Hitachi Uses Trimble Grade Control System
Trimble GSC900 Allows Precision Excavation

Trimble has announced that the Hitachi Construction Machinery’s ZX200X-5B semi-automatic excavator is now available in Japan with the GCS900 Grade Control System.

The system uses GNSS, laser, sonic, or total station technology, to position the heavy machinery’s blade or bucket in real-time, for significant reduction in material overages and improving the contractor’s productivity, the company said. The unit makes design surfaces, grades, and alignments accessible to the operator inside a cab, Trimble said.

Hitachi Construction Machinery customers can now benefit from productivity gains using this new 20t class excavator with a Trimble machine control system in either a 2D or 3D configuration, the company said. The unit also has GradeMax Plus, which allows higher grade quality, 35 to 40 percent faster, in any material type, Trimble said.

The ZX200X-5B excavator, with a Trimble GCS900 2D or 3D Grade Control System, can be ordered directly from Hitachi Construction Machinery for customers in Japan only, the company said.

A 2D Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System, which can be upgraded to a 3D Grade Control System, is an excellent first investment for contractors new to construction technology, the company said.
