John Deere is integrating SmartGrade, its proprietary grade control technology, into the 333G Compact Track Loader. The implementation of SmartGrade is the first time a fully integrated grade control technology will be available on compact equipment.
The SmartGrade 333G Compact Track Loader will expand the capabilities of customers working in site development, roadbuilding, landscaping, and residential and commercial building operations by enabling them to take on new tasks and larger jobs that require accuracy.
The SmartGrade 333G Compact Track Loader will increase productivity by helping to automatically complete grading tasks faster with fewer passes and less rework compared to working without grade control technology. Moreover, with the grade control system fully integrated into the machine’s structures and software, users get precise grading performance while eliminating vulnerable masts and cables.
Operators will also benefit from the launch of DozerMode, a control solution that enables the EH joystick control system to function like a crawler dozer — with the push of a button. DozerMode is beneficial when operating the machine-equipped six-way dozer blade attachment.
