The new version allows for higher travel speeds so the operator can cover more ground in less time. The system extends the workday by overcoming visibility problems and reducing operator fatigue. Using FieldPilot, the operator can align rows uniformly, minimizing crop damage during cultivation and harvest. Mid-Tech says FieldPilot also eliminates guess rows and overlap.
