Hi just looking at a kv geospreader which has a isobus plug on it. The tellus go box has a short lead with it but it doesn't connect to the iso plug. What do I need to fit this to a new Holland T6.175 which does not have isobus plug and is running a trimble fm750 screen and auto steer. I just need to understand what cables I would need to connect everything together. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I know its not isobus but I was told the tallus go will run the spreader through the isobus but the box doesnt plug directly into the spreader and then it will need the speed and position details from the fm750 for the auto section and on/off

I sure do not know what your are working with. But:

Position and speed you can get out of FM/CFX-750 as NMEA messages from serial ports (Connector A or B). Use Advanced Port Settings & NMEA output options setup to set up what messages and rate (Hz = times per second) you want.
"Radar speed" pulses are also available from Digi Out output. It is adjustable.

You need a wiring loom from KV, goes direct from the battery and has the isobus socket and wires for tellus screen. Makes the tractor isobus ready, you may also need another wire if you want to use use Trimble dome for section control.

I think that is the plug. The dealer selling it didn't seem to sure what was what and even the fitter who installs all there spreader didn't know as he isn't used to new Holland's.

That's a cable I got with mine for the JD so I could connect the spreader into the isobus plug on the rear of the tractor and that connected the tellus to the tractor isobus loom I still needed to use another source for GPS signal .

It didn't work very well so I just went back to the kv loom from the battery but made it transferable easy enough between tractors

This second hand spreader hasn't got any wiring with an isobus socket that links to the battery which I think I may of found from kv for about £500. I still then need to connect it to the FM 750 for guidance.

I use a patchwork black box to give mine a signal .

I cocked up this time as we've just changed ours and I should've just got a kv receiver to run it but forgot about it when doing the deal.
