John Deere Diagnostic Scanner

Has anyone tried one of these fault code readers?

This company apparently offers readers for several Gator models?

I have not but am interested as i know our official jd scanner is an absolute nightmare and wonder if this does any better.
Especially on the mid size tractors it just blurts out some random useless facts which give you nothing to go on and have often found more succes using the internet

Looks great it would be a fast easy hook up , let us know. The Gator is set up like the car industry sensors and codes ,but a regular reader will not pick it up all the time.
