Leica Geosystems in cooperation with the Worldwide Construction and Forestry Division of Deere & Company have announced the Leica Geosystems Ready Program for John Deere J-Series Crawler Dozers. The result is mounting hardware and interface harnesses ordered by John Deere dealers and installed by Paladin Works, which has a long-standing working relationship with the John Deere Dubuque Works factory. The program announced today is the first such arrangement between Deere’s Construction and Forestry Division and Leica.

"The mechanical portion of a machine control installation has always been the most time consuming and labor intensive portion of an installation," said Leica Geosystems OEM Business Development Manager Nick Guadagnoli, "We are now working with John Deere to drastically simplify the process and make sure John Deere's customers can get to work much quicker with the best possible equipment."

The program is easy and familiar to John Deere dealers. The John Deere-approved components are designed to mount to the various sizes of crawlers sold by John Deere. “John Deere supports Leica Geosystems creating these custom kits, allowing its products to integrate with our equipment,” said Jeffrey Finn, Manager, WorkSight Solutions at Deere. “John Deere is fully committed to its open architecture approach and giving customers a choice.”

To order the Leica Geosystems Ready Grade Control Kits, dealers use the normal John Deere ordering systems. Adding on the Leica Geosystems Ready option is as simple as selecting the corresponding AT number for the model of dozer they are configuring.

"Using the Leica Geosystems Ready Program will save our dealers time, money, and resources," said Guadagnoli, The Leica Geosystems Ready program ensures the installation is done to the guidelines Leica specifies, assuring the end result meets the strict quality standards both Leica and John Deere have consistently delivered over the years. This is key to smooth performance from the first day of operation."
