Raven releases new steering system

Raven Industries announces the release of their newest assisted steering system, the QuickTrax system.

This system offers all the same great features as the standard SmarTrax steering system, such as hands-free steering, quick line acquisition, and sub-meter and decimeter modes, but with a much improved and simpler installation than the standard hydraulic valve system.

Electric motor drive

Utilizing an electric motor drive and attached directly to the steering wheel, the QuickTrax system provides an easy solution for almost all steering applications.

Standard hand tools are all that is needed to complete an installation and mobility from one machine to another is now easy to achieve.

QuickTrax can be used as a sub-meter system when coupled with a 10 Hz (or faster) sub-meter receiver, such as the Raven Phoenix 200 GPS receiver. It can also operate in decimetric mode when coupled with a high accuracy receiver like the Raven Phoenix 300 DGPS receiver and a Raven DGPS Enhancer.

Easy to operate

According to Marlin Melander, marketing manager for Raven Flow Controls, “The addition of QuickTrax to our line-up will provide the producer with an easy-to-install and operate assisted steering system. It will also allow the user to move the kit from machine to machine, thus reducing the need to purchase additional systems for other vehicles.”

QuickTrax is now available from authorized Raven distributors and dealers. For a directory of Raven distributors, please visit the Raven Precision Solutions Web site at www.ravenprecision.com <http://www.ravenprecision.com/>.
