nfms-13-ravenDoing things smarter, not harder, is what precision agriculture is all about, so it just makes sense that Raven Precision took the time to attend the recent National Farm Machinery Show and give farmers a peek at what they have to make their work a bit more efficient. Tim Heins with Raven explained to Chuck one of their latest tools, the SmarTrax MD, mechanical drive auto steering.

“It’s the first mechanical drive system that we have developed and manufactured in-house,” adding that it’s rugged and easily transferable between a wide range of machines. Tim said it will be coming to dealers later this summer, while there’s information available now online. He added that there’s been a good response to it at the NFMS.

“We’ve had a lot of really good interest in it from our dealers who have come by to see it, [as well as] users and customers looking for a steering system.”
