Grade Control for Dozers

Running on time, versus out of time.

Trimble Earthworks for Dozers

Helps new and veteran operators do things right the first time, and in less time than ever before.

Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform Cuts Confusion & Costs

The Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform helps dozer operators cut the confusion that leads to wasted time. Reengineered from the ground up, our innovative, next generation grade control platform helps make you more efficient and productive.

Trimble Earthworks Software

Trimble Earthworks for Dozers is an entirely new grade control software application that is intuitive, easy-to-learn and runs on the Android operating system.

Trimble Dual GNSS

Trimble, a leader in precision measurement technology, pioneered the Dual GNSS solution to meet the needs of the construction industry. Watch the video to see how it works!

Horizonal Steering Control

Automatically control the machine to follow any horizontal alignment from the 3D model. This allows the operator to focus on grade, machine productivity and safety rather than worrying about steering, for increased situational awareness, better accuracy and improved productivity with decreased overlap and fewer passes.

Trimble Configuration Options for Dozers

3D – Highway & railway construction
– Airport construction
– Concrete pours and slab replacement
– residential and commercial site construction
Single GNSSMeasures the position of the bucket and compares that to design data for rough grading and mass excavation on complex design surfaces
Dual GNSSMeasures the exact position, cross slope and heading of the blade for fine grading on steep slopes and complex design surfaces
Universal Total Station
Total station based system for extreme accuracy for lift and layer control, material monitoring, or where GNSS is not the ideal solution because of overhead obstructions
2D– Road and highway projects
– Land reclamation projects
– Dam and reservoir construction
– New infrastructure projects
Cross-slope OnlyCross-slope control system to be used on motor graders for fine grading work for road maintenance, ditches and slope work
Single Elevation Plus Cross-slopeSingle control system uses a laser or sonic receiver to control the lift of the machine blade and the cross-slope for flat, slopework, and finished grading

Dual Elevation
Dual control system that uses a laser receiver and a sonic tracer for higher accuracy lift control. Blade edge can be controlled independently or linked

3D Grade Control for Dozers

Smarter, faster and more accurate grading, with standard Connected Site functionality to bring the office and the machine together for increased efficiency.

Bulk Earthworks

  • Display design information and live cut/fill indications in the cab
  • Monitor avoidance zones with real-time information
  • Collect as-built data as the machine cuts to grade
  • Keep tighter control over safety issues
  • See precisely where dirt is being moved on site


  • Determine the position of each tip of the blade and compare it to the design elevation to compute cut or fill to grade
  • Drive the valves for automatic blade control or view in-cab lightbars based on the cut or fill data
  • Control the machine’s automatic blade control settings in real-time
  • Adjust the machine’s response to differing material conditions
  • Optimize the machine’s performance for a particular grading task

Finished Grading

  • Achieve finished grade to millimeter accuracy with fewer passes
  • Place finished grade materials more accurately and in a shorter time period
  • Keep the material costs to a minimum and realize better profits

2D Grade Control for Dozers

A 2D Trimble system is an excellent first investment for contractors new to construction technology.


  • Use a single laser and laser receiver to measure the lift and tilt of the blade
  • Add another laser receiver or a slope sensor to measure the slope of the blade
  • Get elevation and slope guidance to get to grade quickly and accurately
  • Easily upgrade to a 3D grade control system
