Precision Grade upgrades are available for LBX 145 X4 excavators.

Link-Belt Precision Grade, powered by Trimble Earthworks, upgrade kits are now available for Link-Belt 145 X4 excavators. New 145 X4 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 system works in unison with our proprietary hydraulic system called Spool Stroke Control. With the advancement of integrating the Trimble Earthworks system into our hydraulic system, customers get much more than an off-the-shelf aftermarket grading solution," said Adam Woods, Manager Innovation and Technology Integration for LBX. "They get a solution with next-level accuracy and controllability."
