Single laser system
  • Cross slope only

Each configuration only has minor differences, allowing you to switch between them or add features as necessary to suit your work.
