When introducing an electrohydraulic hitch control to the Indian market, engineers had not accounted for the hostile conditions typically found on Indian farms. After some seat-of-the-pants modifications, a revised hitch control not only stands up to tough conditions, but carries a lower price tag as well....More
Grape and olive harvesting often involves steep slopes on wet ground—conditions that push traction control to its limits. Oxbo International answers this challenge with an electrohydraulic control system that eases the burden on operators while also conserving fuel....More
Tractors, of course, have become an integral part of any farm. You’ll see them at work tilling the soil, planting seed, applying fertilizers and pesticides, harvesting, and preparing the soil for next year’s crop....More
Industrial robots have had a profound effect on manufacturing by improving productivity, quality, and consistency. But robots are no longer confined to the factory floor. Agricultural robots are beginning to take the place of human hands in tasks much more sensitive than those typically found in manufacturing. Agrobot, Oxnard, Calif., has been working with local growers to test and perfect its SW6010 robotic strawberry harvester in California....More
When hydraulic or pneumatic lines connect to a moving machine component, there are several ways to accommodate the motion. While the easiest is to simply allow slack hose, this method can lead to excess flexing, premature hose wear, and damage from pinching or exposure to other hazards. Hose reels are another possibility, but generally they are useful only for single or dual lines and may not accommodate longer travel distances or larger hose sizes easily....More
