TruSet, an industry-exclusive technology, enables operators to independently adjust depth or pressure settings on their 2730 Combination Ripper from the cab.

Making it easier for customers to perform tillage adjustments with the push of a button, John Deere introduces TruSet. This industry-exclusive technology enables users to independently adjust depth or pressure settings for each operation on their 2730 Combination Ripper from the cab, on-the-go, for maximum agronomic results.

“As conditions change throughout the field, operators running the 2730 with TruSet can quickly and efficiently respond to varying soils, compacted areas, heavier residue, and moisture,” says Nathan Kramer, product marketing manager for John Deere. “Making customized adjustments that respond to these agronomic factors help customers maximize their yield potential.”

At the touch of a button, TruSet users can quickly respond to changing soil conditions when operating their 2730 Combination Ripper.

With TruSet, operators can adjust depth settings for their disks, rippers, and closing disks on the 2730 Ripper along with pressure settings for the active hydraulic rolling baskets. These adjustments are made in cab from the GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display that also provides users with real-time data for their actual tillage settings.

“In just six seconds, TruSet operators can adjust depth and pressure settings from the cab while continuing to cover acres,” says Kramer. “That’s up to 200 times faster than conventional, manual adjustments with single-point depth control and cylinder stops”

Operators no longer have to sacrifice machine performance by deciding to forgo manual adjustments throughout the field. At the touch of a button, TruSet users can quickly respond to changing conditions such as running deeper over end rows or working shallower on hilltops and lighter soils.

TruSet’s four memory set points allow operators to save settings for their most common field conditions. Operators can also make adjustments on the display to achieve their desired field finish.

According to Kramer, TruSet provides operators with a high level of precision. “With a working tillage width of up to 26 feet on the 2730, consistent tillage performance can be easily obtained from front to back across all four functional areas of this machine.” He adds, “Once the actual set point is validated and configured to the display in the cab, operators are able to make independent adjustments to the disks, rippers, or closing disks with extreme accuracy, up to one-tenth of an inch.”
