Leica Ready now offered on John Deere motor graders

New collaboration brings increased efficiency to heavy construction industry

(Heerbrugg, Switzerland, 1 March 2017) – Leica Geosystems, industry leader in measurement technology, announced today its Leica Ready machine control kits will now be offered on GP-series motor graders by John Deere, a world leader in providing advanced construction products and services.  

Leica Ready enables swift and fast installation of Leica Geosystems' Machine Control systems, such as Leica iCON iGG4 Dual GNSS for motor graders. The Leica Ready grader kits are made up of pre-installed cables and brackets, providing for an easier installation of Leica iCON grade solutions.

“Offering such built-in and integrated solutions on John Deere graders brings added value to customers worldwide,” says Johan Arnberg, president of the Leica Geosystems Machine Control Division. “Enabling easy access to this technology improves productivity and increases efficiency. We are proud to work with John Deere to help shape the industry.”

Ultimate grade control for motor graders
Leica iCON grade solutions for motor graders offer new site preparation possibilities. The system regulates the elevation and cross slope by means of robust and high-tech sensors. Improving productivity as well as saving material costs, the system is ideal for contractors working in highway construction, site preparation, road maintenance and other public works, and housing and subdivision development. Any construction project where motor graders are used for preparing sub-grade for finished layers can benefit from this technology.

“Building on our position as the customer’s grader of choice, we are excited to work with Leica Geosystems and expand our open architecture ready offerings with a new option for our Grade Pro (GP) motor graders,” said Domenic Ruccolo, senior vice president, sales and marketing, Worldwide Construction & Forestry Division. “The grade control ready option comes factory equipped with everything needed to quickly install a state-of-the-art Leica iCON grade solution, eliminating the need for welding and splicing, along with cutting 3D install times in half. We believe customers will be up and running faster with Deere.”
