Having our own surveyors on staff eliminates delays in getting projects started and keeping them on schedule. Schlouch Incorporateds use of Leica Robotic Total Stations, GPS (Global Positioning System) and fully equipped field vehicles ensure accuracy and problem-free excavation resulting in quality, productivity and savings on every job.
Global Positioning System
Schlouch Incorporated has installed Trimble RTK Global Positioning Systems (GPS) throughout it’s entire fleet of equipment including various models of scrapers and articulated dump trucks. In addition, there are 30 portable GPS rover units in operation for instant grade and location surveys to assist all earthwork and utility work. Schlouch also maintains a combination of base station and virtual reference systems to operate up to ten GPS sites at the same time.
With these systems, the machine operator has real time information right in the cab.
This assists with the following:
- increases efficiencies
- eliminates rework
- improves quality of production
- decreases project time frame
- improves safety
Sitech Technologies installs the GPS systems and provides training for Schlouch operators. The Trimble GPS system is an automatic earthmoving grade control system that puts design surfaces, grades and alignments inside the cab.
