RcFarmArm Wireless Tractor Control
RcFarmArm Wireless Tractor Control mounted on arm rest of tractor seat

Having to constantly go between cab and equipment to carry out various tasks (especially while the tractor's running) is time/energy consuming, risky-and perhaps not physically possible for some. The RcFarmArm Wireless Tractor Control, which is a set of mechanical actuators that fits on the tractor's armrest, allows the operator to use a hand-held remote to start/stop the engine, control the throttle, engage/disengage the PTO, and regulate two hydraulic levers. The actuators are designed to work just like a person's hand to move the controls. An emergency shutoff inside the tractor and on the remote shuts the machine off and sets the actuators back to neutral. The RcFarmArm is powered from the tractor's electrical accessory point and backed up by a 12-volt battery.
