The G-Series 4WD or 6WD Motor Grader: 10 Reasons Why It’s Your Construction Game-Changer!

Embarking on a construction project or considering a significant equipment upgrade? In this guide, we unravel the key aspects of this machine, covering everything from its fundamental role in construction to the remarkable features that set it apart. Before you make your investment, arm yourself with the knowledge to make an informed decision.

Understanding the Basics: What is a Motor Grader?

Motor graders are primarily made to scrape and shift layers of soil in order to form smooth and level surfaces. Machines are equipped with a large, adjustable blade located between the front and rear axles. The blade is used for cutting, spreading, and leveling materials during grading operations. Blades are usually hydraulically controlled for precise adjustments.

Where Does the G-Series Work Its Magic?

The G-Series 4WD Motor Grader is a versatile workhorse, finding its place in a variety of environments.

  • Road Construction and Maintenance
  • Construction Sites
  • Airport Runways
  • Parking Lots
  • Mining Operations
  • Haulage Roads
  • Land Reclamation
  • Railway Construction
  • Landscaping and Earthmoving
  • Sports Fields and Stadiums

Top 10 Compelling Reasons to Choose the G-Series:

  1. Seamless Shifting Experience with PowerShift Plus

This innovation allows operators to effortlessly switch the machine from moving forward to reverse, regardless of the gear, at any point in time. This feature is present in all G and Grade Pro (GP) models, making gear selection smooth and convenient during operation. Add to that intuitive event based shifting (EBS), inching pedal and 8 forward and reverse gears for maximum options.

2. Precision Control with Dual Joystick Controls

Exclusive to all GP models and G series, the Deere dual-joystick controls demand noticeably less wrist motion for maneuvering the motor grader compared to competing joystick controls. This feature enhances precision and ease of operation, providing a distinct advantage in control and precision applications.

3. Return-to-Straight Feature:

The innovative “Return-to-Straight” feature effortlessly straightens an articulated frame with a simple button press, ensuring quicker work cycles and enhanced efficiency.

4. The automated cross-slope Feature

This feature simplifies maintaining a consistent slope by consolidating operations into a single lever. This GP feature benefits both seasoned operators, allowing them to perform at their best, and new operators, enabling a quicker learning curve.

5. Expansive View Update for Precision Grading

The installation of state-of-the-art panoramic cameras (optional) on our motor graders provided operators with an expansive view update, transforming their working experience and enhancing precision during grading operations.

All-around visibility is virtually unobstructed, with a clear view to the heel and toe, and behind the moldboard.

6. Storage Upgrades

Enjoy ample storage options with numerous overhead compartments, providing space for your belongings. Additionally, you’ll find designated areas for a beverage, cooler, cell phone, and other personal items, ensuring convenient storage for all your essentials.

7. Safety Features

Designed to enhance safety, the lights remain active even after the machine is shut down. Subsequently, they automatically turn off, thanks to egress control, promoting a secure exit from the cab in low-light conditions. This not only ensures safety but also conserves battery power for optimal efficiency.

8. Effortless Park Brake Access

Accessing the park brake is effortless with our user-friendly design. The sealed-switch module facilitates push-button control of essential machine functions, guaranteeing both ease of use and operational efficiency.

9. User-Friendly Interface with LCD Hi-Vis Monitor

The LCD hi-vis monitor simplifies access to crucial data by offering an intuitive, push-button interface. It provides easy navigation through straightforward icons and menus, ensuring user-friendly access to essential machine information.

All John Deere Motor graders are fitted with industry leading JDLink architecture which allows for data analytics, Machine health monitoring, wireless diagnostic checks and usage insights. All of this information helps customers and dealers have a better situational awareness of the equipment in its natural habitat. Keeping uptime and productivity to a maximum, ensuring a world class experience.
