As an available option, the hydraulic depth adjustment represents a great improvement in comfort as it allows, also on the move, the alteration of the working depth from the tractor cab. For further orientation a clear depth scale is supplied. So, operation in the field is as shallow as necessary and on the headland and in wheel tracks working deeper is possible

For the most arduous of applications

In order to increase the penetration into the soil on dry, hard soils, additional weights slices are available as a special option. One weight set consists of four 25 kg elements which are bolted together in pairs on the left and right hand side of the machine. The maximum additional weight for rigid machines is 200 kg and for foldable, 3-point linkage models, and on the Catros-2TS models, (in 4 m to 6 m working width) the extra weight is limited to 300 kg.

Catch crop sowing and soil tillage in one operational pass

Amazone Kompaktscheibenegge mit GreenDrill

To enable the sowing of catch crops directly or together with the soil tillage operation, AMAZONE offers the GreenDrill seeder box. It can be combined as well with the Catros, CatrosXL and Certos compact disc harrows as well as the Cenius mulch cultivator, the KG rotary cultivator or with the KE rotary harrow. The seed is distributed evenly by the spreader plates.
The GreenDrill seed hopper holds 200 l or alternatively 500 l and is easily accessed via the loading steps provided. Within the metering system located underneath the seed hopper, is a seed shaft that is equipped, depending on the type of seed and the application rate with either fine or normal seed wheels. The drive to the seed shaft is electric and that of the blower fan either electric or hydraulic.

Comfortable operation
For the control of the machine, the in-cab terminal 5.2 is available which gives the operator control of the seed shaft and the blower fan speed. In addition, an options' menu is available to assist the calibration as well as also indicating the forward speed, the worked area and the working hours. The seed shaft speed automatically matches to the varying forward speeds as soon as the on-board computer is connected via the 7-pin tractor signal socket.

The benefits at a glance
+ Sowing catch crops and fine seeds directly with stubble cultivation or with soil tillage
+ Various metering cassettes available
+ Wide distribution via baffle plates
+ Easy loading via the access steps
+ Modern operator terminal in two levels of equipment

Comfort with the pro-Pack and the central lubrication for the Catros

Amazone Kompaktscheibenegge Catros - Catros+ mit pro-Paket

With the pro-Pack, AMAZONE offers a special Equipment option for the Catros+ 5002-2 or 6002-2 when directly mounted onto a slurry system and thus subject to horrendous operating conditions. The pro-Pack provides specific solutions to improve the reliability and durability of these machines that are working constantly in slurry, such as, for example, when mounted on the back of a self-propelled tanker. In addition to the enhanced seals for the disc bearings, many bearing positions are provided with additional lubrication  points to ensure the continuing functionality and reliability when working under these aggressive conditions.

 

SynCult slurry distributor

Amazone Kompaktscheibenegge Catros, SynCult-Gülleverteiler am Catros+ 6002-2 mit pro-Paket

The direct incorporation of liquid manure during application offers huge benefits regarding the efficiency of nutrients and avoiding environmental harm. So, combining a liquid manure distributor with the AMAZONE compact disc harrow makes sure that regulations are fulfilled by the immediate incorporation of liquid manure after application.

In combination with Vogelsang, the SynCult liquid manure distributor has been developed. Using a galvanised Adapter frame, the distributor and the pipe routing for the liquid manure system are rigidly mounted above the first disc row of the Catros. Special galvanised flange plates on the disc bracket provide a solid fixing and an ideal positioning of the pipes. The liquid manure is delivered via the front disc row into the cultivated surface left by the discs. With the following second disc row, the organic manure is well mixed
in and covered by the soil. So, the distributor combines superbly with the soil tillage.

 

Central lubrication

Amazone Kompaktscheibenegge Catros - pro-Paket - Zentralschmierung

Another special option that AMAZONE offers is central lubrication for the Catros+ with pro-Pack, the Catros+-2TX and the Catros+ 12003-2TS. For the simplification of the lubrication process, a manual central lubrication system is available as an entry-level solution. Here one grease nipple serves as the supply for all greasing points on the machine. Hereby, sub-distributors guarantee supply to the lubrication points. The benefit of this system is that the grease gun has to be used just at the one point on the implement and no climbing on to the implement, which is heavily polluted with slurry and soil, is necessary.
For maximum comfort an electric central lubrication System is available. It provides the automatic supply to all lubrication points on the Catros+ with pro-Pack. In this way the maintenance can be significantly reduced and the reliability further improved. The electric central lubrication system is the comfortable solution for professional farms needing high work rates and with tight maintenance timeframes because expensive downtime can be saved.
