Getting Good Grades

Laser control technology for site grading is available in several different forms and carries with it a wealth of benefits including reduced staking, increased accuracy and reduced labour and machine operation times.

The level of advantage gained from employing laser technology for grade control will largely depend upon the level of automation in place within the process. Prices can range from $1000 for simple display laser receivers to around $100,000 for fully automated systems that are able to control the machines cutting depth etc.
