I have customers with small enough acres that can't justify a traditional RTK system. These discount systems might let them have RTK autosteer in their budget. I spoke to a guy who would put one of the systems on a small 100 hp tractor that he uses for hay and some row cultivation, but he is scared that the heading might not match up with his Trimble lines. I wonder if anyone using one of these cheap systems has verified if the heading is true to a Trimble heading (or Deere)?
I've seen used Trimble RTK base stations for sale for a fraction of original cost. But they were likely in rough shape or had other problems considering they were 10 years old, from construction sites or whatever. That could be an option if someone wanted cheap, but that could also just end up being more of a pain than it's worth.
