Hi, I am seeking to install a guidance system on a 100 horse JD tractor (newer model, open station). Uses are for applying liquids via sprayer, granulars via standard spreader; also need it for making raised beds in straight rows with plastic mulch. I don't need auto shut-off or any of the higher tech function, - only looking to auto steer in straight lines. What do guys recommend, something inexpensive, low-budget, yet reliable. Tractor is new but no hardware installed from the factory.
Thanks much for any help!
I would buy a John Deere 2600 with fs1 autosteer screen look on Agtalk classifieds for one of them then I would buy an Agra Grc Gps receiver from the company itself. Look them up on the Internet and email the sales person and they will call you back that will give you RTK then you need an Atu 300 from John Deere. I’d buy a new one then call agexpress and they’ll make you a cable to hook it all together.
You will probably need to make some bracket yourself no need to hire anybody to put together a system for you.
There are many knowledgeable folks here on this page that will help you out if you get stumped putting that system together yourself
