This week’s featured video was produced by AgJunction to demonstrate their Wheelman autosteer kits for existing tractors. The basic Wheelman Pro kit sells for just under $4,000, and provides accuracy down to 4-6″. They also offer more advanced kits that are accurate down to 1.6″, but requires a subscription to satellite service. With this innovation, you don’t have to purchase a brand new tractor to take advantage of the technological efficiency of autosteer. Whether tilling, planting, spraying, or harvesting, driving hands-free in precise lines without overlap or skips saves on input costs of fuel, fertilizer, chemical, and seed, and also reduces operator stress and fatigue.
To compete at today’s commodity prices, farmers must find every way they can to reduce costs and increase yields. Autosteering is not just an advantage, it’s a necessity. With HandsFreeFarm® by AgJunction and Wheelman®, we’re bringing affordable autosteering to every farm in America to help them prosper. AgJunction
