FJD Autosteer in UK?

I was interested enough in this system to drop a line to their sales chap and ask a few questions and been given an undoubtedly competitive quote. Not as versatile as other systems such as the Fieldbee, but appear to be more of a plug and play install.

In the advertising bumph, there is a mention of these kits being used here in the UK already. Does anyone know of anyone using one please? PM if you prefer.

Hi,
Yes, you can have it for peanuts. It is really cheap. Works good, easy to use.
Not so much options.
If you ask me, it doesn't look so confidential to me. Their approach is so agressive supported with strong marketing which makes me think that they just want to sell it and that's it.
But, this is just my opinion and my feelings.

Have you got/ordered their kit?

Pretty is a personal thing, but why do you believe the quality of the kit you got is superior? No arguments at all, just interested.
Yes, I agree with you that pretty is a personal thing.
I am not a buld quality expert nor software engineer. Only I have been doing is folowing Chineese PF industry development for 2 years. That's it.
 
I was delighted to go and see @Pedro-glebe 's FJD autosteer installation, and see it in action around the yard, and also the install in his tractor. Easyish DIY and setup (it appears), and the build quality of the external components looked better than I had expected. No wave of a rattle can of paint, on the metal work...proper finishing.

I am seriously impressed with the kit for the money, and the continual development the Company seems to be putting into the software. Not Fieldbee standard software, but very workable. All I want is simple guidance and autosteer...

Might even consider having a tablet running RTK Fieldbee at the same time, purely for the record keeping aspects... It's free!!

Now to sort out a deal :)

No, it wasn't.

I have been in touch with Elliot though. Saw the ad on fleabay, and see he has a website as well.
I have spoken to many people and it a shame some are deciding to go directly to the manufacturer to buy, there will be no support from UK dealers like myself ERH Services Ltd or Bale Barron.
Good luck….

Hi, thanks for mentioning my name… I’m trying to stop FJD selling to individual customers on a one off basis as a few customers having any problems will not get dealer support and this could lead to negative feedback on the system. If you want any professional advice about the system then give us a call. 07810860503
 
Thanks for mentioning my name, I am trying to stop FJD from selling directly to individual customers as this could lead to a negative name for the product if they need support and there is nobody available to help as they haven’t bought through a UK dealer.
I’m happy to offer professional advice to anybody who might be interested in buying through ERH Services Ltd.

No worries 👍
Didn't know you were on here otherwise I'd have tagged you.

Hi @ERH Services Ltd , I see this as your biggest struggle. You will find farmers will want to deal direct then will call you to support. Sadly ive seen this far too often. You then have to support to keep up the good image of the system. You get zero money for support and zero thanks!
