Did you know that how you set up your John Deere hydraulics could make a big difference in efficiency? One of the best and most overlooked settings in Custom Mode is the ECO ON and ECO OFF engine control. The ECO ON and ECO OFF setting helps satisfy hydraulic demands, maintain the lowest possible engine speed, improve implement performance and reduce fluid consumption.

For this reason, we’ve put together a video gallery to explain how John Deere hydraulics can help you become more efficient, and how the ECO ON and ECO OFF setting supports this. Enjoy!

Determine Minimum Engine Speed for High Hydraulic Flow Implements

This video will explain how to use available resources to calculate and adjust SCV flow rates to supply only the required flow to each function. It will also show you how to use the ECO ON and ECO OFF engine speeds in Custom Mode to satisfy all hydraulic demands while maintaining the lowest possible engine speed.

Adjusting Minimum Engine Speed to Improve Implement Performance

Have you experienced problems caused by low hydraulic flow on implements that require high hydraulic flow, such as planters? In this video, we will fine tune the ECO OFF engine speed to satisfy all hydraulic demands during headland turns and ECO ON engine speed to satisfy all hydraulic demands while going across the field to obtain optimum implement performance.

Adjusting Minimum Engine Speed to Reduce Fluid Consumption

Here’s the scenario – you have a planter or other high hydraulic flow implements running perfect in the field, but you think your fluid consumption is a little high. After watching this video you will be ready to fine tune your ECO ON and ECO OFF engines speeds to reduce total fluid consumption while going across the field and during headland turns.

We hope you found this video gallery helpful and learned some ways that John Deere hydraulics can be adjusted to improve efficiency on the field. If you enjoyed this post or want to read others, feel free to connect with us on FacebookTwitter or Google+!
