The Raven Cruizer offers a unique combination of easy operation and installation, with options previously reserved for more expensive equipment. A built-in 10Hz DGPS receiver provides accurate sub-meter guidance for operations such as tillage, spraying, and harvesting to help growers improve efficiency and profitability.
Installing Cruizer is a simple do-it-yourself, two-step process that takes a few minutes. The unit comes packaged with a RAM Mount mounting bracket, power cable with adapter plug for instant in-cab power and an external DGPS antenna. Cruizer can also be easily removed for use in other tractors and equipment, or even a pickup.
Cruizer features a large 5.7-inch color touch screen display that is highly visible in both day and night modes. Icon-based menus and status indicators operate with a simple touchscreen display. The high-resolution display provides swath guidance and coverage area information using both aerial (bird’s eye) and downfield 3-D perspectives combined with traditional LED indicators.
A field review screen helps verify coverage by showing skipped areas as well as allowing calculation of acreage contained inside a defined boundary. Cruizer’s Last Pass contour guidance technology guides the operator to one swath-width from any previously applied area. The operator can easily switch on the go between straight line (A to B) and Last Pass guidance patterns, making Cruizer ideal for use in terraced fields or along waterways.
Raven Cruizer is fully compatible with Raven’s SmarTrax and QuickTrax systems, allowing growers to upgrade from guidance to steering. Cruizer also can be used with Raven’s tilt module for sloping terrain areas.
