John Deere motor grader enhancements

Nov. 15, 2020

John Deere, Moline, Ill., has expanded the Grade Pro (GP)-Series of motor graders with Blade Stow and Auto-Gain technologies. Blade Stow, standard with machine presets or Automation Suite, adds a configurable setting to automatically slow the blade with the touch of a button. With Auto-Gain, the machine automatically adjusts the Cross Slope gain setting on the fly based on the operating conditions, eliminating the need for operators to make manual adjustments.

Auto-Gain improves productivity for operators by ensuring accurate blade movement in ever-changing conditions, the company says. The GP-Series motor graders can be further enhanced with optional Machine Damage Avoidance. When activated, the feature reduces the chance of downtime by preventing the moldboard from inadvertently contacting the tires, the cab steps or frame and the saddle from contacting the table.
