PitStop Pro tendering system
Deere designed a system that lets growers quickly change anhydrous ammonia tanks without leaving the tractor cab. Called PitStop Pro, the new tendering system can be added to Deere's 2510H nutrient applicators next year.
The PitStop Pro is attached to the applicator, and the operator hits an unhitch button to automatically unhook it from an empty tank. When the applicator with PitStop is correctly aligned with a full tank, the operator pushes a “couple” button to attach the tank. PitStop Pro may save more than an hour a day because the operator does not need to get in and out of the cab for hitching and unhitching.
