Bobcat’s sonic tracer/slope sensor kit controls are built into the deluxe instrumentation panel on M Series loaders. This integration allows operators to make adjustments without ever leaving the cab. The deluxe instrumentation panel displays real-time information on actual versus target slope. All settings for the sonic tracer distance and slope are completed on the panel, including the ability to: offset (move up or down) the sonic tracer distance; perform a reverse grade (one button allows the transition from positive to negative slope percentages, and vice versa); turn the sonic tracer off and still have the slope sensor run automatically, allowing the operator to control one side of the blade and have the other side move to maintain the desired slope.
