Cat® Grade with Slope Assist provides blade slope/angle control to the cutting edge to achieve accurate slopes with a quality surface finish in less time with less effort — without the need for off-board infrastructure. This integrated machine system uses a blade mounted sensor to calculate necessary blade slope position to achieve desired surface slope and main-fall. The system makes automated adjustments to the lift and tilt cylinders, typically performed by the operator. The in-cab display uses the existing machine display to deliver the information the operator needs to quickly and easily spread or cut material at the correct angle. Two modes are available: basic and advanced. Basic mode maintains the slope of the last given blade command. Advanced mode drives to and maintains a preset target slope. Elevation is controlled manually by matching grade or automatically by adding an elevation control device. This foundational system for dozers can be combined with laser, GNSS or UTS technologies to make grading even more efficient and productive.
