A sunny Hillhead!

CAT D7E & Trimble on the KOREC stand

Hillhead 2010 has just finished and this years glorious weather was appreciated by visitors and exhibitors alike.

Aided by Trimble and Finning, the KOREC stand was busy for the duration with the full Trimble range of Machine Control and Site Positioning Systems on show, all backed up by KOREC’s expertise.

As predicted, the Finning supplied Caterpillar D7E with Trimble’s GCS900 system, attracted lots of attention. KOREC’s Peter Brooks explains, “We asked Finning if they could help us out at this years show by providing a Caterpillar D7E for our stand. This machine – the first-ever electric drive track-type tractor D7E consuming up to 20 percent less fuel while increasing the productivity by 10 percent – reflects just what the business is all about, innovation and technology and ultimately sustainability.”

There was also a huge amount of interest in the Trimble Site Positioning Systems demonstrated the stand. Contractors were keen to learn how the SPS products can utilise GPS or Robotic Total Stations to help them improve their efficiency on site with the use of the Trimble SCS900 Site Controller Software.
