    a competant operator already does all this device offers. Just something else to worry about. The price on application bit worries me

    Have used one a couple of times on our 160 volvo and so far so good. I have liked it a lot. Its just one less man you need checking grade.

    Glad to hear that you pulled the trigger. Right now we have it on a 160 and 340 volvo and we like it. I think once we put more hours on useing it and discovering what it can realy do we won't be able to live without it.

    I bought the EZ dig pro last year and it is similar. What does the Topcon unit cost?

    For what my setup gives me in return it was probably the best money I have ever spent. It eliminated one employee and still cut production time by 30+%. I kick myself everday for not getting it sooner.
