Adding NextSwath automated end of row turning to your AutoPilot or AutoPilot Motor Drive system gives it the ability to automatically turn around at the end of the field. When approaching the end of a crop row, NextSwath automatically calculates and executes the best possible path to turn the farm vehicle around and approach the next crop row or swath with the implement precisely aligned to begin working. This efficient and consistent end-of-row turning saves time and increases productivity, enabling the grower to approach the next line with a turn that is best suited for their vehicle and implement configuration.
By automating the turning process, NextSwath can eliminate towed implement undershooting or overshooting and minimize skips and overlaps when lining up for the next row. As a result, it is well suited for field tasks that use a pull-behind implement or require multiple applications during the crop season such as nutrient spraying. The ability to make tighter end-of-row turns with pull-type implements can also reduce the headland space needed at the end of the field for turning machines.
