Hemisphere GPS Launches New Earthworks Excavator Grade Control System

Hemisphere GPS’ Earthworks X100 includes 3 ultra-rugged angle sensors and a color touchscreen terminal that’s capable of displaying the bucket teeth or tool position to within 2 centimeters. The system can be upgraded to either Earthworks X200 or X300, the full 2D and 3D excavator grade control systems capable of shaping dual-slopes and more complex design surfaces.

“Through our affordable X100 grade control system, even the smallest contractor will quickly realize the benefits of higher productivity, increased safety and the elimination of rework,” said John Bohlke, General Manager of Earthworks at Hemisphere GPS. “Contractors can bid more competitively on jobs with greater confidence and predictability and grow business profits.”

With Earthworks X100, the operator simply sets the desired grade line in the terminal, references the bucket or tool and then digs or fills to grade based on the visual feedback from the terminal. Bucket or tool position relative to grade is displayed graphically along with a large numerical cut/fill readout. Improvements to productivity and accuracy are immediate as manual grade checking is no longer necessary. The operator can remain safe and comfortable in the cab making the best use of the operating hours.

Hemisphere GPS is signing Earthworks dealer agreements in the US and Canada and is currently seeking additional product dealers. The company also plans to expand its Earthworks product portfolio by offering complementary blade solutions throughout 2011.
