WHAT CAN CAT GRADE FOR EXCAVATORS DO FOR ME?

Improve digging and grading efficiency. By providing accurate bucket guidance during digging and slope cutting, grade control for excavators helps operators cut to grade quickly and precisely—the first time. That lets you complete jobs faster in fewer passes.

Save time and money. Working faster and more accurately reduces cycle times, fuel consumption and rework—saving you fuel and helping extend machine life.

Get more out of your operators. Putting the grade plan in the cab makes it easy for new and experienced machine operators to create precise planes and slopes. Automated, intuitive machine control reduces error, rework and fatigue.

Work more safely. Minimizing the need for staking and checking keeps workers out of harm’s way. This grade control system alerts operators if the linkage or bucket approaches a predefined elevation or depth—and it gives operators more time to focus on the work environment instead of the control.

 

HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT GRADE CONTROL SYSTEM?

From simple bucket guidance to fully automated bucket and boom movement, we offer machine control options that fit your application and budget—and let you scale up or down as needs change. Your Cat dealer can help you choose the best autograde solution for your jobsite.

  • Cat Grade with Depth & Slope. This 2D indicate-only machine control system provides operators with precise, real-time bucket positioning relative to the desired grade. It’s ideal for maintaining accurate grades and slopes in excavations and trenching applications.
  • Cat Grade with Assist. This 2D grade control system automates boom and bucket movements, significantly reducing manual input and fatigue and improving grading consistency for operators of all experience levels.
  • Cat Grade with 3D. This factory-integrated autograde system uses GNSS satellite technology to deliver precise blade positioning and location information to the cab. It can boost productivity up to 50% versus traditional grading.
  • Cat AccuGrade. This dealer-installed GPS machine technology guides an operator to grade manually (using in-cab guidance) or automatically (by controlling movements) with fewer survey stakes required. It can raise productivity up to 40% while reducing site costs dramatically. Both 2D and 3D systems are available.
