John Deere is relaunching it’s Construction & Forestry business in Australia, partnering with dealers RDO Equipment and AFGRI Equipment to serve construction and forestry professionals throughout the country. The new market focus allows Deere to provide a broader equipment line, dedicated support, and cutting-edge technology, it says.

John Deere has invested heavily to support our dealers with in-country parts.

"It’s a new day for John Deere Construction & Forestry in Australia as we bring new products to market, including excavators and ADTs," says Jeff Kraft, managing director for Asia Pacific and Africa.

"But that’s not all. Our new dealer channel is ready to sell and support the full line of John Deere construction equipment, and partner with customers to keep them up and running.

"John Deere has invested heavily to support our dealers with in-country parts and specialists on the ground," adds Andy Tomkins, customer and product support manager.

"Contractors can expect the same reliability and durability they’ve come to know from the John Deere brand."

John Deere will leverage its broad lineup of construction equipment for the Australian market, including: motor graders, crawler dozers, wheel loaders, backhoe loaders, and articulated dump trucks.

Later this year, compact excavators and loaders as well as skid steers will be available. Next year, John Deere will bring its lineup of E-Series-II excavators to the Australian market. In forestry, John Deere will continue to offer a broad lineup of both full tree and cut-to-length harvesting solutions. All the equipment will be sourced from seven John Deere factories across six countries to better meet customer needs based on engine tiers and technologies.

In addition to the expanded equipment offerings, John Deere will also continue its focus on Ultimate Uptime featuring John Deere WorkSight technology. This suite of easy-to-use technology solutions will optimize machines, uptime and jobsites, says the company, and boasts JDLink telematics, machine health, remote diagnostics and programming, payload weighing and fully integrated grade control.

"We’re excited to assist customers to embrace the increased efficiencies offered by our technology suites," says Kraft.
