AutoTrac™ reduces overlap
AutoTrac maintains speed
AutoTrac assisted steering guides the machine with repeatable accuracy in nearly any field condition.
Reduces overlap and skips
AutoTrac increases profitability by reducing overlap and skips.
University studies have shown operators tend to overlap five percent to ten percent over the course of an entire day, which could mean up to 1.2 m (4 ft) of overlap with a 12.2-m (40-ft) implement. AutoTrac reduces overlap, creating big savings in fuel, fertilizer, seed, chemicals, equipment wear, and time.

Creates more consistent rows and uniformed field
AutoTrac allows the operator to maintain the optimal working speed for a specific application. This helps maintain top machine and implement performance, resulting in a uniform field. Consistent speed also allows for more acres to be covered in a day for those applications that require higher speeds, like spraying.
Maintaining repeatable accuracy is important in all farming operations, especially with cropping practices that require multiple passes through the field. Additional trips through the field increase the chance of putting emerging crop at risk. AutoTrac creates more consistently spaced rows, reducing the potential for crop damage with subsequent passes through the field.
Reduces soil compaction
AutoTrac allows operators to use tramline management more effectively, minimizing soil compaction. Additionally, AutoTrac allows the machine operator to select from a variety of guidance modes including straight track, AB curves, adaptive curves, circle track, and swap track. These tracking options allow the operator to select the track best suited for the field and conditions reducing the number of passes needed to cover the field.
Extends the time operators are able to work in the field
AutoTrac greatly increases operator productivity by maintaining consistent accuracy and efficiency. Operators remain more alert while they are in the field and are able to focus on implement settings and varying field conditions. AutoTrac also allows operators to confidently create evenly spaced rows past sunset, in rain, dust, or fog.
AutoTrac is available at different accuracy levels, can be upgraded, and can be used on a variety of machines with AutoTrac Universal.
