All drawbars are provided with the drawbar shock absorbance system, an important design element in the UX. Minimising the to and fro movements between frame and drawbar it also protects the booms and prevents any rocking movement of the tractor keeping the operator comfortable.

Linking to the tractor – Just as you like it!

Amazone Anhängefeldspritze UX, Anhängung

No matter whether using a rigid hitch drawbar with ball coupling or the classic towing eye, AMAZONE always offers the right solution for your tractor. Make a choice between top or lower mounting, between 40 mm or 50 mm diameter towing eyes, or the K 80 ball coupling.

1) Top mounted drawbar with towing eye and hydraulic parking jack
2) Lower mounted drawbar with towing eye and mechanical parking jack

Hydraulic parking jack

Hydraulischer Stützfuß

A height adjustable jack Is integrated in the frame and with its convenient optional hydraulic height adjustment makes coupling to the tractor quick and easy.

Axles and brakes – Safety first!

Anhängespritze UX, Achsen und Bremse

With permissible speeds of up to 60 km/h and the ALB system (automatic load dependent braking) the UX trailed sprayers are ideally suited for on the road. Thanks to tyres of up to 520/85 R46 (2.05 m diameter), the ground pressure is kept at a minimum. The track width of the rigid axles is available from choice from 1.50 m to 2.25 m. In addition, the large ground clearance of up to 82 cm leads to a versatile plant protection operation. By reversing the wheels, two track widths can be achieved.

The adjustable axles on the UX 3200 and UX 4200 provide the highest flexibility due to their stepless track width adjustment from 1.50 m to 2.25 m. For extreme conditions, there is a hydro-pneumatic sprung axle option with patented roll stabilisation. AutoTrail axle steering offers the driver the highest level of comfort due to the elegant control via the multi-function joystick AmaPilot.

2) Adjustable axle with stepless track width adjustment from 1.50 m to 2.25 m
3) Hydro-pneumatic axle suspension with AutoTrail axle steering

Low centre of gravity

Amazone Anhängefeldspritze UX, Behälter – Niedriger Schwerpunkt

The design of the UX tanks along with the compact AMAZONE booms ensure a low centre of gravity and very compact transport dimensions. In addition, the booms, even when folded, are optimally protected in transport via the sprung parallelogram boom frame.

Tank – beautiful yet smart!

Amazone Pflanzenschutzspritze UX - Behälter

The compact spray agent tank, which is made from polyethy-lene, is especially secure, light and long lasting. The absolutely smooth inner and outer walls with rounded corners allow quick and easy cleaning. Residual spray volumes are kept at a minimum due to the specific shape of the tank sump.

Benefits of the tank design
• Easy cleaning of the spray agent tank
• Very low residual spray volumes
• Low transport height

Infinitely-adjustable, hydraulic main agitation

Anhängespritze UX, Hauptrührwerk

The intensity of the hydraulic agitation can, steplessly, be reduced down to nothing in order to avoid any foaming of the crop protection agent or to facilitate spraying out the remaining tank contents.

Cleaning systems

Three high-performance, rotating nozzles clean the spray agent tank internally. Short pipe runs and hose cross-sectional areas as small as possible make for low residual volumes.

Dual pump system – High performance and reliability

Anhängespritze UX Super, Doppelpumpensystem

All UX Super feature a low maintenance dual pump system with a capacity of 520 l/min. When spraying, one 260 l/min pump supplies the booms and the secondary agitation. The second pump, also with a capacity of 260 l/min, provides fill-level dependent, intensive agitation via the main agitator. As standard, drive of the dual pump system is carried out either via a wide angle PTO shaft or, as an option, via the hydraulic pump drive.

During the filling procedure at a nominal pump speed, the full pump capacity if available for filling the spray agent tank. At the same time, either the contents of the induction bowl can be drawn out via the venturi or the total fill capacity can be increased up to 700 l/min.

Benefits of the piston diaphragm pump:
• Simple handling due to its self-priming capability at the start of the filling procedure
• Very high, consistent application rates with system pressure up to 10 bar
• Can run dry and are liquid-fertiliser proof
• Long service life

SmartCenter centralised operator station – including the induction bowl

Anhängespritze UX Super, SmartCenter

One of the most striking features of the UX Super is the new grey covers found on both the left and right hand side front corners of the sprayer. Underneath the cover on the left hand side is located the SmartCenter with induction bowl and the complete operator station and both fill ports for suction and pressure filling as well as two dust proof storage compartments. Whereas under the right hand cover is an additional 240 l dust-proof, lockable storage compartment with removable shelf.

Any and every possibility:
With its centralised SmartCenter operator station, the UX Super ensures that highly comfortable handling. No matter whether the SmartCenter is equipped with the Standard- Pack, Comfort-Pack or Comfort-Pack plus, filling and mixing with the UX Super is easily and comprehensively handled.

SmartCenter with Standard-Pack – Simple and intuitive operation

Anhängespritze UX Super, SmartCenter mit Standard-Paket

With the Standard-Pack the operation of the UX Super is carried out mainly via a suction and a pressure tap. The suction tap indicates from where the pump is going to draw from and correspondingly, the pressure tap indicates as to where the spray liquid will be pushed.

Your benefits:
• Simple access to the suction filter and to the self-cleaning pressure filter
• Self-explanatory, operator controls ensure safe handling
• Short fill times due to the high-capacity 60 l induction bowl with a draw-out capacity up to 200 l/min
• Homogeneous spray agent mixture thanks to the standard mixing nozzle in the bottom of the induction bowl
• The 7-way pressure tap with cam and seat valves technology provides simple operation and a reliable filling procedure

SmartCenter with Comfort-Pack – actuation made easy

Anhängespritze UX Super, SmartCenter mit Comfort-Paket

With the Comfort-Pack, the TwinTerminal 3.0 is also supplied as standard. In addition, the automatic fill stop for suction fill is made possible. As an option, fill stop is also available when force filling from a bowser. During the spraying operation, the agitator control regulates the agitation intensity in relation to the tank fill level. As the fill level decreases, the agitation intensity is automatically reduced down to nothing to prevent any formation of foam at low fill levels. In addition, the automatic agitation regulation offers auto--dynamic agitator control. This means: if a larger application rate is required at the boom, the agitation capacity automatically reduces.

After the spraying operation is finished, Comfort-Pack provides fully automatic cleaning which can be controlled completely remotely from the tractor cab. Additional functions such as boom rinsing, the cleaning the spray liquid circuit from heavy deposits or a defined dilution of a subsequent tank mix in the field are also included within Comfort-Pack.

Your benefits:
• Operator-friendly TwinTerminal 3.0 for suction valve control
• No foaming of the spray agent due to the automatic, fill-level dependent control and switching off of the agitator
• Always maximum capacity when spraying and agitating thanks to the auto-dynamic agitator control
• Comfortable filling of the spray agent and fresh water tanks via the automatic fill stop
• Remote-controlled, automatic cleaning programmes for the complete sprayer wash-out

7-way pressure tap – safe switching with cam and seat valves

Anhängespritze UX Super, 7-Wege-Druckhahn

All sprayers with the Standard-Pack and Comfort-Pack are equipped with the particularly practical 7-way pressure valve. As oppose to a normal pressure tap, the in-house developed valve from AMAZONE consists of a cam and seat valves. Exclusively by swivelling in and out the handle on the pressure tap, the relevant liquid paths are reliably opened.

SmartCenter with Comfort-Pack plus – Operator terminal with pressure-sensitive touchscreen

Amazone Anhängefeldspritze UX Super

Handling of the UX Super is made especially comfortable by Comfort-Pack plus. With Comfort-Pack plus, the operator terminal, with its touchscreen instead of the manual taps, eases the machine operation considerably. The complete control of the spray agent circuit is carried out solely via the pressure- sensitive touch screen which functions perfectly even when wearing gloves. The user just selects the desired function and the sprayer adjusts itself automatically! In the job computer, two individual filling profiles for different operators or applications can be stored. For filling then just the hose has to be coupled and the machine automatically fills the spray agent tank and fresh water rinse tank up to the desired tank fill level. As an option, the operator can select individually an adjustable pause in the filling of the spray agent tank.

Automatic and independent cleaning

The complete sprayer along with the induction bowl can be cleaned fully automatically. For this, the UX Super features, via Comfort-Pack plus, a variety of cleaning programmes: intensive clean, quick clean or just a simple rinsing out of the booms. In addition, after every filling procedure, the induction bowl can rinse itself on its own.

Fresh water pump – Continuous internal cleaning

In conjunction with Comfort-Pack plus and the load-sensing system, an optionally-available 160 l/min capacity fresh water pump is available, with which the induction bowl can be supplied with fresh water even when bowser filling under pressure. In addition, the spray agent tank can also be filled in parallel via the suction port. The additional fresh water pump also allows the constant cleaning of the UX Super.

Your benefits:
• Simple operation: choose the function and the machine adjusts everything fully automatically.
• Maximum comfort: automatic filling and automatic fill stop for when both suction and bowser filling
• Maximum safety: fully automatic cleaning of the entire machine including induction bowl
• Maximum capacity: automatic quick fill via the venturi when the chemical induction is completed
• Auto-dynamic agitation control

The induction bowl – UX Super: High performing and efficient

Amazone Anhängefeldspritze UX Super

The 60 l induction bowl is located directly in front of the operator station. The conical bowl shape, with its central outlet and the enormous suction capacity of up to 200 l/min, ensures the quick, trouble-free filling and its complete emptying. For inducting powders or granular spray agents, an additional mixing nozzle is positioned underneath the suction aperture which safely prevents any blockage of the suction aperture. This mixing nozzle can be steplessly adjusted for intensity and can be operated in parallel to the new, also steplessly-metered high capacity rinse ring. As a further advantage the induction bowl can, also when pressure filling from a bowser, be additionally supplied with fresh water via the optional rinse water pump.

Everything has been thought of

Amazone Anhängefeldspritze UX Super

The canister cleaning nozzle features a spacious contact area with which the nozzle can be activated by just pressing down the canister or measuring jug. On the upper part of the canister cleaning nozzle, another small contact area is located where the nozzle for cleaning the canister neck can be activated. When opening, the dust and liquid proof lid on the induction bowl horizontally swivels over to the side where, in this position, it serves as a practical shelf which has holders for measuring jugs and inverted canisters. Thanks to the integrated run-off facility, any residual liquid is returned directly into the induction bowl. With the aid of the canister cleaning nozzle, a complete internal cleaning of the bowl can be carried out.

Simultaneously superbly robust and superbly light

Gestänge superleicht und superstabil

Thanks to the special profile design AMAZONE booms are at the same time superbly light and superbly strong. The boom working widths from 15 to 40 metres allow the optimised matching of the sprayer to the structure of the farm. High-grade quality ensures a long operational life even over very high acreages.

The compact transport dimensions with transport widths of 2.40 m to 2.85 m also contribute to the safe transport on the road.

UX booms: aircraft wing design

Amazone Anhängefeldspritze UX, Gestänge in Transportstellung

• No spray agent from the booms drips on to the tractor. The booms also do not hit the tractor cab.

• Everything shipshape: The boom is located safely without movement in its transport position. The parallelogram suspension dampens shock loads in the field as well as in the transport position. This is pure convenience and, above all, ensures the long service life of the boom.

• Focussing on the substance: the road in front of you. You can concentrate entirely on driving. The visibility in road transport is exemplary. Where the tractor can get through then the trailed sprayer can also pass. No protruding parts, no boom damage. 50 km/h no problem!

Maintenance-free and with a long service life

Anhängespritze UX

The decades of experience in boom design pay off: The conical hinge pin is the intelligent centre of a well thought-out boom philosophy! The boom pivots self-adjust against any play on the conical hinge pins and that ensures for the user an optimised boom function even after many years.

The standard use of stainless steel, the automotive-industry standard, cathodic dip painting process and the targeted use of plastics and aluminium are the perfect guarantee of a long service life.

Exclusively from AMAZONE: All hydraulic connectors are always made from stainless steel!

High-quality, multi-layer paint

Super-L2 boom

UX Super-L2-Gestänge

Superbly narrow transport width of just 2.40 m on all three-fold Super-L2 booms with working widths of 21, 24, 27 and 28 m. Amazing transport width of only 2.60 m on all four-fold Super-L2 booms with working widths of 27, 28, 30, 32, 33, 36, 39 and 40 m (UX 6200: 2.80 m).

The Super-L2 boom is automatically folded fully in or out via oversized hydraulic rams. The booms fold laterally along the sides of the spray agent tank. The boom is fixed safely, without movement, on the transport locking device with any shock loads being absorbed via the parallelogram suspension even in the transport position. The multiple-folded steel profiles of up to 220 mm make the Super-L2 boom superbly robust.

As standard the Super-L2 booms are equipped with:

Amazone Anhängefeldspritze UX, Super-L-Gestänge

• an over-long central pendulum for the parallel guidance of larger booms,
• combined spring and damping elements for shock-dampening the suspension against vertical forces,
• a large dimensioned integrated damping system consisting of brake plates and buffer blocks to damp down horizontal yaw movements and
• spring plates to damp down movement in direction of travel (only four-fold booms).

AMAZONE booms – an idea gets its way

Drive safely!
The visibility in road transport is exemplary. Anywhere the tractor can go, the sprayer with its narrow booms goes as well. No protruding parts, no boom damage, minimal transport width.

Everything shipshape!
The boom locates safely in the transport hooks. No rattling, no wear susceptible boom thar rests on the tractor. Travelling fast is not a problem.

Clean working!
No spray agent from the booms drips on to the tractor or on the operator station and the booms also do not hit the tractor cab.

AMAZONE booms – Smooth and precise as standard

Gestängeführung

Thanks to the central pendulum suspension, the AMAZONE Super-S2 and the Super L-2 booms are optimally guided above the target. In addition, the combined spring and damping elements provide an enormous reduction in any potential vertical movement. Also the horizontal pivoting movements are kept at a minimum by the integrated damping system so that, for all AMAZONE booms, optimum work results are achieved.

AMAZONE booms feature as standard:
• an elongated, central pendulum for optimum parallel guidance,
• combined spring and damping elements for shock-dampening the suspension against vertical forces,
• an integrated dampening system with brake plates and buffer blocks to damp the horizontal pivoting movements.

Super-L2 booms additionally feature
• Spring slide plates to damp the movement in the direction of travel (only on 4-section booms)

1) AMAZONE booms ensure that smooth, vertical boom ride
2) AMAZONE booms achieve a smooth horizontal boom ride

Electrically-controlled TG valve chest

UF02 Teilbreitenarmatur

For either ISOBUS control or AmaSpray+, the TG part-width valve chest is available. The part-width boom sections are switched, on and off, quickly and drip-free via electric motor valves with pressure relief.

In all situations the spray rate is exactly and quickly controlled directly via the computer and so negating the need for any mechanical equal pressure control.

Less drift also at higher wind speeds

Amazone Anhängefeldspritze UX, Abdrift

With the air-assisted injector nozzles, crop protection agents can be applied with very little drift. They are universally usable in all crops and all classifications. Because of the coarse droplet application, these nozzles can also be used in higher wind speeds.

AMAZONE offers a wide range of nozzles from agrotop, Lechler and TeeJet.

Single and multi-nozzle bodies

Anhängespritze UX, Einfach- und Mehrfach-Düsenkörper

The nozzle bodies with integrated diaphragm non-return anti-drip valves fit up into the boom profiles reliably preventing any dripping at the nozzle. Self-adjusting bayonet fixings ensure a tool-less quick nozzle change. The 3-fold or 4-fold nozzle bodies are suited to frequent nozzle changes due to different applications and crops. Nozzle protection tubes, as standard on the outer sections, or, if desired, over the entire boom working width, ensures protection for long injector nozzles and multiple nozzle bodies.

Injector nozzles (ID, TTI) have a relatively coarse droplet spectrum and are particularly versatile with regard to their field of application. A pressure range of 2 to 8 bar is possible.

If coverage quality is at the foreground of the application, the use of standard or anti-drift fine droplet nozzles, such as XR or AD, is recommended. Special care is required here due to the tendency to drift above 3 bar.

A good compromise is provided by the modern ID-K or Airmix compact injector nozzles. These have relatively little drift, but do not have too coarse a droplet spectrum and are operated at 2 to 4 bar.

When it comes to special coverage qualities the double flat fan nozzle is an interesting alternative: the AVI Twin from Agrotop also produces droplets that are not too fine.

The split spray pattern ensures a more even deposit on the front and back of the plant and makes sense maybe, for example, in ear treatment.

For speeds greater than 10 km/h, the TD HiSpeed nozzle with its asymmetrical spraying angle is becoming a new industry trend.
