Leica Geosystems today released Leica SteerDirect ES, the latest retro-fit electric steering system. Customers can install the assisted steering solution effortlessly into all major brands and models. SteerDirect ES reduces input costs and operator fatigue.

The electro-mechanical drive unit is quiet and latches on and off for easy transfer between vehicles. Adding Leica SteerDirect ES doesn’t involve integration into the hydraulic system or dismounting the steering wheel. Compatible with the Leica mojo3D guidance system and the Leica mojoXact the Leica SteerDirect ES offers a universal installation kit (Install Kit 805044) and several vehicle specific installation kits including:

  • Case IH MX & STX, New Holland TJ & T9000 (Install Kit 805047)

Additional vehicle specific installation kits will be available in the near future.

“With the Leica SteerDirect ES we provide another brand independent solution which gives farmers great flexibility. Regardless the color of a tractor, sprayer or harvester, customers now can easily add auto-steering in next to no time to achieve great results”, said Joe Arico, Manager Product Management and Global Support at Leica Geosystems Agriculture.
