Abstract/Contents:Defines laser grading as "the process of moving soil with a grading mechanism equipped with an automated control," noting that "anything with a motor and hydraulic supply can be mounted with an automated laser control system." Details a procedure for laser-grading fields that are surrounded by slopes or fences. Focuses on drawing a scale model of the field and determining slope percentages, concurrently explaining the mechanisms and principles by which laser grading equipment is operated. Concludes by suggesting that "laser grading guarantees safety and improved drainage, which are the biggest issues on any field."
