John Deere announced a master supply agreement with Mobile Track Solutions L.L.C., an Elkader, Iowa-based manufacturer of towed scrapers.

As a part of the agreement, Mobile Track Solutions will provide the John Deere-branded greater than 27-cu.-yd. capacity towed scrapers for distribution through the John Deere construction and agriculture dealer networks.

"The trend for a single large-capacity scraper pulled by either an articulated dump truck or large tractor continues to grow as an earthmoving solution for many contractors" said Jason Daly, global director, production systems, technology, marketing of John Deere Construction & Forestry. "Combining the advanced features of the proven John Deere 460E-II ADT or 9R Series scraper tractor, along with the quality and durability of the new John Deere scraper, will provide a powerful solution for customers."

Designed to be pulled by the John Deere 460E-II articulated dump truck or 9R Series scraper tractor, the addition of the greater than 27-cu.-yd. scraper solution will help boost efficiency in large-capacity earthmoving applications and increase machine versatility, according to John Deere. To further enhance job site performance, the John Deere large capacity scrapers will be available with technology solutions, including automation features, with plans to add new offerings such as an earthmoving productivity system in the future. The John Deere earthmoving productivity system debuted at ConExpo 2020 and when launched will provide a solution to measure volume in the scraper in real time, helping maximize trip capacity and prevent spillage.

The system will be available through an in-cab monitor, as well as offboard in the JDLink dashboard, giving the operator visibility to the inside of the scraper as well as key production data. As a result, customers will be able to improve work site efficiency and more accurately bid, plan and invoice jobs, according to John Deere. By developing the scraper earthmoving productivity system, John Deere is broadening its offerings in precision construction solutions and equipment innovations.

Initially, the John Deere scrapers will be distributed through construction and agriculture equipment dealers in the United States and Canada, with start of sales to be announced at a later date.
