FarmSight Certificate of Excellence

We are one of the first John Deere dealerships to be awarded the 3.0 FarmSight Certificate of Excellence for providing customer support packages for John Deere GreenStar equipment and an RTK correction service from BB RTK.
Congratulations to our FarmSight team!

Introducing the new John Deere StarFire 6000 Receiver

The StarFire 6000 is John Deere's new generation receiver, uniting leading edge receiver technology and yet again defining a new standard of ultimate accuracy and signal stability.

The StarFire 6000 works seamlessly with all accuracy levels and John Deere guidance systems. Second to none the StarFire 6000 inherited the field proven Terrain Compensation Module (TCM) to automatically compensate roll, pitch and yaw of the vehicle, while GLONASS compatibility remains in base. SF1 accuracy has further improved, being far superior to EGNOS and continues to be free of charge.

Introducing “Triple StarFire Accuracy”, the new SF3 correction signal with “In-Season-Repeatability” and up to four times quicker pull-in time, as well as further enhanced RTK solutions such as 14-days of “RTK Extend”, the StarFire 6000 receiver already today is ready to compete with the future.

Last but not least, to provide you peace of mind, the StarFire 6000 is now also available with a locking device.

For further information, please contact Carl Pitelen, Peter Roffe, Tom Fisher or Bradley Lawrence or visit John Deere UK.
