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

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 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.
