Greenstar at 17kph

Bit if a greenstar newbie here. Started spreading today with ATU 200 and 2630 screen. At 17kph, lines were very wobbly. Is this normal or have I not set something right

Try dropping your line tracking down to around 125, it’s generally a case of just playing with it until you get something like.
Try to adjust it as your going down the field until it smooths out.

It depends if your lines are short and zigzagging or long smooth waves. But it’ll be a balance of all controls settings.

If short and zigzagging dial down tracking and speed

If long and smooth tap up tracking and heading.

Part of problem is greenstar doesnt support a wheel angle sensor with an electric steering wheel as some other brands do. This makes a huge difference to steering performance, electric wheel + wheel angle sensor is near on as good as fully integrated with steer valve imo

Any system which has positional feedback is alway more accurate than one just relying on rate. I’ve used systems that track the position of the steering wheel, but they’re never as good as a proper physical wheel angle sensor.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
