Features and Benefits

Get up and running quickly and get the job done faster. Use your Trimble Siteworks Positioning System as a rover to measure up projects and create in-field designs, then hook it up to your excavator to carry out the work.

Powerful Surveying Tool, On and Off Machine

Now you can build jobs and check grade with the same system, eliminate the need for a surveyor and keep your in-field work in the field.

Portable and Easy to Use

An accessible entry-point into construction surveying and machine guidance with a system that is built to be moved between multiple excavators and job sites.

Feature Packed, High ROI

A simple, yet powerful option that is easy to install. Get more value out of your Trimble Siteworks Software subscription without the need for additional training—it’s the best of both worlds, grade control and construction surveying.

Connected Construction

Stay connected, wherever your work takes you. Simply add a SIM card into the data collector to send designs between the office and field, access remote support and keep projects moving forward while you are on the move.

How It Works

Go from grade checking and layout to machine operation and back again, moving between sites and excavators for a system that is always fully utilized.

All you need is:

  • Trimble SPS986 or Trimble R780 GNSS Smart Antenna with tilt compensation
  • Machine kit
  • Any data collector that supports Siteworks 

Anyone with a compatible Siteworks system can begin using it on-machine quickly and easily with just the addition of a machine kit and a software module license.
