The main reason we got into Machine Control is because it is becoming a standard method for building roads and site works and we do not want to be left behind, plus the fact that I am the main surveyor and I am tired of pounding stakes.
We purchased Topcon equipment because of their competitive pricing, support network, and reputation for quality and innovative technical advances, such as the first to use Glonass satellites, laser augmented mm GPS, and now smoother high speed dozer control.
Machine Control has allowed us to increase production along with less material overrun. We can calculate accurate quantities using the same surface models that are used to guide the equipment.
