1 Trimble GCSFlex for Excavators

2  New Heavy and Highway GCSFlex Product Family  “System in a Case” design –2D excavator system –All system components, cables, brackets in single case  Targets Excavators : –The untapped masses, non-adopted –The hurdles to adoption which we’re trying to overcome with this customer base are: –Investment /cost – system price, infrastructure, people –MC Complexity – infrastructure, design files, services –For owned, leased and rented machines –Doesn’t mean large contractors won’t buy this as well

3 Machine Control Product Positioning Price Features and Customer Value GCS900 CCS900 GCS600 (2D and 3D) Compact machines (“Mini’s) Small jobs, Rentals H&H 2D Excavators Rental machines Small / Medium jobs H&H Trimble Ready Machines Medium / Large Jobs Connected Sites

4 GCSFlex Customer  (Example) Contractor of the Year – Equipment World magazine –Characteristics:  Owner operator / small site contractors  Annual revenues between $3-$15 million  Own at least five ride-on construction machines  May rent additional machines over purchasing

5 GCSFlex Target Applications  Target Applications (e.g., Contractor of the Year) –Site development, utilities and public works jobs (R. D. Jones Excavating - Harrod, Ohio) –Residential and commercial building construction, excavation (C. Laney and Sons Construction) –Commercial building (Elk Valley Development) –Mix of public and private highway, utility and site work (Tennoca Construction) –Site work, pipeline and utility services (Raydon Inc.) –Clearing residential and commercial lots, plus building roads and installing foundations and septic tanks (Bluestem Landscape & Design)

6 GCSFlex for Excavators - Overview Add-on Kits: 2. Tilt-bucket  Standard 2D system: Depth, slope, with Laser Catcher 2. HS410 Heading Sensor - A magnetic compass-based heading sensor - Provides heading information - Allows the operator to rotate the machine and still receive accurate guidance - Mounted in the center of the counter balance * does require mount plate to be welded

7 GCSFlex for Excavators  “System in a Case” –Installed & calibrated in ~2 hours by the dealer or customer –No expensive tools, welding required –Leverages existing CB450 control box, software, and sensors

8 GCSFlex for Excavators  Everything you need in one case Installation and Measure-up Tools System Cables Mounting Brackets Sensors Carrying Case Documentation Control Box Control Box Suction Cup Mount and Bracket

9 GCSFlex for Excavators  Standard 2D system configuration –Depth, slope and Laser Catcher configuration –Includes 2D excavator software – only! –Add-on kits available  HS410 Heading Sensor  Tilt-bucket –Designed NOT to be upgraded to full 3D –IF you want to upgrade then, purchase separately:  Trimble Ready base kit  Mast kits  Control box software option keys  Make it Trimble Ready

10 Marketing Messages  GCS900 –Premium level 2D/3D functionality –Typically installed by dealer –Fully upgradable, modular –Designed for portability – includes all earthmoving machines –Trimble Ready, permanent installation of rugged components  GCSFlex –Entry level 2D-only Excavator system –Installable and “learnable” by the customer in ~2hr –Ideal for rental machines – easy to move between machines –Cost engineered (e.g., minimum connectors) –Excavator only, not all machine types –Preconfigured “System-in-a-case” – Limited expandability/upgradability

11 GCSFlex benefits to customers  Easy to use and install –Customer installed, up and running in 2 hours –Share system among other excavators in fleet –Quickly installed/removed on rental machines  Affordable –Ideal for price sensitive, non-adopted contractor  Increase productivity –Less experienced operators become more productive, more quickly –Reduce reliance upon manual labor / resource  Increase accuracy –Tells you where to dig, correctly, the first time  Increase quality –Perform higher quality work, get more jobs

12 GCSFlex benefits to SITECH  Easily demonstrated –Benefit for GCSFlex and GCS Premium  Easily installed, trained and supported –Common GCS components and user interface –Quick to install and train –Limited functionality, supported over the phone  Rental Systems –Rented by SITECH –Rented by OEM dealer / rental store with machines
