Booms | Boom guidance


Boom design to perfection

In hilly terrain and with large working width electric tilt adjustment makes sense. The quick and precise tilting and return of the boom into the neutral position is possible via tractor control valves or the electro hydraulic function of the ISOBUS terminal.  Both Q-plus and the Super-S series AMAZONE booms are JKI recognised and comply to the highest European demands on crop protection implements – compare that with others!

Safe and compact

Exemplary overview in road transport. Where the tractor can pass the Super-S boom can pass as well. No protruding parts, no boom damage. Thanks to the compact design the reduction of the front axle load is smaller than at a plough of the same weight.

More than just the solid core: Profiles made from high tensile steel

That what has been taken away from the boom’s weight is returned in efficiency. The clever lightweight design makes use of the material where it makes sense. For instance, aluminium for weight reduction at the outer boom sections of the Super-S2 boom, but not however, in the middle of the boom. There, high tensile steel is necessary so that the boom is kept rigid and in line and so spray errors due to vibration are prevented.

3-fold shock absorbed suspension for the most arduous operational conditions

As standard all AMAZONE booms are equipped with • springs and shock absorber pack for damping the vertical roll movements • rubber buffer damping elements with ball suspension to damp down the horizontal yaw movements • tension springs for the shock absorbed suspension of the entire boom As standard also is hydraulic height adjustment and guide skids that results in the perfect boom guidance and thus, the accurate longitudinal and lateral distribution of the spray agent.

Superbly strong yet at the same time superbly light

Due to the special profile design AMAZONE sprayer booms are superbly strong yet at the same time superbly light. 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. For all application ranges and application rates the right nozzlesx are available, e.g. for the optimum coverage, for anti-drift or for liquid fertilising.

Maintenance-free and with a long service life

The decades of experience in boom design pay off: The conical hinge pin is the intelligent centre of a well thoughtout 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!

Q-plus boom - 12 - 12.5 - 15 metres

The hydraulic folding is actuated via over-sized hydraulic rams. Included as standard: Hydraulic height adjustment, 3-fold shock absorbing suspension system and one sided, independent folding on the left hand side as viewed in direction of travel. 80 mm wide profiles provide excellent rigidity. The Q-plus boom can immediately be folded out at half height. Folding in is possible in any desired height. Two control valves are required: - One single acting control valve for height adjustment - One double acting valve for folding in/out - One double acting control valve for hydraulic tilt adjustment (option) Q-plus boom with automatic locking and unlocking: The functions of boom folding and tilt adjustment can also be actuated via one tractor control valve with an optional electric changeover unit. Also the manual folding out of the Q-plus boom is possible. The manual folding is actuated via powerful tensioning and pressure springs without locking catches.

One-sided folding of the Q-Plus boom

As standard the Q-Plus boom can be independently folded in to the one side only which is the left hand side when viewed in direction of travel As an option, the Q-Plus boom can be equipped with pre-select folding enabling the independent folding of both the left and right hand side individually. The pre-selection of these hydraulic functions is carried out electrically via AMASET+, AMASPRAY+ or the ISOBUS terminal. When the boom is unfolded and in the working position, the boom that needs to stay folded out is then pre-selected on the control box.

Super-S1 boom - 15 – 18 – 21 metres

The highly-successful, vertically folding Super-S2 boom, in working widths from 15 to 30 m, is now supplemented by the new, more cost-effective Super-S1 boom. The new Super-S1 boom is available in working widths of 15 m, 18 m and 21 m. The new boom section layout results in less hinge points allowing for a quicker folding process. Of course the usual robust profile design is maintained on these variants as well. Despite the individual sections of the Super-S1 boom being 50 cm longer in comparison to the usual Super-S2 boom, the transport height still is below 4 m. The compact transport width of 2.4 m is also maintained. Due to the new layout of the boom sections, the machine’s centre of gravity is closer to the tractor, allowing the use of smaller crop husbandry tractors. The Super-S1 boom in working widths of 18 and 21 m can be reduced to 15 m just by folding in the outer boom segment, thus providing more flexibility for farm overlapping applications and in regions with small fields.

Super-S2 boom - 15 - 16 - 18 - 20 - 21 - 24 - 27 - 28 metres

The Super-S2 boom folds fully automatically in and out via hydraulic rams. In the transport position, the boom sits compactly behind the tank with a transport width of only 2.40 m and a transport height of 2.95 m with a standard tractor. The multiple-folded steel profiles of up to 140 mm wide make the Super-S2 boom simultaneously extremely robust and extremely light. The 3-fold shock absorbing boom suspension system, the hydraulic height adjustment and the elastic height skids ensure the perfect guidance of the Super-S2 boom with the right distance above the target surface.

LED individual nozzle lighting

Professional work lighting is today the basis of a flexible, output-increasing solution to operating in twilight and at night. LED individual nozzle lighting picks out each individual spray fan. An absolutely immediate assessment of their operation down to the very last nozzle on the boom can be made.

LED boom lighting for Super-S booms

For flexible and efficient operation at twilight and in the dark, LED boom lighting is available. Two far-reaching LED work lights, mounted in the middle of the boom, ensure excellent visibility of all the nozzles at a glance.

WindControl - Calm conditions at the touch of a button

The effect of the wind on the spread pattern can be permanently monitored and automatically compensated for by WindControl. A high-frequency wind sensor mounted on the machine records both the wind speed and the wind direction and transmits this information to the job computer.
