Default Re: I Dig Best and other Grade assist systems?

I did see one place where the system had problems and that was during a northern lights event which pretty much shut down the system. I'm still comfortable with using lasers and laser receivers. Clint hasn't been digging as long as I have so he's still looking for an easier way and thinks this system called 'I Dig Best' is the way forward. I'm not sure about it myself and was just wondering if anybody has used a system like this before?
gonna be knackered when yer got to do it yerself after a few weeks with that on your m/c Bert ...... pretty impressive
If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!
