    Does the receiver have a plumb indicator built in?

    If you've got it on an excavator it will be very important, I've used some of the early ones without a plumb indicator and it can be pretty tough to get an accurate shot.

    but even if you are good, your dipper will still move through some arc,? What's the point ? Be better just to use it (the unit) to dip the track imo
