  • Cat GRADE with Cross Slope for Motor Graders

    Cat® GRADE with Cross Slope is an integrated system that enables motor grader operators to achieve grade faster and more accurately by automating the cross slope of the blade, allowing the operator to do more in the same amount of time. Other cost-saving benefits of the system include lower fuel consumption and up to 40% less material usage.
