Experience Precision with Trimble® Technology’s Compact Grading Attachments

By: Hannah Comeau

In the world of construction, precision and efficiency are paramount. SITECH Allegheny, a division of Cleveland Brothers, is proud to offer Trimble® Technology’s advanced solutions for compact grading attachments. These cutting-edge technologies, featuring 2D and 3D Trimble Earthworks grade control systems, are designed to cater to different needs, providing unparalleled accuracy and performance. Discover the key differences between the 2D and 3D Trimble Earthworks systems for compact machines and determine which solution can transform your grading projects. 

2D Grade Control for Compact Grading Attachments 

The 2D grade control system is a great starting point for contractors new to construction technology. This setup employs one or two laser receivers to adjust the blade automatically based on a laser reference. Alternatively, a cross-slope system can automatically regulate the blade’s slope, allowing the operator to control its elevation manually. The 2D system’s simple, user-friendly interface makes it easy to set up and operate, allowing for smooth and precise grading right from the start. 

Key Benefits of 2D Grade Control: 

  • Grading Precision: Achieve consistent and accurate blade control using laser references 
  • User-Friendly Interface: Simple setup and operation enable quick adoption and effective use 
  • Slope Control: Maintain blade slope automatically, enhancing efficiency and reducing manual input 

3D Grade Control for Compact Grading Attachments 

For those seeking smarter, faster, and more accurate grading, the 3D grade control system is the ideal choice. This advanced system integrates standard Connected Site functionality, bridging the gap between the office and the machine for increased efficiency. With real-time design information and live cut/fill indications displayed in the cab, operators can monitor avoidance zones, collect as-built data and maintain tighter control over safety issues. The 3D system allows precise control of blade positions, optimizing machine performance for various grading tasks and ensuring finished grade to millimeter accuracy. 

Key Benefits of 3D Grade Control: 

  • Bulk Earthworks: Visualize design information and real-time cut/fill data directly in the cab 
  • Safety Monitoring: Real-time avoidance zone monitoring enhances on-site safety 
  • As-Built Data Collection: Accurately record data as the machine cuts to grade, ensuring precision 
  • Optimized Performance: Adjust blade control settings in real-time to suit different material conditions 
  • Finished Grading: Achieve millimeter accuracy with fewer passes, reducing material costs and improving profitability
