Leica releases excavator systems


Heerbrugg, Switzerland: Leica Geosystems released Leica PowerDigger Lite, its new entry-level single slope guidance system for all types of excavators. The company also announced its next-generation 2D cutting-edge guidance system for excavators, Leica PowerDigger 2D.

Leica PowerDigger 2D expands Leica Geosystems’ patented unique PowerSnap concept, providing total flexibility and interchangeability of machine control panels and sensors between machinery such as excavators, dozers and graders. On the other hand, PowerDigger Lite is an easy-to-use, economic control system that perfectly meets the needs of contractors looking for economical entry-level machine control systems. Being designed for single slope applications, PowerDigger Lite is suitable for mini excavators and backhoes.

Leica PowerDigger Lite is the new standard entry-level system of the Leica PowerDigger portfolio of excavator systems. It is targeted at single slope applications such as trenching, grading and pipe-laying and can be mounted on any excavator. Leica PowerDigger 2D allows multiple elevation and slopes to be constructed, at any orientation without resetting the machine or laser height reference. Additionally, Leica PowerDigger 2D provides unique safety features and the new PowerDriller function – suitable for maintaining verticality for excavator drilling attachments. Both systems are based on PowerDigger hardware platform.

Leica PowerDigger Lite and PowerDigger 2D are available now through all authorised Leica Geosystems’ Machine Control representatives, or the Scanlaser distribution network at https://www.scanlaser.eu .
