Instant Steer Tractor Guide System
A pair of discs on a swing arm function as the tracking sensor, running in a guide furrow laid down in the field in a previous pass. The "brains" of the unit is a dashboard-mounted computer which electronically operates a series of directional valves in a hydraulic manifold which in turn automatically steer the tractor wheels. The computer has a built-in draft control that lets you adjust for uneven pull to the right or left. A flip of a switch changes from automatic to manual control. When switched to manual, the tracking sensor lifts from the field automatically to keep it from being damaged.
The guidance system takes about 2 hrs. to install on any tractor.
