Control from the Cab
All functions are easily controlled electronically from the ISOBUS display allowing the operator to fine tune the Excelerator® XT to match field conditions and working speed and view exact settings on the display. Front and rear gang angles can be adjusted simultaneously or independently for precise adjustment to suit field conditions and maintaining the same capabilities as Excelerator not equipped with Smart Soil Technology.
When raising and lowering the machine on end rows or for transport, the operator still uses the tractor SCV control. This maximizes ergonomic comfort and familiarity for one of the most frequent operations.
8 Customizable Presets
Operators can store favorite settings for all functions using 8 customizable presets and then quickly switch between them during operation. A preset only mode can be used where the customer wishes to limit the operator’s ability to adjust the machine only between predetermined settings.
ISOBUS equipment certified by the AEF is included in the online database. The customer can verify compatibility of ISOBUS functions between the machine and the terminal to be used. A true plug and play solution despite tractor brand and with no additional compatibility hardware required.
SST Tractor Interface Center (TIC)
The TIC for SST machines houses the hydraulic blocks, solenoid valves, Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and ISOBUS harness. The TIC is completely assembled and tested at the factory to ensure connections are correct before the machine ships.
Sensors are fitted with plastic covers which protect them from the environment and help ensure reliability in the field. Lift and gang circuits feature multiple sensors allowing the system to alert the operator should cylinders be out of phase and to provide redundancy in the event a sensor gets damaged.
Mechanical Gang Gauges
Even when equipped with SST, the Excelerator XT 8010 still features the large, easy to read mechanical gang gauges to help the operator verify the actual gang setting with the intended adjustment shown on the ISOBUS display.

Customers requiring an ISOBUS display to run the SST system have the option of purchasing one of the KUHN CCI terminals. Available in 2 sizes, 8” (CCI 800) or 12” (CCI 1200), these fully touch screen displays offers some of the greatest versatility and functionality on the market. Customers who do not have an ISOBUS ready tractor can also purchase the KUHN ISOBUS tractor harness and a GNSS receiver to full convert their tractor ready for Smart Soil Technology.
Award Winning System
Smart Soil Technology’s value within the agricultural industry has been recognized by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) with an AE50 award. These awards are given to products that represent the best innovations in engineering and technology for agricultural, food and biological systems.
