John Deere has announced the Earthmoving Productivity System, a new technological offering tasked with meeting the demands of customers looking to boost efficiency. The Earthmoving Productivity System is designed to improve the measurement accuracy of volume loaded into a scraper in real-time. The data is then transferred directly to the JDLink™ Dashboard via JDLink™ Connectivity to help users make smarter business decisions.
"Customers in site development can now further manage their cost per yard and especially benefit by maximizing trip capacity and preventing spillage," said Justin Steger, solutions marketing manager for John Deere. "This technology can be a game-changer for customers completing scraping and earthmoving projects, and once integrated on the job, will become a critical system for operators."
The Earthmoving Productivity System technology captures images from inside of the scraper, which are then displayed to the operator as the yardage being loaded is calculated in real-time. Additionally, the visual display shows the products as they are being loaded into the scraper. The yardage estimate is totaled after each cycle and saved to help operators gauge their daily productivity.
The 3-D camera of the Earthmoving Productivity System provides a live video feed of the scraper pan for more clarity. The system's integrated solutions also offer advanced machine data, such as wheel slip and total fuel burn. Operators will have all of the data and insight they need to increase their daily productivity.
The Earthmoving Productivity System can be installed on single, double, or triple scraper systems and retrofitted on all D-Series Scrapers. It is also compatible with select John Deere Scraper Special Tractors (2015 or newer). More information can be found by contacting your local John Deere dealer or visiting www.JohnDeere.com.
