Break New Ground
The most advanced technology ever put on an excavator. Period. Using best-in-class sensors, software, and safety, Built engineers have developed a robust trenching solution that is designed to take a beating on any jobsite — and keep running like clockwork.
Improve Equipment Utilization
Hit Record Production Rates
The Flat-Out Best Way to Dig a Trench
Rugged hardware. Powerful computing. Made for the demands of solar. The world’s first and only aftermarket upgrade, the Exosystem™, installs on the tail of any modern excavator to enable fully autonomous trenching. Preserve manual operation with a versatile mounting system that can be detached when needed.
Restored Schedule Certainty
Regain control of your schedule. Reduce site congestion and protect the critical path. Spoil piles are sized and spaced evenly, streamlining the workflow of your backfill and compaction crews.
1/10 of a Foot Accuracy
Eliminate rework with accurate depths within 1/10 of a foot. State-of-the-art RTK GPS, IMUs, and proprietary kinematic software enable you to hit the most demanding tolerances.
Get reliable production data delivered to you instantaneously. Using robots gets project teams the visibility they need to manage schedules and resources with zero extra effort.
Generate as-builts on the fly. Save your surveyors time. Robots can self-survey and automatically produce as-built files so you don’t have to survey trench locations after excavation has taken place.
Custom Trench Widths
Bring your own bucket. Our proprietary software, Everest, supports custom buckets you can measure, upload, and store — even update measurements as teeth wear down.
10% Maximum Grade
A field-proven force multiplier, the robot is equipped to operate in rugged, greenfield locations. It can handle various terrain in grades up to 10% with extreme accuracy.
Install with commons tools and simple methods. Built’s Exosystem includes mounting hardware built-in to allow lifting with service trucks, forklifts, or other excavators.
Unlock double or triple shift capacity on any jobsite. Fully autonomous trenching robots can take over and continue working when crews are finished to yield higher production rates.
15–50 Ton Machines
This robot plays well with others. Our upgrade kit, the Exosystem, can be installed on most modern excavators from leading manufacturers in less than a day.
One Size Digs All
Mixed fleets are our specialty. The Exosystem is engineered to be compatible with mid-size excavators from all of the leading manufacturers. Built has designed a seamless installation that takes only a few hours and is fully reversible.
