This past week in Southwestern Wisconsin has been filled with rain almost on a daily occasion. Some spots have received almost 10” in a week, with very little of it being severe storms. Once the weather straightens out a lot of our dairy customers will be making second crop hay. Second cutting is looking very good with plenty of length and very little insect pressure to inhibit it.
One of the issues that we ran into this past week was on the new 4600 displays in a new 8R tractor. The customer was going to use the tractor and three point mounted sprayer for touching up around grass waterways, and wanted to set up home pages on his new display. The trouble he ran into was that he couldn’t find where his John Deere Rate Controller was listed.
In the new display currently they are listed under the ISOBUS VT tab.
Here you can select from your receiver, rate controller, planter, or whatever else you have on the system. This part is very similar to the “main menu” screen that shows all of the active ISOBUS implements that the tractor has running
Once you select in this case Planter it will show up in ¾ screen on the display. At this moment it is unable to have any of the ISO tasks placed on an actual home page.
