Follow these steps to help ensure accuracy on your next grading project with a depth check system.

1.) Position the excavator in line with where you’re trenching.
2.) Lower the bucket and use the bucket teeth to find the target depth.
3.) Lower the excavator blade to plant the machine.
4.) Set the depth check system’s benchmark using the dashboard instrumentation.
