AGCO (NYSE: AGCO), a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural machinery and solutions, announced today virtual “ride and drive” experiences that provide in-cab demonstrations of its popular RoGator® and TerraGator® application equipment. The company is rolling out virtual ride and drives and other engagement opportunities at

In-person ride and drives have been a staple experience at AGCO events and dealerships for many years to allow potential customers to obtain operational experiences with advanced agricultural equipment. The new virtual ride and drives ensure that customers can observe much of what they always have at live events in an even more convenient setting.

“Ride and drives are one of the highlights our customers experience at events like IFCA’s MAGIE show, which was canceled this year because of coronavirus concerns,” said Greg Pumo, brand manager, AGCO Application Equipment. “But a virtual ride and drive is the next-best thing, and we’re excited to roll it out for our dealers, the application community and anyone else who has always wanted to see what it’s like behind the wheel of these impressive machines.”

The RoGator Virtual Ride and Drive allows users to observe the RoGator C Series’ popular LiquidLogic® system, one-touch fold, recirculation feature, section and boom height controls, and instant on/off nozzle capabilities. Drivers will also be able to examine the Raven™ last pass and VSN™ visual guidance system as they appear on the cab’s display.

The TerraGator Virtual Ride and Drive showcases the TerraGator C Series’ precision and versatility as the equipment efficiently covers many acres of crops. Users will witness the unit’s multiple cruise speeds, the boom’s fast and easy unfold process, shuttle shift capability, and intuitive technology interfaces. Also demonstrated is TerraGator’s Raven Slingshot® functionality, which allows operators to create jobs, select prescriptions and maps, and update the system with completed tasks.
