Why Ultimate Uptime Makes Sense (and Cents!)

Forestry crew walks in a jobsite

Loggers contend with many variables in their business – terrain, weather, quotas, and operators, to name a few. But perhaps none are more frustrating, or costly, than when a machine is down for unplanned maintenance and repairs. Ultimate Uptime, featuring John Deere ForestSight™ technologies coupled with services, such as Extended Warranty and Preventative Maintenance (PM) programs, is offered by your John Deere dealer. It can be customized to fit your needs and take a load of worry off your mind.

 

More machine availability

Ultimate Uptime ensures that your maintenance is completed in the most effective way possible – with factory-trained dealer technicians utilizing the most advanced tools and factory-recommended parts to complete major service and repairs. This not only reduces machine downtime, but also frees up your manpower to focus only on minor issues and spend the rest of their time on more revenue-generating activities.

 

Planned versus unplanned

Using JDLink™ data, dealer technicians can forecast maintenance intervals to schedule repairs during non-productive times, such as nights, weekends, or rainy days. Moreover, by proactively monitoring alerts, they can often prevent problems before they occur.

 

Fixed costs

An Ultimate Uptime agreement with Powertrain Extended Warranty allows you to roll your maintenance costs and major component repairs into the financing of your monthly machine payment, making your costs predictable.

 

Resale value

An on-purpose, dealer managed, PM program ensures that necessary maintenance does not take a back seat to the demands of a production schedule. When it comes time to sell or trade your machine, the next owner can have peace of mind knowing that this well-documented maintenance program has maximized the performance and the life of the machine, potentially adding value to the resale transaction.
