Link-Belt 2D Grade Control Technology
LBX Company announced two factory-installed grade control technology options for North American 210 X4 excavator customers. The Link-Belt 2D Machine Guidance (MG) system provides an operator with visual and audible indication when they are above, below or at their desired target grade. The Link-Belt 2D Machine Control (MC) system provides the operator with not only visual and audible indication when they are above, below or at their target grade, but can also control the boom and bucket while the operator controls the speed of the stick to maintain a consistently smooth flat or sloping surface. 2D MG and 2D MC enable operators to increase their productivity by up to 50%.
