GPS Graders

Equipping a grader with GPS satellite guidance increases its flexibility and a grader can often be found on a machine guided construction site working with other heavy machinery to provide design guidance. In addition to providing the operator with design reference, graders can also easily 'corner-tip' a line in the Earth that can become the basis for other machine bulk earthwork activities.

Graders are often also responsible for precise grading of pavement layers as can be seen in the Machine Control Pavement Trimming photo slideshow.
