Hands free headland turns
Two outstanding Fendt Guide features combine to deliver completely hands-free headland turns – greatly improving efficiency and reducing operator fatigue.
- Fendt TI Auto saves and automatically runs headland sequence of work steps, at the right time and in the right place
- TI Turn Assistant automates the headland turn.
Fendt TI Auto
Fendt’s TI Auto system relieves operators of thousands of repetitive operations by fully automating the entire headland sequence.
Headland sequences can be manually programmed in, at a standstill, or recorded and saved when entering/leaving the headland. The actions and steps are replayed at the touch of a button. Working in combination with Fendt Guide, each step, such as raising and lowering, is activated in precisely the right location, without operators having to touch the controls.
U-Turn mode is the most common choice for conventional tillage operations. It can also be used for working across the field by skipping adjacent pass, and then returning to fill in the remaining passes.
Part Field Mode
Part Field Mode enables the field to be worked in a number of ‘plots’. This allows operators to fully complete a part of the field before moving across to the next ‘plot’. This is useful when working in uncertain weather conditions and bigger fields.
Suitable for smaller headlands the Y-Turn is most commonly used with mounted equipment. The sequence starts automatically, slows the machine with the cruise control and the driver can then put it in reverse and forward. It then steers the tractor back into the next track.
