SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Raven Industriesannounced today the release of AutoBoom XRT, the latest advancement in boom control. AutoBoom XRT’s industry-leading radar sensor technology uses simultaneous ground and canopy detection to maintain optimal spray height for maximum product efficacy. Pressure-based control allows for smooth movement and quicker reaction time, while center rack stability technology with optional dampers gives the operator complete control, maximizing boom life.

“The release of AutoBoom XRT shows Raven’s continued commitment to machine control innovation,” said Brian Meyer, Division Vice President of Raven Applied Technology. “Accurate boom height and control is critical in reducing misapplication, drift and operator fatigue.”

AutoBoom XRT is available as an aftermarket kit today with additional kits scheduled for release in January.
