|New Lineup of Products Makes Autosteer Available for Every Farm|
SCOTTSDALE, AZ, Feb. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - For farmers who thought autosteer was beyond their reach, AgJunction ( AJX.TO), the Autosteering Company™, offers new Wheelman™ lineup of simple, affordable autosteering systems every farm can benefit from.
Wheelman Pro™ makes autosteering simple and affordable for every farm. The GPS-controlled Wheelman Pro offers high-torque for older tractors, is dust and water proof (IP67 rated) and replaces the existing wheel with a high-grip durable steering wheel. The included guidance dashboard allows farmers to quickly define a repeatable field path and engage the Wheelman system to begin autosteering. (CNW Group/Agjunction Inc.)
The new lineup from AgJunction includes the Wheelman Pro and Wheelman Flexpowered by the Whirl ™ app.
Starting at just $3995, each Wheelman comes with everything a farmer needs for easy installation and operation (install kit, IMU, smart antenna, universal cable), at no additional cost. And, the Wheelman Flex offers an additional benefit allowing farmers to easily move and use the autosteer system between other equipment, further reducing the overall cost of outfitting a farming operation with autosteering.
The Whirl app, the brains behind Wheelman autosteering, is a free download for iOS and Android devices. Whirl allows farmers to use their existing smart devices (phone, tablet, etc.) as the display, eliminating the need to buy a custom display, which can easily cost up to $8,000.
"We believe that all farmers should prosper, and with autosteering, farmers can reduce input costs and increase yields," said Jeff Morris, AgJunction chief marketing officer. "Farmers that have invested in Precision Ag equipment continue to experience lower cost and higher yields, helping them cope with the effects of higher tariffs and lower grain prices. With the new Wheelman lineup, our mission is to bring the benefits of Precision Ag, currently available to only the largest farm operations, to the millions of smaller farms around the world."
Farmers can purchase a complete Wheelman system today at www.HandsFreeFarm.com. Just select a tractor from more than 850 makes and models supported today, select the Wheelman system, and purchase. It will be shipped to your doorstep in a couple of days. No subscriptions needed.
"I've been in the market for a guidance system for my 1978 tractor for a period of time. All the major brands were more expensive than I wanted to spend on that old tractor," said Chris Denton, who farms near La Denton, Kentucky. "When I discovered Wheelman could be purchased for half the money and I could install it right out of the box, I was sold!"
Farmers attending this year's National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky, can see a demo of Wheelman at work. It will be on display at the Machinery Pete Update on Thursday, February 14 at 10 a.m. in South Wing B 105 of the convention center. Interested farmers can also talk with Jeff Morris at the Machinery Pete Update.

|Introducing the First Precision Autosteering Mobile App|
AgJunction Eliminates Need for an Expensive Display
SCOTTSDALE, AZ , March 19, 2019 /CNW/ - Thanks to a new app being introduced today, farmers are no longer beholden to the exclusive and costly autosteer displays typically required by their autosteer service providers. AgJunction ( AJX.TO), the Autosteering Company™, today launched its updated Whirl™ app. This update empowers farmers to turn any mobile device into the display for AgJunction's Wheelman™ autosteer products – Wheelman Pro and Wheelman Flex.
"The Whirl app has all the functionality of other autosteer displays," said Jeff Morris , AgJunction chief marketing officer. "The app is able to create straight line or contoured paths, record what you are putting down in the field and the respective location, and pause when farmers need to set a marker and return to point. We're planning to push out regular updates to the app, at no additional cost to farmers and no in-app purchase required. This will ensure farmers are always operating their Wheelman products with the most up-to-date technology."
The new app easily connects the mobile device wirelessly to Wheelman and cellular service is not necessary for operation. Whirl is compatible with Android and iOS mobile devices, including tablets, and can be downloaded from the respective app stores. It even works on the entry-level Amazon Fire Tablet that sells for less than $50 .
Morris continued: "The ag industry is getting to a place where autosteer has become more of a necessity than a luxury. Until now, autosteer wasn't attainable or affordable by every farmer because of the cost and complexity of the solutions being offered today. And other autosteer technology is really limited when it comes to the equipment it supports. Our vision is autosteering for every farmer, and that's why we introduced Wheelman – an all-in-one, do-it-yourself, affordable solution. Now every farmer can have access to the most current autosteer technology at a reasonable price. We also believe farmers should be able to keep their technology current without any recurring or unexpected fees. So, after your Wheelman purchase, the Whirl app will keep your Wheelman up-to-date with no additional subscription fees or upgrade costs required."
The Wheelman™ lineup of simple, affordable autosteering systems that can benefit every farm, was introduced earlier this year. Starting at just $3995 , each Wheelman Pro and Wheelman Flex comes with everything a farmer needs for easy installation and operation (install kit, IMU, smart antenna, power cable), at no additional cost. And, the Wheelman Flex offers an additional benefit allowing farmers to easily move and use the autosteer system between their other equipment, further reducing the overall cost of outfitting a farming operation with autosteering.
Farmers can purchase a complete Wheelman system today at www.HandsFreeFarm.com. Just choose a tractor from more than 850 makes and models supported today, select the Wheelman system, and purchase. It will be shipped to your doorstep in a couple of days.
