I’ve been thinking about this for a while…
very often on modern tractors many distributors but not necessarily all used, even more often at the front. in my case it is useless in the front. I found the possibility of piloting a distributor. So I thought of a solution to drive by this distributor.
Thinking about using the available hydraulic section as a proportional valve? Are you thinking about powering an external proportional valve connected to one of the sections?
In either case, it’s not that simple.
You must take into account that the steering system usually has a separate circuit powered by a separate pump, which ensures stable flow and pressure, thanks to which we can precisely steer. A connector designed to connect machines no longer provides this, when a lift or other function is operating there are pressure spikes or drops depending on the position in the row, it is difficult to ensure accurate flows. Autoster needs a really precise and thoughtful steering system to keep the tractor going straight, it’s quite difficult.
