GatorTrak, AGCO’s 4-wheel steering system for RoGator, is an optional feature available exclusively on RoGator. GatorTrak greatly improves in-field maneuverability while reducing soil disturbance and crop damage. With GatorTrak four-wheel steer activated, the rear axle automatically adjusts to the front axle for coordinated steering, leaving two tracks through the end rows as opposed to four tracks with a conventional two-wheel steer machine. The tight, 16-foot turning radius also greatly improves maneuverability. AGCO Application Equipment has experienced growing demand for this innovative system as farmers seek technologies to reduce crop damage and maximize their bottom line to take advantage of higher crop prices.
