Grade control system for road resurfacing
By using the GCS900 Grade Control System on a milling machine (or cold planer), operators can control the precise cutting depth of the mill, which means you are less likely to overcut the surface or require additional asphalt or concrete material in the repaving process. Cutting depth control also can reduce the number of passes required, the need for additional grading, and wear on the milling machine and blade. Trimble Navigation Ltd. www.trimble.com.Circle 5.

Converts from rock to core drilling
Designed for straight-line drilling on a level subgrade, the Model 240B combo drill system caters to both rock drilling and core drilling applications. The conversion process requires just a few simple tools, and the unit does not need to be anchored to the concrete when core drilling — eliminating setup time. It is operated from the subgrade, keeping the machine and user out of traffic lanes. An optional conversion kit allows it to switch from horizontal to vertical drilling.
