Got a tractor for a demo it was dropped off when I was busy so haven't been shown what to do my fault not the dealer before anyone says anything.

Is there an easier way to change the cruise speeds other than going through the screen??

Never driven a auto command nh. Maybe one day maybe not.

I don’t change the cruise speeds enough to be looking for it on the joystick but one job it would be handy is digging spuds but never done that with my Fendt.
When I'm baling I often tweak it slightly to try and maintain flakes per bale.

That would be only time I use it on the move.

only baled 11 square bales with Fendt so far. 1000 acres to do as soon as it’s cured properly though. All other baling was 18 years ago before cvt.

crops quite variable here so not sure I’ll be using cruise for baling anyhow

My dealer told me recently that he can now only get the new cab layout

@KB6930 you can also set the memo speeds which will send the tractor to a particular speed if you change direction. About the only time I use it is ploughing.

Sure you won't have many lumps in Australia. But CVT transmission great for baling. If you come to a lump just pull back the stick. Can fine tune speed as mentioned.

JD dealer pointed out when we bought our auto power. If you tweak speed by 0.2mph. In ten hours you'll bale another 2 miles of straw. I know that's not entirely true when you take into account turning etc.

Try jd command pro, can adjust cruise in the screen, by simply holding the cruise buttons down for a second or two, or fine tuning with a roller on the joystick.

Thanks yeah I spotted them.

What's the button in the floor at your right heel ? Exhaust brake ?

most baling will be oats for export hay. Shouldn’t be many lumps but headlands can be bit lumpy with rake ins and outs. Cvt will be a dream on baler rather than the 8000 jd I’m used to.

Written by Justin Roberts

Claas has taken a minority shareholding in the Dutch autonomous tractor startup company, AgXeed B.V.

The new company has developed a tractor designed to be autonomous from the ground up, rather than try to adapt existing machines, or create smaller robots dedicated to a limited range of tasks.

AgXeed’s pilot machine is a diesel hybrid powered unit on tracks which uses a suite of software which, the company claims, is easily scalable.

Like many small technology start-ups seeking to gain a foothold in the machinery market, the company also points to the product as being part of a larger system rather than just another way of performing standard tasks
