Trimble and Doosan Infracore North America announced that Doosan will offer the Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform for Excavators as an optional factory-installed machine control solution for the North American market. 

Doosan will offer a 2D machine control factory-installed option that includes a 10-inch Android tablet display running the Trimble Earthworks software application. This option includes Trimble hardware, designed and tested for harsh conditions often found on construction sites.

With Trimble Earthworks, contractors can take advantage of integrated 2D grade control with automatics for Doosan excavators, allowing operators to create smooth, flat, or sloped surfaces more easily. When the excavator is placed in Autos mode, the operator controls the stick, and Trimble Earthworks controls the boom and bucket to stay on grade, reducing overcut and increasing production. By automating excavator operation, Trimble Earthworks allows operators to achieve grade consistently, with high accuracy and in less time. Customers should check with their local Doosan equipment dealer and confirm if this option is available for their preferred model.

Factory-installed Trimble machine control for Doosan crawler excavators is now available in North America from the Doosan dealer network. Customers can work with their Doosan dealer to upgrade their 2D system to 3D through a local SITECH dealer.
