Re: JD 9770 autosteer buttons
That is fine but, it would be really nice to hit a dedicated "pinky button" for autosteer, earlier in the turn than lowering the head.
That way the combine gets on line nice and early and the head can be lowered just in time. Acres will be calculated much more accurately, and less wear to the head skidding sideways.
It is also quite dangerous the way it is set up now. Quite often we have to drive around natural gas well heads and such. As you are manually driving around the obstruction,and change height with the buttons,,, wham,,, the combine steers quickly and veers for the well head.
Much better to have a seperate button for autosteer. (Exactly like the sprayers please). Have suggested this to everyone at Deere that I talk to, for 5 years now.
