Vermeer introduces Trimble Ready Terrain Leveler
Trimble and Vermeer announced the introduction of a Trimble Ready factory option for the new Vermeer T1255III Direct Drive Terrain Leveler surface excavation machine (SEM). Vermeer T1255III SEMs that ship from the factory Trimble Ready makes it faster and easier to install a Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System, which can reduce the cost and complexity of the installation.
The Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System uses GPS to control cutting head depth and pitch. Operators can cut to the surface mine plan more precisely and eliminate rapid changes in cutting depth, which can impact productivity. Machine steering coordinates can also be provided by GCS900 to reduce human error for cutting head overlap and maximise the efficiency of the machine. In addition, the mine operator can set parameters where the machine can and cannot cut using a 3D constructible model and machine control. The Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System for Vermeer T1255III Direct Drive Terrain Leveler SEMs is available globally through the SITECH dealer channel.
