Farmers and contractors need tractors that are faster, more precise and easy to operator. This will help to maximize their profits and retain a sustainable business. To achieve this, auto-guided steering has been proven to increase the crop yield by 6% compared to conventional steering.

Danfoss not only provides the electro-hydraulic steering units for auto-guidance. But also offers advanced hitch control solutions, valves, pumps and displays matching the needs of a modern agricultural tractor.

Our broad variety of sensors help monitor the condition of the tractor’s brakes, filter and oil reservoirs. This provides feedback to the fan drive system, hitch control system and power management system.
