Less operator input is required while providing better accuracy, reduced operator fatigue and faster travel speeds.
Mounted on the carrier’s steering levers, fingertip controls provide quick and easy access to make elevation changes or switch the automatic function on or off, delivering precise and accurate results with maximum operator comfort.
While in automatic mode, if the operator pushes a switch to move the blade up or down, automatic mode is momentarily interrupted. When the operator releases the switch, the system immediately returns to automatic mode.
Deliver a 360-degree operating range. Provide visible indication of where the blade is relative to the ground and an automatic mode indicator.
Move the grade up/down, in 0.1-inch (or 2.5 mm) increments up to 2 inches in either direction, making it easier for the operator to make adjustments on-the-fly without leaving the cab to raise or lower the transmitter.
For ease of use around the jobsite, the laser control system is quickly attached and removed as necessary.
On the jobsite, the laser transmitter is mounted on a tripod to provide a 360-degree plane of reference at a set elevation and slope. Laser receivers, mounted on a mast attached to the box blade or grader attachment, capture the light from the laser transmitter. In manual control mode, the receivers inform the operator via LED lights when the blade needs to move up or down, or to notify that the blade is on grade. In automatic control mode, the receiver informs the blade that it needs to move up or down to stay on grade.
With the box blade attachment, one receiver – mounted in the middle – moves the entire blade up or down. With the grader attachment, two receivers are mounted so that so each side of the blade will adjust independently.
The following components are required to operate this attachment and must be purchased separately:
