At grading stage, we introduced Cat® Grade. Having the site on a 3D design gave operators visibility of the work to be completed, with a guidance screen available illustrating the 3D site design and cut and fill areas.
The 3D design eliminated the need for continual grade staking and checking, helping further remove costs and improve job-site safety with less people on site and working near machines.
The extensive range of Cat’s scalable Grade control solutions available on tractors, excavators, motor graders, scrapers and paving equipment were used on the project. Cutting exactly to the finish design allows the project to be completed quicker and with fewer passes therefore saving fuel, time, and running costs.
With Cat Grade technology, there was never a need for our operators to guess, or get out of the cab to manually check accuracy. It improved the grading processes’ speed and accuracy and our operators felt safer, more informed, focussed, and less fatigued.
