CASE Construction Equipment has announced the first precision-enabled attachment for CASE skid steers and compact track loaders (CTLs) — the new CASE Laser Grading Box. Ideal for concrete subgrade, athletic fields, parking lots, driveways, equestrian arenas and other fine-grading applications, the CASE Laser Grading Box creates highly precise finish grades to within 1/10th of an inch.
With a reversible cutting edge on all sides, the grading box’s unique push-pull design grades moving forward or in reverse to utilize the maneuverability of a skid steer/CTL and increase productivity. The hydraulic valve system adjusts the grading box, providing operators with smooth and accurate performance even in tough environments.
How it Works
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 the 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 the receivers on grade.
Available in 72-, 84- and 96-inch configurations, the Laser Grading Box is compatible with both skid steers and CTLs. Depending on jobsite conditions, the weight distribution of a CTL may be more suitable for grading applications. The grading box is compatible with CASE Site Control laser receivers, control panel and beacons, and is available in two different mast configurations; single-mast for automated elevation-only, and dual-mast for automated elevation and cross-slope.
The grading box features a durable powder coat finish, composite greaseless bushings and comes standard with foam-filled tires for flat-free operation.
