During turning manoeuvres at the headland, operators usually have to change between different controls, sometimes up to 12 times. In the 500 Vario it is not necessary to change controls, because the right armrest is the central operating control. Operators can rest their arm on it and control the tractor and implement using the multi-function joystick and Varioterminal. The linkage control module next to the crossgate lever controls the quick lift switch, depth control and front and rear PTO engagement. Thanks to headland management, standard on the 500 Vario, operating errors during turning manoeuvres are a thing of the past. With just a touch of a button, operators can activate automated operating sequences at the headlands. To optimise the sequence of the steps, they can also be edited and adjusted individually when the tractor is at a standstill. On a 10-hour day with some 160 turning manoeuvres, that can save operators up to 1,920 hand movements.
