Dirt Simple machine control technology helps all operators

Machine control technology is used to help accurately guide, position and automate all heavy construction machinery. The technology uses the same GPS you find in your car and smartphone. This gives your machine a live ‘position’ in space and time, simply meaning it helps you get your job done with less effort and reduces wasteful movements of your machine and material. Most importantly it improves safety and speed while removing unplanned rework.
