    New Holland Intellisteer

    right no responses in precision farming so...


    got a NH6080 with sidewinder 2/touchscreen etc.. meant to be intellisteer ready..

    anyone know what it would cost to fit and if the system is any good? only interested in the basic version for cereal sowing, fert etc..

    I'm just wondering why your dealer can't tell you? If they can't give you the price they can't hope to sell its benefits to you.

    well prices can sometimes vary between dealers and was hoping for an honest answer from someone who has used NH intellisteer to see if it is any good when compared to other systems..

    not a smart comment from you.

    Intellisteer ready means it has the wiring loom and steering valve in place. Still needs a control box (Trimble, or NH Trimble branded box), and a NavII controller to run it all. On top of that you'll need to decide on signal, as this will affect the price also.

    Ballpark will be the same as Trimble stuff. NH dealer might be able to better the prices but all around the same unless you can get your hands on NH's demo stuff.

    You'll need a Trimble control system (or NH branded) so I'd guess around 2000+ for a 750 Egnos. NavII I don't know about but guess maybe 5000.

    You could not bother with the intellisteer bit and NavII controller and go with Ez-steer and that will reduce the possible 5000 NavII to around the 2500 - 3000 mark. Again I'm really not sure on the NavII control box price really.

    Intellisteer ready saves you some wiring (can be quite pricey) but mainly the steering valve cost. These aren't cheap but getting everything to use them is quite expensive.

    NH dealer and a Trimble dealer will give you all the prices you want and to be honest I'd guess most auto steer brands will do the same, as most will plug into the system one way, or another, so price them all basically.

    At the end of the day they all work the same. Some have better features than others but it is ever changing really, as are the prices.

    Ez-steer types you are looking at around the 3500 - 5500 mark. Intellisteer ready then you are around the 7000 - 8000 mark. Add in a better signal and you are getting to around 10000+ All ballpark guesses.

    Unless he asks his dealers for a proper price. But apparently we should know better. :loll:

    A better way of doing it would be to ask his dealer and then tell us what it will cost. After all, they are selling it and setting it up, and we are not.

    Precise Solutions are a company that often advertise on this forum. They could probably help as well.

    thanks just the sort of answer i was looking for. would rather have a rough idea of what i am looking at costwise before i go to the dealer and get them excited about selling me something.. don't have time for the salesman popping in here every 2 days if it is a non starter..

    round here everyone seems to use either the JD system or the AGCO one, so no one i have asked seems to know anything about the NH system.. the few NH or case tractors that run autosteer round here seem to have the JD system fitted so wondered if that was because the NH system was a bit crap..

    no point asking the NH dealer how their system stacks up to others because they will just say it is the best like all salesmen do!


    oh and by the way cowabunga it is stupid to ask what the rough idea for a price for machine is or if said machine is any good then that means that the majority of threads in the machinery section are pointless too! here i asked for a rough idea of price and an honest opinion on the system and i have pretty much got what i wanted.. just because you know ef all about autosteer systems doesn't mean that everyone else knows ef all as well.. :lolk:

    I do actually know a bit about auto steer but not the precise cost. If the cost within a few grand was what you wanted, fair enough.
    You will have ongoing annual costs on top of installation costs.

    Re: New Holland Intellisteer

    New Holland's steering systems are made by Trimble and rebadged, probably best to go direct to a Trimble agent, as they will support it then, Trimble agents will not support CNH branded Trimble gear, and a lot of CNH dealers do not have GPS specialists that can sort out the problems Trimble can.

    New Holland and Trimble are global partners thus have better access to parts, support and technical services that alot of the Trimble resellers dont have.

    If you are running a T6 with Sidewinder Intellisteer ready you have a couple of options. If you wish to transfer the kit at a later date go for a Trimble branded Nav controller and reciever as this will "talk" to JD, Fendt Autoguidance ready tractors (however you will need a new screen (FM750 - FM1000)), if you only ever intend to use it on your NH then buy a NH Nav controller and reciever. All of which are available from you local New Holland dealer.

    Also discuss you reciever options as the 262 is being phased out and replaced with a 372 which is GLONASS unlocked and the ability to have a rover radio internally located.
