Camera

I would like to add a camera or two to my grain cart one to see in the truck and the other to see behind me. I have a Trimble fm 1000 monitor, but I am wondering if it would be better to run the camera separately with its own display? Which brand should I go with ag cam or cab camera? Or are these the same?

Thanks for the help

If it's like the JD system I would put the cameras tied into the computer that you already have in there I hate when you get lots of clutter in the cab

I've seen some people put the screen in the back left corner of the cab so you can watch the cart and the screen without turning and twisting all the time. Is this common practice?

What kind of cart do you have that allows you to dump on right? Bourgault?

I am gonna mess up terminology but this is what I have used a lot: 3.6mm White Light Regular Camera

I think you would call that a cab cam? Anyways the ag-cam is actually the more expensive brand if I again have the terminology correct. I had those on a Bourgault tank and they were junk with poor wiring. The type I posted in the link have been basically trouble free for me.

One of the rare cases where you don't get what you pay for.
