New Graders Offer Unrivaled Choice, Productivity

John Deere has revolutionized motor graders with its new G-Series, offering users a choice of console-mounted industry standard controls or armrest-mounted industry standard fingertip controls, as well as features like cross slope control, automatic differential lock and a rearview camera.

Using extensive customer input and the successful D-Series as a platform, Deere is introducing six G-Series models, ranging from 185 to 275 hp, each engineered for increased productivity, reliability, durability, serviceability and low daily operating costs.

With its G-Series graders, Deere is offering the industry unequalled choices. In controls, choose from the console-mounted low-effort industry standard control pattern or intuitive and easy-to-use armrest-mounted industry standard fingertip controls. If an operator specifies the fingertip controls, he will still have a choice between using lever steering or the ever-present steering wheel.

Either way, G-Series controls provide a smooth, predictable response and plenty of power whether the application calls for heavy blading or fine grading.

There is also a choice of ground-engaging tools. G-Series graders are available with a front- or mid-mount scarifier, or a rear ripper/scarifier.

For road builders, larger site prep contractors and counties with many road miles to maintain, the G-Series’ Grade Pro package offers a suite of productivity-enhancing features for high-production grading.

Grade Pro models have industry-standard pattern fingertip controls, located on the armrest. They offer lever steering and the steering wheel for operators who prefer traditional steering.

With the push of a button, operators can engage return-to-straight, bringing the rear frame back to center. Exclusive cross slope control allows operators to select a desired slope and maintain it with just one blade lift lever. Slope control technology can assist less experienced operators.

All John Deere G-Series Grade Pro units are grade-control ready. These machines can accept Trimble® or Topcon® grade control systems, whichever manufacturer the customer prefers. All automatic grade control buttons and controls are integrated into the control levers.
