Automate water management with iGrade™ leveling system
Precision level custom land formations to better manage water


The iGrade controller enables and automates new water management applications, as well as John Deere's existing water management tool, Surface Water Pro™ Plus system. iGrade offers the ability to generate a basic plane and grade, as well as perform distance-based tasks – all while automatically controlling the height of the scraper blade.
iGrade provides four applications to complete different tasks:
  • Surface Water Pro Plus automation
  • Grade control
  • Distance trip
  • Plane control
The iGrade controller works with many of the different John Deere Precision Ag Technology components producers may already own, such as:
  • GreenStar™ 2 2600 Display
  • StarFire™ iTC receiver
  • StarFire 3000 Receiver
  • AutoTrac™ assisted steering system
  • Surface Water Pro Plus
iGrade is approved for the following platforms:
  • 9xxx, 8xxx, and 8R Series Wheel Tractors
  • 8xxx and 8R Series Track Tractors
  • Any selective control valve (SCV) operated water-management implement approved for the above John Deere tractors
NOTE: iGrade requires the receiver to have a real-time kinetic (RTK) signal level. iGrade does not support wide-area augmentation system (WAAS), SF1, or SF2 signal levels.
