The Bobcat Depth Check system option is a grade-control system for use on the E32, E32i, E35, E35i, E42, E45, E50 and E55 models, with either standard or long-arm iterations.

The system is a kit that utilizes three sensors—one on the trenching or grading bucket, one on the arm, and one on the boom—that are connected to the instrument panel inside the cab to track the precise location of the bucket teeth as the bucket, boom and arm move. The system can be calibrated to a specific machine as well as its corresponding attachments— up to five buckets—using the excavator’s boom and arm length, as well as a bucket tooth radius. It has an accuracy of ± 0.5 inches, preventing excavator operators from stopping the machine to measure depth and entering and exiting a trench with a measuring device.
