    iDig

    Sooo bought myself an iDig from Glenn and Neil as Nasco Load Indicators. Its a great bit of kit for setting out levels etc. Its not GPS based but a couple clicks every time you move and your spot on! Great investment!

    there is a video on the iDig guidance system. I know have it set up on both my JCB 19-c and the JCB 8085. Its a great bit of kit and i would really recommend one!

    Looks like a bit of faff Jimbo and a complex U/I .. I use one of these http://sealandsurvey.co.uk/leica-aga...gnetic-mounts/ mag mounts onto any dipper and uses a basic laser which I would have on site anyway for use with the staff. One down side is it has to be visible to the laser though.. so if its on the wrong side of the dipper .. you are gubbed .. comes with a wireless sail attach for inside the cab too for extra beer vouchers https://www.krinc.net/6009893.html (Bollox dollars price on that site link for it)

    Space can be tight on small dippers for it though as its a foot long and your set looks compact ... How much is the idig ?

    Yeah i bought a mag mounted receiver but didnít like it the iDig gives a level no matter where the arm etc is sitting. The iDig saves you having to get out the cab and the screen is very easy to work. And its also pretty good to set up the buckets on it too as its set for every bucket you have.
    The price though...............£7,000
