Trimble announces upgrade kits for select Link-Belt excavators

LBX and Trimble have released Link-Belt Precision Grade upgrade kits for Link-Belt 160 X4, 245 X4 Spin Ace and 350 X4 hydraulic excavators. These kits provide all necessary components, hardware and software required to upgrade a standard machine to 2D/MG (Machine Guidance) or 2D/MC (Machine Control), or upgrade a machine with 2D/MG already installed to a 2D/MC capable machine.

The Link-Belt Precision Grade 2D/MG system uses technology from Trimble to provide the operator with visual and audible indication when they are above, below or at their desired target grade. The Link-Belt Precision Grade 2D/MC system provides these capabilities, and adds autonomous control of the boom and bucket while the operator controls the speed of the stick to maintain a consistently smooth flat or sloping surface.

Link-Belt Precision Grade offers the user up to 50 percent improvement in production, reduced backfill expenses, and increased efficiency that translates into reduced cost of ownership and operation.
