John Deere has announced that customers who purchase its four-wheel-drive L-Series wheel loaders now have the option of equipping their machinery with the John Deere Payload Weighing System integrated with Topcon. It will be available on 744L, 824L, and 844L models.
With this system in place, operators can weigh as they work, which will ultimately reduce interruptions during the job. This boosts efficiency as well, increasing the number of jobs that operators can complete in a single day. The system has an auto-accumulation feature, which allows the machine to automatically add each bucket load to an accumulating total.
“We know our customers are managing busy work schedules, and looking for opportunities to streamline jobs and boost productivity. With that in mind, the new Payload Weighing System delivers just that,” said Andrew Kahler, product marketing manager WorkSight™ solutions, John Deere. “With this new system, operators can quickly weigh and calculate loads, ensuring they accurately and consistently achieve target payloads. This streamlines the load-out process while allowing operators to focus on getting the job done.”
The system also has a tare function, which allows the operator to automatically remove the hopper or pallet weight to determine the actual weight of the material.
The production data collection of the system helps operators make more informed decisions as well. Best of all, it is integrated with JDLink telematics, which allows users to track and visualize payload data within the JDLink Portal and JDLink mobile.
