Visitors to the LAMMA show at the NEC, Birmingham on Tuesday 8th and Wednesday 9th January will be eligible to a discount on all Topcon X35 and X25 Autosteer kit purchased at the show and will also be able to take advantage of a free activation of Topcon’s Auto Headland Turn feature.
The 12.1 inch X35 and 8.4 inch X25 are Topcon’s fully featured, colour screen auto-steering and guidance consoles. Both use Topcon’s Horizon software to provide icon-based and user-definable views to control a range of farming operations: from auto-steering tractors, sprayers and combines, to controlling variable rate applications and automatic section shut-off of spreaders, sprayers and drills.
Topcon’s Auto Headland Turn function enables machines equipped with a Topcon auto-steer system to make fully automated turns at headlands using alternating, infill and single direction infill patterns.
“The Auto Headland Turn system assesses machinery geometry and available turning space on the headland to calculate the best turn path,” Richard Reed, Managing Director of LH Agro explains. “It then steers the machine to precisely position it for the next pass, thereby making headland turns completely automated and ensuring total accuracy during all phases of each field pass. This is of particular benefit when working on recently drilled land where there are no visual references such as tramlines or pre-emergence markers to indicate where to turn, and can also help to reduce driver fatigue.”
