Green Guard is a yearlong support package with Fresno Equipment to get the most out of your technology or equipment purchase! There are packages associated with 4 products:  JDLink, GPS (AutoTrac), Field Connect, and Equipment Inspections.

These packages are for the support that Fresno Equipment provides in conjunction with your purchase. For example, when you purchase a Field Connect soil moisture monitoring system, our Green Guard Field Connect package provides you with monthly soil moisture monitoring, and round-the-clock service alert monitoring. We will also re-install and remove your probe during off-seasons. The package costs $250. Please visit the Precision Ag page of our website for more details!

7/15/15 – Satellite Frequency Change / mandatory Software Update!


There is an upcoming mandatory software update for John Deere StarFire Receivers due to a satellite frequency change. SF1, SF2, and RTK accuracies will revert to default WAAS (+/- 13 in.) accuracy if the update isn't installed by 7/15/15!

Fresno Equipment can update receivers either at the store or in the field. (If you have a Support Package, we have already updated your receiver.)

You can also update the software yourself. StarFire 3000 Receivers update automatically by keeping the receiver on under clear view of the sky for at least an hour, then rebooting the system. Wait 5 minutes between shutdown and restart. Downloads can take up to an hour. Alternatively, you can manually change the satellite frequency on your display without updating software. Earlier model receivers than the 3000 receiver require a manual update or frequency change. Contact Fresno Equipment for instructions.

Call Brian Montgomery, (559) 360-7878, or one of our sales representatives for assistance.
