Auto steer for John Deere 7810

Location

No wheel angle sensor? I'd expect compromised performance.

Sounds like no connection to the existing tractor electronics, except power? Any non-JD set would fit equally. Compare price and features.

How about correction signal for drilling? Unlocks, yearly fees and any additional HW?

Because the 7810 is none steering ready etc your in the position where all options are open I’d only have plumbed systems for drilling as others said which aren’t difficult to fit. Do you have auto steer on anything else if not talk to all the options and see what fits best Trimble, topcon (LH Agro), Agleader (precise solutions) and of jd. But think what you may want in the future so you dont restrict yourself

Planning on keeping tractor for a while so want the system to be right so budget investment good.

Have thought about atu but think the steering column is big and clumsey

If you like the Agleader talk to Derek and co they can fit it to a 7810 no problem and at least you get commonality of AB lines between machines and operating logic so you won’t be learning a new system.

I have fitted the ATU and a 2600 screen in a 7810. It is bulky, but you soon get used to it. The accuracy with a 3000 receiver on sf1 was good enough for drilling.
We struggle to drill with SF1 on a 3000. Need SF2 I would say. We have just ugraded to the 6000 dome which I am assured will work on our 2600 screen. They have got some good offers on at the moment.
We used an ATU on our Challenger 75. Seemed to work well enough.

Odd if you do not believe what is written in internet. :) I've tried to state on every thread like this that personal expectations about "sufficient" accuracy are different. Better to refer to manufacturer accuracy figures and let everyone pick up what suits them best (cost, accuracy etc.).

I couldn't give a ---- what's on the internet, its usually sales pitch.
The OP has asked for views, I've given mine. I know some drill on SF1 and are happy, I'm not, but I suppose it makes not a jot of difference to the field yield.

For info, we mainly use Trimble on Centrepoint Fast for drilling and on the sprayer. For arable it is so close to RTK as makes no difference, unless you are inter-row hoeing or something, and it doesn't drift.

ATU is perfect for drilling, 2630 screen and SF1 on a sf6000 receiver. ATU work perfectly but it requires about 20 seconds to fine tune the settings for the job you are doing. In my experience

Apologies, the first sentence was supposed to be a joke, smiley added to make it clear. Obviously a bad joke.

My real opinion was really the same as yours.
