John Deere has added new features to its GP-Series motor graders — Auto-Pass, Auto-Shift Plus, Configurable Float, and SmartGrade Remote Support.

The industry-exclusive Auto-Pass and Auto-Shift PLUS technologies work together to reduce fatigue and create an enhanced operating experience. Auto-Pass automates machine movements, while the Auto-Shift Plus transmission upgrade allows for the machine to completely stop and start without the use of an inching pedal, allowing for smoother navigation around obstacles. The all-new

Configurable Float technology adds functionality by allowing operators to assign any auxiliary valve to the float switches.

Now a standard feature on the SmartGrade motor graders, SmartGrade Remote Support connects the dealer to the machine, even from miles away. The dealer can troubleshoot machine issues and update grade control software from the dealership, reducing downtime. For customers, SmartGrade Remote Support enables the remote transfer of project files, eliminating the need to visit the machine in person.
