Building on a legacy of innovation John Deere is introducing the advanced G-Series Motor Grader Range to the Sub-Saharan African market
With the launch of its construction equipment in the Sub-Saharan African market, John Deere, a global leader in advanced products, technology, and services, has disclosed that it is presenting its range of construction equipment to a broader set of consumers.
Customers throughout the region will benefit from the size and scale of the John Deere construction equipment product line-up, which includes the popular motor grader line, which features industry-exclusive technology and innovation backed by the John Deere brand and dealer network, according to a statement.
“The Motor Grader line-up builds on John Deere’s legacy of technological and mechanical innovation, most notably introduction of the industry-first SMARTGRADETM configurations, whilst delivering on capabilities that allow operators to work more efficiently on any job site.
“The G / GP model range comes standard with fast, simple ground-level access to all daily service points including fuelling, diesel exhaust fluid, engine oil, hydraulic, transmission and differential filter bank enabling quick and simple inspection and service,” read the statement.
The 622G model in the series, according to the corporation, is suitable for contractors, road builders, and municipalities looking for a cost-effective machine with many of the characteristics of its larger brothers, including a superior cooling package that gives up to 10% fuel savings over larger models.
Increased performance in a cost-effective six-wheel-drive package with lower daily operating expenses is provided by the 622G.
“Operators have a choice of controls enabling them to select the best option for their operation. These include a choice between dual-joystick controls or fingertip armrest mounted controls or a field kit allowing them to easily switch between the two. The dual-joystick control option assists in reducing operator fatigue eliminating the twisting wrist motion or uncomfortable combinations common to other joystick systems,” the company said.
The company also added that: “The GP models within the range include advanced features such as automatic-return-straight; high-resolution reverse camera; rear-mounted ripper/scarifier; front dozer blade; 16 light LED package and an Automation Suite that helps operators improve productivity by reducing the number of controls required to perform common tasks such as auto-articulation, blade flip and operator selected machine pre-sets.”
John Deere Connected SupportTM will be available on certain models, using the potential of telematics to achieve improved levels of uptime and lower operating costs.
“The JDLinkTM Dashboard, the user interface for the telematics system gathers and organises a wide variety of machine information empowering customers to better manage their fleet. Dealers can connect to the machine remotely to troubleshoot machine issues and upgrade control software reducing the need for site visits to conduct maintenance. “
A comprehensive range of motor grade models, including the 620G, 620GP, 622G/GP, 670G/GP, 672G/GP, 770G/GP, 772G/GP, 870G/GP, and 872G/GP, will be available across Sub-Saharan Africa, according to John Deere, providing customers with a wide variety of features and technologies to match their job site requirements and budget.
Customers will be able to get help through the John Deere dealer network, and the equipment will be supported and serviced by highly trained and qualified equipment technicians who will be backed up by a network of regional parts distribution centres.
