Agatec MR240 at a glance

Agatec MR240 Receiver - Overview

One-person operation saves time and money!
Attaches to excavator arm with extra strong rare earth magnets built into back plate.

No grade checker required
So there’s no expensive machine downtime while operator checks grade with a rod.

Positioning the Agatec MR240 receiver with release lever

Pull the lever down before placing it on the excavator arm. This creates a gap between the back plate and machine.

This gap prevents the strong magnets from attaching to the machine until you have it in position.

Once it is in position, lift the lever to lock receiver.

LEDs indicate direction

Blinking LEDs point in the direction to move the bucket to reach grade. Color also tells you at a glance your position. 5 channels available in fine:
