Guidance and Steering

BE ACCURATE, EFFICIENT & PRODUCTIVE WITH AFS ACCUGUIDE™ & AFS ROW GUIDE

Advance your operation with Case IH steering and guidance tools like AFS AccuGuide™ for tractors and combines. Achieve year-to-year repeatable accuracy from 20cm down to 2.5cm. By adopting autoguidance, you will reduce skips and overlaps, save on fuel and labour costs, better manage your seed, fertilizer and chemical inputs, simplify operation and even add hours to the day during critical operating windows. AFS RowGuide™ works with AFS AccuGuide™ to provide accurate, hands-off steering during corn harvest to reduce operator fatigue during long harvest hours.

AFS AccuGuide™

AccuGuide was designed together with your new Case IH tractor or combine. If you choose the “AccuGuide ready” option, all electric and hydraulic components are fitted in the production plant complying with the highest Case IH quality and manufacturing standards. This adds to reliability and saves labour time compared to aftermarket installations. If you decide to enjoy the savings and operating comfort of a guidance system, just add the AccuGuide components later on (AFS Screen, Navigation Controller and AFS 372 receiver) and your machine will automatically follow a line with up to 2cm accuracy.

With the „AccuGuide complete“ option, your new Case IH machine comes fully equipped with AccuGuide from the factory and you can take full advantage of autoguidance from the day of delivery.

AccuGuide is ideally built into the Case IH operating concept. The AFS Pro 700 display is ergonomically integrated into the armrest. All menus are user configurable in up to 6 run screens showing field maps, guidance settings as well as tractor and implement functions.

AccuGuide activation can also be included in Headland Management Sequences to make operation even more convenient – no need to take your hand off the Case IH MultiController to press an engagement button.

AUTOPILOT™

• Keeps your machine and your implement on a repeatable path • All makes compatible

Autopilot is a steering system that can be retrofitted to many makes and models of machines. Using the machine’s electro-hydraulic circuit to provide automatic guidance, this retrofit solution will significantly increase your efficiency during field preparation, planting and harvesting by allowing you to drive more accurately and consistently during extended periods behind the wheel.

EZ-PILOT™

Focus more on performance while reducing fatigue

• Perfectly integrated solution • Sleek, clean design • RTK compatible

The EZ-Pilot™ system turns the steering wheel with its integrated electric motor drive and can be used together with the FM-750™ or FM-1000™ to give you hands-free farming. The motor integrated into the steering column provides clear access to all instrument panels and no decrease in leg room in cab. It allows also for unrestricted manual steering when assisted steering is not engaged. This is the ideal upgrade package to provide high accuracy at an affordable price.

EZ-STEER®

Simple, portable hands-free farming

• Fits all manufacturers´machines and models • Easy to install, easy to use • RTK compatible

Our entry-level assisted steering systems can be used together with the EZ-Guide® 250, FM-750™ or FM-1000™ to give you hands-free farming. While the EZ-Steer® keeps you on track on rolling land, ditches, waterways and embankments, you can focus on many different tasks, such as sprayer or planter performance, improving job quality and crop yields, without the stress of steering the tractor at the same time. This is the ideal upgrade package to convert your lightbar system to a handsfree system.

Mechanical Row Guidance

A simple mechanical system ensures the combine follows the crop rows. It takes the stress out of harvesting when using wide headers and high operating speeds; more than just productivity increases, it also reduces operator fatigue, allowing full performance during harvest.

Mechanical deflection based guidance solution.
Two mechanical touch sensors determine the position of the combine and send inputs to the steering system which ensures the combine, follows the crop rows automatically even at high working speeds and at times with bad visibility.

Cruise Cut – Laser Guidance

A laser eye system that ensures the combine follows the difference between uncut crop and stubble.

Laser eye based guidance solution.
The laser eye detects the crop edge (height between uncut crop and stubble) and sends inputs to the combine steering system. The header is then reliably guided along this edge. The laser eye is cab mounted and can be focused on the left or right side of the header.

Cruise Cut uses a laser beam thus operating perfectly in dusty conditions and at night. This results in maximum field efficiency with considerably less stress on the driver. The ideal guidance solution where multiple vehicles are running in the same field with different header widths.
