AGL MR240 Machine Control Receiver for contractors involved in construction or agricultural projects such as site preparation, dam construction, and excavation projects. Customers use rotating lasers plus a detector system mounted on equipment to constantly receive the laser reference plane. Some systems are interfaced with an electric/hydraulic valve into the machine's hydraulic system to provide automatic control of the blade elevation.
Ideal for use with backhoes and
miniexcavators, this receiver offers
the convenience of a machine-mounted
display at an economical price.
The MR240 receiver provides accurate
grade information for all visual
machine control applications, with
240° detection of any rotating laser.
• LED indicators show position of
cutting edge in relation to the laser
• Memory stores the last signal
received. LED arrows indicate which
way to move the bucket to pick up
the laser beam again.
• Choice of three settings: 3 channels
(indicators) in coarse mode; 3 or
5 channels in fine.
• Magnetic mount allows quick
mounting and easy movement from
machine to machine.
• Automatic shutoff.
• Rugged, waterproof construction.
• Includes receiver, batteries, case.

Machine control receivers work with rotating lasers. The laser provides a reference plane of laser light over the jobsite. The receiver is mounted above the machine's cutting edge on grading equipment or on the dipper arm of excavation equipment. The receiver is initially set on-grade to a known desired elevation or benchmark. As the machine is used and the blade or bucket is moved, the operator is given a visual indication of which direction to move the blade or bucket to get to on-grade, effectively checking grade from the cab
