We use Topcon guidance systems in many of the models available for dozer hire, which means, regardless of user experience, you can do a great job every time.
Depending on the model for hire, we integrate either a 2D laser system or 3D gps system. The result is reduced operation times and more accurate operations. You can find out more on our Intelligent Machine Control page here:
The fully automatic modes made possible by our Topcon systems make dozer operations greatly faster and more efficient. That means a shorter operation time for your project, helping you meet even tight project deadlines.
Not got a skilled dozer operator on the team? No problem – Intelligent Machine Control means complex excavations can be completed by drivers of any skill level.Contact us

The seamless process behind 3D laser bulldozer control
The process begins by uploading a computer-aided design (CAD) file to the Topcon laser system controller in the bulldozer’s cab. Outside the dozer, a point-of-reference base station is established to calculate the bulldozer’s hieght and position.
The system will then compare the actual blade position, the slope and the uploaded design – contantly making corrections to send to the machine’s hydraulics. Those computations guide the changes your dozer makes to its blade’s elevation and cross-slope.
But it’s not all left to the computer. The cab-based operator sees an overview of the design surfaces, alignments, grades & GNSS status via the in-cab monitor. That information enables the operator to decide where to drive and how much material still requires shifting.
To switch between automatic and manual modes, there’s a simple push-button on the blade control lever.
