got the head calibrated and now what? I hit the float button on the corner post and then it was reading float pressure and responding VERY slow to ground conditions and adjustments with the float dial.
The pressure readout makes me think that it was reading lift cyclinder pressure and not the potentiometer on the head.

i have always had a little trouble calibrating these heads on the 9660, but once i did, they worked well, but they didn't have that pressure readout. i have no experience with the hydraflex so i am needing some help.
does it matter which preset button you use on the hydro lever?
i wanna make sure it is the right button on the corner post.
thanks for any ideas.

Turn OFF the header float icon on the cornerpost when using a draper head. This is the icon with a header and a wavy line underneath it. Then you should be able to use button 2 or 3 on the hydro handle.

When the header float option is on - it will be reading the feeder pressure like you described.

if it is still to jumpy - press the button on the armrest that has the rabbit & turtle & header & arrows on it two times... this will bring up the header height sensitivity screen. turn the dial for the command center.

Anyone want to tell me how to get my FD70 to work better on my 9650 Walker. I have calibrated the head but it acts just like greenseeder describes.....very slow to respond. On flat ground it works ok, but in rolling ground it won't keep up. Any help would be great.
