    Norac is not so good in tall crops, it has a tendacy to drop while turning on headlands, this is because the middle sensor passes over the tramline track as you turn and senses the ground not the crop so tells the controller to lower the boom.
    pain in the a....se and I have yet to find a way of getting around the problem other than disconnecting the middle sensor,
    The norac has got headland management, you can have the boom lift to
    A set height, or raise the inclines which I feel is the safest option and best activated manually, just by a flick of the boom height control switch on the joystick.

    thanks for the info I will give Mark a ring,is that done through the agleader box norac controller settings ?.. I know you can manually tweek the boom height through the joystick switch 3cm at a time but its not enough to avoid the boom dropping on the headland and its a pain setting it back to set height while driving back down the field.
    Its the only fault I can find with it. Norac on a 30m boom worth every penny.

    Regards Mike

    You go to norac settings and then options I think and follow the steps to make headland work

    Mike, it's via the agleader box if you have a UC5, you want it so when you flick the lift on the joystick, that it then lifts the inclines, and not the the whole boom.

    looked in the agleader box today and i have no options tab under the norac tab in contoller settings. Have automatic set up, sensors and valves, auxiliary controls, and retune.
    It has the latest software version installed and I think it will require a phone call to head office to talk me through how to get in, I have seen it in settings before but can't find it now.

    Have a Muller fitted to my sands and majority of the time on 24m its a waste of time has a tendancy to dump one side in growing crops if a thin patch etc on pre em's its usefull when going late. But be honest I smashed a sensor (bus drivers dont need to say any more) few months back and I've not missed it. Would like to try Norac next time though
