    Hey all. I’m a smaller contractor been on my own for 5 years now and growing my business every year. I’m considering joining the gps/machine control world. Just curious before I make a bunch of phone calls does anybody know what it costs roughly to buy a base and rover and cost to put it on a dozer? I have a 323f excavator which is pretty much ready. I have a d6r which had topcon on it but I would be looking into Trimble. Not sure if it costs a lot to put it in the d6r if it would be worth it but I’m looking at buying a newer d6n to add to my fleet which would be ARO ready.

    I'll be watching this. It seems that lasers are just about a thing of the past.
