For industries that rely on off-highway vehicles to get the job done, machine maneuverability is vital to overall machine and operator performance. With ever-changing ground conditions and terrain, the vehicle must react to an operator’s commands in a precise, predictable way.
When operating a mobile machine such as a tractor, wheel loader, or telehandler, steering during work functions requires precise maneuvering.
In off-highway applications like road grading, harvesting crops, and lifting a load with a crane, an open line of sight is fundamental to getting the job done right — and done safely. Joystick steering is an option that can significantly improve operator sightlines in machine cabs.
When using dual path vehicles in off-highway applications, better, more accurate straight-line tracking control helps improve machine performance and efficiency.
Off-highway machine operators have unique steering needs. For example, compact utility tractors typically utilize a basic steering solution … while a large articulated dump truck requires a more complex steering solution that provides precise, reliable control.
Your customers expect the technological capabilities to access satellite-based, automatic steering systems that help improve the precision, performance, and productivity of their off-highway equipment used in agricultural and construction applications.
