LH Agro: Interest-free finance for auto-steer and precision guidance kit

Topcon’s X-series consoles are able to control a range of implements and functions including auto-steer, variable rate application and auto-section control. The AES-35 electric steering wheel and AGI-4 receiver deliver high-accuracy automatic guidance in a retrofittable package.

LH Agro has extended its zero per cent finance scheme on its range of Topcon automatic steering and precision guidance systems.

The deal is available on a selection of Topcon equipment including the X-series range of implement control consoles, the AES-35 electronic steering wheel and AGI-4 receiver, as well as LH Agro’s nationwide RTK subscription service.

First launched 18 months ago in response to customer feedback, the finance deal was initiated to make it easier for current users and new adopters of precision farming equipment to upgrade to the very latest auto-steer and crop scanning technologies.

“On the back of the year growers have just endured – from record-breaking rainfall in the winter to the spring’s drought conditions – we’ve extended the remit of our interest-free finance deal to further ease the financial burden for growers who are facing a potential shortfall in crop yields, but who recognise the value of upgrading their machinery,” the managing director of LH Agro, Richard Reed, said.

“The scheme not only makes the latest precision farming equipment affordable for farmers who’re kitting out new machinery, but also for those who have an existing machine they want to retro-fit to make it auto-steer compatible, or a sprayer or spreader that they want to upgrade to include section control and variable-rate application.”

The Topcon X-series range consists of several ISObus-compatible implement control consoles, from the range-topping X35 (12.1-inch screen) to the entry level X14 (4.3-inch screen), all of which use a full-colour touchscreen to operate multiple implement functions including crop sensing, section control, variable-rate control, auto-steering and auto-headland turning.

The Topcon AES-35 electric steering wheel and Topcon AGI-4 receiver deliver high-accuracy automatic guidance in a retrofittable package that’s compatible for almost any non-steer-ready tractor or self-propelled sprayer.
