Is your 4m a true 4m between outside discs ? Only ask as know of someone who has stopped tramlining his fields as found he always had narrow trams for liquid fert . Sure he said his 3m was only 2.95 or there abouts so could never get true trams unless looking like he had held too wide
that will be an amazone? ;)
 
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 square headland mode so I'm not putting the sprayer boom into fence. How big a nudge do you normally put in to put up first straight? Is there anyway of calculating it using gps?

I know you "progressive farmers" don't do tramlines but don't have autosteer on sprayer tractor.
I stopped using the headland mode on Trimble and just drill outside of field on ab lines instead then corners are square. With the next function for scrolling through ab lines it’s easy.

We did that for a start, then started mapping headlands. It's annoying they stay curved on square headland mode even when you adjust min turn radius.

Always seem to end up drilling headlands in dark, have to be ready to grab steering wheel as you come into a corner. 🤦‍♂️
