Hey Don did you get my response to your query? I don't know my way around this site that good and not sue if it was sent. Anyhow I am headed East this morning and thought if you were around I would stop by for coffee. I am leaving Olds shortly.
Yes I know Chris, have had him out on a few occasions and back in 2008 he supplied and installed the entire auto steer system on the 595 back when Claas still thought the sun rises and sets on Laser Pilot. Actually, they still do.
Chris is very knowledgeable and personal, read, he has a lot of patients with a dummy like me.
The RTK is Deere, a shared tower on the second hill of Three Hills, only 1200 m from my yard.
Hi Don, sorry to hear you are having such a trying time with your Trimble . I find I just can't catch on and figure things out like some of the young guys can. Pretty **** frustrating for me too. I have one younger friend that is very sharp on that stuff and I often call him and he often steers me right. No pun intended! He has tried all the satellite only levels of GPS and wound up with a couple of partners on an RTK tower. That is by far the best system he has found. I wondered why if you have RTK in your seeding tractor, you don't use that system. Or maybe if you are working for other guys you are too far away from a tower? Just a suggestion for Trimble help, do you know about Accufarm at Strathmore? Chris Nelson there has set up all my units and I find him and his employees to be very helpful, even though they are 160 miles away.
