I am trying to setup a unit with an offset to trace my boundary of my field. Having a heck of a time figuring out the settings. I have made it work pretty close by using the grid lines but it isn’t making much sense as to what I am getting vs what I am putting in.
Fig 1: Implement width 1 section, 16ft (192inchs)
Fig 2: Offset of 192 Inches. (to me an offset would offset the total amount, because regardless of 1/2 hitch ect. any point on the implement would move the same amount. in this case I want my left side of my implement, next to my right tire. As you see it doesn’t work.
Fig 3: Changing to offset to something that works by trial and error. In this case 140inches ( 11.6ft)
Fig 4: Setting boundary tracer. Initial expectation of matching the offset, would seem logical to be the same.
Fig 5: trying 1/2 implement width of 8ft
Fig 6: Trial and error till I am close. 6 ft seems right
Track is set to 74 as default For 6.1ft, but even if I use that in some of the math it doesnt seem to work out. If 1/2 the tractor is 3, and we add the 6, the tracer should only be 9ft out, but as you can see its actually 16 from edge or 19 from center. so a tracer spacing of 6 doesnt add up.
EDIT: As soon as I posted and looked at the numbers again, seems like the tracer offset units remained in Meter and not in Feet, so 6M = 19.65ft, which would make sense with a 6ft track, and 16 ft implement. Same logic does not appear to work on the implement offset thought, that is obviously in inches.
145inch implement offset actually makes the closest line, but not sure how to be exact with it.
192-32(1/2 Track) is 160, but that doesnt work either.
