Case IH Patriot Sprayers Now Equipped with AFS AccuTurn
Take the guesswork out of turning on headlands with this automated technology
Case IH is pairing their Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) AccuTurn automated headland-turning technology with their Patriot series sprayers, giving them the leg up on improved accuracy, reduced fatigue, and increased productivity. Compatible with the AFS Pro 700 display, this next-generation AFS auto-guidance tech, combined with the Case IH RS1 steering system, allows sprayer operators of all skill levels to get the job done right the first time. AFS AccuTurn allows for hands-free, automatic, repeatable turns in broadacre and pre-emergence applications with the help of path-planning logic.
“For the last year, operators have enjoyed the benefits of our new AccuTurn automated headland-turning on their tractors. Now, operators can take the guesswork out of turning on headlands on their sprayers as well through AccuTurn, which automatically controls the entire headland-turning process with industry-leading path-planning logic.”
- Chris Dempsey, Case IH AFS marketing manager
With the software solution from the Case IH autonomous concept vehicle (ACV), AccuTurn autoguidance technology helps to reduce skips and overlaps, save on fuel and labor costs, simplify operation and even add hours to the day during critical operating windows. Maximum turn speed capability has been increased to optimize performance and efficiency in spraying applications. Coupling that with the Patriot series sprayers means operators can count on quick, consistent and accurate application across every piece of ground, all season, every season.
“With AccuTurn, operators can seamlessly navigate the tightest turns and reduce inconsistencies seen with manual steering. Pairing that with our Patriot series sprayers means operators can be confident that they’re consistently covering all of the field, delivering product to each and every plant.”
- Mark Burns, Case IH application equipment marketing manager
