ZA-V mounted spreaders

Accessories

ZA-V Profis with weigh cell frame: He who weighs wins!

ZA-V Profis Wiegetechnik

No calibration required; just enter in the spread rate and drive off! There is no simpler way.

The weighing system, for the Super and Ultra frames, offers controlled comfort as well as more peace of mind. With its 200 Hz weighing technology, it works on-line to determine the different characteristics of the spreading material – and all this with the highest degree of measuring accuracy. It automatically compares the actual applied rate with the pre-determined rate. Deviations in flow behaviour, such as, for example with heterogeneous mineral fertilisers, are detected and the spreader automatically re-adjusts via the electric metering slides. The quantity applied is also precisely documented for the purpose of site-specific nutritional application.

For a balanced nutrient supply, the spread rate can be changed at the touch of a button via the terminal.

Tilt sensor for steeper sloping terrain

Neigungssensor

On the ZA-V Profis, any possible influences due to a change in the centre of gravity are taken into account by the on-the-move measuring procedure with the aid of the tilt sensor. The two-dimensional tilt sensor, which detects angles to the front and back or side to side, corrects any errors in the measuring procedure which might occur when driving up and down hills or when driving across a slope.

Low level sensor

Amazone Düngerstreuer ZA-V, Leermeldesensor

When spreading on slopes or when border spreading it can happen that one hopper tip is emptied quicker than the other. In order to check each outlet apertures individually, AMAZONE therefore additionally offers low level hopper sensors. With a premature emptying of one side, the relevant hopper tip is indicated in red in the operator terminal so that the driver is warned early enough.

Side spreading (yield orientated) with Limiter V or V+

ZA-TS Randstreuen

The adjacent field is also in a crop. In this instance a small amount of fertiliser being thrown beyond the field’s border can be tolerated. The fertiliser distribution inside the field is maintained so there is still about 80 % of the predetermined quantity even at the field’s edge.

Border spreading (environmentally-orientated) with Limiter V or V+

ZA-TS Grenzstreuen

If the field is positioned next to a road or a cycle path, no fertiliser should be thrown beyond the field border. In order to avoid over-fertilisation inside the field, the spread rate on the border side needs to be reduced. The border spreading procedure complies with the requirements of all fertiliser environmental legislation.

Water course spreading (environmentally-orientated) with Limiter V or V+

ZA-TS Grabenstreuen

In cases where a water course is situated directly at the field’s edge, the fertiliser environmental legislation prescribes the maintenance of either a distance of one metre with the aid of a border spreading device, or as much as three metres when not using a border spreading device. In order to prevent over-fertilisation inside the field the spread rate from the side of the spreader towards the border again has to be reduced.

Border spreading with border spread deflector

If the first tramline is situated at the field’s edge, border spreading (environmentally-orientated adjustment) is then achieved by the half-side shut-off of the spread fan. No fertiliser is thrown beyond the field’s border and, inside the field, optimum fertilisation is maintained.

Bed spreading with bed spreading deflector at both sides

Beetstreuen

For spreading special crops in beds to the left and right hand side of the wheel tracks, AMAZONE offers a bed spread deflector which virtually avoids any fertiliser being spread in the centre.

Limiter V border spreading system

Amazone Anbaustreuer ZA-V, Grenzstreuvorrichtung Limiter V

For side, border and water course spreading, the hydraulically-actuated Limiter V border spreading system is available. Prior to spreading, and depending on the desired border situation, the depth to which the Limiter V can drop to is set via a pin. Around the field’s edge, the Limiter V can then be hydraulically lowered to that pre-selected position and raised again in the field.

Limiter V+ border spreading system

ZA-V: Elektrischer Limiter V+

In this way, via sensitive electric adaptation of the angle of the Limiter V+ in relation to field’s border, a comfortable changeover between side, border and water course spreading is possible from the tractor cab. Due to the design of the Limiter V+ being open at the bottom, this can be swivelled down in steps from above into the spread fan diverting what is going towards the field’s border.

(1) With just a slight lowering of the Limiter V+ only the fertiliser flow of the long vane is deflected.
(2) If the Limiter V+ is lowered further, the fertiliser flow from both spreading vanes is deflected.
(3) In the completely lowered position, lamellae provide an accurate spread pattern towards the field’s border.

Side, border and water course spreading

Amazone Düngrstreuer ZA-V: Grenzstreuvorrichtung Limiter V+

For spreading next to adjacent fields, roads or water courses, the ZA-V can be equipped with the Limiter V+. The border spreading system can be lowered in small steps into the fertiliser flow. The swivelable adjustment around the centre of the spreading disc sets the Limiter V+ to the different working widths and fertiliser types. In this way an accurate spread pattern at the border is ensured.

Border spread deflector

Grenzstreuschirm

In the case of operation to spread directly from the field side into the inner field, the border spread deflector is available. When the border spread deflector is swivelled into work then spreading is carried out only with the field side spreading disc so that any fertiliser is deflected in such a way that it is thrown into the field and only behind the tractor, however, and not beyond the border. The border spread deflector can be utilised on both the left and right hand side. The actuation of the border spread deflector is carried out manually or, as option, hydraulically from the tractor seat. When swivelled out of work, the border spread deflector has no influence to the normal spreading.

Bed spreading deflector

Beetstreuschirm

For spreading beds to either side of the tractor, the bed spreading deflector provides the optimum fertiliser distribution without spreading any material behind the tractor. For optimising the fertiliser distribution, the telescopic end pieces on the bed spreading deflector can be adjusted to suit, depending on working width and fertiliser type. The bed spreading deflector can be utilised to either one, or both sides and actuation of the bed spreading deflector is carried out, similar to when border spreading, either manually or, as an option, hydraulically from the tractor seat. If the bed spreading deflector is swivelled upwards then again the spreader can be utilised as usual for arable farming.

Front-Rear duo – A new level of precision

Front-Heck-Duett

Two in one go:
For customers who intend to accurately spread two different mineral fertilisers in just one pass, AMAZONE offers the unique possibility of a front-mounted spreader. Other than when utilising blended fertilisers in one fertiliser spreader, this option allows the optimal setting of each spreader according to the properties of the relevant fertiliser. In this way, the perfect lateral distribution for both fertilisers is achieved. Also spreading with two different application maps is possible.

Comfortable and reliable:
To enable operation of a “reversed” fertiliser spreader on the front of the tractor, an intelligent software package is utilised which reliably mirrors the spreading function and required working without any rethinking. In this way, even normal, side, border and water course spreading can be actuated on the correct side without any problems. Even the optimum switching points for the automatic on/ off switching on the headland is matched.

The benefits of front-mounting:
• Possibility to accurately spread two different types of fertiliser in just one pass
• More capacity from the additional hopper capacity yet with the benefits of a mounted machine – manoeuvrable and speedy
• Front-mounting is possible with all ZA-V and ZA-TS ISOBUS spreader models

Position indicator for the border spreading systems

Positionsanzeigen

For checking the position of the border spreading system from the tractor cab, AMAZONE offers a specific position indicator. Via the mechanical display which is in sight to the front of the fertiliser spreader, the position can be comfortably monitored during the spreading procedure.

Roll-over cover

Amazone Düngerstreuer ZA-V: Abdeckrollplane

The roll-over hopper cover, either manually operated or hydraulically actuated from the tractor, is available for all S extensions and L extensions. It safely covers over the hopper access point and ensures, when compactly rolled in, the maximum filling opening. The roll-over hopper cover can also be combined with the bolt-on S 600 and L 800 extensions.

Swivel hopper cover

Abdeckschwenkplane

As a cost effective alternative to the roll-over hopper cover, the swivel hopper cover, with large sight windows can be chosen but only for the S extensions.

Swivel rolling and parking device

Amazone-Düngerstreuer ZA-V: Roll- und Abstellvorrichtung

The swivel rolling and parking device eases both the coupling and the uncoupling of the spreader and for when manoeuvring the spreader off the tractor in the yard. The castor wheels are quickly folded up and down and are optimally protected from dirt.

As an alternative to the swivel rolling and parking device, there is also a cheaper parking stand with integrated skid available.

Rolling and parking device for Special frame

Amazone Anbaustreuer ZA-V, Roll- und Abstellvorrichtung für Special-Rahmen

The robust rolling device eases the mounting and dismounting of the spreader and is handy for manoeuvring in the yard. The castor wheels can be quickly removed.

Calibration device

Kalibriervorrichtung

So that spread rate can be conveniently checked without having to remove the spreading disc, a secondary calibration device on the left or right hand side is available. In conjunction with the ZA-V Control and ZA-V Tronic spreading systems, an automatic time measurement is also possible.

Task Controller (job management)

Task Controller (TC) allows the data registration of the machine and the data exchange between machine and the farm management information system, using the standardised ISO-XML format. In this way, jobs can be comfortably imported into the terminal or the finished documentation can be exported after work. Both, the total values of the machine (TC.BAS) and also the location specific data (TC-GEO) can be saved. In addition to job management and to the documentation, Task-Controller can also be used to process application maps in an ISO-XML file format.

As standard, Task Controller is included in AmaTron 3 and in AmaPad. For AmaTron 4 it can be ordered via the “GPS-Maps&Doc” software pack.

• Creation or loading of jobs
• Processing jobs
• Documentation of the finished work
• Processing of application maps in an ISO-XML format

GPS-Maps – part-area, site specific application

GPS Maps

GPS-Maps enables uncomplicated part-area site specific management because this software module provides easy use of application maps in a shape file format. Here, either the required rate of the actual material to be spread or also the required active ingredient rate can be directly processed. This level of functionality is included with AmaPad as standard and can be added for AmaTron 3 and AmaTron 4 via the software packs “GPS-Maps” and “GPS-Maps&Doc”.

• GPS-Maps is an intuitive system to process application maps
• Automatic part-area site specific regulation of the application rate
• Optimum crop management via need-oriented application

GPS-Track – your parallel driving aid in the field

GPS Track

The GPS-Track parallel driving aid proves to be an enormous benefit when it comes to orientation in the field, especially also on grass or other areas without tramlines. It features several track modes, such as A-.B lines and Contour lines. The track lines are clearly numbered. Any deviation from the ideal line is plotted in the display by an integrated light bar. Thanks to the clear steering recommendations with exact tramline distances you always remain on track!

• With AmaPad, the GPS-Track function is already included as standard
• With AmaTron 4 and AmaPad, the light bar is, as standard, integrated already in the status bar

Everything from a single source!

Amazone Amapilot

Thanks to the AUX-N feature, you can operate multiple functions of the machine via AmaPilot+ or any other ISOBUS multi-function joystick.

The benefits of AmaPilot+:
• Perfect ergonomics
• Almost every function directly controlled via 3 levels
• Adjustable hand-rest
• Freely-programmable, individual key layout

Automatic part-width section control

Automatische Teilbreitenschaltung

If the terminal to be operated features Section Control, such as, for example, GPS-Switch part-width section control from AMAZONE, the switching of the part-width sections can be carried out completely automatically and in relation to the GPS position. Once a field has been established by the driver, then, in the automatic mode, he can fully concentrate on handling the vehicle whilst the switching of the part-width sections in wedges and on the headland is carried out automatically.

Benefits of the automatic part width section control:
• Stress relief on the driver
• Increase in precision especially at night or at higher speeds
• Less overlaps and gaps
• Saving of resources
• Less crop damage and environmental pollution

GPS-Switch

With GPS-Switch, AMAZONE offers a GPS-based, fully automatic, part-width section control for all AMAZONE operator terminals and ISOBUS compatible fertiliser spreaders, crop protection sprayers or seed drills.

GPS-Switch for AmaTron 3
• Automatic part-width section control of up to 80 part-width sections

GPS-Switch basic for AmaTron 4
• Automatic part-width section control of up to 16 part-width sections

GPS-Switch pro for AmaTron 4 and AmaPad
• Automatic part-width section control of up to 128 part-width sections
• Creation of a virtual headland
• Creation of Point of Interests (POI)
• Automatic boom lowering on an AMAZONE crop protection sprayer
• With AmaPad, the GPS-Switch pro licence is already integrated as standard

SwitchPoint

Amazone Düngerstreuer ZA-V: SwitchPoint

SwitchPoint allows, when utilising GPS-Switch, to re-adjust the on/off switching points depending on the fertiliser type and the working width. Both values can be taken from the setting chart and entered into the relevant operator terminal.

From simple to high-tech – everything is possible

With the ISOBUS compatible AmaTron 3, AmaTron 4 and AmaPad, AMAZONE offers three particularly comfortable operator terminals for its ISOBUS equipment. In addition to the pure machine operation, even more application possibilities are available, such as, for example, the automatic GPSSwitch (Section Control) part-width section control. To meet those requirements, licences are needed for the additional applications so that every terminal can be equipped individually.

• All applications come pre-installed and can be initially tested free of charge
• Intuitive and clear actuation

Everything in view with the 2-terminal solution

In addition to the possibility of utilising an AMAZONE ISOBUS machine via the tractor terminal, the possibility is available to separate the functionalities of the tractor and the mounted implement and to operate them via two terminals. The tractor terminal can continue to control the tractor or also display the GPS applications whereas the additional operator terminal in its UT display mode is fully utilised to monitor and control the machine.

EasyCheck – Precise spreading made easy!

EasyCheck

Digital, mobile test kit for the easy optimisation of the lateral distribution

Instead of testing trays, such as those found in the normal mobile test kit, the EasyCheck system consists of just 16 lightweight test mats made from rubber and the EasyCheck App for Smartphones. The test mats are positioned in pre-determined distances away from the tramline. Then the relevant tramline is spread and the mats with the fertiliser granules laying on them are photographed. The App now compares automatically how much fertiliser has been collected on each test mat and sets the results of the individual rows to an average. In cases where the spreading results are not the optimum, the App suggests readjustments for the setting of the relevant fertiliser spreader.
