Overview

Cat GRADE with Slope Assist™ makes just about any dozer job faster and easier – build pads, spread truck dumps, build slopes/embankments and so much more. Maintains blade angles so you get better surface quality – even with a less experienced operator. No base station or laser needed, no additional hardware, software or equipment to buy, nothing to remove from the machine at the end of the day.

Basic or Advanced

  • Basic Mode - push the Auto button on the joystick, move the blade to the desired position and Slope Assist will maintain that position.
  • Mainfall automatically lifts or lowers blade to maintain desired slope.
  • Blade Cross Slope automatically tilts blade to maintain desired blade cross slope.
  • Advanced Mode gives you more features to help you work from existing planes.
  • Recall Value places and controls blade to consistent value with each auto initiation.
  • Swap Slope reverses slope values when changing directions.
  • Match Slope lets you put the blade on the ground and push a button to match recall value to the existing slope.
  • Increment/Decrement – joystick buttons adjust mainfall or blade cross slope away from corresponding recall value.
