Trimble has introduced the Loadrite X2350 payload management system for excavators—a dynamic onboard weighing system to optimize bucket loads, track loadout tonnage and monitor cycle times. The system is claimed to improve excavator productivity by quickly, easily and accurately weighing the material in the bucket and displaying the payload information on an easy-to-read indicator in the cab. It is designed to allow operational efficiencies for many excavator loading applications, including mass earthworks, quarrying and mining. Project managers and machine operators can use the X2350 to accurately measure and record tons per hour, cycle times and total tonnage moved by excavators and trucks. Knowing accurate load cycle counts allows for more effective management of excavators and material. In-field time-stamped printed reports additionally monitor material inventories and production for easy reporting of loading activity throughout the day.
