Some pictures of our lazer and receiver that I mount to the boom of the excavator. Also two pictures of how I grade our base of our patios. I graded this patio in under 10 min. It had a 3 inch pitch from the house side to the far side. Just make sure the timber is strait! Here is a video of me grading this project: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWfkFLD_izQ

Why are you screeding out your sand than walking all over it?

Because we don't own a hover craft. The only access to the back yard was around the left of the house. So rather than lay 650sf of pavers from one pallet location, we put the pallets out around the patio before we put the sand down. Then we just walk across the sand in one location to bring the pavers in. Then just go over it with the back of the rake as seen in the video. So... take 2 min to re-grade the sand or spend a lot of time walking 40ft insted of 10 ft with the pavers each time.

The laser and the receiver on the boom are from Topcon. The receiver attaches magnetically to the excavator.

I don't know any prices sorry. I don't do any of the pricing or estimates for the company. Maybe some one else who uses them can chime in.
