Deere release first compact machine with SmartGrade Tech

John Deere have released the SmartGrade 333G compact track loader, the industry’s first compact machine equipped with integrated grade control. SmartGrade is Deere’s proprietary grade control technology. The technology increases productivity by helping to automatically complete grading tasks faster with fewer passes and less rework, compared to working without grade control technology. With the technology, the 333G automatically controls the custom-engineered six-way blade, helping both new and experienced operators finish their task faster. It also helps operators to precision grade in tight spots crawlers can’t reach. AFGRI Equipment general manager – construction and forestry James Mckillop said the SmartGrade 333G is already receiving a lot of attention. “The versatility and precision with the 333G SmartGrade is going to be a gamechanger for a lot of operators,” James said. The track loader also features the new DozerMode, a breakthrough control solution that enables the EH joy-stick control system to function like a crawler dozer with the push of a button.
