Kuhn says the optional system helps save time during the hitching process

 

Kuhn has introduced an automatic steering axle system as an option on its Metris 2 and Oceanis 2 trailed sprayers to enable more precise driving and reduce crop damage when spraying.

Fitting a machine with steering axle technology is usually a time-consuming task, with brackets to make and the linkage to attach to the rear of the tractor.

The Track Assist system greatly simplifies the process by replacing the mechanical connection with a gyroscopic sensor, which is simply fixed to the rear of the tractor with a magnet.

The gyroscopic sensors detect the steering angle of the tractor and the sprayer follows the tractor’s trajectory, without the risk of the link touching the crop.

Simple to fit and easy to use, Track Assist has a wide operating angle of 23 degrees (28 degrees on the Oceanis 2).

The system also activates across a wide forward speed range, from 2km/h up to 22km/h, to ensure efficacy working at the headlands and safety when in transport mode.

The Track Assist system also realigns the sprayer with the tractor when reversing, to increase the ease of manoeuvrability.
