Doosan will now offer the Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform for Excavators as an optional factory-installed machine control solution for the North American market.

Trimble Earthworks is a grade control solution designed to make grading more accurate, faster and easier in a range of applications, including residential and commercial sites, trenches, embankments, ditches and finished slope work.

When the excavator is placed in Autos mode, the operator controls the stick and Trimble Earthworks controls the boom and bucket to stay on grade, reducing overcut and increasing production. 

Now available to order in North America from the Doosan dealer network, Doosan offers a 2D machine control factory-installed option that includes a 10-inch Android tablet display running the Trimble Earthworks software application. 

“We’re excited to partner with Trimble because it will help expand our Doosan excavator technology offerings and boost our customers’ productivity,” said Jaeuk Kim, Doosan’s director of product management. “Doosan crawler excavator customers can enhance their trenching accuracy with the increased technology, contributing to an improved ROI. And our dealers can now offer this directly from the factory to our customers.”

Contractors can work with their Doosan dealer to upgrade their 2D system to 3D through a local SITECH dealer. SITECH is Trimble’s global distribution network and local Doosan dealer technology partner, providing installation services, personalized training and local technical support for Trimble construction technology.

“Trimble and Doosan are working together to make it easier for contractors to benefit from construction technology,” said Tom Austin, OEM business development manager for Trimble Civil Construction. “Our mutual customers will benefit from the collaboration between Doosan and Trimble with improved productivity, less down time and faster ROI.”
