We have reviewed this site before, however there are two significant additions
to the site including a "Compare" link which offers competitive spec comparisons
and a "Build Your Own" link. The "Compare" feature includes a database
with specs for John Deere equipment and comparable competitive models listed
side-by-side, allowing the customer to directly compare the equipment.
The "Build Your Own" section hooks a customer into an online product configuration
that includes all of the engineering build rules, allowing him to build a
piece of equipment exactly the way he wants it, and then send it to the local
dealer electronically for a quote. Each product in the construction
and forestry line-up includes these features.
