ARM NOT REFERENCED and BOOM
NOT REFERENCED flags must be
removed or Bucket-ProTM System will not
know where it is in regards to boom and
arm sensors. Main operating display
appears with two more referencing flags.
Move boom through reference point
(approximately 30 degrees above
horizontal) until BOOM NOT
REFERENCED flag (3) disappears.
Move arm through reference point
(approximately ±5 degrees from vertical in
each direction) until ARM NOT
REFERENCED flag (4) disappears.
The following examples help you understand basic daily setup for frequently used applications, including
basic trench/basement excavation and slope excavation. Although many more ways to use the system exist,
these examples show how to use the Bucket-ProTM System.
The basis for operating the Bucket-ProTM System revolves around three well-understood job site principles:
Reference (Benchmark) Elevation
Reference (Benchmark) Elevation is a known elevation on a job site. This elevation may be a survey
benchmark, sea- level benchmark, or elevation of an existing structure. One of these must be available prior
to excavating. A good idea is to check elevation setting whenever possible to ensure accuracy and maintain
overall job quality. In absence of a reference benchmark on a job site, Bucket-ProTM System can be used in an
absolute mode by putting bucket's cutting edge on ground and setting a Bench Elevation of 0.00 ft as an
