John Deere has announced that it is adding to its precision technology product suite for the 2019 season. The new products are the 4240 Universal Display, AutoTrac™ Universal 300 guidance solution and updated 18-2 Gen 4 software.
The 4240 Universal Display is an affordable, portable and durable option, and it can stand up to the elements. Documentation and AutoTrac™ automated guidance are included with the display as well. Section Control and Data Sync with John Deere Operations Center can be added for producers who want to do even more with the product.
"The 4240 Universal Display is perfect for producers who want an economical but robust display for AutoTrac and documentation. It can be used on open-station John Deere tractors and equipment of other brands," said John Mishler, tactical marketing manager for John Deere precision ag products. "It's the ideal display for customers running mixed fleets who need basic precision applications for drawn sprayers, baling, planting, tillage and other operations."
AutoTrac Universal 300 will also be available for use on John Deere and other brands of machines that are not equipped with AutoTrac. This product will be replacing the AutoTrac Universal 200, and it features an easy, automatic setup, as well as a quieter steering motor in weather-resistant housing.
"Most producers have experienced time and cost savings, as well as the convenience and precision, that automated guidance offers," Mishler said. "AutoTrac Universal 300 provides producers these same benefits when operating machines that aren’t currently AutoTrac enabled in an easy-to-use, affordable system."
Finally, the latest software update for the Gen 4 family of displays will be Software Update 18-2. It will provide improvements in performance, machine uptime, and convenience of operation.
