SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 23, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that it has been selected as Liebherr's construction technology partner for its upcoming Austrian Roadshow beginning in April 2015. The Liebherr Roadshow will travel through Austria and the Czech Republic making stops in five locations. At each location, visitors will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the latest Liebherr machines equipped with the Trimble® GCS900 Grade Control System and the Trimble Loadrite® weighing solution.
Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System
Trimble 3D machine control has revolutionized the way earthworks are performed. The GCS900 Grade Control System is a cutting-edge earthmoving grade control system that puts design surfaces, grades and alignments inside the cab. The system uses GNSS, GPS, laser, sonic or total station technology to accurately position the blade or bucket in real time, significantly reducing material overages and dramatically improving the contractor's productivity and efficiency.
Liebherr is Trimble Ready
Trimble will demonstrate the Trimble GCS900 Grade Control Systems on a Trimble Ready® crawler tractor Liebherr PR736. Liebherr machines with the Trimble Ready option have the cabling and brackets for Trimble grade control components already installed. A Trimble Ready machine from Liebherr helps reduce Grade Control System installation time, simplifies the installation and makes moving the system from one machine to another easy. The Trimble Ready option is available for Liebherr PR714, PR724, PR736 and PR754 crawler tractors.
Trimble Loadrite Weighing Solutions
The Trimble LOADRITE weighing system for excavators provides equipment operators, site foremen and project managers with accurate payload weights. The system allows them to ensure that machines are loaded to optimal capacity and that loads are accurately recorded. The Trimble Loadrite system will be shown on a Liebherr material handling machine LH 35 M.
See and Use Trimble Technology on Liebherr Machines
The Liebherr Roadshow presents an opportunity for contractors to see many of the Trimble's Connected Site® solutions in action on a variety of Liebherr construction machines.
