The Auto-Guide satellite-based steering system from AGCO Global Technologies adds value to Fendt tractors, and now Fendt is offering Auto-Guide factory-installed on select models. The Fendt/Auto-Guide combination promises to boost productivity and reduce costs, says the company. The combination recently received a Special Mention Innovation Award at SIMA 2005, the world’s largest indoor exhibition of farm equipment and supplies.

    “We’ve had a lot of interest in Auto-Guide, especially from precision-farming minded users who are looking for increased efficiency and productivity,” says Tom Weir, general marketing manager, Fendt.

    Depending on the level of accuracy required, the Auto-Guide can reduce or even eliminate overlaps and skips to maximize use of labor, machinery, operator time and crop inputs. Eliminating a two-foot overlap on every pass with a 40-foot toolbar reduces fuel use and wear and tear on equipment by approximately five percent. It is the economic equivalent of getting an additional five acres production from every 100 acres farmed, the company says.
