Maximum flexibility

In times of increasing prices for fertiliser, efficient base fertilisation becomes ever more important. Targeted fertilisation during soil tillage is a solution which provides the plant with nutrients in the best possible way. Fertilisation during soil tillage can also add logistical advantages when compared to fertilisation during sowing, especially when larger amounts have to be applied. So, any downtime of the seed drill can be avoided and the time frames for sowing can be more effectively made use of.

High outputs

The XTender features a pressurised tank with a capacity of either 2,200 l or 4,200 l, which can be split in a ratio of 50/50. Depending on whether it is intended to apply just fertiliser only, seed only or a combination of both, the XTender can be, from choice, equipped with either a single or double conveying systems. Application rates from 2 to 400 kg/ha can be achieved.

Comfortable operation

The electrically-driven metering allows the simple matching of the seed rate from the tractor cab, pre-metering in field’s corners and calibration at the press of a button.
As a special option, the well-known TwinTerminal 3.0, found normally on the seed drills, is available. Additional equipment options are the camera system, LED work lighting and internal tank lighting. These provide good visibility in the dark and the camera offers a good view of the following trailed machine.
The hopper is equipped as standard with a ladder and an appropriate loading platform which offers exceptional access.
Thanks to the large hopper opening, filling is quick and simple to accomplish.

 


High quality finish

For the hopper, AMAZONE relies on a deep-pressed base hopper. Due to its production via a deep-drawn process, the hopper is created without any corners, edges or weld seams, providing a constant and even flow of the fertiliser and the seed. Low level sensors in the left and right hand hopper tip monitor the fill level. The system sends an alarm to the terminal as soon as the minimum fill level is reached.

Universally combinable

Via the 3-point linkage (Cat. 3/4N), the XTender is mounted onto the tractor with a favourable centre of gravity. The coupling of the following implement to the XTender is also carried out via a standardised lower linkage which is, from choice, available is either Cat. 3 or 4N. XTender-T features its own running gear so that it can be either pulled behind the tractor via a cross shaft on the lower links, by using different towing eyes or with a K80 ball coupling as any trailed implement can. For the implement mounted behind, the same mounting possibilities are available.

Fertiliser supply tines for Cenius TX

Supply of the fertiliser is carried out in the shadow of the share. The depth at which the fertiliser is going to be placed can be adjusted via a flap in the fertiliser supply tines. The fertiliser supply tines can be used together with the C-Mix 80 share or with the new C-Mix 40 share.
Adjustment possibilities of the fertiliser position:
1) 100 % near the surface
2) 50 % near the surface/50 % under root
3) 100 % under root
