If you view a dozer step in DragSim, you can see a distance and a slope (it's displayed in the lower left hand corner of the screen). The distance is the horizontal (plan) distance between the centroid of the cut and the centroid of the fill, while the dozing grade is the grade (rise over run) between the two centroids (a positive grade means a downhill doze for some reason)
