JDLink Connect™ - Stay connected to your farming operation without being in your cab.

A solution for customers and managers who desire to take their operation to the next level of productivity and efficiency without leaving the office! Manage your operation in real-time without being in the cab. Using the power of JDLink Connect you can optimize productivity, increase uptime and boost profits with machine information accessible from a laptop, desktop or mobile device.

  • Stay informed on machine location and hours.
  • Protect your assets with Geofence and Curfew alerts.
  • Keep your assets running with maintenance tracking and preventive maintenance plans.
  • Track and analyze machine and fuel usage to make operation management decisions.
  • Save time - conduct remote machine diagnostics with Remote Display Access™ and Service ADVISOR™ Remote.

JDLink works by combining a controller (MTG) that includes cellular communication and GPS antennas. Machine data is collected by the controller and wirelessly transferred to a data server, where it's made available via the JDLink website. An optional satellite modem is available for areas where cellular signals are not available or reliable. JDLink will still connect via cellular connection unless a connection cannot be established. Then JDLink will switch over to satellite mode.

Stay connected on-the-go.

Locate machines on the go with the iPhone, iPad or Android devices JDLink app. No need to start up your desktop, launching the app only takes a few seconds.

Users are able to.

  • Access directions to machines from any location.
  • Receive and acknowledge machine alerts.
  • Ping machines for notifications

The JDLink app is avaliable through iTunes and Google Play stores.


How can JDLink Connect improve your operation?

Monitoring machine locations - By seeing where machines are, it is possible to make sure operators are getting to the right fields. It also gives management a visualization of where different operations are so they can plan supply and maintenance runs.

Keeping an eye on service intervals - Watching machine hours and service intervals allows for planning of machine usage. It is easy to get on JDLink to see what the next service interval is for a machine. In seeing that information management can send a machine that is in less need of service for a particular operation and take care of the machine that is due.

Monitoring fuel consumption - Fuel usage has proven to be a great benefit to fleet efficiency and operational costs in two ways. First, with multiple like-machines running, they can be compared against each other to see what their average fuel consumption is. For example, if one tractor is using noticeably more fuel on average than another, it can be looked into in order to maximize the efficiency of both machines. By having the data easily available, it is possible to see where the fuel is going faster, which leads to being able to get the average fuel consumption down, at least on the one using more fuel. Even more, it opens the door to exploring where fuel can be saved on both machines.
Secondly, fuel delivery can be managed. By monitoring the fuel level of the fleet, the fuel truck can be dispatched to where fuel is needed first. If a tractor is 15 miles out at the end of the day and has little fuel, the truck can get fuel there for the operator to make it back. If another tractor has a half tank at another field, the truck doesn’t need to make the run and can instead tend to the machine or operator that needs fuel.

Monitoring alert codes to prevent larger problems - The alert codes are a great benefit. By being able to monitor problems, such as low hydraulic oil level, the maintenance crew can stay on top of them. Our service department has the alerts coming through as well- in several past cases there have been alerts that showed to be the beginning stages of much bigger problems. Our service department then notifies the customer, dispatches a tech, and minimizes the machine downtime by getting an early diagnosis and preventative fix before the machines are run beyond a quick, efficient repair.
