MacDon M155 Integrated Autosteer running on Greenstar
Hoping that I can get some input on my issue to finally put this to bed.
Purchased a '15 M155. Has the hydraulics portion for Integrated Auto steer (MacDon kit #B5589). Has resume switch on the handle.
Am I able to add Deeres controller and associated wiring/brackets to this unit, along with a 3000 receiver / 2630 display and have integrated autosteer?
I have been told by numerous sales guys / GPS techs that the entire MacDon autosteer hydraulic block needs to be replaced in order for it to "talk" to the Deere system properly. Say it is set up for a Trimble system currently. But when I compare the Sun hydraulic block from a W150 Deere on the lot to the block on our unit, the part number and revision are identical, part # A706 11A F04 Revision B. (see image). The number underneath the part number tells when and where it was built / assembled and doesn't change the block.
So..... Is the hydraulics the same then and don't need replaced? Or is there something I'm missing?
Anyone with MacDon on Deere knowledge on this would be greatly appreciated.
