More and more tractors are leaving the factory auto-steer ready, so you only need to add a receiver and task controller to make the system fully operational. With these systems the steering is controlled by a hydraulic valve, and they rely on the operator terminal to be the interface. However, in 1994, when our AgroStar 6.21 first landed on farm, auto guidance was very much in its infancy.
