The EZ Dig Pro is a real-time depth control system for excavators and backhoes. The one-person system provides grade control for digging a fixed depth or a slope, so no one else is needed in the excavation to check depth. Applications include: trenching; footings and foundation depths; basements; septic lines; drainage ditches; and cut-and-cover applications for a fixed depth for water, gas and cable lines. The EZ Dig Pro can be installed and calibrated in 45 minutes or less, according to the company. Sensors mounted on the excavator are calibrated to the machine. One of the three sensors includes a laser receiver, so there is no need to reset the elevation reference when the excavator is moved. The sensors are solar charged, and there is wireless RF communication between the sensors and in-cab displays, eliminating external cables. An in-cab LCD control box and see-through display panel allow the operator to watch the ditch, bucket and display in the same view.
