Auto steer and boomspray auto shutoff systems.

Topcon X25 $13,300. Requires use of existing electric steering wheel from X20 system. Upgrade to RTK if desired, extra $5,800.

Trimble 750 $15,500. Upgrade to RTK if desired, extra $10,600.

We've had two X20 Topcon systems, the new unit is to replace one of them, but don't have any existing prejudices either way.

Leaning towards the X25 Topcon.

Thoughts?

I run Topcon and am happier with it than I was with Trimble. If you are happy with the X20, the X25 is a whole new generation but improved from the X20. You can add a wheel angle sensor to the AES-25 and then it will perform as good as any hydraulic system in my opinion. The Topcon is also compatible with signal from a Trimble RTK base station.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm a bit surprised there's no opinions from anyone else out there?

Anyone else think 20 to 25K for auto steer is completely insane?

I have had a x25 in my combine for 4 years. I find it excellent. Easy to use with great accuracy using rtk with aes 25 and a wheel angle sensor.

Yes.

Just like all the other costs in agriculture are completely insane.

Yes, just waiting on Ali express to ship my new windows tabs so I can set up ag open in everything rather then having to keep swapping one system between everything.

Thanks for the reply.

Anyone used the X25 to do auto steer and auto shutoff?

Yes I use it on a Hardi Navigator and it works a treat. Took a bit to check the timing of the shut off but once it was sorted, it works well and trouble free. I am also running it on CORS.
Will be running a spreader through it as well using the shutoff as well.

These were this prices I was quoted at the field days for an x35. I'm pleased you started this thread because I am wanting to change into topcon or Trimble.
