Case Laser Grading Box
The new Case laser grading box is the first precision-enabled attachment for Case skid steers and compact track loaders. Ideal for a variety of fine-grading applications, the Case laser grading box creates precise finish grades to within 1/10th of an inch. A rotating laser is set for the desired grade. The rotating beam of laser light is read by the laser receivers, which are mounted to mast poles. The beam’s location is then sent to the control panel, which interprets where the beam of light is in relation to grade. The control panel then tells the hydraulic valve to adjust the grading box up or down to keep on grade. For more info, visit casece.com.
