European Distribution for John Deere 622GP and 672GP Graders
John Deere is introducing its popular 622GP and 672GP motor graders to the European market via the Wirtgen Group distribution network in Germany and France.
“We are excited to leverage our relationship with the Wirtgen Group to introduce John Deere construction equipment to a new market, further expanding our global footprint,” said David Thorne, senior vice president, sales & marketing, Worldwide Construction & Forestry. “Wirtgen’s stellar reputation for supporting customers, and large distribution network, allows us to serve these new markets well offering them powerful motor grader solutions in 2 priority countries.”
The introduction is a result of increased interest in John Deere earthmoving equipment following the Wirtgen Group acquisition in 2017. Understanding motor graders are heavily used in road building applications, the synergies between the Deere models and the Wirtgen portfolio, as well as the thriving French and German markets were determining factors in bringing the machines to the continent.
The European rollout focuses on the 6-wheel drive 622GP and 672GP models. The 622GP with a 3.66 m moldboard operates at a weight of 19,078 kg, while the 672GP with a 4.27 m moldboard weighs in at 19,976 kg.
“Today is an exciting day for the Construction & Forestry Division and we couldn’t be more thrilled to bring 2 motor grader offerings to the European market,” said Luke Kurth, product marketing manager, motor graders, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “Contractors will value a superior machine that is designed to handle tough jobs. With the highest power in the class, advanced features, and virtually unobstructed, all-around visibility from the cab, the 622GP and 672GP models offer increased productivity, uptime and lower daily operating costs.”
The machines will be on display at bauma 2019, April 8-14 in Munich.
