The company says that the iCON site excavator solution introduces three new components: a new software application, a new dual GNSS receiver and an optional communication device.

The iCON site excavator application is available as stand-alone software or as an add-on within the existing and well-established iCON site platform. When used as an add-on, Leica Geosystems says that it enables a new workflow for on- and off-machine tasks.

Magnus Thibblin, President of Machine Control at Leica Geosystems, commented, “The Leica iCON site excavator is a very flexible and easy-to-use machine control solution which opens the door to digital construction for small- and medium-sized heavy construction companies.

“Now, compact excavators can contribute to small or large projects with efficiency powered by Leica Geosystems’ machine control functionality. This sets contractors on a path toward autonomy, enabling them to do earthmoving and detailed grading tasks more efficiently and sustainably.”
