As the entry-level product of its popular Outback brand, S-Lite is a low-cost, portable, entry-level GPS guidance solution for non-precision spraying, spreading, and broad-acre tillage and seeding.

Offering many of the same features as its popular Outback S(TM) series products, Outback S-Lite includes Straight Guidance, Contour Guidance, and Return to Point. It can eliminate the need for a foam marker and is expandable to work with Outback AutoMate(TM), which monitors and controls individual sprayer sections to minimize overlaps and skips.
