Looking for a cost-effective way to add GPS guidance to your small/medium excavator? Kommand has the solution; the GradeMetrix VR500 Excavator system from Hemisphere. As with eth GradeMetrix VR500 Dozer, this system holds a unique place in the market due to its patented VR500 receiver system.

This receiver packages all the major components into the one SmartAntenna, meaning you have only the ONE cable to install. The VR500 combines two antennas, a full constellation satellite receiver, radio, Bluetooth, and power management, all into the one unit. This allows Hemisphere to provide you with a cost-effective solution that makes sense, even for small excavators.

The VR500 comes complete with full satellite constellation capability. You are receiving data from all available sources including GPS (American), Glonass (Russian), Japanese, European and Chinese networks. You have the best possible coverage with this unit and pay no extra for this capability.

The system also comes complete with a modem built into the high-visibility screen. No need to purchase the modem separately to run NTRIP. The modem also makes remote support very simple as the screen is Windows based; you don’t need to use company specific (and costly) support subscriptions. We can support you easily using Teamviewer and similar applications, directly in the field.

Tilt Bucket functionality is also an integrated part of the system. For the cost of the additional sensor and cable you have full tilt functionality for intricate trenching, boxing out a road, or batter work.

Give us a call to see how this system can start making efficiency gains for you. Your operators can start working directly to the model and saving you on material and waste removal costs due to less overcut. You can start charging “GPS Equipped” rates for your smaller machines, and the efficiency gains will get your work done significantly faster. And all this with a 3yr warranty on the major components.

With our finance packages we can have a system on your machine for less than $400 a week and installation can be completed in less than a day. How much do you spend a week on professional survey costs to replace pegs?
