John Deere 2730 Ripper TruSet™ provides precise depth and pressure control from the cab on the go 

In just six seconds, John Deere 2730 Ripper operators can manage their changing field conditions by making on-the-go adjustments for the entire implement from the tractor cab. TruSet enables users to adjust depths for the disks, rippers, and closing disks, and adjust the pressure on the active hydraulic rolling baskets – all while covering acres.

2. TruSet accuracy  
3. TruSet adjustment process saves time in the field  
4. Adjust from the cab on the go    
5. TruSet helps lower operating costs  

 

As conditions change throughout the field, operators running the John Deere 2730 Ripper with TruSet can quickly and efficiently respond to varying soils, compacted areas, heavier residue, and moisture. Making customized adjustments that respond to these agronomic factors help customers maximize their yield potential.
 
Adjusting the John Deere 2730 Ripper  with TruSet can be done up to 200 times faster than the manual adjustment process using single-point depth control and cylinder stops. With short windows to perform tillage work, that critical time savings could be the difference in getting fields worked or not.
 
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 shallower on hilltops and lighter soils. TruSet users can optimize their John Deere 2730 Ripper depth adjustments to maximize tractor performance for more efficient fuel use, and lower overall operating costs.
 
TruSet also add precision to tillage operations. The system offers depth accuracy of 2.5 mm (0.1 in.) and more than doubles the number of depth setting increments on the John Deere 2730 Ripper. This finite level of control enables John Deere 2730 Ripper operators to create the ideal soil structure, and evenly size and distribute residue for maximum yield potential.

Functionality

Single-point depth control is standard on all John Deere 2730 Ripper. Single-point depth control provides the option for users to manually set implement depth, even with TruSet.

 

This advanced tillage technology, available exclusively from John Deere, provides operators with real-time knowledge of the settings for each functional area on the implement. With a working tillage width of up to 7.9 m (26 ft) on the John Deere 2730 Ripper, consistent tillage performance can be easily obtained from front to back across all four functional areas of this machine.
 
Both the set points entered by the user and the actual running depth or pressure for each area on the implement can be easily referenced for assurance of desired tillage outcomes. Once 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 accuracy within one tenth of an inch. And, four memory set points enable operators to save different combinations of settings for their most common field conditions.
 
The independent adjustability of each area on the John Deere 2730 Ripper helps ensure TruSet users are efficiently managing residue and creating the ideal soil
