How Does Driver Assist Harvest Solution Work?
The Driver Assist Harvest Solution coordinates the path and speed of the tractor during an "unload on the go" operation. Once the tractor and harvester are in proximity, the tractor operator engages automatic steering and propulsion. Driver Assist syncs grain cart with combine at distances up to 70 m (229 feet). This synchronizes the heading and speed of the tractor with the heading and speed of the combine, putting full control of the unload process in the hands of the combine operator.
Using the multifunction controller, the combine operator can nudge the grain cart forward or backward to fill the bin appropriately — no need to speed up or slow down to change sync position. Once the cart is full, the tractor operator can steer to disengage the sync and drive to the appropriate unload point.
