Why should I choose Expert Check?

When you invest in your new John Deere equipment, be it a tractor, combine harvester, forage harvester, sprayer or baler - no matter what, you know you have invested in the best. Now, there are maintenance and servicing procedures that are applicable - especially where warranty is concerned, to keep the machine in absolute tip-top, factory condition.

Expert Check is a John Deere programme that we are proud to follow meticulously. Our specially trained and certified service technicians are fully conversant with every aspect of your John Deere machinery, so you know that when your machine is scheduled for an Expert Check - you have the best possible service technician, handling that procedure for that product type.

What happens when you get an Expert Check?

Let’s take the example of a John Deere 6R Series tractor undergoing an Expert Check. One of our service technicians will be assigned to the check for your tractor. For the 6R, the test consists of an 80 point ‘factory-assembled’ inspection all of which are checked/tested and signed-off on an electronic report inspection sheet.

This analysis ensures that all test pressures, and component functions are performing according to the original manufacturer’s specifications. If a component is not performing correctly, this test procedure will identify the issue and set-up an alert for further attention which might require immediate replacement or, perhaps at the next service interval. Importantly, the report gives clear concise detail on the condition of your machine as it stands.

At the same time, if there is a recorded product improvement (PIP) for your tractor, this will be automatically completed - and recorded in the system. Likewise, most machines will receive updates to their operating software, based on developments that could show improved performance - based on data fed back from the factory. Along with this, all error codes recorded are checked and diagnosed for the relevant correction procedure.

Once the Expert Check has been completed, a full inspection report is prepared and provided to the customer, pointing out any possible components that will need updating or replacing in the near/immediate future.

What are the benefits of an Expert Check?

Having your machine Expert Checked annually will help you prevent costly downtime, less breakdowns means less expense in repairs or lost production, which optimises cost of operation. When the time comes to replace your equipment, Expert Check provides a full operating history of machine performance and can enhance the used resale value. Likewise, once your machine has gone through Expert Check, it will be performing as close to original output, which means greater fuel efficiency, more work done, and complete peace of mind.
