iDig 2D Excavator Grade Control

Now we can send one person out to operate the machine to complete site cuts, dig drains & auger holes, without needing someone onsite to check depths or grades. The system is very easy to use so you just set your grade and away you go, it’s so much more productive. As with any new technology, you’re always a bit nervous to begin with, but we’ve found you really can’t go wrong with it. We’re self-sufficient and can work anything out without additional support.

The iDig solution is too easy really – I just establish my level, dial it in and off I go! It really has saved us so much time and easily paid for itself in a short period. Getting in and out of the cab to check grade may not sound like a big deal, but anyone in the business knows it gets old pretty quickly

For the jobs we do, there’s no engineered 3D design that you need for more advanced machine control systems to work. We have the reduced level and the batter ratio, as required, so I needed a system that could suit the type of work we do. We can do everything with this system including batters, level sites, depths, falls, culvits and water troughs or tanks on farms. The team at Aptella has been great – we’re a pretty technologically disadvantaged bunch and they can help us out with everything either on the phone or coming out to see us.
