|Is there much of a difference in accu-depth control compared to single-point control? This is on a floating hitch model. I have run accu-depth before just want to know if I can save the money and get the same results with single point.|
|In my opnion single point is a 100 times better, for one reason mainly it is simple to operate and it just plain WORKS, I know of several older guys that just can't quite get the knack of clicking the switch to make it work right, and there is always the factor of extra electronics that have no place on a FC again just my opnion, I had one, had lots of trouble after it got some age on it and switched mine over to single point also have a new one coming in March and it will also have single point.|

|The convenience of the accu-depth is definitely worth the cost especially if it is a larger unit. Pretty hard to compare single point to it.|

Last time I checked there still is only one crank to adjust the depth doesn't matter if it is a 15' or a 60' so guess I didn't realize it was that hard to get out of the cab and turn the crank a couple of times if you wanted it deeper/shallower, is that what farming has come to that all we want to do is push buttons, guess I like to get out of the cab once in awhile to take a leak if nothing else.

|The larger the FC , the more accu-depth is needed, unless you have ground that is as flat as a table top. The accu-depth will follow the contour of the ground MUCH better. We bought a used 50.5' accu-depth, and have run it for 3 or 4 seasons with NO problems. Would NEVER go back to single point.|
Maybe I never realized the full advatages of Accu-Depth but please explain to me how on a large 50'+ FC one with Accu-Depth follows the ground better than single point, cause as far as I know (and I could be wrong) but basically Accu-Depth allows you to set depth from cab, it allows to put in any given section deeper if you want to but don't remember anything about it following the ground contour better??

|Dennis what did it cost to go from accu depth to single point|
|Thanks for all the replies. We are running accu-depth on the command center on our 9R looking at buying another for this year. Think I should stay with the accu-depth|
Slicker than a Yes album.
|Single-Point Depth Control 4010 ($653.00) |
Includes depth indicator.
We had issues with it, too. Like the simplicity of the single point. No problems with depth, all sections are held by a set of tandems and the caster wheel out front.

|Have a 2410 chisel with accu depth. Hate it! If we had the money to trade I would, won't own another|
At one time Deere offered a kit to switch over to single point at a reasonable cost. Last year when we were looking at chisel plows you had to buy all the parts individually and it was shockingly high to do a 3 section. Something like $7k?
Ron, did the touchset work good on the sidedress bar? I have had trouble getting the right stops in to maintain depth on center section.
|have a 50.5 ft 2210 with accudepth. love it. so easy to fine tune the depth from the cab as you go through the field, especially if you have lower areas that are a little wet. never had a single problem with it. We have a 2410 chisel with single point and wish we would have gotten that with accudepth also. |
I dont see what there is to hate about acccudepth?
|Locks up and doesn't read right on the display regarding how deep u are. Just a pain with hired hands trying to fix over the phone|
|I was luckly enought to convert my 3 section 2200 from accu-depth to single point back in 2007 when JD still offered a "kit" however Deere no longer has this "convesion kit" avaible I beleive I paid about 3500 to change it over, now you would have to buy all the stuff through parts so it would cost a lot more, neighbors changed a 5 section over last winter, they took the cylinders to a hydraulic type store, thinking they could redo them however they ended up replacing them all, but they purchased aftermarket cylinders at a huge cost savings of JD (however they were painted red so they did have to repaint them) and they have a hyd hose machine so they made up all there own hoses and they said they redid a 5 section machine for about 3000 not including labor and obviously the Deere price didn't include labor either, also pretty shure a person could almost pay for a decent hose machine with the cost savings of buying hose in a bulk roll and some ends over getting hoses made at a dealer.|

|I main problem I had with mine, before I started having major issuses, was if you were going around a low area and just wanted to raise the FC just a little it would not stay level unless you clicked the button to go all the way up, same thing going back down if you didn't click the button not all the sections would be the same depth in the ground, I personally never had a lot of trouble running it myself but my Dad could never get the hang of "clicking" the button he likes to just hold it do go up and hold it to go down (remember he came from the days when you actually had to use a LEVER to make it do up and down and even started out pulling a rope in his younger days, and old habits are hard to change) and for that single point is a lot simpler and works everytime. Also trying to explain to him how do change the depth on the display over the phone/radio sucked (If I am looking at a screen I can do just about anything on a display but if not looking at a screen it is hard for me to tell someone how to change stuff) where with the single point it is pretty easy to get out and turn the crank if you want it deeper/shallower.|
