This RoGator is running at around 12 mph with AutoFarm's FarmPRO steering tracking at 1/10th of a foot (1.2 inches) on a 100-foot spray boom. The steering system offers big savings on fertilizer and chemical costs by reducing overlap from several feet to inches, even sub-inch. There's no double coverage plus a lot less operator stress and fatigue. Photo inset is the Raven Viper PRO screen running the FarmPRO system. One screen handles RTK steering, application control, and boom management - a feature operators love because it greatly simplifies their lives by eliminating cab clutter.
