We have two wireless cameras on our combine ,,,one on the grain tank and one on top of the cab pointed toward the unload auger,,, the display screen is in the buggy tractor ,,,so when the driver of the buggy tractor pulls up beside combine he sees what the combine driver would see ,,,from that view ,,,when we are topping off the buggy the tractor driver can see where the grain needs to go in the buggy and the combine driver doesn't have to tell the driver to speed up or slow down,,you can have up to 4 combines ,there are 4 channels of wireless cameras ,,,just put the number of the camera on the side of the combine and the buggy driver just puts that number in his display screen..

We have the same thing on our combine so that the truck driver can seeinto the back of the truck eithout having to look through the back window all the time. We also have one on the back of the truck for backing up to the auger. We mounted the third camera on the back of the combine so we can see the spread pattern and see when backing up.

we are going to take the cams off of the combine and cart when harvest is over and mount the cam on the load out auger and put the displays in the truck cabs so we don't have to get in and out all the time when loading

What brand name camera systems are you buying? I have thought about this as well but the potential install and maintenance time has kept me away from it. I use cameras mounted on the cart itself.

Doesn't the image in the monitor give a bunch of staticwit the picture?? I just got mine and tried it from about 15 M away and the picture was terible!! Don't know how this could ever work well. This is the cab cam that I tried and it was awful. I think I'll have to trade it for the wired ones and run all the stupid wiring. Unless you can think of something that I may be doing wrong??
