Liebherr has chosen Trimble as its construction technology partner for the upcoming Austrian Roadshow beginning in April 2015. To travel through Austria and the Czech Republic making stops in five locations, the roadshow will showcase the latest Liebherr machines equipped with the Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System and the Trimble Loadrite weighing system.

Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System

The GCS900 Grade Control System is a cutting-edge earthmoving grade control system that revolutionises how earthworks are performed by putting design surfaces, grades and alignments inside the cab. The system reduces material overages and dramatically improves the contractor's productivity and efficiency by using GNSS, GPS, laser, sonic or total station technology to accurately position the blade or bucket in real-time.

Trimble will demonstrate the Trimble GCS900 Grade Control Systems on a Trimble Ready Liebherr PR736 crawler tractor. 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, enabling them to ensure machines are loaded to optimal capacity and loads are accurately recorded. The Trimble Loadrite system will be shown on a Liebherr material handling machine LH 35 M at the roadshow.

Trimble technology on Liebherr machines

The Liebherr Roadshow presents an opportunity for contractors to see many of Trimble’s Connected Site solutions in action on a variety of Liebherr construction machines. Roadshow visitors will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience and also discuss with specialists about the advantages of the Connected Site solutions developed to optimise and integrate operations across the construction site and the office.
