Take Control of Your Fields With Implement Command from Great Plains
Are you looking for new ways to maximize efficiency and make data-driven decisions about your fields? Implement Command, a new technology from Great Plains, can help you achieve those goals.
The technology, which is available on new 18-foot and 35-foot Turbo-Maxes, gives farmers the ability to set, adjust, and monitor the vertical tillage tool’s performance right from the tractor cab. By making decisions on the go, in real time, Implement Command helps users improve yields and soil health.
“The biggest benefit to producers with this technology is a newfound convenience and ease of use. The Implement Command system gives the control to the producer inside of the tractor cab – no longer do they have to crawl in and out,” says Rye DeGarmo, vice president of Great Plains Engineering.
The Push of a Button
With the simple push of a button, a number of Turbo-Max functions can be controlled through Implement Command.
Tillage depth. Three programmable presets to make adjustments quickly and on-the-go, lets farmers control tillage depth.
Weight transfer. By dialing in the appropriate amount of down pressure applied to the wings, weight transfer can be adjusted on the monitor.
Screen time. With a quick glance at the monitor, farmers are able to keep an eye on several settings, including the gang angle from 0° to 6°, the hydraulic reel’s down pressure, and fore-and-aft leveling. In addition, each of these settings can be changed using hydraulic levers in the cab.
“Producers no longer have to worry about accidentally hitting a lever and making unintended changes to the field. With the Implement Command system, these changes will be immediately visible on the screen,” DeGarmo says.
Since Implement Command, which is ISO-compatible, works on the tractor’s virtual terminal (VT), no added monitors are needed. If a tractor is equipped with multiple displays, dual VT compatibility lets farmers transfer control to the next VT available on the bus.
