Guidance system Ready Kits are offered for 14 to 30 t excavators

Doosan has announced that it will supply Leica, Trimble and Xsite 2D and 3D Ready Kits to meet the increasing demand for machine guidance systems.

The technology is compatible with the company’s 14 to 30 t range of wheeled and crawler excavators and can be ordered from its factory through Doosan Smart Solutions. 

While the Ready Kits can differ depending on the model and region concerned, Doosan said its collaboration with the system manufacturers means that customers in Europe will be able to order excavators with the kits pre-installed.

According to the company its offering of Ready Kits, which are fitted on customer machines at its Customisation Centre in the Netherlands, enable faster and simplified installation of the guidance systems with no welding, repainting, drilling or assembly required.

Doosan said its service offers flexibility as customers are not obliged to install the complete 2D or 3D system, but can add it later if they choose.

The machine guidance systems give operators access to design surfaces, grades and alignments on a display inside the excavator cab. Using GNSS, GPS, laser, sonic or total station technology, the systems accurately position the blade or bucket in real time, which reduces costs related to material overages and errors and improves productivity, fuel consumption and efficiency.
