EarthWorks is designed to be the easiest to use and most affordable earthwork software for excavating contractors and general contractors.  Earthworks is available in two versions:  for cut & fill take-off from paper plans or for take-offs On-Screen from PDF files and downloaded drawings.

EarthWorks is one of the lowest priced software packages on the market, with many of the same features offered by more expensive cut & fill software.  EarthWorks has been used by thousands of excavating contractors across the U.S. for over 12 years, giving them a strong competitive edge in the bidding process — quick, accurate cut and fill quantities in a fraction of the time compared to manual take-offs.
