Intelligence and Productivity

We make it easy for you to benefit from having a connected tractor in your operation. All tractors now come standard with JDLink™ and five years of connected service.* With a new StarFire™ 6000 Integrated Receiver and Generation 4 CommandCenter™ Display, you can easily step right into advanced technology. If you’re an advanced tech user, you’ll enjoy the benefits of having a highly intelligent machine connected to a full suite of solutions on the most open platform in the industry.

*Activation/subscription required. Some additional accessories and/or components may be required. JDLink requires a cellular connection to transfer information from machine to JDLink website. Consult your John Deere Dealer for coverage availability. Gen 4 Activations are machine specific activations that remain with the tractor.
