Step-by-Step Hose Connection Procedure Summary
Note: Follow the order of installing hoses described below to enable easier hose connections on the AutoFarm valve.
1. Connect a short 3/8” hose [2] from the TANK port on the AutoFarm valve to the T port on Power Beyond. You must use
a metric reducer adapter to connect the end of the hose to Power Beyond.
2. Connect a short ¼” hose [3] from the LS OUT port on the AutoFarm valve to the LS port on Power Beyond. You must
use a metric reducer adapter to connect the end of the hose to Power Beyond.
3. Connect a long ¼” hose [4] from the LS ORBITROL port on the AutoFarm valve to the LS port on the side of the
tractor’s steering unit (Oribitrol). You must install a run tee plus an elbow adapter plus a metric thread converter plus an
in-line orifice before connecting the hose to the Orbitrol.
4. Connect a 3/8” hose [5] from the RIGHT port on the AutoFarm valve to the R port on top of the steering unit (Oribitrol).
You must install a run tee on the R port to allow the hose connection.
5. Connect a short 3/8” hose [1] from the PRESS port on the AutoFarm valve to the P port on Power Beyond. You must use
a metric reducer adapter to connect this hose to Power Beyond.
6. Connect a 3/8” hose [6] from the LEFT port on the AutoFarm valve to the L port on top of the steering unit (Oribitrol).
You must install a run tee on the L port to enable the hose connection
7. Double check all hose connections and confirm that they are connected correctly at both ends. It is very important that the
Tank hose be correctly connected to allow proper operation of the AutoFarm LS relief valve.
8. Tighten all hose connections at both ends.
9. Check that all hoses are connected to the correct ports at each hose end before starting the engine.
Note: If you do not have easy access to the steering unit, you can connect the AutoFarm Right and Left steering hoses
directly to the steering cylinder on the front axle. For this option, do not install the run tees on the Right and Left Orbitrol
ports but instead install them on the steering cylinder ports. Connect the extender hoses to the Right and Left steering
hoses to reach the front axle steering cylinder. Route the hoses along the side of the engine in a protected position and
secure with cable ties.
10. Turn on the engine momentarily (3-4 seconds) then turn off the engine.
11. Check for oil leaks.
12. Turn the engine on long enough to enable you to turn the steering wheel one turn right and one turn left.
13. Turn the Engine off.
14. Check for oil leaks.

Install the Valve Bracket
Adjusting the AutoFarm Relief Valve
The AutoFarm steering valve has a built-in Load Sense relief valve that limits the maximum pump pressure when
AutoSteering. The relief valve must be adjusted after you have completed the hydraulic installation and before you turn on
AutoSteer.
Figure 3-26 AutoFarm Relief Valve Adjustment
Follow the procedure below to adjust the relief valve:
1. Install a 5000 psi pressure gauge on the AutoFarm valve diagnostics port labeled as GP. Use a short extension hose on the
pressure gauge if necessary for easier reading.
2. Put transmission into “neutral” or “park” position and turn on the hand brake.
3. Start the engine and leave it at low idle.
4. Immediately check for oil leaks on all hose connections that were opened.
5. Turn the steering wheel full right and then full left and check for correct manuals steering response. Immediately check for
oil leaks on all hose connections that were opened. Air in the hoses may cause a slight steering delay when the system is
first powered up.
6. Observe the standby pump pressure shown on your pressure gauge. Standby pressure should be very low, or around
350psi. If standby pump pressure is zero or less than 100psi, you might have inverted the Pressure and Tank hoses.
7. Clear any bystanders from around the tractor because you will be moving the front wheels in the next step.
8. Press the right or left manual override button on the end of the steering valve. The front wheels will turn towards the stops.
Maximum pump pressure will be indicated on the pressure gauge when the wheels hit the stops.
9. Adjust the AutoFarm relief valve so that the maximum pump pressure is 2800psi when the wheels hit the stops.
10. Tighten the jam nut on the relief valve once the correct pressure setting has been adjusted.
11. Remove your pressure gauge by sliding the sleeve on the quick coupler.

Vehicle Specific Installation Calibration and Tuning
Guidelines
Note: For optimal steering performance, the AutoSteer system must be fully calibrated and then tuned.
Transducer Calibration
The transducer calibration procedure on this vehicle is different to other AutoFarm installations because the transducer is
measuring a low pressure Load Sense pressure signal. In order to provide good manual kick-out response, you must calibrate
the pressure transducer HIGH number to be about 3000 counts above the LOW number.
For example, if the LOW count number is 15,000 then you should adjust the HIGH number to approximately 18,000. To
achieve this setting, gently turn the steering wheel in the second step of the transducer calibration procedure while looking at
the counts being displayed on the User Terminal. Confirm that the pressure transducer calibration is correct by testing the
manual kick-out feature while driving in AutoSteer mode. AutoSteer should disengage when you turn the steering wheel. If
spontaneous kick-out occurs while in AutoSteer mode, recalibrate the pressure transducer and increase the HIGH value
slightly. Repeat this procedure until you obtain good manual kick-out without spontaneous kick-out in AutoSteer mode.
On this vehicle, the steering wheel will turn freely and AutoSteer should kick-out when the driver turns the steering wheel
while in AutoSteer mode. This result is the expected behavior on this vehicle and is different than other AutoFarm installations
where the steering wheel does not turn while in AutoSteer mode.
Default Values
If the wheels vibrate while in AutoSteer mode or if the steering is too “twitchy”, you may change the following internal A5
AutoSteer parameters to resolve the problem:
•
•
Change parameter “D12_ ACTIVE” from “2” to “0”
Change parameter “D19_K” from “1” to “10”

Note: Internal parameters must only be changed by an AutoFarm trained technician.
Starting the Calibration Procedure
Follow the procedure described in Table 10-1 to calibrate the vehicle.
Note: Always start your tractor before powering ON the AutoFarm system.
Note: You need a GPS correction signal to perform the calibration procedure. The GPS correction signal can be provided
by the base station, OmniStar or WAAS and the A5 AutoSteer system must be in full working condition. (Roof Module
plus the User Terminal)
