The integrated Topcon 3D-MC2 Grade Control System improves job site accuracy and work quality delivering precise grading performance while eliminating vulnerable external masts and cables.

The 650K SmartGrade boasts a 104 horsepower Final Tier 4 John Deere engine. The model’s cab-forward designs make visibility, safety, and precise grading a priority. Exclusive Total Machine Control comes standard with this model, providing personalization options and optimal comfort.

Since SmartGrade is integrated into the machines, it removes the need to install blade-mounted sensors and components daily, reducing setup time and allowing operators to get to work. Eliminating external cables to the masts reduces breakage, and the removal of the masts from the blade eliminates vulnerability to damage and theft.

The Auto SmartGrade feature identifies the soil type and easily adjusts the machine to new terrain, without operators having to adjust the blades manually. Operators can easily select the application type-grading, cutting, spreading, load setting high, medium, low and soil conditions hard, packed, loose. This feature stops slippage before it occurs by automatically lifting the blade. It also reduces the number of passes required to complete a job, reducing the wear of the undercarriage over time.

All SmartGrade machines are now available in LGP or XLT track configurations. The LGP configuration is ideal for customers who operate on low ground pressure conditions, such as damp or wet terrains, or on a steep slope. LGP models contain a wider than usual track gauge that provides excellent stability and blade control for light grading jobs. In contrast, the XLT configuration is best for rocky terrains and can withstand heavier loads.
