Excellent cutting performance

PH1500_Detail_1a

Compared with either rotary or cylinder mowers, the Profihopper, as a fine flail mower operates reliably, thanks to its design, even at noticeable higher cutting heights. Both in short and long grass, the Profihopper provides a superb cutting performance.

Mowing – no matter whether damp or dry

PH1500_Detail_2

The Profihopper does a superb job in nearly all climatic or vegetative conditions. Its well-proven AMAZONE mowing and scarifying system is the guarantor for well-groomed lawns. Whether the sun is shining or the early morning dew is still on the grass – work can begin. The Profihopper is not bothered whether the grass is wet, exceptionally tall or even thick – and it always achieves first class results.

Mulching – returning important nutrients

Through the special mounting of the knives on the big diameter rotor, the grass-stalks are cut off and then shredded many times. For mulching, the mulch flap is just inserted into the Profihopper and the cuttings are spread evenly across the mown area. Important nutrients are consequently then fed back into the soil.

Scarifying – improves the soil structure

PH1500_Detail_4

The AMAZONE Profihopper is also a superb scarifyer. The scarifying knives, which are quickly attached without tools, slit the turf and thin out the lawn’s surface. Thatch is removed, collected and at the same time the soil is rolled. And so, due to the scarifying, the improved light, air, water and nutrient exchange results in a significant improvement in the soil structure.

Collecting leaves

Thanks to the superb suction effect almost “everything” (leaves, chestnuts, acorns, etc. ...) is collected and the hopper capacity is optimised. In addition, the chopping up of the leaves by the rotating blades speeds up their decomposition. To improve and aid that grass growth, those leaves can be collected and the lawn aired in a single pass by simply adding the scarifying blades.

Rubbish and Paddock collection – Clean up

PH1500_Detail_6

The conveying system is not sensitive to foreign objects, so the collection of tins, paper and other rubbish lying around in parks and leisure areas, is no problem for the Profihopper.

Paddock Maintenance – Your horses will thank you

Healthy animals thanks to clean paddocks. The Profihopper mows patches of rank grass and the droppings are reliably collected.

 

Safe on any terrain

PH1500_Detail_6a

With the Profihopper 1500 SmartLine, the rotational speed of each of the four driven wheels is controlled in relation to the steering wheel position and the forward speed so that the machine does not require any differential locks. Not only when going round bends, but also especially on slopes and in wet conditions, the system shows its full strength.

Intelligent 4WDi all-wheel drive

PH1500_Detail_7

4WDi technology
The preconditions for the intelligent all-wheel drive are the efficient, electro-hydraulically actuated hydraulic motors, which, thanks to the electronic monitoring of the wheels, ensures the optimum driven speed. The Profihopper switches on the drive to the steered rear wheels only when the front wheels need this assistance. So, only all-wheel drive when necessary. Thanks to this intelligent drive system, considerable fuel is saved during normal operation! The system functions both when going forwards or backwards.

Benefits of the 4WDi technology
• True 0-turning circle steering
• Increased safety at maximum steering lock
• Also for difficult applications, such as, for instance, in cases of slippage on wet ground or in sloping terrain
• All-wheel drive only when necessary reduces the fuel consumption and saves the environment
• The drive of the Profihopper is carried out via one hydraulic motor per wheel

True 0-turning circle steering

PH1500_Detail_8

The rotational speed of the front wheels is controlled in relation to the position of the steered rear wheels so that the vehicle can turn on the spot around one of its front wheels. This increased manoeuvrability applies under all conditions, especially on slopes, and ensures a more efficient operation.

PowerCompactor with SmartCut:

PowerCompactor mit SmartCut

• 1.50 metres working width
• 88 (44 pairs) sharpened wing blades, arranged in 4 rows
• Rotor speed 3,400 rpm.

PowerCompactor: extended and reliable operation without emptying!

With the PowerCompactor, the Profihopper enters a new class in efficiency. The PowerCompactor features a conveyor auger system consisting of longitudinal and cross conveyor augers, giving the Profihopper, in comparison with other mowers, a higher collection capacity and thus quicker forward speeds, even in tall grass.

Immediately after collection, the cuttings are compressed via the auger conveyor system and collected in the hopper. Thanks to this packing action, 1,600 l of uncompressed cuttings can be fitted into the 1,100 l collection hopper. This principle increases the hopper capacity by almost 50 %. So, compared with a usual mower, the hopper capacity of the Profihopper is approximately 1,600 l. Time losses due to hopper emptying are reduced immediately by 50 % and simultaneously the efficiency of both machine and manpower is increased.

Benefits of the PowerCompactor
• The high conveyor volume ensures maximum mowing capacities with operational speeds of up to 10 km/h
• Extreme compaction of the hopper capacity by approximately 50 % to the equivalent of 1,600 litres of cuttings
• Automated engine management means a comfortable working environment
• Optimised fuel consumption by the perfect teamwork of engine capacity and forward speed

SmartCut exact cut rotor
The outstanding feature of the rotor is the specific chevron mounting arrangement of the blades resulting in an improved performance both when cutting and collecting; and at a reduced noise level. For this innovation, AMAZONE was awarded a Silver Medal by the Innovations Jury at Demopark 2013.

Benefits of the SmartCut exact cutting rotor
• Precise and clean cutting in one pass
• Improved collection quality
• Reduced noise emission
• Simple and quick blade exchange
• Good for the operator and the environment: The delivery system does not require any air assistance and in this way operates at low noise levels and is virtually dust-free.

Maximum robustness

PH1500_Detail_11

The strong frame and the robust design of all the mechanical and hydraulic components ensure the superb reliability of the Profihopper.

State-of-the-art motor technology – already today standard of the future

PH1500_Detail_12

The use of quality components, such as, for instance, the 34 KW (45.6 HP) diesel engine from Yanmar, characterises the professional quality of the machine. The engine offers full power at 2,800 revs/min and delivers 140 Nm at 1,800 revs/min. Thanks to the modern exhaust gas after-treatment with recirculation and particle filter, no DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) is required.

50 l fuel tank – for those long, long days

The large 50 l fuel tank ensures operation without interruption, even when operating over long working days.

AMAZONE Cooling-System – The clever cooling system

PH1500_Detail_14

The AMAZONE Profihopper is fitted as standard with a self-cleaning coolant system (AMAZONE Cooling-System), that removes the contamination from the radiator grill of any plant residues that collect there, this is especially important when mulching.

The high-lift discharge – safe, comfortable and far back

PH1500_Detail_15

The design of the collection hopper permits the discharge at a height of 2.50 m. The point of delivery has been positioned far to the rear so that even high-sided containers can be filled as well as possible.

Drinks and storage compartment – little nuances that make the difference

PH1500_Detail_18

Valuable equipment features of the machine, well-thought through down to the detail, such as, for instance the drinks holder or the storage compartment within reach make any job a joy.

Documentation of application – valuable and useful

PH1500_Detail_19

The use of state-of-the-art electronics allows the logging and documentation of important job information, such as for instance times of mowing, area outputs, fuel consumption or times emptied. Via the information display in the driver’s field of view, all the useful information with regard to work rates and levels of efficiency for the machine are displayed.

Blade change – simple, quick and safe!

PH1500_Detail_20

Different blades are available for individual applications.

The blades are made from special treated steel to ensure a low wear rate. In addition, the blade system is resistant to foreign obstacles because each blade is independently suspended.

 

Superb working quality at cutting heights of 0 – 90 mm

PH1500_Detail_21

The cutting height adjustment is done very comfortably and quickly. Via the operating tool, positioned on the mower unit, the cutting height can be variably adjusted from 0 – 90 mm whereby the entire mowing unit is swung so that no deeper positioned parts affect the quality of work.

Folding roll bar

PH1500_Detail_22

The folding roll bar via which the transport height can be reduced very easily and quickly is also very useful.
