New GreenStar 1800 display from John Deere

The latest member of the John Deere display family is the all-new AMS GreenStar 1800. It has been designed as the optimum solution for customers using guidance applications on John Deere or non-Deere equipment, especially when teamed with the AutoTrac Universal 200 steering kit.

Its comprehensive guidance options include Parallel Tracking, AutoTrac and AutoTrac Universal. It will also support Sprayer Pro automatic boom section control for John Deere sprayers and ISOBUS implement control.

Target customers would therefore include mixed farms (for spraying, slurry spreading and tillage operations) and medium to large arable farms (for tillage, drilling and harvesting applications). In addition, the GreenStar 1800 is suitable for farms growing speciality crops and for situations requiring accurate repeatability, for example field scale vegetables and controlled traffic farming (CTF).

The GreenStar 1800 has been tested and certified as ISOBUS compatible, and can operate with all three John Deere accuracy levels (SF1, SF2 and RTK), using the TÜV-certified StarFire iTC DGPS position receiver. The display features a modern 16:9 colour screen, push button controls and USB ports. It can also be used on all vehicles with a 12V power supply.

With this new unit, John Deere offers a range of four in-cab displays:

  • the GreenStar Lightbar is the ideal entry level guidance system for smaller livestock and arable farms;
  • the established Original GreenStar Display focuses on providing an affordable guidance and documentation package for mixed and medium sized arable farms;
  • the GreenStar 1800 now offers mixed and larger arable farms the benefit of an optimum guidance and ISOBUS control solution, especially for multi-brand fleets;
  • the top of the range GreenStar 2600 continues to be the premium solution for customers looking for a complete technology package including a full range of guidance options, state of the art documentation, ISOBUS compliance and performance monitoring, all controlled via a large, easy to use, colour touch screen.
