John Deere launches performance tiers, certified rebuild centres at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020
Tiering will roll out on select machines, which will be designated as a G tier, P tier or X tier
Beginning in 2021, John Deere Performance Tiering will roll out within select new construction and compact machine categories. Machines will be designated as a G tier, P tier or X tier. The tiers are defined by different equipment attributes, ranging from application life, performance, serviceability, innovation and operator comfort — each at different price levels — and will provide customers with a choice when purchasing the right piece of equipment for their application.
G-tier models provide proven capabilities and value with the reliability and ruggedness the industry expects from John Deere in common construction jobs.
P-tier models produce at high levels, while advanced features deliver exceptional performance, efficiency, comfort and service life in demanding high-production applications.
X-tier models deliver the highest levels of productivity, efficiency and user experience.
In addition to providing customers with more choices in terms of new products, John Deere's dealer network also provides users with machine rebuild options to extend the life of machines with enhancements to the Powertrain ReLife Plus program and the new John Deere Certified Rebuild Centers.
Certified Rebuild Centers are dealer facilities certified by John Deere as meeting location-specific criteria for performing machine rebuilds. These certified locations have the expertise to help customers customize their machine rebuild for their specific needs.
John Deere Certified Rebuild Centers use consistent processes to inspect the condition of a machine and assess its performance. Once that machine's specific needs are understood and communicated to the customer, a customized rebuild plan is developed based on the customer's needs for that piece of equipment, and the rebuild is then conducted by certified technicians.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
