After a few years of customer use, John Deere’s JD Link has benefited from customer feedback. The wireless communication system delivers location, utilization, performance and maintenance data and is offered as standard on some units. The system provides fuel data, including consumption, load utilization and gallons per hour. JD Link Provides geofencing capabilities and utilization per function such as how much time a loader spends working in third gear. It can also provide driving directions. An Alert Log with a description of each alert code can be accessed on demand, with all stop-engine alerts sent by e-mail, Internet or cell phone.
