    Bought three of these receivers the other day at auction. Havent picked up yet but wondering if anyone has experience with these? They are 3 Spectra Precision DR21 Gradio Displays with SN 2319, 2554 and 2557 and 3 Spectra Precision RT2S1 Gradio Receivers SN 2319, 2554 and 2557

    They look more complex to set up, I work with the single recievers with 270 degree pick up, but I do like the larger display units.

    I would prefer having a better receiver as far as having the 270 degree pick up you mention. I have some ideal on how to get around this but for what I bought these for I should be able to do everything I need and then some. The displays appear to be large enough, I liked the fact there are no wires.

    What do you mean they look more complex? I hope to pick these up on Wensday...

    Looks like you need to set up the primary receiver in a good location on the machine, then find another good spot for the visual receiver.
    But they might work in tandem on a blade dozer where you pretty much need to have a visual one on each corner.

    Feels like x-mas...

    Well they are better then I thought and in like new shape. The receivers pick up both ways, the display is huge I wasnt expecting them to be that large.

    Needless to say very happy with my buy, cant wait to get one mounted and tested..:weightlifter:
