The current volumetric Quantimeter
yield measuring system has been ditched in favour of a pressure cell design said to need calibrating just once a year while delivering more accurate results, while Field Scanner laser-based auto steering that uses a scanning device on the cab has replaced the cutting table-mounted Laserpilot system.
Yield mapping via the CLAAS Quantimeter
system is also supported.
