John Deere has bumped up the technology level on its 2730 Combination Ripper by allowing operators to make tillage adjustments on the fly, right from the brand’s GreenStar 3 2630 in-cab display.
Want to adjust packing pressure on the rolling baskets or work a little shallower on hilltops? Then just make the adjustment on the monitor and the tillage parameters change within six seconds. There’s no need to get out of the cab and make manual implement setting adjustments.
“As conditions change throughout the field, operators running the 2730 with TruSet can quickly and efficiently respond to varying soils, compacted areas, heavier residue, and moisture,” says Nathan Kramer, product marketing manager for John Deere, in a corporate press release. “Making customized adjustments that respond to these agronomic factors help customers maximize their yield potential.”
TruSet gives operators the opportunity to pre-set up to four memory settings, so adjustments for differing field conditions can be made with just the single touch of a button.
“Once the actual set point is validated and configured to the display in the cab, operators are able to make independent adjustments to the discs, rippers, or closing discs with extreme accuracy, up-to one tenth of an inch,” Adds Kramer.
The 2730 Combination Ripper is available with the TruSet feature in working widths up to 26 feet.
