Booms | Boom guidance

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

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

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 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!

Simultaneously superbly robust and superbly light

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

• 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!

Super-L2 boom

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:

• 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).

AutoLift – the automatic comfortable headland system

When the sprayer is switched off whilst turning on the headland, the boom is raised automatically and when the sprayer is switched back on, the boom returns down to its working height. This reduces the risk of damage to the boom while turning on the headland.

Profi-fold 1

All the hydraulic functions can be carried out safely and simply via the ISOBUS terminal in the tractor cab. The multi- function joystick makes handling especially comfortable. The following functions are possible: Height adjustment, fold out and in, independent one-sided folding at a reduced forward speed (max. 6 km/h), boom width reduction, tilt adjustment.

Profi-fold 2

In addition to the functions of Profi-fold 1, Profi-fold 2 enables both independent folding and individual angling of the boom tips.

DistanceControl with 2 sensors or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors

As an option for Super-L2 and Super-S2 booms, AMAZONE offers for the UX trailed sprayer the fully automatic DistanceControl boom guidance system with either 2 sensors or, for DistanceControl plus, 4 sensors. In heavily differing crop heights, or in areas with partially lodged corn, it could be that the boom, when equipped with 2 sensors, dips into the crop. In this case equipping the boom with four sensors will prevent this. The sensors are electrically connected in parallel and so it is always the sensor that is closest to the target surface that is actuated. Benefits of the DistanceControl boom guidance: • Fully automatic boom guidance including height guidance, tilt adjustment and boom lifting on the headland • Automatic boom angling (in combination with Profi-fold 2 or Flex-fold 2)

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 work lights

Boom lighting is provided by two LED work lights mounted in the centre of the boom and, from here, due to their wide- reaching illumination; prove to be a particularly effective execution. Two further LED work lights to give additional background lighting can be mounted up on the platform.

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.
