Trimble Expands Construction Layout Solutions with Two New Robotic Total Stations
Powerful New Total Stations Allow Concrete and General Contractors to Take Control of their Layout

DAYTON, Ohio, July 10, 2007 - Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) today announced the Trimble® SPS710 and SPS610 Robotic Total Stations for construction layout applications. Used with the Trimble LM80 Layout Manager, the new Trimble SPS710 and SPS610 Robotic Total Stations allow concrete and general contractors to take control of their construction layout requirements for commercial and residential building construction.

The announcement was made today at Trimble's Construction Boot Camp 2007, a field-based, hands-on training event for the construction industry.

Using the new Trimble SPS710 or SPS610 Robotic Total Stations, contractors can perform layout tasks more efficiently than with conventional mechanical systems to increase their productivity. The Trimble SPS710 and SPS610 Robotic Total Stations offer construction-specific functionality allowing general and concrete contractors to perform all jobsite layout and measurement tasks for maximum flexibility and cost savings. An easy-to-follow user interface designed for contractors shortens the learning curve and speeds operation.

These high-accuracy total stations offer very fast, one-person layout capabilities for all layout applications to dramatically reduce layout time and operating costs. With two robotic total station models to choose from, contractors have the flexibility to select the product to best suit their construction layout needs. Whether the need is for a higher accuracy robotic total station for anchor bolt layout, or one best suited for smaller residential projects, Trimble offers layout solutions tailored to the contractor's construction layout needs. Additionally, the rugged Trimble SPS710 and SPS610 Robotic Total Stations are built to withstand tough jobsite conditions, minimizing downtime due to repair.

Trimble Construction Positioning Solutions allow contractors to carry, manage, work with and layout the jobsite blueprint, regardless of the method and instrumentation used in a variety of commercial and residential applications, including:
 Layout control points on or offset to construction lines
 Check or tie into property boundaries
 Layout excavation lines
 Layout of concrete forms and anchor bolts
 As-built checks
 Layout control lines on concrete pad for subcontractor use
 Light topographical measurements for cut/fill balance

The new Trimble SPS710 and SPS610 Robotic Total Stations are expected to be available at the end of July 2007 through Trimble's worldwide Construction dealer channel.
