RTK GPS Drain Tile Design & Installation Software, for plows or trenchers.
AGPS-Pipe Pro’s proven technology has been used by professional contractors to install tile with RTK-GPS for over 25 years! AGPS-Pipe software automatically calculates tile depth & slope, then controls installation!
AGPS-Pipe Pro's industry leading feature set saves drainage pipe (tile) installers time, effort, and money.
Entry level machine control
AGPS-PipeFM (Farm Model) is a unique software that saves farmers time, effort, and money while installing drainage tile. This software calculates the slopes and grade breaks for an entire main or lateral using Vertical Curve Technology™ and controls the machine grade during installation. Also captures lines during install to easily make CAD maps showing drain layout.
Machine control + guidance
Pipe II software includes the ability to set grid lines, and import background images and drawings. Ideal for viewing pre-designed lines or contour maps.
Recommended for Professional Contractors
Our exclusive PTL (Previous Topo Lay) feature allows profiles to be calculated from field survey points, rather than surveying with the machine, or pre-designing. Footage reports and size labeling make it easier to track progress.
AGPS-Pipe Pro (or Pipe IV) includes all feature capabilities, as well as automatic steering on compatible self-propelled tile plows & trenchers.
Ditch Pro is software to ease the operation of creating or re-cutting surface ditches. This software calculates the optimum slopes and grade breaks for an entire ditch using Vertical Curve Technology™. Then provides guided or automated control while cutting. Also captures lines with unique labels for record of ditch location.
GPS DITCHING IS AS EASY AS 1-2-3!
1. Drive to the high point and press a button
2. Drive ditch path to low point and press a button
3. Start ditching!
With automatic blade control, enjoy a more precise cut with less operator fatigue. Plug-and-go with JD 8xxx, 9xxx, R, and RT series, MT Challenger, and CNH tractors. An external valve is available for other tractor models.
AGPS Software uses unique AGPS-Vertical Curve Technology™ (VCT™) to design drainage solutions. Users set preferred parameters required in their drainage project and VCT™ designs a drainage solution that uses a finite number of grade breaks through the drainage path. VCT™ allows drainage paths to retain nutrient rich soils, yet move the minimal amount of soil to provide desired drainage. In the case of a ditching application VCT™ allows ditches to be placed with acceptable drainage in unfavorable landscapes. This saves considerable time over conventional laser systems that require a point to point drainage path. VCT™ allows a drainage path to be designed without regard to axis alignment as laser systems require.
AGPS-Dirt Pro is software that saves time, money, and effort for land forming or site work. The working screen shows the operator cut/fill amount to plan grade anywhere on the job site. Automatic grade control makes work accurate and simple.
Increase your efficiency and accuracy when you’re on the job site with AGPS Dirt-Pro. Import your complex multi-slope design and let AGPS Dirt-Pro control the machine using high accuracy RTK-GPS.

TERRACE & WATERWAY BUNDLE
Terraces and Waterways are often designed with station and cross section.
This bundle combines in cab station and cross section design capabilities, with Dirt and Ditch programs.
Define the terrace or waterway sections with a distance and rise/fall from centerline. Multiple sections allow easy grade changes.
Automatic blade control can be operated in either direction parallel to centerline or perpendicular.
WHAT IS VERTICAL CURVE TECHNOLOGY™?
AGPS Software uses unique AGPS-Vertical Curve Technology™ (VCT™) to design drainage solutions. Users set preferred parameters required in their drainage project and VCT™ designs a drainage solution that uses a finite number of grade breaks through the drainage path. VCT™ allows drainage paths to retain nutrient rich soils, yet move the minimal amount of soil to provide desired drainage. In the case of a tile plow application VCT™ allows tile to be placed at optimum depth in variable terrain. This saves considerable time over conventional laser systems that require a point to point drainage path or manual grade breaks. VCT™ allows a drainage path to be designed without regard to axis alignment as laser systems require.
GNSS AND COMPUTER HARDWARE
Electronics have a common rule: Garbage in = Garbage out.
GPS/GNSS systems are no exception, because not all RTK equipment is created equal.
