Additional equipment

FlowCheck for monitoring the shutter apertures

AMAZONE offers the FlowCheck monitoring device for the ZA-TS Hydro series as an inexpensive alternative to FlowControl.

Whereas FlowControl can control and adjust the application rate independently to each side, FlowCheck only detects blockages and when one of the two shutter apertures is running empty. Should a blockage occur, both systems rectify the fault by quickly opening and closing the shutter slide whilst simultaneously reversing the agitator. This means absolute reliability of operation for the farmer.

SafetySet – integrated as standard

The SafetySet, which is fitted as standard equipment ensures improved safety. The outer guard tube fulfils the accident prevention regulations. Large marker boards to the rear and the LED road lighting kit ensure more recognisability in road traffic.

Quick Hitch Adapter

Mounted spreaders with Ultra or Ultra Profis frames for a payload up to 4,500 kg can also be mounted on the tractor using the Quick Hitch quick-coupling system. This involves replacing the 3-point mounting frame by a Quick Hitch Adapter.

Low level sensors

When spreading on slopes, or when border spreading, it can happen that one hopper tip empties quicker than the other. In order to check each outlet apertures individually, AMAZONE therefore additionally offers low level hopper sensors. With a premature emptying of one side, the relevant hopper tip is indicated in red in the operator terminal so that the driver is warned early enough.

The driver receives a warning message early enough when either hopper tip is almost empty.

Halter für GPS-Empfänger (1)GPS-Halter_Duengerstreuer_117534-A001_d0_20221007_d2_221020

Holder for the GPS receiver on the fertiliser spreader

The holder, including a 12 m GPS connecting cable, serves to mount a GPS receiver on the fertiliser spreader instead of on the tractor. The GPS receiver can remain on the spreader if the tractor is changed frequently, such as with machine cooperatives. In use, the GPS receiver is always located clearly above the fertiliser spreader.

Roll-over cover

The roll-over hopper cover, either manually operated or hydraulically actuated from the tractor, is available for all S extensions and L extensions. It safely covers the whole of the hopper access area and ensures, when compactly rolled up, the maximum filling opening. The roll-over hopper cover can also be combined with the bolt-on S 600 and L 800 extensions.

“The roll-over cover is good: It has a snug fit, keeps the water out during rain showers and also does not get in the way when open, i.e. rolled up."
(dlz agrar magazine – Long term test of the ZA-TS "long-throw champion" · 01/2016)

Swivel hopper cover

As a cost-effective alternative to the roll-over hopper cover, the swivel hopper cover, with large sight windows can be chosen but only for the S extensions.

Let there be light – Multiple benefit of the work lights

Spread fan, spreading unit and hopper internal lighting

An optional work light kit is available as a supplement to the standard LED lighting for the ZA-TS mounted spreader.

LED work lights are mounted in the hopper above the spreading discs and at the sides of the spreader. This ensures that the user has an overview of the fill level in the hopper at night, and has adequate lighting for changing the spreading discs and for setting the telescopic blades on the spreading vanes.

The work lights are fully integrated in the software of the fertiliser spreader and can therefore be operated remotely from the tractor cab via the ISOBUS terminal.

The two side-mounted LED work lights provide perfect illumination of the spread fan to the left and right in the dark.

The preset capacity is achieved when the work lights comes on continuously.

Practical users will particularly love the filling aid provided by the work lights and the Profis weighing system. Initial flashing followed by the constant lighting up of the work lights signals that the fill level has been reached. A second person, or the frequent dismounting for checking, are no longer necessary.

Front-Rear duo – A new level of precision

Two in one go

For customers who intend to accurately spread two different mineral fertilisers in just one pass, AMAZONE offers the unique possibility of a front-mounted spreader. Other than when utilising blended fertilisers in one fertiliser spreader, this option allows the optimal setting of each spreader according to the properties of the relevant fertiliser. In this way, the perfect lateral distribution for both fertilisers is achieved. Also spreading with two different application maps is possible.

Comfortable and reliable

To enable the use of a “reversed” fertiliser spreader on the front of the tractor, intelligent software has been employed that reliably mirrors the spreading function, thus allowing for work without a switch in thinking. In this way, even normal, side, border and water course spreading can be actuated on the correct side without any problems. Even the optimum switching points for the automatic on/off switching on the headland is matched.

The benefits of front-mounting:

  • Possibility to accurately spread two different types of fertiliser in just one pass
  • More capacity from the additional hopper capacity yet with the benefits of a mounted machine – manoeuvrable and speedy
  • Front-mounting is possible with all ZA-V and ZA-TS ISOBUS spreader models

Swivel rolling and parking device

The swivel rolling and parking device facilitates the easy mounting on and off the tractor and manoeuvring in the yard. The castor wheels are quickly folded in and out and optimally protected from dirt. They are permanently mounted on the spreader – so no need to search for them between one location and another.

“The robust (and steered at the front) rollers with brakes are swivelled in or out with a bold kick. This is as good as it gets.“
(profi – Practice test “Four fertiliser spreaders in comparison“ · 01/2016)

Parking device with integrated stands

As an alternative to the swivel rolling and parking device, there is also a cheaper parking stand with integrated skid available.

Ladders that ensure a safe access

For optimum access to the hopper from outside, even on the narrow extensions, a ladder is available which can be fitted to the left and/or right hand side. For the wide L extensions though, ladders are provided to both sides as standard.

“Amazone sets the standard, even with the ladder: The steps (of stainless steel!) are well integrated on both sides and do not protrude."
(profi magazine – Practice test “Four fertiliser spreaders in comparison“ · 01/2016)
