Connected Support

Get connected, stay running

When you're out in the field, the last thing you want to worry about is breaking down. Connected Support is here to help reduce, or even prevent, downtime. Newer John Deere equipment comes straight from the factory with advanced monitoring technology. Each machine is ready to alert you when something goes wrong—no matter where you are. Our team can also receive alerts and connect to your equipment to diagnose the problem. Hutson's Connected Support team is here to remotely monitor and proactively service your machines for increased uptime.

What happens when you connect your machine?

Connecting your machine gives you and Hutson both remote access to monitor your machine. We'll keep a close eye on your machine and let you know if something doesn't look right. Here's what all is included:

  • Machine Alerts: Monitor alerts from your machine remotely
  • Machine Information: Monitor engine hours, utilization, fuel level, idle time and more
  • Location History: View machine location and get notified if it moves when it's not supposed to
  • Service Advisor Remote: Hutson can perform software update remotely
  • Remote Display Access: With your consent, Hutson can remotely connect to your display and assist as needed
  • Expert Alerts: Hutson can monitor machines and address potential issues

Service Advisor Remote

This enables our service department to perform remote diagnostics in real time so they bring the right parts and tools to repair your machine. This also enables wireless software updates on most software when needed.

Expert Alerts

Expert Alerts proactively monitors machines and delivers notifications to us whenever problems are identified. This allows us to remotely diagnose issues and fix them before they become a problem.

Remote Display Access

Given your consent, we can remotely access your in-cab display to assist with setup and adjustments in real-time for optimal performance.
