    @Tags I think you have made it clear for me. I made a pendulum level indicator years ago for an operation, and I will make another and mount it and the target like yours on the stick. I can get the stick straight and roll the bucket till it sits flat, and get a good ditch grade. I dig 1% and 2% all day long.
    I'll still have a rod and shovel man, but he will be grading the bedding behind me. I dig 2" low for bedding.

    Going with the Trimble earthworks 2D for an excavator. Once installed will post pics from that and give an installation description.

    I ordered the cr600 and magnet mount yesterday, and will get to fabbing my plumb indicator. I think I will put it on a mag base.
