Trimble 500 in 9600

My combine will drive straight with ez steer but when I turn around at one end of the field it’s off line by about 2 feet. Turn at other end and it’s good again. It’s like it’s offset going one way. The antenna is in the center of the cab. Any suggestions on how to fix this? I must need an offset.

Is your header offset? You have to set the offset to half of what it is. As in a 24" offset right on the header should be input as 12" offset right in the monitor.

I find it easier to move the antenna over one way or the other to get it dialed in

I'm not sure the cabs are 100% right in the middle of the machine.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Lol, I had the same problem. The middle of the cab is not in the middle of the header. Move the antennae or program in an offset.

Yes the middle of the header is not where the cab is on a lot of combines. Easier to type in the offset because your pick up header, if using one, and straight cut header will be different. My gleaner has the straight cut header shifted more to the right to allow a shorter unload auger. Funny thing on the gleaner is that the feeder house doesn't line up directly under the cab either. A few inchs off center

I think the header is centered, it’s the cab that isn’t(someone has probably measured it, I haven’t) If your antennae is in the center of the cab without any offset programmed in you’ll be overlapping and missing because of the cab offset. It’s deceiving.

If I get around to moving mine from the swather to the combine today I’ll grab the offset settings for the combine, to help get you on the right track.

you are picking up one sat signal going east and when you turn around you might be picking up a different one. go into set up and choose only the one sat 358 or 356 I think. been a while cant remember exactly, I phoned the guy at moody's equipment in Saskatoon and he helped me out.

Nothing is "centered" on the 9000 combines. If you look closely the thresher body & feeder is not centered between the tires. The cab is not centered either. It's close, but not that close. Way better than the 7720 cab, though!
