    What is the best combo GPS system with mid size Dozer? Own a small sitework company & need a simple but reliable combo Dozer/GPS system. We install foundation pads, parking lots, lay down yards & some roads. Have been using Leica lasers & having surveyor set cut/fill stakes to this point.

    Tk you

    I like Kamatsu. There gps system is easy to use and there are no poles on the blade. I just take the data collector in and out of the cab each time and set up is easy.

    I like the Trimble system more than the Topcon. Topcon has more sensors and worse service where I am. If you are looking for a midsize, I would recommend getting the automatic controls.
