SKI STRING-LINE
• The string-line should be
mounted a minimum of 4”
above ski

SLOPE SENSOR
The Slope Sensor is a
precision electronic sensor
which functions much like
a precision carpenter’s
level.

Paving Products
SLOPE SENSOR
The Slope Sensor reads the
inclination (tilt) of the
screed and sends the signal
to the Control Box.

Paving Products
SENSOR PLACEMENT
Rearward Mounting
Used to produce quick
changes when matching
existing joints or curb lines
is desired

Paving Products
SENSOR PLACEMENT
Forward Mounting
Used to produce gradual
changes when smoothness
or rideability is desired

Paving Products
SENSOR PLACEMENT
Sensor even with center
line of auger for fast
reaction or building
profile.

Paving Products
SENSOR PLACEMENT
Sensor forward for averaging or
rideability

Paving Products
SENSOR PLACEMENT
Never mount the sensor in
front of the tow point or
behind the center line of
the auger
