Implement adjustment made easy!

Einstellungen Gesamtarbeitstiefe und Scheibentiefe

A convenient, and above all quick implement adjustment was the focus during the development of the Cenius cultivator range.
As standard, the working depth is adjusted steplessly via a setting spindle, mechanically, tool-less and centrally at just one point on the machine. An easily visible and robust scale serves as an indicator to the amount of adjustment. In addition, the Cenius is also available with hydraulic depth control.
In this way a response to differing soil and application conditions is possible on the move. An easily visible scale aids the quick adjustment from the tractor cab.
(1) Adjustment of the disc depth
(2) Adjustment of the total working depth via the hydraulic depth adjustment

 

 

Cenius 4003-2, folding and 3-point linkage mounted

Cenius 4003-2, der klappbare im 3-Punkt-Anbau

With the Cenius 4003-2, the 3-stagger cultivators are supplemented by a folding mounted cultivator. Due to the hydraulic folding, the Cenius 4003-2 can be safely transported on the road irrespective of its 4 m working width.

Changing over the lower link category

Amazone Mulchgrubber Cenius - Wechsel der Unterlenker-Kategorie

Thanks to the boltable lower link pins, and the two mounting heights for the top link and lower link arms, mounting to the tractor in either Category 3 or Category 3N can be achieved.

C-Mix Special tines with shear bolt overload safety device

C-Mix-Special-Zinken mit Scherbolzen-Überlastsicherung

The C-Mix Special tine with its shear bolt overload safety device is the ideal and cost effective alternative for light and medium light soils without stones. Thanks to the low weight of the C-Mix tine, these are especially suitable for operation behind tractors with less lift capacity.

C-Mix Super tines with 600 kg pressure spring overload safety device

C-Mix-Super-Zinken mit 600 kg Druckfeder-Überlastsicherung

Together with the overload safety device, the C-Mix Super tine provides the perfect operational performance even when top soil deep loosening. The release force of the pressure spring overload safety device of the C-Mix Super tine exceeds 600 kg and features a lift potential of 30 cm. If this large Lifting space of 30 cm is not sufficient, the C-Mix Super tine offers additional safety via a shear bolt. In this way an efficient and constant operation is possible even under the most arduous conditions.

The heart of the cultivator: the shares

Amazone Anbaugrubber Cenius, Das Herz des Grubbers: Die Schare

The separation of guide plate from the share tip above all serves to reduce wearing metal costs. Depending on soil type, location and soil moisture, 3 to 5 share tips can be worn prior to exchanging the guide plate. The new guide plates on the C-Mix share system are manufactured with a spiral design that ensures, in combination with the Optimum radius of the guide plate, the perfect deflection of the soil flow and thus a very high mixing intensity but yet with a lower power requirement. With the proven C-Mix share system AMAZONE offers a wide range of soil-engaging shares.

Quick, safe and cost-effective

Amazone Anbaugrubber Cenius, Schnellwechselsystem C-Mix-Clip

With the C-Mix Clip quick change system, AMAZONE now also offers a system that enables a (virtually) tool-less, and above all, simpler, quicker and very comfortable share exchange.
Like the well-known C-Mix shares, the C-Mix Clip system consists of a guide plate with a tip. However, on the C-Mix Clip system, the guide plate is fixed to the tine and the tip is attached to the quick change system. After the initial, simple fitting of the C-Mix Clip carrier onto the tine, different share tips, specific to the relevant application, can be quickly fixed with the aid of an easily removable locking pin. The locking pin is guided at the back of the tine through a hollow screw and thus keeps the relevant share tip safely on the C-Mix Clip carrier.
The separation of guide plate from the share tip above all serves to reduce wearing metal costs. Depending on soil type, location and soil moisture, 3 to 5 share tips can be worn prior to exchanging the guide plate. The new guide plates on the C-Mix share system are manufactured with a spiral design that ensures, in combination with the Optimum radius of the guide plate, the perfect deflection of the soil flow and thus a very high mixing intensity but yet with a lower power requirement.
Depending on the application, AMAZONE offers three different share tips. The 80 mm wide C-Mix Clip share tip, the 100 mm wide C-Mix Clip share tip and the C-Mix Clip duck foot share that covers 320 mm. The 80 mm and 100 mm C-Mix Clip shares can also be used in conjunction with the 350 mm wing shares and thus give a complete overall soil movement when stubble tilling.

Levelling and crumbling

Top-class levelling of the worked soil horizon is the basic requirement for an even reconsolidation. This is why, mounted behind the tine rows, an additional levelling system is attached. Available here is a choice of spring steel closers or smooth and serrated levelling discs.
To ensure a clean matching to the next bout, the side discs and outer spring steel closers are adjustable in their height and angle.

Spring steel closers

Federstahlzustreicher

When used on areas with light soil and low straw content, the Cenius can be equipped with the more cost-effective spring steel closers. These spring steel closers are lighter than the levelling discs and feature a spring steel overload safety device. For an optimum matching up at either side, either the adjustable outer spring elements, or the lower-cost rigid outer closers are available.

Levelling discs

Einebnungsscheiben

For use in medium to heavy soils, the levelling discs behind the tines are recommended, these are, from choice, in either a smooth or serrated execution. The smooth 460 mm diameter levelling discs are ideally suited for operation on medium to heavy soils but where there is just an average amount of straw prevailing. The serrated 460 mm diameter levelling discs provide an increased mixing effect over the smooth levelling discs and provide a consistent drive, even where there are large amounts of straw.

Reliable disc bearings

Zuverlässige Scheibenlagerung

The individual concave discs are mounted via rubber spring elements and thus feature a maintenance-free overload safety device. The bearings of the discs are, of course, maintenance-free.

Cenius slide seal

Amazone Anhängegrubber Cenius, Cenius-Gleitringdichtung

With no need to lubricate the disc bearings, this results in a significantly reduced overall maintenance time. Face seals have been used for decades in road construction equipment where the rollers on the running gear of caterpillar-tracked vehicles have to be effectively sealed and continue to work absolutely reliably under the  toughest of operational conditions.

The benefits:
+ Optimal levelling via spring levelling tines or levelling discs, either smooth or serrated
+ Side discs available with individual height and angle adjustment providing a level finish between passes
+ Maintenance-free disc bearings with slide seals and life-long lubrication
+ Maintenance-free stone safety protection via rubber sprung buffer blocks comes as standard     

Loosening and mixing

Amazone Mulchgrubber Cenius, Lockern und mischen

The 3-stagger and 4-stagger layout of the tines in the main frame ensure an intensive and optimum incorporation of straw residues in the top soil. Thanks to the narrow row spacings of less than 30 cm, dry, hard topsoil is worked across the full area. At the same time, the spacious tine to tine spacings and the huge frame height of 80 cm provide a high material passage and ensure the highest operational reliability.

Large through-passage

The high underframe clearance also provides an undisturbed material flow, even where copious quantities of straw prevail. The following levelling tools evenly level the loosened soil.

Comfortable adjustment

Amazone Mulchgrubber Cenius - Komfortable Einstellung

On all Cenius, the depth setting of the levelling system is carried out quickly, safely and without tools via two spindles. To further improve the operational performance and the level of comfort, AMAZONE now also offers the hydraulic adjustment of the levelling unit. In this way the complete adjustment of the Cenius is possible from the tractor cab. The hydraulic adjustment provides maximum comfort and operational safety. Via the clearly visible scale, the current working depth of the levelling discs is visible from the tractor seat so that a simple and quick adjustment on the move is possible.
The position of the trailing discs or the spring levelling tines for crumbling and levelling is adjusted centrally via the setting spindle, again without the use of tools. Adjustable side elements allow the clean matching up to the next bout.
