Well read on to find out . . .

Ridgway Rentals – at The Cutting Edge of New Technologies

At Ridgway Rentals, we have the very latest technology GPS Dozers and 360° Excavators available to hire all over the UK.

All our Intelligent machines are factory fitted with a system that uses GPS technology to guide the machines incredibly accurately allowing jobs to get completed much faster.

What is GPS Control – The Technical Bit

The machines come with a fully factory installed 3D Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) which includes a cab top GNSS antenna, Stroke sensing hydraulic cylinders, a chassis mounted enhanced inertial measuring unit (IMU+) and a touch screen control monitor inside the cab.

Why is Factory Fitted Better?

Factory Fitted GPS components are a much more robust solution, add-on components (like TopCon & Trimble applications) can involve fragile sensors bolted on where they can get damaged
Factory fitted eliminates the daily hassles of installing and removing antennas and cables and the wear associated with it.
