GPS on wheel loaders

wheelloader-250wDozers and motor graders are the machines most people enhance with GPS/GNSS machine control – it makes sense, they do the ‘hard yards’ but what about small jobsites or confined spaces? Until Trimble brought out its GCS900 version 12.81 nobody had thought to try GPS/GNSS control on wheel loaders but it makes sense when dozers and motor graders are too large to manoeuvre in your space.

Jeff Drake, the business area manager for Trimble Machine Control Systems, talks to Equipment World about GPS on a wheel loader, and the benefits that can come from it.
