Sloan Support Call Center Now Open With Extended Hours

The Sloan Support Call Center is Open for Plant '18

by Weston Adcock, Assumption, IL 

Starting today, April 20th, Sloan Implement will open its call center for the 2018 spring planting season. If you do business with Sloan Implement, AMS call support is free during business hours.  Business hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the week and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.  We have 3 experienced Product Support Specialists staffing the call center each day.  This is the best outlet for the fastest response to your AMS/Precision Farming questions.  Last spring we took 3,500 calls, with over 200 per day and still averaged a wait time of fewer than 30 seconds. If by chance all 3 lines are busy and you do not want to wait on hold, you can leave a call back number that saves your place in line and generates an automatic return call. You can also connect with the call center by sending an email or requesting a call back through our Sloan Implement Smartphone App.  You can download the Sloan App for iPhone and Android by clicking here.

If you need assistance after business hours, Sloans will continue to offer after-hours support to keep your operation going into the night and on weekends. From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. during the week, 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays we will be providing voicemail support. If you leave a detailed message of your issue with your name and number, you will get a timely response from a member of our AMS team.  For this added service we will charge $50 for the call.  The phone numbers remain the same and we now have a call center solely for our Ag Retail customers.

Video: Setting Up TruSet™ on a John Deere 2230 Field Cultivator

How to set up TruSet Tillage on your Display

by Jake Pippin, Assumption, IL 

In this video, tillage specialist Jake Pippin walks you through how to set up TruSet for a John Deere 2230 field cultivator on a John Deere gen 4  display.

 

WHAT IS TruSet™ and why you need it:

  • TruSet™ Tillage technology helps you increase your productivity in short tillage windows by making on-the-go depth and down-pressure adjustments from the cab in only six seconds.
  • Cover more acres in a day because you spend more time tilling and less time manually adjusting your implement for changing conditions from one field to the next.
  • Do a better quality tillage job because it’s easy to fine-tune the implement with 1/10th of an inch adjustments, all from the cab with the touch of a button.
  • Execute prescriptions and document the tillage operation.
  • Run variable-depth tillage prescriptions to incorporate residue at different levels across the field or change the depth of tillage for different conditions such as lighter soils or areas of known compaction.
  • Document your tillage passes to see if different tillage strategies affected crop emergence or yield.

TruSet is available on all model years of the following tillage implements:

TruSet™ Tillage compatibility requirements

TruSet Tillage requires a GreenStar-ready tractor with a supported display and receiver. The TruSet Tillage system must have a connection to the tractor ISO connection. Additional TruSet Tillage information:

TruSet can be run on John Deere and competitive tractors. For older John Deere and competitive tractors, a compatibility kit is needed in addition to the TruSet Tillage system. The compatibility kit includes an add-on selective control valve (SCV) and installation components.

These John Deere models are TruSet ready and will require the compatibility kit.
