Use your Next Gen monitor to find these convenient shortcuts: 

  • Auto shift chooses the best gear for your operating conditions.

  • Stable Blade smooths out your blade when in manual grading applications. 
  • AutoCarry™ picks up the blade if your machine starts to slip when used with Cat Grade with 3D. 
  • Fan purge reverses the engine fan to purge debris.
