How to Set Up your Combine
Harvest Setup with the EquipmentPlus™ App
Automatic Calibration using ActiveYield™
ActiveYield™ helps you save time and make better decisions from your data by automatically calibrating your mass flow sensor on-the-go in compatible crops. Less time calibrating means more time spent harvesting in the field.
Compatible crops: Wheat, barley, canola, corn, soybeans, and rice.
Now that your machine is set up with a good starting point, use the Gen 4 display and the Operations Center mobile app to optimise the performance of your machine in-crop. Good optimisation leads to precise and impactful automation.
Optimise Combine Performance
Before you can automate the adjustment of your combine settings, it’s important that you optimise the machine to the desired productivity, loss levels and grain sample quality.
The Optimise Performance app in the Gen 4 display will help you through this process by providing recommended adjustments based on the symptoms you observe whether that be unthreshed grain, cracked grain, or losses among others.
Remotely View & Adjust Settings
Now that you have set up and optimised your combine, you’re ready to establish a performance target that will inform the automatic adjustment of key combine settings using Combine Advisor.
All you need to do is:
- Get your combine optimised
- Select Combine Advisor from the run screen
- Turn on Auto Maintain
- Set a new Performance Target if needed
The machine is now automatically maintaining the performance target you’ve set, and no matter the moisture or crop conditions, it will continue to make adjustments as you harvest throughout the day.
Compatible crops: Wheat, barley, canola, corn, soybeans and rice.
Automate unloading on the go with Machine Sync
The Machine Sync application used during harvest creates a local network between your tractors and combines that automates the unloading on-the-go process, helping to keep productivity to a maximum, no matter the experience of your team.
Machine Sync also enables faster decision-making during harvest with logistics information including:
- Combine and grain cart locations and direction of travel
- Combine grain tank fill levels
- Unloading auger status
