Straight and smooth surfaced ploughing isn’t only a pretty sight, but the best preparation for the new season. A smooth seed-bed makes sure every plant has the perfect start at the same time. A level seedbed ensures a uniform emergence and thus makes weed control easier and more successful, especially hoeing for organic farmers. AutoPlough makes ploughing a less demanding job.
Fewer problems due to different kinds of soil and slope changes, and no more fighting the plough through tough spots, or running on turned land to straighten your mark. AutoPlough adjusts the plough width cylinder and keeps it continually on the required width. AutoPlough will automatically widen and narrow the plough to cancel out any deviations from a straight
furrow in every circumstance. This provides fewer changes in traction, more constant ploughing depth which means saving fuel, and a consistent, level finish. AutoPlough is a useful expansion of your SBGuidance Auto steering system. Experience has proved that machine auto steer works more effectively during spring cultivations when the driving lines are exactly the same as the plough lines. Implement deviation will be reduced appreciably.
AutoPlough is operated through the Viper® 4+ display making it easy to use. During ploughing all necessary information is shown in one screen. Settings such as working width, steering speed and steering boundaries are readily adjustable. The system can then measure the off-track distance, process it, and adjust the plough width accordingly. It is even possible to plough wedged or curved fields. AutoPlough is brand independent and easy to install. The plough width is adjusted by the existing plough width cylinder. The cylinder is operated by an electro-hydraulic valve or by using one of the tractor’s electro-hydraulic valves. (Fendt, John Deere, Valtra). For ease of operation additional optional sensors can be mounted to automate (dis)engagement of the system.
