jdlink_331g_5John Deere made its JDLink available as a factory-installed option on all new John Deere large-frame G-Series skid-steers (330G, 332G) and compact track loaders (331G, 333G). JDLink allows users to remotely connect with their equipment for diagnostic, safety and efficiency checks.

“John Deere has invested heavily over the last decade to become a leading technology solutions provider, not just a manufacturer that produces world-class machines,” said Paul Garcia, John Deere WorkSight product manager. “Our goal is to provide solutions, not just data, and our exclusive JDLink offering is the gateway to increased productivity, helping customers centrally and smartly manage their entire fleet and grow their business. Our customers asked for telematics capabilities on compact equipment, and we’re now delivering it as a factory option with a competitive, three-year subscription on our new large-frame skid steers and compact track loaders.”

To improve security of the machines, JDLink features geofencing, also known as virtual boundaries, and curfews, or time frames, which provide an instant alert if the machine is out of customer-defined bounds.

Users can also remotely monitor fuel and diesel exhaust fuel (DEF) and manage preventative maintenance in the in-base Maintenance Manager application, located within the JDLink dashboard, that includes a single click for online parts ordering from their local John Deere dealer.

Additionally, JDLink allows customers to see machines that are idling excessively, inactive, running at very high loads for long periods of time or moving when they shouldn’t be.
