Survey Connection bring DigPilot to Scotland

Survey Connection – the premier surveying and Safety Equipment specialists in Scotland – and OnGrade Ltd have reached agreement that will see Survey Connection distributing OnGrade’s DigPilot, wireless excavator guidance system throughout Scotland, the product will be available on a purchase and hire basis.

The two companies met at the ScotPlant show in March of this year, a show that proved extremely successful for both parties.

OnGrade’s Gary Escott says,

“DigPilot was shown in the UK for the first time at ScotPlant and the level of interest was beyond any expectations we had, it was this level of interest however that made us realise that if DigPilot was to be truly successful in Scotland we would need to find a suitable route to market, and that meant local people and local support”

Enter Survey Connection…

Alex Love of Survey Connection instantly recognised the potential of DigPilot when he saw it being demonstrated in the pavilion at ScotPlant

“Survey Connection had looked at machine control and decided it was a product line we wanted to offer but with other products we had come across there were issues because they required a hard wired installation. DigPilot is wireless which makes introducing the product into the mainstream hire market a reality”

Love continued

 “DigPilot is different to other machine control systems because of its wireless technology it is also the only truly scalable portable system that allows the user to use a single system across an excavator fleet of up to 20 machines.  Another huge benefit in having wireless technology means DigPilot does not require expensive service calls due to broken cables and connection”s.

Escott says of the deal with Survey Connection

“We are very excited about working with Survey Connection, having such an outstanding dealer  in Scotland gives us every confidence the product will be a success. Perhaps the most exciting thing of all is Survey Connection expertise in the hire sector.  DigPilot lends itself to the mainstream hire market and hiring machine control should could be as easy as hiring a grade laser, this is what we mean when we use the term Machine Control for Everyone”

Love concluded

“We are looking forward to getting DigPilot into the market; the fact that a customer can hire the system without committing to the capital outlay of a purchase is extremely significant “
