iGrade, John Deere
The iGrade Water Management solution now incorporates additional features that allow operators to optimize their earth-moving operations and minimize costs. The add-on enables users to create cut-fill maps that show where the land needs to be formed to generate the desired surface. The iGrade then utilizes the cut-fill map along with RTK GPS position data to automatically control the scraper blade to form the surface to the desired contour. This feature can be utilized by the operator without leaving the cab of the tractor to maximize productivity. The solution can also be used to design surface drainages, contours and terraces making it a powerful tool for water management.
