Amazone Anbaustreuer ZG-TS – Die feste Größe

For large farms, agricultural contractors and farm overlapping operations, AMAZOME offers, with its ZG-TS, a high-capacity large area spreader for the quick and precise application of mineral fertilisers. The ZG- TS impresses with the outstanding accuracy and huge work rates provided by the TS spreading unit with its integrated AutoTS boundary spreading system. Convenient operation is made possible via the ISOBUS operator terminal, such as, for example‚ AMATRON 3, CCI 100 or AMAPAD and is available with 2 hopper sizes – 5,500 and 8,200 l.
As standard, the ZG-TS Tronic is equipped with 16 fold part-width section control which is carried out by matching the application rate and the delivery system to the width of spread. However, the ZG-TS Hydro comes equipped DynamicSpread ready making possible the control of up to 128 part-width sections via of mixture of application rate, delivery system and matching the disc speed.
Needless to say, the part-width section control for the ZG-TS can be also controlled via GPS.

Soft Ballistic System pro

ZA-TS Soft Ballistic System pro

Mineral fertilisers require an especially gentle treatment to ensure a precise distribution and accurate transport to the crop. Fertiliser which has been already damaged in the spreader can no longer be reliably distributed.

As a safety feature, AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System pro is integrated as standard. This means that the agitator, metering components and spreading discs are all optimally matched thus protecting the fertiliser and ensuring better yields.

1. Gentle guidance
The electrically driven star agitators in the hopper bottoms ensure an even fertiliser delivery onto the spreading discs. The slowly rotating, star shaped segments of the agitator evenly deliver the fertiliser to the relevant outlet opening. When the delivery system is adjusted, the agitator star rotates as well so that it is always perfectly positioned above the aperture. The agitator switches off automatically when the shutter slide is closed.

2. Gentle delivery
Due to the delivery system, adjustment to the throwing width and throwing direction can be regulated. In addition, the working width can be adjusted each side individually by changing the disc speed. The fertiliser is fed on centrally at a low peripheral speed resulting in little fertiliser damage. The concentric delivery system adjustment results always in a gentle treatment of the fertiliser.

3. Gentle acceleration
With a standard disc speed from 600 rpm up to 900 rpm, the AMAZONE‘s Soft Ballistic System pro gently accelerates the fertiliser. Even fertiliser types with minimal breaking strength maintain their spreading properties and provide a clean, even spread pattern.

4. Gentle ejection
With the AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System pro, as little energy as possible is given to the fertiliser for an optimum trajectory and a precise spread pattern. So, the spreading vanes are optimally adjusted to a laid-back position.

TS spreading system – Perfection in every component, like clockwork

ZA-TS Streuwerk

Composition of the TS spreading system
1) electric agitator drive
2) electric setting motor for rotating the delivery systems
3) electric setting motor for the fertiliser metering
4) delivery vane
5) boundary spreading vane
6) normal spreading vane
7) AutoTS actuation
8) electric setting motor for AutoTS including function check

Characteristics of the TS spreading system:
• High throwing width, still double-overlapping even at 36 m
• Integrated boundary spreading system
• High application rates (up to 10.8 kg/sec or 650 kg/min)

The agitator – soft-handling and gentle

Rührwerk

The basic function of the agitator is to convey the fertiliser flow actively towards the outlet aperture so that a constant rate of fertiliser can be applied. Fertiliser lumps, which manage to pass the sieve, are, especially at low application rates, actively broken up via the star agitator which runs in the hopper bottom. If foreign objects reach the hopper tip and the agitator is subject to an overload, the relevant electric motor automatically reverses in combination with the relevant shutter slide and remedies the disturbance autonomously. The perfect teamwork of agitator and shutter slides becomes obvious on headlands or when spreading in wedges. As soon as one metering aperture is completely closed, the agitator above stops automatically. In this way the valuable fertiliser is protected from being ground up.

The benefits of electric agitation
• two slow-running, fertiliser saving agitators; turning at just 60 rpm
• which switch off automatically as soon as the shutter slide is closed, also just to the one side and independently of each other
• that reverse automatically when blocked by a foreign object
• active delivery of the fertiliser flow to the outlet aperture

Electric setting motors – Ultra quick and precise!

A spreader which, due to the high application rates and operational speeds possible, explores new dimensions in terms of work rates and which, of course, needs to perform extremely precisely at the same time, requires setting motors that function extremely quickly and exactly. Especially in applications, such as the automatic on/off switching at the headland or in wedges, spreading using application maps or with the continuous on-board monitoring (ArgusTwin and WindControl), the setting motors ensure the highest level demands are met.

The brush unit – Clean transfer

ZA-TS, Bürsteneinheit

The bristles of the brushes which are fitted directly to the outlet apertures reach to the upper edge of the spreading vanes so that the fertiliser is safely delivered onto the disc.

Quantity effect-free metering aperture

Dosieröffnung

If it is intended to spread a constant application rate it is necessary to match the size of the metering aperture to the prevailing operational speed. Thanks to the shutter slide, this task is fulfilled very quickly and sensitively. Due to the kidney-shaped design of the metering aperture, the spread pattern remains unchanged and precise, even at varying operational speeds so that the position of the delivery system does not require any adjustment.

Stage 1: Hopper aperture slightly open
Stage 2: Hopper aperture half open
Stage 3: Hopper aperture wide open

TS spreading discs: Spreading system made from stainless steel – For a long service life

ZA-TS Edelstahl

On the TS spreaders the entire spreading system is made from stainless steel providing a long service life.

The vane change system enables the quick and easy change of just the spreading vane tips. The ideal solution, for example, for agricultural contractors.

Between normal spreading and border spreading, different spreading vanes are activated via the so-called AutoTS system without the necessity to change spreading disc settings.

Hard-coated spreading vane

The spreading vanes are coated with a special long-lasting anti-wear protection. This is made possible by an especially hard structure to the metal. This finish is produced through a high-speed flame heating process that develops an ultra-hard coating to protect the spreading vanes against abrasive wear. Consequently, the result is a three-fold increase in lifespan.

Spreading vane sets
TS 1 = 15 m – max. 24 m
TS 2 = 21 m – max. 36 m
TS 3 = 24 m – max. 54 m

Optimised spread pattern

ZA-TS Streubild

Normal spreading
Via the adjustment of the delivery system, the feed-on point of the spreading material on to the spreading disc is changed and thus the spreading width and the lateral distribution are controlled. In addition, the working width can be set even more individually by changing the disc speed.

Three-dimensional spread pattern
The spreading unit has been developed using three-dimensional spread patterns so that a perfect lateral distribution of up to 54 m working widths is achieved. The large overlap zones ensure a perfect spread pattern and are significantly more consistent with regard to any the external influences such as a side wind, change in topography, humidity and changing fertiliser qualities.

Non-sensitive spread pattern via the multi-sectional spread fan

ZA-TS Multi-Streufächer

The specific shape and angling of the spreading vanes result in a multi-spread fan from the TS spreader unit. This means that the long and short spreading vanes do not influence the spread pattern to either side and an optimum trajectory is maintained.

AutoTS – comfortable and precise: Lateral distribution right up to the field’s border

ZA-TS AutoTS

The disc-integrated AutoTS border spreading system enables the activation of the different border spreading procedures – side, border or watercourse spreading – comfortably via the Terminal in the tractor cab, irrespective of which side.

AutoTS - the ingenious principle

ZA-TS: Funktionsprinzip AutoTS

A setting motor twists the delivery vane forwards by approximately 10 ° so that, when border or watercourse spreading, the fertiliser is delivered via the shorter border spreading vanes. Due to the combination of disc speed and shorter vane, the fertiliser is thrown over a significant shorter distance without affecting it mechanically.

1) AutoTS – adjustment for normal spreading
2) AutoTS – adjustment of the delivery vane for boundary spreading

Transport box

ZG-TS Transport-Boxen


As an option, a plastic-moulded storage box, which is suitable for transporting the mobile fertiliser test kit, is available.

The new service offers drivers the possibility to get acquainted with a new machine prior to its initial operation. However, experienced drivers can also refresh their knowledge enabling them to utilise better still the full potential of their machinery.

The AMAZONE delivery system

ZA-TS Streuwerk

The delivery system with its electrically-driven star agitators in the hopper bottoms ensure an even fertiliser flow onto the spreading discs. The slowly rotating star shaped segments of the agitator deliver the fertiliser evenly to the relevant shutter outlet. In case of lumps in the spreading material, the agitator operates automatically in the opposite direction to clear the outlet so that an optimum fertiliser flow is maintained.

The two electrically controlled metering shutter slides ensure an immediate opening and closing so that the fertiliser is a vailable at the full amount right from the start.   Simultaneously the shutter slides are responsible for the metering of the fertiliser rate plus they can be operated independently from one another. For forward speed related spread rate control, such as, for example via AMATRON 3, or via any other suitable ISOBUS terminal, the metering shutter slides are actuated by the electric setting motors to match the application rate and speed.

The big outlet opening can cope with a high fertiliser flow so that the delivery system, with easy flowing fertilisers, is able to go spreading at operational speeds of up to 30 km/h.
The brush kit ensures a clean delivery of the fertiliser on to the spreading disc without splatter and without losing any “granules“.

Constant on-line monitoring

Vollautomatischer Streuer ZA-TS mit Argus Twin, Permanente Online-Überwachung

Both on the ZA-TS mounted spreader and ZG-TS trailed spreaders, ArgusTwin ensures always, via  continuous on-line monitoring and the readjustment of the delivery system, the optimum lateral Distribution for that fertiliser. This leads to a more effective fertiliser use and forms the basis for optimum crop management.

The system is immediately live and operates even when border spreading and if part-width sections are switched off and on. In hilly terrain, Argus even provides slope compensation of the spread pattern via the automatic readjustment of the delivery position of the fertiliser.

Due to the rigid fixing, the system avoids any moving components and is thus extremely robust and is completely maintenance-free.

Whilst Argus optimises the lateral distribution, the optional weighing system on the ZA-TS and ZG-TS ensures that the correct spread rate is being maintained. Thanks to the optionally-available tilt sensor for the weighing system on the ZA-TS, the application rate can be monitored continuously and maintained with the same precision even on sloping terrain.
