Precision Construction provides customers with a suite of technology solutions focused on maximizing uptime and delivering increased productivity.
“Since the beginning, delivering innovative solutions to our customers has been a core focus for John Deere, and the Precision Construction portfolio is taking that commitment to the next level,” said Andrew Kahler, manager, technology solutions, John Deere. “In recent years, we’ve unveiled an array of technology solutions that directly address our customers’ concerns on the jobsite. Now, we’re building on that foundation, pushing down on the gas pedal, and moving the industry toward the next generation of smart machine solutions.”
With Precision Construction, the existing John Deere technology portfolio is restructured, making it easier for customers to select solutions that help them resolve pain points on the jobsite. The result is a suite of solutions focused on maximizing uptime and helping contractors efficiently accomplish more each day. Organizing the current offerings into four pillars, Connected Support, Grade Management, Payload Weighing and JDLink Telematics, this shift enables customers to identify and incorporate technology solutions based on their unique needs. Moving forward, John Deere will add to the capabilities in these core areas while also carving a path for new introductions that further support the automation-to-autonomy journey.

Additionally, John Deere announces its preventative maintenance program for construction equipment, John Deere Protect. With John Deere Protect, required maintenance is performed at every 500-hour interval by an experienced dealer service technician.
“Our customers are balancing numerous things every day, from managing operators to looking ahead at projections to ensure the long-term success of their business. Through the John Deere Protect program, we’re taking away a worry — machine uptime — and putting it into the hands of our trusted and experienced dealer technicians,” said Mark Wagner, manager of service business for the John Deere Construction and Forestry Service Business. “The John Deere Protect program adds a layer of certainty and predictability with machine costs and downtime, giving owners the room to focus on other aspects of their business.”
First introduced on the John Deere Ag business, John Deere is extending the program to the construction lineup.
“We started piloting this program in early 2021 with a select group of dealers, and the feedback we have received so far has been extremely positive. A main benefit of the program is that the task of maintaining machines is put into the hands of our dealers. As a result, our customers are more confident because they know their equipment is being watched by an expert. When combined with the power of JDLink telematics, the dealer can monitor machine status and proactively perform scheduled service, eliminating missed service internals and reducing unexpected downtime,” Wagner said.
The John Deere Protect program will be available for select John Deere construction equipment in the United States and Canada starting in May 2021.
