Boom | Boom guidance


Booms in an aircraft wing design

Both 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 36 metres allow the optimised matching of the sprayer to the structure of the farm. The exceptionally high-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.

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 comfort and, above all, ensures the long service life of the boom.

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

Focusing on the essentials: 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.

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 end 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.

Super-S2 boom

Superbly compact on the road

Superbly narrow transport width of just 2.40 m on all Super-S2 booms: 15 – 18 – 20 – 21 – 24 – 27 – 28 m.

The Super-S2 boom folds fully automatically in and out via powerful hydraulic rams. The boom sits super-compactly behind the basic machine with a transport width of only 2.40 m in the transport position. 

The multiple-folded steel profiles with a width of up to 140 mm make the Super-S2 boom extremely robust.

Three important elements for excellent boom guidance

Super-S2 booms come as standard with:

  • central pendulum suspension for the optimum boom guidance on slopes and on level ground,
  • combined spring and damping elements for shock-dampening the suspension against vertical forces,
  • integrated damping system consisting of braking plates and buffer blocks to damp down the horizontal yaw movement.

The shock-absorbing suspension with a hydraulic accumulator in the parallelogram guides the Super-S2 boom at the right height above the target with ease.

Super-S2 boom suspension:

  1. Central pendulum point
  2. Spring damping system for reducing the horizontal swing movement
  3. Boom pendulum lock
  4. Spring damping system for reducing the vertical swing movement
  5. Joint orientated across the direction of travel

AMAZONE booms – an idea becomes reality

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

Everything in its place!
The boom locates safely in the transport hooks. No rattling, no wear susceptible boom that can clash on the tractor. High road speeds are not a problem.

Clean working!
No spray agent dripping from the boom onto the tractor or the operator station, and the boom does not touch the tractor cab.

Super-L2 booms Super-stable, super-light and super-compact

The first-class Super-L booms – smooth-travelling and precise application comes as standard

Thanks to the central pendulum suspension, the Super-L booms are guided with ease, even in their standard execution.

The benefits:

  • a particularly long central pendulum system means parallel guidance of very wide booms
  • combined spring and damping elements for shock-dampening the suspension against vertical forces,
  • integrated damping system consisting of braking plates and buffer blocks to damp down the horizontal yaw movement

Super-L2 booms in boom widths from 21 to 36 metres
A distinctive feature of the Super-L2 booms is the super-narrow transport width even with working widths of up to 36 m.

Pre-select folding

One-sided, independent folding via tractor spool valves is possible with the AmaSpray+ or an ISOBUS terminal.

The high level of flexibility offered by the pre-select folding function enables all boom sections to be folded individually. Both the left and right-hand sides can be folded in separately and independently of each other, in order to adapt to any circumstances in the fields.

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 particularly comfortable.

The following functions are possible:
Height adjustment, folding in and out, independent, one side folding at reduced speeds (max. 6 km/h), boom width reduction, and tilt adjustment.

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

AutoLift (1) AutoLift_Arbeitshoehe_d2_190201

AutoLift – the comfortable automatic headland system

The AutoLift automatic boom lift (standard equipment) lifts the boom to the pre-selected height every time the machine is switched off. It lowers back down again to the target height when the sprayer sections are switched on. This reduces the risk of damage to the boom while turning on the headland.

  • Automatic boom lowering via GPS-Switch
    The GPS-Switch function in the operator terminal can be used to start lowering the boom before it reaches the untreated area. This means that the boom is already at the correct working height when the nozzles come on. The only requirement for this is a field boundary saved in the GPS-Switch and an AMAZONE ISOBUS terminal.

DistanceControl with 2 sensors or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors

AMAZONE offers for Super-L booms, either DistanceControl fully automated boom control with 2 sensors or Distance- Control plus with 4 sensors. If the crop height varies greatly or there are areas with partially lodged corn, the boom could dip into the crop when equipped with 2 sensors. In this case, equipping the boom with 4 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.

The driver is able to concentrate on correctly applying the plant protection agent, whilst the computer optimises the boom guidance!

Benefits of the DistanceControl boom guidance:

  • Fully automatic boom guidance including height guidance, tilt adjustment and boom lifting on the headland
  • Automated bilateral boom angling (in combination with Flex-fold 2)

  1. Ultra-sound sensors
  2. Angle sensors
