Topcon Electric Steering System Available Through AGCO Dealers

Equipment manufacturer AGCO along with the company’s technology partner, Topcon Precision Agriculture, recently announce the availability of Topcon’s AES-25 Accurate Electric Steering kits for Challenger and Massey Ferguson high-horsepower tractors, selected Gleaner combines, AGCO application equipment, and other brands of equipment. The AES-25 system will be available through the AGCO dealer network.

“Topcon’s AES-25 is an innovative and high performance automatic steering system for professional producers who want high-accuracy results to help maximize productivity,” says Marlin Melander, technology marketing specialist with Advanced Technology Solutions at AGCO. “From its easy installation to operator-friendly operation and high level of accuracy, not only does the AES-25 system provide precise steering control, but it’s an excellent alternative to common hydraulic steering systems.”

The AES-25 system allows growers to start at the accuracy needed for a particular job. They can step up to higher accuracy, such as real-time kinematic, with confidence to achieve full 2-cm (0.8 inch) pass-to-pass and repeatable accuracy. It’s made possible by the AES-25’s direct drive system, which provides enough power and torque to operate at centimeter accuracy.

The System 150 Automatic Steering System coupled to an AES-25 electric steering option provides row crop accuracy on vehicles that have not been outfitted with a hydraulic-based “guidance ready” option from the factory. AGCO dealers will have access to AES-25 installation kits for a wide range of vehicles, including machines sold by other agriculture equipment manufacturers. This will allow AGCO dealers to provide a complete technology solution, even to growers with other brands of equipment.

The AES-25 system’s quiet, high-torque direct-drive motor provides silent operation to prevent unwanted cab noise. Likewise, the AES-25 does not intrude into the operator’s working area. With its direct-drive motor there are no external components — such as scrubber wheel drive motors or large gear and motor housings — that could interfere with day-to-day operation. Plus, the AES-25 system can be installed and steering in just minutes, rather than requiring hours of setup like other steering systems. It also transfers easily from machine to machine.
“AGCO has long been committed to providing growers with efficiency-enhancing technology solutions that combine real-world practicality with world-class innovation,” explains Melander.
