    Part No. 114423 GS-30 GS-32 GS-46 39

    To determine the slope grade:

    Measure the slope with a digital inclinometer ORuse the following procedure.

    You will need:

    carpenters level

    straight piece of wood, at least 1 m long

    tape measure

    Lay the piece of wood on the slope.

    At the downhill end, lay the level on the top edge ofthe piece of wood and lift the end until the piece ofwood is level.

    While holding the piece of wood level, measure thedistance from the bottom of the piece of wood tothe ground.

    Divide the tape measure distance (rise) by thelength of the piece of wood (run) and multiply by100.

    Example:

    Run = 3.6 m

    Rise = 0.3 m

    0.3 m 3.6 m = 0.083 x 100 = 8.3%

    If the slope exceeds the maximum slope or sideslope rating, the machine must be winched ortransported up or down the slope. See Transportand Lifting section.
