Reported by one tester: “Either you know how to plough straight or not. I do. That day when we tested the Kv 2500 i-Plough, conditions were wet, the field had not been ploughed for 10 years. I must admit that I did not manage to plough straight, having the tractor sliding. I got convinced to test the FurrowCONTROL function. Just amazing. Furrows got straight. I now understand the need for it.”
Another tester: ”After a long working day, concentration is not at its best. I tested the FurrowCONTROL of the i-Plough. No doubt, that was relaxing. Furrows were definitely straight. I’ll use it.”
