March 6, 2013 — Leica Geosystems announces several new product features and support updates as part of the company’s continued investment in precision agriculture solutions. The company also releases additional steering solutions for several existing and new tractor models for the Leica mojo3D as well as access to the GLONASS constellation for the Leica mojoMINI.
By supporting GLONASS, the Leica mojoMINI now gives access to the Russian global satellite navigation system and the standard GPS constellation. Using GLONASS, farmers can access an additional 20 plus satellite signals. With the added constellation the Leica mojoMINI now offers even more reliable and consistent coverage.
To strengthen Leica Geosystems steering capabilities, support for Deere & Company’s new R series AutoTrac Ready tractor models via the Leica mojo3D and mojoXact is now available. It includes the John Deere AutoTrac™ Ready tractor models 61xxR, 62xxR, 72xxR, 82xxR, 83xxR, 83xxRT, 93xxR, 94xxR, 94xxRT, 95xxR, 95xxRT. This provides the market with a simple single cable installation offering a quick and easy aftermarket steering solution.
A hydraulic kit is now available for the Valtra BT and BH models which is not typically factory fitted with any auto steering equipment. Additionally, Leica Geosystems released an innovatively designed hydraulic load reactive kit, which focuses on maintaining a tractors load reactive function for an intuitive steering response.
“Our continued support to the regions has been the main priority behind these recent releases to meet specific global market demands of farmers”, said Joe Arico, Manager Product Management and Global Support at Leica Geosystems Agriculture Australia.
