Support for OnTrac2™ Assisted Steering System is Added to the Ag Leader® Integra Display
Today, Ag Leader Technology, Inc., a leader in the development of precision farming solutions, announced the February 2011 addition of OnTrac2™ assisted steering support to the Ag Leader® Integra display. Support of the OnTrac2 steering system is a valuable complement to the full-featured, year-round precision farming display.
“Many growers are moving their Ag Leader Integra display between vehicles, but they may not have a need for a hydraulic steering system on all of these machines,” says GPS and Guidance Product Manager, Matt Leinen. “Now, growers will have the option of adding OnTrac2 assisted steering to these vehicles with a simple installation process. The split-gear design of OnTrac2 doesn’t require removal of the steering wheel, but instead simply latches on and off.”
OnTrac2 eliminates skips and overlaps, lowers fuel consumption and reduces operator fatigue. The high-torque, positive gear drive of the OnTrac2 delivers the turning power needed for the most demanding of agricultural vehicles and eliminates slippage that is typical of friction motor steering systems. Adding support for OnTrac2 to the Ag Leader Integra display will provide growers an economical option for adding assisted steering to tractors, combines, application rigs and more – and the system can be easily transferred between implements with its “Lock-N’-Roll” installation.
