farmboy2548m on the left, Gabel on the right...(at least that's my pass hat speculation.)

Note that it's not a deal of wheel VERSUS side stick.

We also see a mixture of automation and manual operation, and electrical switches replacing direct hydraulic controls.

Lots of horsepower and an impressive wing span.

I hope the kid doesn't push the controls too hard... Or that the ParentM recognizes in time the AP disconnection :| .

To the best of my knowledge, John Deere 6000 series tractors are still 6000.

My 6400 and 6410 did not have auto steer. Good hand to eye coordination and perspective for lateral alignment were important, but I had many years and hours.

Yes, many years and hours of disregard for procedure. I wonder how many total farming disasters where avoided by sheer luck.
