The New 3D Grader from Bobcat

16th August, 2017


Bobcat has partnered with Trimble to bring the world’s first 3D grade control solution for compact equipment to the market. This advanced technology makes it easy to complete levelling and grading work quickly, efficiently and cost effectively.

The method of grading which at present is most common in the UK requires the use of a large 360 excavator, a grade check team and a highly experienced plant operator. This grading technique is time intensive, labour intensive and is usually inaccurate.

The new Bobcat and Trimble 3D grader makes grading easy, quick and precise with its laser guided approach. Now, you can gain all of the benefits of heavy laser guided equipment without the massive scale and the huge cost.

At MTS Plant Hire & Sales, we believe that this is a welcome move that will deliver humongous benefits to the industry as a whole. No matter your industry be it construction or agriculture, you have a lot to benefit from this advanced solution from Bobcat.

Advantages of 3D Grader System

  • This 3D grading solution can be used with Bobcat 96” and Bobcat 108” heavy duty grader attachments.
  • It is easy to use, increases productivity and improves accuracy. This reduces rework, staking as well as checking.
  • This solution helps improve material usage.
  • The 3D grader allows the operator to grade ditches, contours and valleys as necessary.
  • Contractors can now complete the grading process sooner and much more cost effectively, which has a positive impact on your bottom line.
  • The 3D grader system is easy to install and interchange.
  • For operators, the 3D grader offers higher accuracy and is much more ergonomic where fingertip control is concerned.
