Overview

The AccuGrade Grade Control System is a technology machine control and guidance system that allows operator to grade with increased accuracy, with less survey stakes. Digital design data, in-cab operator guidance features and automatic controls help the operator achieve grade faster, meaning higher productivity, lower operating costs, and greater profitability.

AccuGrade Grade Control System is a dealer installed technology that can be used to guide an operator to grade, manually using in-cab guidance, or automatically by controlling movements resulting in faster and more accurate grading. The system uses machine mounted sensors to calculate precise blade/ tool location, slope and/or elevation information. The integrated electrohydraulic valve control module uses the information received from the sensors to control the machine's hydraulic system and automatically adjust the blade/bucket's cutting edge to maintain grade on select machines. Depending on the configuration, the operator can select which side of the blade/tool to control - right, left, or both sides. AccuGrade brings to the customer an increase in productivity by up to 40% while reducing their site costs dramatically.
