Grade Control for Motor Graders
One and Done.
Leave a finished grade the first time, every time.
Mastless Motor Grader
Eliminate masts and cables traditionally located on the blade for maximum range of motion needed for steep slopes and complex designs. This configuration—available only on select machines—decreases the risk of damage to the machine, keeps valuable antennas safer and reduces the time needed to remove and reinstall them each day.
Make More Progress. And Fewer Waves.
Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform helps operators of all levels leave a quality surface in their tracks. Trimble Earthworks for motor graders is more than future forward. It’s fast forward. The next generation system gives you a first-pass finish that’s second to none.Trimble Earthworks is now available in a subscription model with flexible terms to modernize your equipment with no large upfront cost.
Trimble Earthworks Software
Trimble Earthworks for Motor Graders 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 and why you need it!

Configuration Options for Motor Graders
|3D||Single GNSS||Measures the position and slope of the blade and compares that to design data for fine grading on complex design surfaces|
|Dual GNSS||Measures the exact position, cross slope and heading of the blade for fine grading on steep slopes and complex design surfaces|
|Universal Total Station (UTS)||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||Cross-slope Only||Cross-slope control system to be used on motor graders for fine grading work for road maintenance, ditches and slope work|
|Single Elevation Plus Cross-slope||Single 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 Motor Graders
Trimble 3D grade control can be installed on motor graders to put the site plan - design surfaces, grades and alignments - inside the cab.
- Accurately measure the position and blade slope with the single GNSS antenna configuration
- Measure the exact position, cross slope and the heading of the blade with dual GNSS
- Achieve finished grade to millimeter accuracy with fewer passes
- Place finished grade materials more accurately and in a shorter time period, keeping material costs to a minimum and realizing better profits
