Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, and LiuGong Dressta Machinery, a supplier of heavy construction equipment, have announced the release of a new Leica Ready factory kit for the TD-15M and TD-16N dozers.
To simplify the machine control installation process for Dressta dozer customers, the two companies now offer the TD-15M and TD16N dozers preinstalled with the ready kit for Leica Geosystems’ 2D and 3D machine control systems at the LiuGong Dressta Machinery factory in Stalowa Wola, Poland.
“This partnership allows us to provide customers with a ‘plug and play’ upgrade to 3D machine control for Dressta’s cutting-edge dozers as well as access to the expertise of both companies while guaranteeing an effortless purchasing experience,” says Rainer Bippen, OEM Director at Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon.
The company says that the factory kit includes all the components (main brackets, cables, junction box, radio modem, 4G antennas and sensors) required to ensure the dozer is ready to install the Leica MC1 grading solution directly upon machine delivery.
“By purchasing dozers with the machine control kit directly from the manufacturer, customers benefit from seamless delivery, simple installation and expanded support. The result is increased productivity and uptime, and reduced daily operating expenses,” says Bartosz Kozik Sales Director at LiuGong Dressta Machinery.
