Varying soil conditions, uneven loads or hilly terrain, such conditions may exercise considerable influence on the implement. Particularly in row cultivation this cannot be corrected by tractor steering. SBG were one of the first manufacturers to recognise the importance of implement steering in these situations and developed the TWIN steering. SBGuidance TWIN enables repeated field operations to be performed with unparalleled accuracy. In high-quality vegetables and organic crops TWIN offers new possibilities.
Plant and seeding activities are performed with unparalleled accuracy and subsequent operations like mechanical weed control, ridging or band spraying match up perfectly. Crop
damage caused by steering errors or too narrow row spacing are eliminated.
How it works
SBGuidance TWIN is operated via one Viper 4 TWIN terminal. The position of both the tractor and the implement, however, are each measured with its own GPS antenna. Because the tractor movements often differ from the implement, both are equipped with their own DynamIQ terrain compensation. The tractor is hydraulically controlled. For controlling the implement various steering options such as sideshift steering, drawbar steering, steered rear wheels or disc coulters can be selected. In this way for every situation and implement there’s always the optimum steering option available.
TWIN control can be used for all kinds of implements. Mounted equipment such as ridgers, planters or hoeing machines, but also for towed potato planters or (offset) steering TWIN harvesters is a perfect solution. Often an existing steering cylinder may be used. SBG also has three types of cylinders available for retrofit. The newly developed adaptor frame with Walterscheid catch hooks is the perfect solution when various instruments must be controlled.
- High accuracy with double steering
- Easy to use and setup via one screen
- Very compact with universal Side-Shift adaptor
- Both GPS antennas have their own 3D terrain compensation
