Guide to grade

Modern 2D excavator system with 3D upgrade readiness

Product Info

2D excavation essentials

The streamlined, modern X-52 excavation system is a 2D solution that gets you cost-effectively to grade.

Our ruggedized LS-B10W laser receiver, combined with compact TS-i3 tilt sensors, allows you to stay on grade without needing to restring. The GX-55 control box actively indicates where your bucket should be for each task, giving an enhanced excavating experience.

When future projects dictate GNSS location and precision, the X-52x system is easily upgradable to the full 3D-capable X-53x system. Because it utilizes the latest 500kbps Baud Rate TS-i3 sensors and MC-X1 controller, it is also fully future-proofed – ready to support more enhancements as they become available.

  • Work from an elevation reference or laser
  • Create, cut, and check complex designs from the cab
  • Easy-to-see cut/fill indicators
  • Increase safety by removing grade checkers from the trench
  • Easily upgrade to full 3D GNSS


Operator + Machine + System = One team

Today's demand for a safe site is easily achieved by incorporating our excavator systems into your daily tasks. We keep a man out of the trench and optimize digging to save you money and keep schedules on track. From digging underwater to blind cuts, we’ve got you covered with bright LED grade indicators, graphical representation of bucket position, and highly audible tones.

The X-52x excavator system gives the flexibility to use a wide array of working references: an existing surface, hub, previous cut, or rotating laser. It's as simple as making a selection and entering a cut and/or slope depth.
