    Have been thinking about fitting a level sensor in the hopper of my Fanjet Pro. as when its on the back of the gator its difficult to keep an eye on seed level.

    Anyone already done this or similar?

    I wouldn't bother with a sensor.
    Just stick a cheapo ebay screen on the gator, and camera in the hopper.

    This is what I use in my combination drill and then move camera to fert spinner.
    Stick camera on a good magnet and it's easy to move about could leave it on the back of your gator all the time.
    Wouldn't use either without it now.

    Knocked this together for someone a while back

    The frame sits on the floor with two bolts that go through the floor screwed into nuts welded onto corner flitch plates that I welded to the runners and cross members of underside of tipping body, so quick to remove.
    If you zoom in on first pic you will see one of the bolts.
