Imagine the Possibilities
Automated cross slope
Standard on all GP models, cross slope maintains slopes by automatically adjusting one side of the blade while the operator controls the other. Cross slope can also be operated in “manual mode” as a slope meter.
Automated cross slope simplifies holding a consistent slope by reducing operation to a single lever. Both dual-joystick controls and fingertip armrest controls come equipped with cross slope and can be easily upgraded to 3D SmartGrade.
Standard with SmartGrade 3D Grade Control, Automation Suite streamlines the number of controls needed to perform common tasks such as Auto-Articulation, Machine Presets, Blade Flip, Machine-Damage Avoidance, and exclusive Auto-Pass. Our automation advantages for all GP-Series Motor Graders are also available as field kits that can be unlocked on SmartGrade models.
Run without limits
In-cylinder position sensing allows the machine to stay on grade no matter what blade pitch, articulation angle, or circle offset you’re running, without the limitations imposed by masted systems. Built with flexibility in mind, laser, sonic, mmGPS, and total-station solutions can also be utilized, enabling unmatched jobsite versatility.
The Future is Here
Available for all GP-Series Motor Graders. Automation suite includes machine damage avoidance, auto-articulation and machine presets. Fully integrated with no masts or cables.
