AutoFarm and MacDon Collaboration

November 11, 2008 11:13 AM

AutoFarm GPS AutoSteer is now compatible with MacDon self-propelled windrower tractors. The AutoFarm product is a custom-designed kit for MacDon to provide a factory-installed look. AutoSteer can be fully integrated into the hydraulic system on MacDon swathers. The system provides hands-free steering with high levels of accuracy, repeatability and reliability. This collaborative project enables the system to provide a clear operator environment. All 2009 M Series machines from MacDon will feature AutoFarm's remote engage feature in a button mounted on the speed-stick handle. AutoFarm AutoSteer operates on WAAS, OmniSTAR (DGPS) or RTK correction signals at speeds up to 11 mph. This system is especially suited for large headers like MacDon D Series drapers and R Series disk headers.
