The new John Deere Worksite Pro RL66 and RL84 Roller Levels make grading, leveling and contouring with detail control a breeze for skid steer operators.

These new attachments-an exclusive product of John Deere-are a patented box blade with roller level that can do landscape and site preparatory work without hydraulics. As a result, the initial cost and operating costs are less than other final grade tools. And uptime is maximized, since the roller level is a simple mechanical attachment with no hydraulic motors. Two grease able bearings and two replaceable cutting edges also enhance uptime.

Productivity and versatility are key strengths of John Deere's roller levels. They provide an alternative for more costly attachments in many applications. Unlike a power rake, these roller levels do not disturb the sub soil, which is key to leaving the sub soil compacted for asphalt and concrete jobs. And, the cutting edge shaves the surface of the soil, creating a good bed for seeding or leveling with the box blade.

These tools also are more productive because the operating speed isn't limited by hydraulics.

John Deere is a manufacturer of agricultural and forestry equipment; a major manufacturer of construction equipment; and a leading supplier of equipment used in lawn, grounds and turf care. Additionally, John Deere manufactures engines used in heavy equipment and provides financial services and other related activities that support the core businesses. Since it was founded in 1837, the company has established a heritage of quality products and services providing performance that endures to customers worldwide.
