Does anyone have any information on the a laser-grader? Price, quality, etc.
bump ttt anyone with any info?
Which lazer grader system are you looking at?
its a mini grader it was featured in TURF magazine with the mini machines. I searched the web and found some interesting info on it but nothing on price or hp.
They caught my eye. I would like you could set something like that up with a skid loader or a tractor and box blade.
The teeth could be used to scarifiing (sp?) and a loader could bring in dirt to low areas or use the blade smooth area. A mounting for a laser reciever and slope indicator on the blade might be a better option.
I am thinking it is a factory direct item I am not positive.
Yeah I emailed the manufactorer but they never replied. I guess they dont want to sell them very bad.
Years ago Allis Chalmers made a small grader. Was cute that was about it. Mever ran one. I operatied and old Cat 12 and a 140. I am by no mean a great grader operator.
Personally for landscape work a box blade and skid loader do wonders. And you get get a lot more use out it rather than the laser grader IMO.
A stationary mounted rotor lazer level with a stick mounted on the dozer blade is all I use. I mark the stick at the correct height and then keep the lazer light on that mark. I do a lot of just eyeballing until I get the grade close and finish it up with the lazer and stick method. a lot cheaper than $59000.
Yes, and you can get a lot more use out of the dozer and laser light too.
i am still using an old sight level. are you able to see the laser light that easy to hold it on a mark? seems like that would work great and could be easily adapted to a bucket or backhoe arm as well if so. i am hoping santa will be bringing me a laser this christmas. it is the only thing on my list.
