Implement guidance added to company line-up

Implement guidance added to company line-up
ProTrakker rolls out SonicTrakk for increased accuracy and control

Precision guidance often concentrates on the tractor pulling the implement or the combine harvesting the crop. ProTrakker goes a step further and offers systems to provide increased precision and control of implements. The company is rolling out SonicTrakk, which offers more control options for farmers seeing a higher level of accuracy.

The SonicTrakk system uses ultrasonic waves to do its work, so it never touches the ground, enhancing product life.

SonicTrakk is ISO VT compatible and utilized four exterior sensors for consistent implement repeatability all season long. These sensors are able to sense tire tracks, ridge till ridges, plants and other features. Due to non-contact ultrasonic technology (the product hangs in front of the implement as shown) this is a wear-resistant method that works well for seeding, cultivation, spraying, harvesting and other tasks.

Pair the system with the ProTrakker Hydraulic Hitch, and the system precisely guides your implement on slopes and contour rows. It also offers repeatability required for high accuracy farming including no-till, strip-till, and organic farming.

In a media release, Cory Miller, ProTrakker president, commented: "We are excited to provide this type of guidance option to our customers. ProTrakker prides itself on providing the most accurate implement guidance systems on the market today, and Sonic Trakk truly is a unique option that we think growers will embrace. Our team has been working closely with Reichhardt, an expert in developing agricultural technology, to deliver a product that meets the precision needs of farmers today."
