Grade-Control Options

Grade-Control Options


Your dozer or motor grader will come pre-plumbed, wired, and ready for easy installation of the grade-control system you choose, be it Topcon, Trimble, or Leica.

SmartGrade™ Crawler Dozers and Motor Graders 

A 3D grade control system is fully integrated into the machine. There are no external masts or cables, and the complete system is supported by your John Deere dealer.

Excavator Grade Guidance Options

Factory-installed grade guidance is available on select G-Series Excavators to boost efficiency on your jobsite. Many G-Series Excavators can also be ordered with optional mounting points on link, arm, boom, upperstructure, and counterweight for grade reference system sensors of your choice.

Grade-control accuracy also makes it easier to:

  • Calculate more accurate estimates.
  • Eliminate placing and replacing stakes.
  • Eliminate the need for the operator to exit the cab to check the grade.
  • Complete tasks sooner so you can move on to the next job.
