Yes, almost as addicting as putting good LED lights on tractor or combine. Once you’ve got one piece with it, you rapidly do them all.
I still find the best, cheapest place to start is a used ez guide 500 already unlocked to RTK and and ez steer. And use an ez boom for a pull type sprayer. Maybe a Trimble 750 or FMX these days, but they are a bit more complicated in cabling and unlocks to put together a used system.
When outgrow the old Trimble stuff in the planting/sprayer tractor, still works great for use in tillage tractors.
Looks like I’ll slowly be switching to ag leader. Have an incommand 1200 in the combine now and it’s awesome. Unlocked to RTK and hydraulic autosteering. But it wasn’t cheap. Probably spent more on it than the 3 systems I have in the tractors combined which are all RTK ez guide 500s with ez steers, with a ez boom in the sprayer tractor.
