Hands-free steering for 'Gators'

WESTMINSTER, Colo. – Beeline Technologies announces new steering platforms for aftermarket product Arro, which include the TerraGator 1803, 1804, 6103, 8103, 8104 and 9103 series machines and RoGator 854, 864, 1054, 1064, 1254 and 1264 machines.

Arro helps bring efficiency to spraying and spreading operations by ensuring even application by minimizing overlap and skips while operating at higher speeds.

"The customers definitely want it if there's a choice,” said Pete Romano of Quincy Farm Chemicals, Quincy, Wash.. “There's been excellent reception in the grower community. It's due to the quality of the spreading jobs that we can do with the Beelinet, it's far superior than anything we can do without it."

QFC have been using BEELINE Steering Assist products since 2002 in their fleet of sprayers and spreaders, according to Romano, a farmer president of the Agricultural Retailers Association.

He says other benefits of Beeline include reduced operator stress.

"It's much easier on them from a spreading standpoint because they don't have to worry about guiding the machine all day long in a straight line,” he said. “That part of the job is taken care of so they can relax and monitor the machine and keep an eye on so many other aspects of the application process very comfortably.

“When they get done at the end of a long day they are not near as stressed or as tired."

Arro can be quickly and easily transferred between all ag vehicles so growers can reap the benefits of hands-free steering across all their farming operations.

Beeline, the leader in hands-free Steering AssistT was the first company to steer a self-propelled sprayer with a John Deere back in 1999 with a JD 4700.

Beeline Technologies, Inc. is a privately held company, which through pioneering research has achieved global market leadership in GPS/INS steering assist systems for self-propelled agricultural equipment.

BEELINE Technologies was established by farmers in 1994 and is headquartered in Brisbane, Australia and Westminster, Colorado. For more information, visit
