Leica Geosystems, Hidromek integrate machine control solutions for graders

20 March 2020

Leica Geosystems, a Hexagon company, has announced that its Leica Ready machine control kits will now be offered on Hidromek motor graders, a globally known manufacturer of construction machinery.

The Hidromek HMK600MG grader will now be supported with a new cable kit for the Leica iCON iGG2, iGG3 and iGG4 machine control solutions for motor grader guidance. The new integration, with no hydraulic kit needed, improves the working efficiency and productivity of grader operators.

 “With our new working relationship with Hidromek, we are grateful to bring new opportunities to machine operators worldwide now and in the future,” says Leica Geosystems machine control director of product management Kris Maas. “With this integration, we reaffirm our commitment to bringing more efficient and productive, and safer solutions to the heavy construction industry.”

Leica iCON grade solutions for motor graders offer new site preparation possibilities. The system regulates the elevation and cross slope by means of robust and high-tech sensors. Improving productivity as well as saving material costs, the system is ideal for contractors working in highway construction, site preparation, road maintenance and other public works, and housing and subdivision development. Any construction project where motor graders are used for preparing sub-grade for finished layers can benefit from this technology.
