John Deere SmartGrade Mastless Motor Grader

A Closer Look at the John Deere SmartGrade Mastless Motor Grader

Posted on

You’ve heard of SmartGrade technology. Now see how it works in a motor grader, fully-integrated into the machine. The GP872 John Deere grader is the first mastless motor grader and features integrated SmartGrade technology. The mastless design eliminates issues with external masts and cables, allowing better maneuverability and versatility on the jobsite. From articulation to sideshifting in tight corners or other unique jobsite conditions, an operator now can cut into a grade that wouldn’t be possible with a mast design.

Watch this Deere motor grader walkaround with the SmartGrade mastless design and Topcon 3D-MC2 technology built into the machine, similar to the John Deere SmartGrade dozer, and learn more about how Smart Grade works on the jobsite.
