Universal Compatibility

Crawler or wheeled? Komatsu fan or mixed fleet? Vintage model or fresh off the assembly line? Seasoned operator or one who’s just starting out? No matter the scenario, our kit is versatile enough to cater to all your needs. 

No file conversion needed

Got Topcon or Trimble systems in your fleet? No matter you’ve got Land XML files, Topcon or Trimble formats, our kit can integrate seamlessly with your existing 3D systems, eliminating the need for any file conversions.

Komatsu 3D Machine Guidance system converts files from Topcon, Trimble, Leica and others within the tablet.
Komatsu 3D Machine Guidance has a payload meter functionality to weigh volume within the bucket.

Dynamic Payload Metering

Relying on guesswork for loading materials can incur overweight fines. The dynamic payload meter option provides real-time weight measurements, maximising truck capacity and avoiding overweight penalties.

The 3D Machine Guidance system from Komatsu has proven to be an incredibly cost-effective solution that competes with more expensive systems in terms of performance. Since we fit the kit on our Volvo EC220, it has been working non-stop. Now the operator can work on-site alone, with no extra surveying work needed.

2D and 3D Guidance Mode

Working underground or beneath powerlines? The 2D mode is an excellent alternative. It provides real-time information on the bucket’s position relative to the desired depth or slope levels. Complex infrastructure project? 3D mode has got you covered.
