As well as all the ’metal’, Lamma is also the place to see the latest efficiency-enhancing technology.
Claas UK will be launching the new ‘Easy on board app’, which offers IsoBus communication via an iPad, using a wireless link between the tractor and implement.
In addition to managing key machine settings and data, online access also enables the operator to use farm-specific data, applications and information, in addition to navigation, e-mail and weather forecasts from the field.

The iPad can be used with IsoBus machines from other manufacturers as well as Claas equipment, and can also be used to assign implement functions to the F-keys on the tractor operating lever.
Initially the app can be used to operate the Rollant 455 Uniwrap baler, the Cargos 8000 dual-purpose wagon, the Liner 3600 and 4000 rakes, plus the the Disco 1100 C Business, 9400 C Duo, 9200 C Business and 9200 C AS disc mowers.
Tractair will introduce its new central tyre inflation system, designed to allow tyre pressure to be easily adjusted for optimum efficiency in the field and on the road.
Three versions are available including the Airbox Mobile which offers automatic inflation or deflation of two tyres at a time and can be swapped between tractors.
Airbox Drive is integrated into the tractor and operated either via its own control box or an IsoBus terminal. Pressures can be adjusted on the move and fender brackets allowed the external pipework to be neatly stored.
The company can also fit systems to large trailed machinery such as sprayers and slurry tankers.
John Deere’s latest FarmSight precision farming developments on show include the MyJobsConnect job management tool and the prototype John Deere Manure Sensing system, which is based on the HarvestLab near-infrared (NIR) sensor technology used on the 8000 Series foragers.
