Grading on 3 to 1 Slope
Be completely familiar with the machine before
operating on extreme side slopes.
Never fully articulate the machine uphill on steep
On steep slopes, the machine should be operated in first
gear, at a reduced engine speed.
When working on slopes, use the accelerator to control
the speed of the machine.
When operating on extreme slopes, use crab steering to
keep the back of the grader on the downhill side of cut.
Articulate the frame, to place the frame in an offset
position, for maximum stability.
Use crab steering when the front of the machine tends to
slip due to the heavy side load on the blade.
