AMAZONE - USA
Chassis and drawbar
The weight is distributed on the ground in an optimum manner by the large contact area of the two over-dimensioned 700/50/26.5 tyres, so that the soil is protected. The tractor is attached to the fertiliser tank according to individual requirements, using either a lower link cross shaft, Category 2 to 5, a drawbar eye, or a ball point coupling. The drawbar has additional ballast weights as standard equipment to achieve optimal weight distribution and to improve the traction of the tractor. The drawbar has a hydraulic cylinder fitted as standard for connecting and disconnecting the seed drill and for the horizontal levelling of the machine. The drawbar has a hose rail fitted as standard, where the hydraulic hoses and electrical power connections can be neatly stowed after disconnecting the Cart.
The rear of the FDC sports a lower link cross shaft to which the trailed seed drill can be quickly connected.
The entire combination, consisting of the FDC and the seed drill, is an easily-manoeuvrable unit that allows driving pass on pass, despite its length on the headland.
