Precision Training on Raven Products

Based on feedback from our customers, we are pleased to offer a Training Series on Raven products.

This will be a combination of 6, 1 hour long sessions using the Zoom platform.

All sessions will be recorded, so registered users will be able to go back and view later on if they wish.

If you would like to participate, call or email us to register, info@haggertycreek.com.

All sessions start at 1:30pm, EST.

Session 1:  A free session discussing Raven RS1 steering.

February 16th 2021

We wanted to do a group session, on the features and benefits of the Raven RS1 steering system.  The existing Raven Smartrax systems have done their service for many years, and the time is right to upgrade those to the newest equipment.  We will go over the key benefits, and spend some time on the upgrade path for sprayers, floaters and tractors making the upgrade.  A benefit of updating a sprayer or high clearance spreader will be the ability to in corporate the highly anticipated Raven Vision Steering system.  This system allows the machine to follow existing corn or other crop rows and tram lines hands free, ignoring the A-B line.  It works up to 100% canopy without the need for mechanical feelers.  And, it now will automatically steer the machine on the headlands for easier row finding in crop.

Session 2:  A free session discussing the Raven Rate Control Module, known as the RCM

February 23rd 2021

We wanted to share some of our key findings with the RCM, the ISOBUS rate controller from Raven, that is replacing both the older Raven ISO ECU and in most cases, the proprietary Raven CANBUS system.  The Raven RCM is easy to use, and has a wide range of capability, from basic monitor only, to multi product, multi boom applications

We will use a Raven CR7 display to show you how to configure an RCM for a corn planter, an aircart, a liquid applicator and a granular spreader.  We will also touch on how to integrate internal scales on your cart, as well as row and spreader clutches and valves for section control.

Lastly, we will do a brief summary of cabling options, for older systems converting from Raven SCS consoles, for new systems using the full range of options, to John Deere systems running an JDRC2000 controller.

Session 3:  A free session giving an overview of Raven Autonomy

March 2nd 2021

Haggerty is excited to be the Ontario Autonomy dealer, and we want to share with you the release of the Raven Autocart system.  Autocart will allow farmers to make their grain buggies and produce carts fully autonomous, freeing up valuable farm labour for other tasks.

We will touch on the ordering process, what vehicles are eligible, and our planned roll out for 2021.

In this session we will also give an update on what DOT has been up to, spreading fertilizer and other things. Since we can’t go to the London Farm Show, this is our next best alternative.

Session 4:  Paid Session on the Raven Viper 4+ GRANULAR APPLICATIONS  ($10 fee Paypal)

March 8th 2021

As the flagship Raven field computer, the Viper 4+ has rapidly taken over most of the custom applicator rigs in the Province.  We thought it important to provide some training on how to make full use of the field computer capability.  This will include proper machine shed setup, training on how to setup product profiles for accurate tracking of materials applied, and the use of the Grower Farm Field functionality for recording applications.  These will be done using strictly Granular Applicator examples, such as Airflows and Dry bulk spreaders, both pull type and self propelled.

We will also review the use of the Street Map function, and how it relates to Boundary Maps and guidance lines.

Job Sync, an exciting new feature, will also be discussed along with a review of Slingshot functionality, including file transfer, Rx maps, and troubleshooting.

Session 5:  Paid Session on the Raven Viper 4+ SPRAYER / LIQUID APPLICATIONS ($10 fee Paypal)

March 9th 2021

As the flagship Raven field computer, the Viper 4+ has rapidly taken over most of the custom applicator rigs in the Province.  We thought it important to provide some training on how to make full use of the field computer capability.  This will include proper machine shed setup, training on how to setup product profiles for accurate tracking of materials applied, and the use of the Grower Farm Field functionality for recording applications.  These will be done using strictly Liquid Applicator examples, such as Sprayers and pull type applicators.

We will also review the use of the Street Map function, and how it relates to Boundary Maps and guidance lines, and spray/no spray zones.

Job Sync, an exciting new feature, will also be discussed along with a review of Slingshot functionality, including file transfer, Rx maps, and troubleshooting.

Session 6:  Maintenance and Troubleshooting, including Legacy Products ($10 fee Paypal)

March 16th 2021

We can’t forget about the basics of rate control!  Speed, Flow, and Boom.  In this session we will touch on the Raven SCS consoles such as a 440 and 450.  We will show you how to quickly diagnose common issues with any machine, including speed problems, flowmeter (or granular encoder), and valves / clutches.

We will also demonstrate the proper cleaning of Sidekick Pro injection systems, with a step by step teardown.

Lastly, we will cover the maintenance and inspection of Hawkeye PWM nozzles.
