Improved Hydraulic Excavator Autos Performance While Cutting Steep Slopes

Excavator depth automatics performance has been improved while cutting slopes of 45 degrees or more. Testing on 60 degree slopes has shown an increase in performance while pulling up and down the slopes.

Latch to Grade Function in Dozers

For factory integrated Cat Next Generation Dozers the Latch to Grade Auto Mode has been improved based on field feedback. Updated in v2.7, when the machine is in the reverse gear, Latch from Above logic is always used. The blade can be lifted at any time and a deliberate command is required to lower the blade below design. There is no change to Latch to Grade when the machine is in forward gear.
