More Flexibility with 2D and 3D Machine Control for Excavators with Tilt Rotator Attachments

Construction companies can save on both fuel and excavating time/cost by adding an iCON excavate machine control system to their tilt rotator equipped excavators. The iCON excavate system by Leica Geosystems with tilt rotator support reduces operator down time by eliminating the need for repeated grade checks to see how much cut or fill remains, and increases safety for co-workers who no longer need to enter dangerous zones.

Easy control in the cab

Because iCON excavate displays the actual position of the bucket, it brings real-time cut and fill indications directly in the cab. The operator-friendly user interface with graphical colour display provides guidance to desired grade and simplifies operation of a complex attachment. Leica Geosystems’ machine control system for excavators uses modern sensor technology for accurate positioning and earth moving results.

Unique PowerSnap to switch panels between machines

In addition, the iCON excavate solution features the unique patented PowerSnap functionality for fast exchange of control panels between machines. iCON also supports iCON telematics, which offers users easy data transfer from office to machines, as well as remote support and basic fleet management via the iCON telematics website.

Robust components and powerful software for high performance on the job

Designed to increase productivity and efficiency of machine operations, iCON excavate iXE2 and iXE3 systems use high performance sensors, combining ease-of-use and unrivalled flexibility with powerful software. Contractors can now control even more machines in their fleet reliably, which allows them to increase their return on machine investment and further improve their performance on the job.


The new software version with tilt rotator support is available worldwide immediately. Ordering information and details on system integration for OEM partners are available from all authorised Leica Geosystems representatives.
