Product Info

Boost excavation workflows and productivity

Improve the productivity, accuracy, and profitability of your excavator projects with 3D machine control workflows. The X-53x delivers the most advanced and precise GPS positioning technology, coupled with advanced sensors, controllers, and simple on-board software. Productivity improvements of 30% or more are common – even for experienced operators.

X-53x Indicate

The X-53x Indicate system provides real-time, dynamic on-screen bucket location and design views.

  • Cut grade faster and more accurately
  • Create, cut, and check complex designs from the cab
  • Increase safety by removing the grade checker from the trench

X-53x Auto

Upgrading to the “Automatic” system helps operators automatically control the digging depth and bucket angle when inside a working window. Operators can easily execute imported design files or create a custom design from the cab of the excavator using the bucket to take topo shots.

  • Automatic system engages inside a configurable working window
  • Capability to use imported designs or create them “on the fly”
  • Lock bucket attack angle
  • Bucket follows complex designs by simply pulling back on the left joystick
  • Support for boom automation in tilt/rotator applications
