- Hopper volume 5500/8200 litres

The robust ZG-B Special and ZG-B Super bulk fertiliser spreaders are top of the class when it comes to cost-effective fertilising. They are equipped with a strong universal lime spreading unit for working widths of up to 15 metres. This enables even large quantities to be evenly and accurately distributed. Whether you are distributing earth moist or dehydrated sewage sludge, the power and output of these bulk fertiliser spreaders is bound to impress!

Cutting costs with high performance!

Amazone ZG-B

(1) Stainless steel rate sluice gate for setting the spread rate with an easily readable scale directly in the operator's field of Vision, and easily adjustable. Optional: Hydraulic shutter operation with half-side shut-off possible with double shutter system.

(2) When spreading earth moist fertilisers and large application rates, the belt floor is subjected to extreme loads. With uneven loads, the unique belt floor control ensures that the rubber belt remains in a central Position. This helps to prevent damage and guarantees a long Service life.

(3) The rugged universal twin-disc spreading unit with oil-bath gearbox and overload safety for direct driving of the spreader discs ensures even Distribution, even with very high spread rates. Optionally available: OM spreading discs for the application of granulated mineral fertilisers for working widths of 10 to 36 m, easy to install.

Infinitely adjustable rate control

ZG-B Stufenlose Mengenregulierung

The infinitely adjustable rate control and emptying while stationary are enabled by the hydraulically driven floor belt gearbox (ZG-B Drive).

ZG-B Drive with AMATRON 3 on-board computer

ZG-B, AmaTron 3

Excellent operation of your ZG-B Drive is ensured with the state-of-the-art AMATRON 3 on-board computer. The Computer enables simple Operation and Monitoring of all hydraulic functions: e.g. the hydraulic shutter slide for half side shut-off, the swivelable hopper cover, Forward speed-related rate control, or the optional Limiter.

Reduce costs with AMATRON 3: Rising Prices and strict environmental regulations call for accurate, targeted use of valuable fertilisers. The specification of the ZG-B bulk fertiliser spreader with ist modern AMATRON 3 on-board computer and in conjunction with a GPS terminal enables site-specific mineral fertilising based on application maps.

Even spreading - no matter how fast you travel - can be ensured thanks to the forward speed related rate control. The AMATRON 3 operating terminal controls the speed of the hydraulic rubber bet floor according to the forward speed, thus enabling the potential of the spreader to be maximised.  

The optionally available weighing equipment is particularly useful for agricultural contractors. It enables you to determine the quantity actually distributed, and adjust the shutter slide as necessary. This guarantees an even application rate and provides the best prerequisite for efficient nutrient distribution. As an added bonus, the weighing Equipment also aids automatic plot-related documentation (ASD).

Omnia-Set spreading discs

ZG-B Streuscheibe

Precise: The OM Omnia-Set spreading discs are equipped with pivoting swivel vanes that generate a spread pattern that is extremely precise and safe. 
Easy: The working width and the spread rate can be easily adjusted via the spreading vanes and metering shutter without tools. 
Precious: OM spreading discs are made from stainless steel and easy to fit. 
Extra: Late top dressing is advantageous for generating quality crops. With the OM spreading discs this procedure is extremely easy to do without tools by just tilting up the standard equipped swivel tips on the spreading vanes. 
OM spreading discs for ZG-B: OM 10-16; OM 18-24, OM 24-36 (with hard metal coating for a prolonged service life)

FertiliserService with modern test hall

ZA-TS Streuhalle

For research, development and series support, an even more modern fertiliser test hall is now available. Here the AMAZONE FertiliserService works closely together with all major spreading material manufacturers – and this is world wide – to be able to provide you as quickly as possible with the best setting recommendations.
With the new on-line weigh cell system, it is now possible not only to analyse every spread test with regard to the lateral distribution, but also to the spatial distribution. This is of big benefit in the new development of fertiliser spreaders. But also in fine-tuning of automatic switching Systems (GPS Switch) this Information is also required.
In its selection of the measuring system, AMAZONE has relied on new innovative technology. The fertiliser spreaders are positioned on a revolving platform which spins around its vertical axle. With this measuring system, all imaginable working widths can be determined.



ZA-TS Duengeservice

Only when properly spread is your fertiliser worth its weight in gold.
The FertiliserService from AMAZONE enables an economical and environmentally friendly use of fertiliser. For more than 25 years test results of fertilisers from Germany and abroad, determined in the AMAZONE test hall, are stored in a computer database. It is not only the spread patterns and setting values which are recorded for these tested fertilisers but, in addition, the physical material characteristics which are also important for the lateral distribution. So, very comprehensive data is available enabling us to offer advice to all AMAZONE customers, who have unknown fertilisers and new fertiliser products, free of charge. 

We critically evaluate your fertiliser 
The best possibility to determine the setting values for fertiliser spreaders is by calibration in the test hall. However, it is not always possible to send us the required amount of fertiliser and so, for this reason, AMAZONE has developed a reliable laboratory test enabling us to test just a five kilo fertiliser sample and to pass on the setting recommendations to the customer based on our experience and the collected information.
