Land Levelling with Reach

Originally published at:

Our community user David Hofer shared on Emlid forum how he uses Reach RS+ and Reach RS2 for centimeter-precise land leveling.

David equipped his wheel tractor-scraper with a Reach RS+, mounted on a damping platform. The platform reduces tough vibrations and bumps and allows holding a fixed solution while the machine drives at a high speed.

RS2 is placed on a construction site and acts as a base by providing real-time corrections to the rover. Such a setup provides a centimeter-precise vertical accuracy that is required for David’s land leveling projects.

“Great job Emlid! Reach devices work the same as Trimble or Topcon but times cheaper. We invested only $15,000 for such a setup and it works awesome for that money!”—David Hofer, Farmer from Alberta, Canada.

Lol, cm precise on a scraper! :rofl:


At least the data was centimeter precise , But the scraper actions probably were inchs precise :grinning:


Only so much you can do with those things! What were you using as a visual indicator?
