IntelliSteer Auto Steering Systems
Maximise your return on investment with less waste and better yields!
New Holland IntelliSteer auto steering systems allow for extremely precise application of seed and materials. Available for New Holland TG and TJ Series tractors, IntelliSteer is an integral part of the tractor's steering system and uses global positioning technology to maintain arrow straight rows, and return to those same rows for operations later in the season.
IntelliSteer systems provide many cost-saving benefits:
- Fewer "skips" and "overlaps" for efficient, precise use of materials and money
You use the exact amount of crop input that is needed. By reducing seeding and spraying overlaps, you eliminate wasted seed, fertiliser and fuel and reduce your material and labour costs. And, because there's no accidental "skipping" of areas, you maximise your planted area for a maximum yield.
- Less compaction and higher yields
IntelliSteer helps control tractor and implement traffic patterns over your acreage. With each operation, you follow the same extremely straight rows, setting up permanent wheel tracks and substantially reducing compaction in the planting and root zone.
- Time savings and more potential hours of operation
In the open field, IntelliSteer steers for you and helps you line up each row, so you can use faster ground speeds. Lighting quality is no longer a factor since you don't have to refer to conventional mechanical markers. You can spray at night, and you have a greater window of opportunity for planting. You can also work in low-visibility conditions like fog.
- Less operator fatigue and greater efficiency for less-experienced operators
IntelliSteer guides your tractor while in the row so you can concentrate more on the implement behind, leaving you less fatigued at the end of the day.
The final result? Every plant gets its fair share of crop inputs…and you don’t waste a cent.
New Holland provides four versions of IntelliSteer with varying levels of accuracy to meet the needs of your operation and budget. Applications like seedbed preparation and working near irrigation drips or tapes require extreme precision.

Note: New Holland IntelliSteer auto steering systems provide accurate steering guidance for field operation in adverse conditions such as rain, darkness, dust and fog. However, IntelliSteer cannot "see" obstacles or stop automatically to avoid danger. The operator must remain vigilant and steer or stop the tractor to avoid collisions with obstacles in the field. It is always the operator's responsibility to ensure that visibility is adequate to allow for safe operation of the equipment under any and all adverse conditions.
The accuracy of any guidance system is dependent on satellite communication, field location, terrain, tractor and implement condition and setup, system installation, and calibration. A field demonstration and trial is the best way to determine actual guidance system accuracy in each situation.
