+ FlowControl+ intelligent fill level management – for optimum weight distribution
+ Improved driving stability on slopes due to the intelligent loading of the front axle
+ Very compact design thanks to front linkage – better manoeuvrability in the field and for a safer road transport

UF with front tank

FT UF2002_FT_Fendt_d0_kw_IMG_8218_d2_170927

The special advantages offered of more manoeuvrable tractors with a mounted implement compared with trailed sprayers in smaller and more awkward shaped fields as well as the better behaviour on slopes are the major arguments for the front tank solution.

However, even in the 3,000 litre self-propelled class a comfortable tractor in combination with a high-class mounted sprayer and front tank is an interesting alternative.

The advantages of the front tank

Fronttank FT 04

Benefits over a self-propelled sprayer
• Huge advantage on price
• 80 km/h permitted speed with Fastrac
• Tractor can also be used for other operations

Benefits over a trailed sprayer
• Compact unit
• Less side crabbing on side slopes
• Optimum ballasting of the front axle results in a smooth travelling behaviour in sloping terrain
• Faster to back into corners on the headland
• Easy manoeuvre in smaller and in wedge shaped fields
• Compact transport on narrow country lanes and along roads
• The front tank simultaneously serves as front weight ensuring an optimum balance
• Reduction of soil compaction

The electronic Flow Control fill level management system

Das Füllstandsmanagement Flow-Control

The specific feature of the FT 1001 is the 100 % integration of the front tank into the mounted sprayer via the Flow-Control+ electronic fill level management system in the ISOBUS terminal. The technological basis of FlowControl+ is the two electronic fill level indicators in the tanks and the two high capacity injectors. The transfer capacity in both directions is up to 200 l/min ensuring the liquid is always ideally homogenised.

The ISOBUS terminal automatically controls the liquid circuit, ensuring always, an optimised weight distribution. Premature relief of the weight on the front axle is prevented and, depending on the fill level, new liquid is delivered from the front tank early enough so that the mounted sprayer is never emptied prior to the front tank and the liquid always remains homogeneous.

The manual control also enables the transport of just fresh water to the front tank. In practical terms, the FlowControl+ pump additionally assists the filling procedure so that a maximum suction capacity of up to 400 l/min is possible.

Handling and transport

Amazone UF mit Frontank, Sicher auf der Strasse

The compact sprayer-tractor unit is favourable especially in narrow lanes with hardly any obstruction to the view thanks to the well thought out design.

The AMAZONE FT 1001 fulfils all relevant EC guidelines and standards for traffic safety.

Quick handling and transport

Schneller An- und Abbau

No matter whether in the yard or in the barn: there is always a safe parking place for the compact combination on its parking rollers. The system’s simple handling is already convincing even after just a few hours in the field. The internal cleaning of the sprayer combination is carried out via the fresh water rinse tank on the UF. The additional 100 l capacity of the fresh water rinse tank allows the appropriate cleaning according to European guidelines (rinse tank capacity: min. 10 % of the tank volume).

Optional traffic light kit

UF2002_FT_Fendt_d0_kw_DJI_0213_d2_160204

The optional traffic light kit is necessary in cases where the traffic lights of the tractor is hidden. The covered headlights of the tractor must be duplicated on the tractor roof. The fitting on the front tank is not allowed.

Optional camera system

Mit Kamera und Monitor die Übersicht verbessern

In difficult driving situations, such as when pulling out of road junctions, the optional camera system on the front tank and on the mounted sprayer provides better visibility, and thus more safety, to the front and the rear. The high resolution, anti-glare monitor has a back-lit display and can display two cameras at the same time.
