Compact equipment gets machine control boost with Topcon MC-Mobile system
Topcon has introduced the new MC-Mobile portable machine control solution for compact equipment. Based on the Topcon MC-X machine control platform, MC-Mobile offers the user experience and competitive performance benefits of full-size machine control guidance solutions for compact excavators, skid steers and compact track loaders (CTLs).
The new system offers design, build and check functionalities for users, as well as a feature-rich software experience. Modular components can be used by operators for numerous applications such as grade checking, creating designs on the fly, and self-performing site layouts without traditional staking.
Displays and other components are designed to be easily shared across numerous machines in owned or rental fleet environments. These pieces can also be moved from grade checking/layout rover pole to machine and back.
"MC-Mobile is a simplified, yet comprehensive machine control and site work solution for any contractor that uses compact equipment," said Jamie Williamson, executive vice president, Topcon Positioning Group. "It's easy to set up and use, it's affordable, and it offers the same competitive benefits of machine control solutions designed for larger equipment. MC-Mobile enables contractors to get jobs done faster and more accurately, eliminating costly rework and allowing them to reallocate resources to other tasks on the job site. MC-Mobile simplifies many tasks, giving business owners more control of their budgets and operations, creating downstream value and efficiency for operations of any size."
