New: SIKUCONTROL John Deere 7290R with twin tyres
siku is extending the SIKUCONTROL range of tractors which can be controlled using the SIKU APP and Bluetooth technology with a smartphone or tablet. The many functions of the new SIKUCONTROL John Deere 7290R promise playing fun for tractor drivers who are young or young at heart. For the first time, siku is presenting a remote-controlled tractor with removable twin tyres on front and rear axles.
With its twin tyre sets, the powerful representative of the latest 7R range from John Deere creates an imposing appearance. If the ground is soft, the twin tyre sets reduce the pressure on the ground. On the SIKUCONTROL tractor, the tyres are connected using magnets which are securely integrated in the rims and connect the tyres securely. This means that the tyres can be fitted and removed very quickly and without tools. The John Deere 7290R can be driven with normal tyres, with twin tyres on front and rear axles, or with twin tyres on the rear axle only.
The SIKUCONTROL tractor made from metal with plastic parts is distinguished not only by its numerous features, but also by the love of detail so treasured by fans. All functions, as well as the tractor’s three gears, are controlled by means of the app. Can be controlled either via the virtual joystick or the movement and inclination sensors of the mobile devices. This intuitive feature is a welcome change. Just like coupling and uncoupling the trailers and attached devices, precise manoeuvring can be performed using the app. For this, the rear coupling is electronically controlled.
The headlights on the bonnet, the floodlights on the cab, the rear indicators, and the flashing lights can be switched on and off by means of the app. The SIKU APP also provides tractor fans with useful information about the John Deere 7290R. A name for the tractor can also be stored. The setting and functions of the app are updated continuously. Using the app’s OTA (Over-The-Air) function, the tractor’s software can be updated directly. As an alternative to the SIKU APP, the tractor can also be controlled using the Bluetooth remote control module.
SIKUCONTROL John Deere 7290R: in retail from March 2020, RRP 139.99 (EUR 189.99 with Bluetooth remote control module)
