Raven Industries has released over 50 new steering kits in the last 12 months with the latest evolution of the company’s SmarTrax platform, something we learned quite a bit about at the recent Raven Innovation Summit.

Tim Heins, product manager for steering and guidance, says they have coverage for over 300 different models of machines. “One of the challenges when you’re a company like Raven when you have a lot of different colors that we try to cover is getting kits for a lot of different machines,” he said. “With all that we offer, from planters, to GPS, to field computers, you have to have the steering solution for that – you gotta be able to steer the machine.” Tim says Raven steering and guidance options include SmarTrax, SmarTrax RTK, and SmartSteer.

The more than 220 Raven distributors and partners from all over the world who attended the summit had the chance to see most of Raven’s precision technology in action during a ride and drive event. Tim took me for a ride in a John Deere 9410R. Check it out below:
