Electronic Machine Control & Safety System

Working predominantly with Prolec & X-Watch products and with trained in-house engineers, Land & Water has a vast array of Electronic Dig Control Solutions to suit all our clients’ needs from basic 2D systems to full 3D DGPS available with GPS rovers, digital terrain modelling and on site setup all from our own team.

Safety Systems

If not used correctly even the best marine based excavation and dredging equipment can be dangerous, and that’s a fact.

At Land & Water we put safety first. Nothing matters more than that our equipment is used properly and safely – by you, your operators or by our operators.

That’s why all our fleet is equipped with:

  • 360° camera systems – 360° cameras are becoming a regular feature on our machines where they are used in an environment where people are required to work around the machines
  • Hose burst check valves – so excavators can safely be used for lifting as well
  • Wider track pads – for low ground bearing pressure
  • Seat belt indicators/Secondary ‘dead man’ system – the machine will not move until the driver is seated with the seatbelt fastened – a green light on top of the cab indicates this
  • Boom cameras – no need for a banksman
  • Vehicle collision avoidance system – VCAS offer a warning to operators of construction machinery that an object may be in their close vicinity

Electronic machine control:

  • Height limiters – which will ensure you can avoid connecting with overhead restrictions, such as cable, trees or bridges
  • Slew restrictors – essential when working near highways or railways
  • Rated capacity indicators – alerts the operator if the lift is exceeding the safe operating range of the machinery
