Subject: RE: Glare on my monitors

Near Intersection of I-35 & I-90 Southern Mn.
Glare bothers me terribly due to wearing glasses and old age. There are screens etc. to place on the monitors but they haven't been that helpful to me. Some displays have an optional Sun Guard that can be attached but I don't care for them either.

I've found through the years that what works best for me is to mount the displays high up in the corner of the cab. This is often centered on the right corner post but up as high as possible. I usually use a Ram ball type mount. This allows me to twist or turn the display at what at first doesn't seem to be the best viewing angle. Since most modern displays can be read at various angles, I find by purposely twisting or turning at an odd angle this reduces the glare but they are still very readable.

It might seem counterproductive to mount the displays so high as I do need to shift my eyesight to see them. I feel this is a worthwhile trade off since the display does not block my view outside the cab and eliminates the glare. I see other operators using their hand to shade the screen at times. I prefer my approach.

For my Deere tractors, I use a piece of flat steel that runs at about a 45 degree angle across the right top corner of the cab. This piece of steel is cut at an appropriate angle on each end and attached to the ceiling trim with the trim screws. This is usually strong enough to hold my displays. I have a Ram ball bolted to the center of the piece. Then a Ram arm can be used to my InCommand displays.

For my Deere 9770 combine, I was able to modify the pipe arrangement that Deere used for their 2600 display (which I don't use) and attach a Ram ball to it with a pair of clamps.

The display then extends to the left and partially blocks off part of the entertainment radio display which doesn't concern me.
