Leica Geosystems added two steer-ready kits to its list of steering solutions on its product list, releasing one for all steer-ready Case Magnum MX models, and another for John Deere 8*20 Series AUTOTRAC-ready tractors.
“In the past, some farmers who wanted to implement auto-steer solutions had limited options because the necessary parts to retrofit their tractors weren’t available,” said Trevor Mecham, North American sales manager for Leica Geosystems’ Ag Group. “We are working to solve those challenges by providing the components that will fit new and older equipment allowing farmers to take advantage of the efficiencies auto-steer systems provide. When it comes to serving the wide variety of farm equipment working in the field today, Leica is building a color-blind system.”
The two new kits include a steer-ready controller along with the associated wiring harness, brackets and fasteners needed to implement auto-steer solutions in these tractors. All of the steer-ready kits are designed to “plug and play” with Leica’s mojoRTK and mojoGLIDE auto-steer systems. Farmers with Case and John Deere tractors can pair the new steer-ready kits with the mojoGLIDE for 6- to 8-inch accuracy, or the mojoRTK for more superior RTK-level accuracy.
