However you figure your ROI, it pays to buy the iDig.
Eliminate costs of grade checker and idle machine.
Save €4.800 per month
by eliminating a grade checker (Company cost).
Salary: €30/h (including benefits) * 8h * 5 days = €1.200/week = €4.800/month
Savings vary with intermittent grade checking. Save even more since your excavator will never be idle.

Lower machine costs.
If you assume that the iDig will get the job done at least 10% faster, you can reach your ROI (€4.950) in less than 2 1/2 months! You save on costs for the machine (€70/h) and operator (€40/h)=€110/h

Save material costs. Overdig of 5cm for a house foundation (100 m2).
Requires 5m3 of gravel fill: €87,50 (€17,50/m3)
Plus disposal of overdigged material: €100 (€20/m3)
Sum of overdigging costs: €187,50 for a 1-day job
