Motor Graders

John Deere motor grader.

John Deere motor graders are now available with fully programmable Auto-Pass and Auto-Shift Plus, plus Configurable Float on GP series units as well as SmartGrade Remote Support on SmartGrade graders.

Auto-Pass programs machine movements at the beginning and end of grading passes. While adjusting the speed of these movements and rotating the blade 180 degrees, the motor grader will simultaneously place the blade on the ground while preparing for the next pass. Available as an option on the John Deere GP Series motor graders and standard on the John Deere SmartGrade motor graders, this feature can also be programmed to raise and rotate the blade at the end of a grading pass, mirroring the finished angle.

Auto-Shift Plus removes the need for using the inching pedal. This enables the operator to use the throttle and brake, offering increased control of the machine. Auto-Shift Plus allows for the machine to come to a complete stop without stalling.

All GP Series graders have Configurable Float, which allows float switches to be programmed to control any auxiliary function, allowing programming of up to three float switches through the monitor.

SmartGrade Remote Support connects the dealer to the SmartGrade motor grader. The dealer can troubleshoot machine issues and update grade control software from the dealership, reducing downtime. Fleets can use SmartGrade Remote Support for the remote transfer of project files. Additionally, any machine issues can be addressed from a remote location, providing an efficient solution for equipment fleets of all sizes.
