INTELLIGENT BOOM CONTROL (IBC)

IBC makes it easier to maneuver the harvesting head. Operators no longer need to control each independent boom joint separately. Simply steer the harvester head towards the target, and IBC does the rest, automatically controlling all boom movements based on the grapple's location.

Operator Advantages

  • More productive
  • Short learning curve
  • Enjoyable to operate
  • Improved fuel economy
