Ag Leader's T2 technology greatly improves accuracy and performance on slopes, rough terrain and sudden heading changes. Steering performance is improved with 70 percent less wheel movement. The T2 technology is an option for new and existing EZ-Steer and EZ-Guide Plus users.
The EZ-Steer system provides assisted steering for agricultural vehicles with 6.0 to 12 inch pass-to-pass accuracy. It uses GPS and an electric motor mounted on the steering column to keep the vehicle on line without the use of hydraulics. The EZ-Steer system uses the guidance from the EZ-Guide Plus lightbar and automatically turns the steering wheel.
Ag Leader's DirectCommand granular system performs fixed rate or prescription map control of up to five products at once. It controls spinner spreaders, strip-till toolbars and air-carts that use motorized servo or PWM hydraulic valves for rate control. The DirectCommand granular system supports the use of bin level sensors for on-screen warning of low product levels and fan speed sensors to provide spinner or fan speed readout.
The simple to use application report feature helps meet product application and restricted-use pesticide record keeping needs. Enter the temperature, wind speed, EPA number and soil condition (temperature and moisture) and the Insight display creates a report as a pdf file on a memory card — including a map with legend, total volume/area applied as well as other system and user supplied data. The application report can be used for government-required record keeping, or for custom applicators who can supply it to their customers as supporting documentation for invoicing services provided.
The AutoSwath feature automatically shuts off individual boom sections as the sprayer enters and exits previously applied areas, this is especially useful around point rows and field borders where over-application and skips are most likely to occur. The Insight display can record multiple sub-boundaries within a field for use by the AutoSwath feature around waterways and terraces. This allows AutoSwath to turn individual boom sections on and off when passing in and out of these field areas.
