DigPilot Excavator Guidance System

dig-pilotTired of climbing in and out of the cab all day? Then a DigPilot is probably the thing you need.

DigPilot 2D (without GPS/GNSS)

The DigPilot 2D enables you to do a widely varying range of excavation work without GPS/GNSS: Level, single or dual slopes, ditches and profiles. E.g. if you choose to cut a ditch, you will be guided as you set the width, depth, the slope of the ditch etc., and the ditch will be shown on the monitor in front of you.

You can reference heights by positioning the tip of the bucket on a benchmark, or use the arm sensor to register the height from a rotating laser.

Easy to upgrade to DigPilot 3D (with GPS/GNSS)

The DigPilot 2D can easily be upgraded to 3D with GPS/GNSS. This only requires the GPS itself and new software in the DigPilot computer. When using the DigPilot GPS software there is no need for a second control panel taking up space in your cab.

Easy to install

With its wireless sensors, DigPilot is very easy to install. You need not be a qualified electrician, or connect up a lot of cables before the system can be started up. DigPilot has only one cable, to connect the power supply to the computer. Simply plug it into the cigarette lighter.

Easily moved from one machine to another

It takes only minutes to move DigPilot from one excavator to another. Simply attach a new set of brackets, and then you can move the sensors and computer
to another excavator.

Settings for 20 different excavators can be saved in the computer, each with 20 different buckets.

Easy to use
DigPilot1In developing DigPilot, great importance was attached to making it user friendly. This applies both to fitting and maintenance, and of course to what you see on the

There are large, explicit images in 2D and 3D, with clear details and accompanying text to guide you all the way. DigPilot is equally suitable for those without computer
experience and for experts.
