    Fendt Contour Assist worth it?

    Currently drilling headlands on the adaptive curve settingthen adding straight AB. Works ok. Is contour assist/segments worth it to make it easier. Drill has no markers. What else does it allow you to do? Drilling headland with 750a with no markers can sometimes be tricky to get marks correct. Will

    Fendt VarioGuide implement problem.

    We have just had a software upgrade in our 724 to unlock Contour Assist which works fine. However we now have a problem where a trailed implement when operating in a dead straight line maps askew to the tractor. Not in an offset manner but the left hand side further back. This is ok if you're...

    Drilling advice needed

    Drilling with autosteer RTk on new Holland tractor. Up until now on 24 m tramlines I have had to overlap a half run with our 4m drill. This has been enough to take out any small kinks in the field. Gone to 28m now so won't have to do half width overlap. Will drill the first tramline in...

    Morning all, in January our local JD dealer said we needed an update on our star fire 3000 with 2600 screen. We bought this new in 2013 with our combine. We have a bracket and harness set up on our Fendt 718 and transfer the kit between the combine and the tractor as needed. He brought down a...

    John Deere ITC dome

    Are these of any use now? I bought one 5 second hand of my dealer 5 years ago to run with an Amazone fertiliser spreader with section control. I have since bought 2 R series John Deeres with autotrac. The first I used my ITC dome on it and the second was ordered with a 6000 dome. The 6000 is...

    Auto Steer justification

    We are having a demo of a Trimble/RTK guidance system of our main tractor. My Son and I are very impressed however my Wife says it’s very expensive and our tractor driver can drive straight anyway. How do I justify it to her.

    Nh intelliview iv experts

    When I setup a new headland it automatically sets it up as half the implements width. This is fine when spreading fert etc. It puts me 18m from boundary @36m. Its annoying though when drilling as always 2m out on 4m drill. Does anyone know how to cancel half width default?
