A new system by Claas allows machinery operators to make precise turns at headlands with automatic guidance.

The system, called Claas ‘Turn In’ calculates the optimal path for the next approach and completes the turn automatically.

Claas Harvest Centre precision farming product manager Travis Ryan-Salter says the Turn In system makes it easy for drivers when there is no point-of-reference to follow.

"Without fixed reference points, it is often difficult to line up with the next track at headlands," Ryan-Salter says.

"Starting at an angle of 90 degrees to the track, Turn In identifies the optimum path to follow based on the machine’s speed, steering lock and alignment.

"The system then guides the machine onto the next track automatically using a pre-defined path to achieve the desired turn.

"The driver can override the system at any time.

"The system will identify a new track and path as soon as the driver changes speed, steering lock or other factors."

The Turn In system is able to be fitted to any Claas steering mechanism which using the S7 or S10 terminal.

"These include Lexion combine harvesters, Jaguar forage harvesters, Xerion, Axion and Arion tractors," he says.

"Existing steering systems can be retrofitted by means of an activation code."
