Start the elevator.
Use a shallow cut for hard material. Use a deeper
cut for soft material.
Keep the engine rpm high for efficient loading.
Use a fast elevator speed for soft material. Use a
slow speed for hard material.
Decrease cut depth if the elevator stalls, or the
Gauge an efficient cut depth by the depth of the
