Synchronizing combine unloading with Raven cart automation

by

Growers looking for a smoother, less stressful grain harvest will have a new tool to consider for harvest 2024.

Raven Cart Automation makes it easier for any operator – at any skill level – to effectively run an unload on-the-go operation, says Raven Canada’s Chris Morson.

In this report from Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show in Woodstock, Ont., Morson outlines how Raven Cart Automation seamlessly synchronizes the cart’s heading and speed with the combine during the unload on-the-go operation and simplifies the process for operators.

With effective synchronization using local radio frequency, Raven Cart Automation ensures a smooth and reliable automated operation. When the grain cart driver is in range (within 70 metres) of the harvester, they can sync the cart’s direction and speed with the auger of the combine. This allows the combine operator to take control of bin positioning, ensuring a smooth harvest operation, notes Morson.

Raven says its cart automation system minimizes grain spillage when unloading on-the-go and increases field efficiency by reducing slow down events during the unload cycle. The company claims the unload cycle time is as good or better than a professional grain cart operator.

Morson says cart automation is available for fall 2024 and is compatible with most Case IH and New Holland combines 2020 and newer. An AFS cab connect is required for Case IH and PLM connect for New Holland.
