Overview

Cat® Grade with Assist delivers breakthrough gains in customer productivity to help customers get more work done with greater accuracy, efficiency, safety, and profitability. The base Cat Grade system provides real-time 2D bucket tip elevation guidance to help operators work efficiently, confidently and productively and reach target grades and slopes fast. 2D control enables the operator to create simple designs in the cab, such as flat planes and slopes.

Cat Grade with Assist brings grading speed and accuracy to a new level by automating boom and bucket movements typically achieved by the operator. This significantly reduces manual inputs and fatigue, and improves grading consistency for operators at all experience levels.
