Quadtrac vs. RFS Farmsight

One of our customers wanted John Deere AutoTrac fitting to his Case Quadtrac as well as collecting all the work data from the tractor and sending it wirelessly into his MyJohnDeere Operations Centre account. Jack and Andy from our Farmsight team were more than happy to help.

We fitted a 4640 display in the cab as well as a Starfire SF6000 receiver onto the tractor before fitting an AutoTrac bridge kit to enable the set-up to use the Quadtrac’s own steering valve. The addition of a RTK signal completed the set-up for the highest accuracy possible. To make things even better, we currently have John Deere’s “Connect the Fleet” promotion going on which helped the customer make substantial savings on their investment. Set-up tested and everything is working perfectly. If there is a way to do it, our Farmsight team will find a way!

 

If you have a challenge for the team let us your local area sales manager or local branch now and somebody from Farmsight will get in touch.
