A new client, referred to us by a friend, brought his 2018 John Deere Gator to us to see if we could put a remote starter in it. His friend had a remote start put on his vehicle, and after seeing it in action, he wondered if we could o the same for his Gator. We jumped at the chance to work on this type of vehicle since it is pretty rare that we see one.
After some investigating, we found that it would be possible. Now he can now start the Gator while inside his house and have it warmed up and ready to go by the time he got to it.
While we were installing the remote start, we realized we could add a feature that would allow control of the dump bed of the Gator from the remote as well. Normally, you’d have to have the key in the ignition and the vehicle on before the dump bed would operate. Now it can be done done via the remote at any time!
