Ideal for Construction Sites Involving Contours
Maintaining consistent grade between stakes is challenging, even for experienced operators. AccuGrade™ GPS reduces labor requirements and helps operators work to the design plan by accurately cutting, filling and reducing material cost.
Designed for motor graders, dozers, excavators and soil compactors, the AccuGrade GPS control system is the best solution when your construction site involves contours, rather than single or dual slope planes. The AccuGrade 3D system uses GPS technology to compare the blade position to a three-dimensional computerized site plan and signals the operator or hydraulic system to raise or lower the blade to achieve the design requirements.
Wide Variety of Applications
Flat, single and dual sloping planar designs, such as building pads, parking lots, roads and highways, can be created on-board the machine using the AccuGrade GPS system. Complex 3D designs, such as golf courses and roads with super elevations, can be created in the office by design engineers and loaded onto the system via a compact flash card.
Benefits of AccuGrade GPS Technology
Efficiency and Productivity Gains
Increase productivity up to 50 percent while reducing survey costs (up to 90 percent) and operating costs, and reducing guesswork and costly rework by moving dirt right the first time.
Assists with Labor Shortage
Reduce labor requirements and costs by reducing the need for staking, stringing lines and grade checkers while simultaneously empowering operators to check grade from the cab.
Improves Employee Satisfaction and Retention
The in-cab display brings the design right into the cab, giving the operator real-time results and greater responsibility, which in turn results in greater job satisfaction while improving skills and job performance.
Addresses Safety Concerns
The AccuGrade GPS safety interlock ensures the blade is securely locked when the system is inactive, while the system reduces the need for grade stakers and checkers at work sites, keeping them away from heavy equipment.
Cat® Machine Integration
The AccuGrade GPS system is optimized for seamless integration with Cat machine electronics, hydraulic systems, safety systems and in-cab operator controls for superior ease of use, while boasting the unmatched service and support of the Cat Dealer Network.
Increases Equipment Versatility
AccuGrade GPS provides consistency and accuracy, turning your production machine into a fine grading machine, while plug and play connections allow for fast, easy conversion from laser grade control system to GPS to manual control.
