Trimble has received a John Deere supplier innovation award for 2014. Trimble supplies its LOADRITE L2180 loader scales to John Deere.

Presented to a select group of suppliers who have demonstrated innovation in a product or service provided to John Deere, the awards are given on the basis of creativity, feasibility, collaboration and bottom-line impact of the solution. John Deere created the supplier innovation awards in 2010 to promote innovation in the company’s supply base and recognise creative thinkers.

Trimble LOADRITE general manager Johan Smet commented that Deere has recognised the customer’s need for payload management as part of the WorkSight solutions portfolio. Deere selected LOADRITE as its onboard weighing solution specialist, with a commitment to accuracy and quality.

The LOADRITE product is backed by Trimble’s factory trained and authorised international installation and support team. Trimble has been supplying solutions to Deere for over twenty years.

The LOADRITE L2180 technology has been enhanced to create a deeper integration with Deere loaders, including WorkSight. LOADRITE L2180 loader scales are available as a factory orderable option on Deere 444 to 844 four-wheel drive loader (4WDL) models. Onboard scales help loaders optimise truck payload, process and efficiency as well as avoid overload fines. Managers can track payload data and use it to improve cycle times, truck turnaround or payload accuracy.

LOADRITE loader scales, excavator scales or conveyor belt scales are available from LOADRITE Authorised Distributors worldwide.
