Steering systems.

Right where you need them. In the field.

Even the very best operators can't be everywhere at once. That is why we have developed perfect systems for steering, measuring, visualisation and sensing.

GPS PILOT.

GPS PILOT.

As an integral part of the machine's steering hydraulics, the GPS PILOT is almost unbeatable in terms of steering accuracy – thanks to its proportional valve, wheel angle sensor and navigation controller. This combination is perfect for all tasks which depend on maximum pass-to-pass accuracy, e.g. drilling or a wide range of work in row crops. Depending on the precision level required, the GPS signals can be corrected by EGNOS, OMNISTAR HP, BASELINE HD or the RTK signal. GLONASS satellite reception can also be activated. As an option, CLAAS can supply a GPS ready machine by installing all the components required for the GPS PILOT at the factory. It can also be retrofitted. For machines from other manufacturers, CLAAS offers the GPS PILOT complete with manufacturer-specific installation kits.

AUTO TURN.

With AUTO TURN, accurate parallel tracking after automatic turning at the headland is no problem at all. This optional function prevents the inaccuracies (overlapping, untreated areas, large curves) which occur when manually lining up the machine with the next parallel track. Precision from the very first metre ensures that crooked crop rows post-emergence are a thing of the past. AUTO TURN also enables the operator to concentrate on controlling and monitoring the attached implement and to establish blocks automatically. Just set the number of tracks to be skipped and the machine lines up perfectly. Turning becomes significantly easier even in difficult conditions such as working at night or in fog or dust.

The right speed for every job.

For field work, the CLAAS GPS PILOT covers a speed range which caters for all requirements (25 km/h to 400 m/h). Ideal for all types of work, from rotary cultivation tasks which move a lot of soil to planting, the GPS PILOT acts as a virtual string which ensures that your rows are completely straight. When working with modern seed drills, speeds of up to 20 km/h are the norm. Even at these speeds, the GPS PILOT guides the tractor and implement across the field in a perfectly straight line while still maintaining the required accuracy.

Benefits:

  • High accuracy at all times and at all speeds
  • 25 km/h to 400 m/h (depending on model)
  • Also ideal for farms growing specialised crops
