During spring planting, it can feel like every time you turn around you’ve got more and more to do. New Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) AccuTurn automated headland-turning technology from can help ease that burden.
AFS AccuTurn takes the guesswork out of turning on headlands. And that can help you do a better job of tilling, fertilizing or planting while keeping you fresher through those long days in the field. Using software logic from the Case IH Autonomous Concept Vehicle (ACV), this next-generation AFS autoguidance technology provides hands-free, automatic and repeatable turns for increased productivity.
Productivity-enhancing benefits of AFS AccuTurn include:
- Turn-path planning and turn-speed optimization: Seemlessly navigate the tightest turns and position the tractor and implement into the next pass. The industry-exclusive Auto-speed feature provides automatic turn-path planning that adapts to each operation’s speed, including maximum-turn-speed alerts.
- Precise product application to manage and control inputs: Intercept headlands or resume field passes with optimal implement position. This reduces inconsistencies seen through manual steering with mounted or trailing planters, seeders or fertilizer applicators at the end of the field.
- Multiple modes of operation: Two intuitive settings — Automatic and Turn Now — allow operators to customize the level of automation to their application at hand, from tillage and side dressing to planting and seeding.
- Flexibility for skip pass or pass-to-pass capabilities: Easily adapts to broadacre or row-crop applications for increased efficiencies and productivity.
During initial launch, AFS AccuTurn is available for any new and existing Case IH Steiger®, Magnum™, Optum®, Puma® or Maxxum® series tractors equipped with AFS AccuGuide™ autoguidance and an AFS 262/372 receiver, NAV II/NAV III controller and AFS Pro 700 display.
