SmartGrade Integrated Grade Control

What is SmartGrade?

Our dozers (and now select Excavators) with fully-integrated SmartGrade systems work smarter for improved uptime and efficiency.


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

SmartGradeTM Crawler Dozers

A Topcon 3D-MC2 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 Reference Ready Option

Many G-Series Excavators can be ordered with optional mounting points on link, arm, boom, upperstructure, and counterweight for grade reference system sensors of your choice.
