What can the automatic steering axle do?
The electronics automate the locking and unlocking of the steering axle. If a set speed is exceeded, the steering axle locks automatically, making critical braking manoeuvres safer.
If you want to drive around a tight bend and the speed is undercut, the steering axle is unlocked and the trailer rolls behind, protecting the material.
The steering axle is also automatically locked by the electronics when reversing. If you intervene manually in the hydraulics, the automatic function deactivates itself.

Why should you order the automatic steering axle?
Locking and unlocking the steering axle of the trailer while driving with the tractor is exhausting. It requires concentrated thinking and is often forgotten.
When the vehicle is empty and the steering axle is not locked, there is a danger of the trailer swerving sideways when braking. This is a major source of danger. Especially in agriculture, accidents happen more and more often with such trailers due to carelessness or hectic.
With the automatic steering axle system from Ilgenfritz Mechatronics, these errors no longer happen because the electronics reliably take care of them.
