In a move that will make harvesting operations easier, particularly in odd-shaped paddocks, Kuhn has announced that GPS section control is now available on the FC 9330 RA mower conditioner, the GA 13231, and GA 15231 four-rotor rakes.

GPS section control automates the raising and lowering of mower units (FC 9330 RA) or swathing rotors (GA 13231 / 15231) at the headland or during manoeuvres.

Automation allows the operator to concentrate on the task of driving, and GPS section control automation will provide extra productivity during intensive work, at peak season, or when operating in restrictive or wedge-shaped fields.

Manual control of the machine is still possible via the control terminal or the ISOBUS CCI A3 joystick. The FC 9330 RA and GA 13231/15231 machines are compatible with ISOBUS CCI 800 and 1200 terminals for section control by GPS but also for use with other ISOBUS terminals.
