Hire 2D & 3D GPS

LASER GUIDED
BULLDOZERS

We use Topcon guidance systems in many of the models available for dozer hire, which means, regardless of user experience, you can do a great job every time.

Depending on the model for hire, we integrate either a 2D laser system or 3D gps system. The result is reduced operation times and more accurate operations. You can find out more on our Intelligent Machine Control page here:

Why use Intelligent Machine Control (IMC)?

The fully automatic modes made possible by our Topcon systems make dozer operations greatly faster and more efficient. That means a shorter operation time for your project, helping you meet even tight project deadlines.

Not got a skilled dozer operator on the team? No problem – Intelligent Machine Control means complex excavations can be completed by drivers of any skill level.

How does Intelligent Machine
Control (IMC) work?

The seamless process behind 3D laser bulldozer control

The process begins by uploading a computer-aided design (CAD) file to the Topcon laser system controller in the bulldozer’s cab. Outside the dozer, a point-of-reference base station is established to calculate the bulldozer’s hieght and position.

The system will then compare the actual blade position, the slope and the uploaded design – contantly making corrections to send to the machine’s hydraulics. Those computations guide the changes your dozer makes to its blade’s elevation and cross-slope.

But it’s not all left to the computer. The cab-based operator sees an overview of the design surfaces, alignments, grades & GNSS status via the in-cab monitor. That information enables the operator to decide where to drive and how much material still requires shifting.
To switch between automatic and manual modes, there’s a simple push-button on the blade control lever.
