Moving dirt with lasers?

Written on:

You heard that right. In the dirt industries you may see contractors using rotating lasers to “shoot grade”. But what does shooting grade with a laser really mean? Shooting grade is the process of finding high or low spots in the dirt or grass that need to be adjusted so that it is even with the surrounding ground. 

Why is this important? It ensures that contractors are properly grading the dirt to give you a finished surface that won’t collect water in low areas. Lasers also help with ensuring that sewer and storm drain pipes are laid with a proper slope so that it can flow through the pipe and not get stuck in a low spot.

At Excavation Contractors LLC, we use the laser from the consultation phase to the completion of your project to ensure every low or high spot is addressed. Contact us today for an estimate on your project.
