Spreading disc drive | Spreading system


Stainless steel spreading system

Outstanding machines made from outstanding materials

The entire spreading system of the ZA-M spreaders is made from stainless steel:

  • the hopper tips and agitator spirals
  • the entire base plates with setting rate slides and hydraulic shutters
  • the spreading discs with the spreading vanes
  • the fully enclosed deflector plates

SBS – Soft Ballistic System

Perfect “teamwork” of:

  • Agitator
  • Hopper tip
  • Base plates
  • Double shutters
  • Spreading discs and deflector plates

The benefits:

  • Easy to maintain due to open design of spreader
  • Perfect functionality due to the maintenance-free, oil-immersed gearboxes, stainless steel chain drive for agitator shaft, hydraulic cylinders and robust frame

Oil-immersed gearboxes

Decades of reliability 
The oil-immersed gearbox has proven to be the indestructible heart of the AMAZONE twin disc fertiliser spreader. These AMAZONE gearboxes have proven themselves 100,000 times and more. They are maintenance-free and offer integrated overload protection against gearbox damage.

Perfect production:  active protection for the environment right from the start

  • Energy saving due to optimised manufacturing processes in large batches 
  • Best possible use of raw materials due to CNC processor-controlled cutting and bending technology 
  • Modern electrophoretic dipping procedure for top quality corrosion protection (car standard)

Adjusting the spread rate: simple – reliable – precise

Tool-less setting of the spread rate

The spread rate and the working width are preselected from the extremely comprehensive setting chart. Clear, easy to read scales help you to set the spread rate exactly using the shutter slide. The settings can be made either manually to the rear or via an operator terminal.

By being able to open and close the shutter slides individually, the desired quantity of fertiliser required for each side can be applied via the spreading disc.

The checking the spread rate is extremely easy using the calibration kit for determining the material characteristics (flow behaviour etc.).

Adjusting the working width

User-friendly in every detail

The OmniaSet spreading discs are equipped with pivoting spreading vanes that generate a spread pattern that is extremely precise and safe. With the aid of an easily readable scale in the user’s field of view, the spreading vanes can be adjusted easily and exactly without tools. AMAZONE provides comprehensive setting charts for all kinds of fertiliser, seed and slug pellets. The OmniaSet spreading discs are made from stainless steel and are easy to take on and off.

Late top dressing is advantageous for generating quality crops. This is extremely easy to do with AMAZONE spreading discs – the standard swivel tips on the spreading vanes just have to be folded up.

The concept: Gentle fertiliser treatment means more precision

Gentle guidance
The AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System utilises the agitators which are shaped in such a way that the fertiliser is taken from across the whole width of the hopper. This prevents the formation of a fertiliser funnel in the centre of the hopper.

Sanfte Führung

Gentle delivery:
The delivery of the fertiliser directly onto the centre of the spreading disc is especially advantageous because of the low peripheral speed of the spreading discs in this sector.

Sanfte Aufgabe

Gentle acceleration
The AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System gently accelerates the fertiliser via the spreading discs rotating at 720 rpm. making sure that even very fragile fertilisers keep their spreading properties.

Gentle ejection:
With the aid of the AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System, the fertiliser is only provided with the energy required for the optimum trajectory and a precise spread pattern.

Safety as standard
Mineral fertilisers require particularly gentle treatment to ensure precise distribution and transport out to the crop over the total working width. Fertiliser which has been already damaged by the spreader can no longer be spread evenly. The AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System is already integrated as standard in the ZA-M mounted spreaders as a safety "package". The agitator, shutter slides and spreading discs are all optimally matched. This protects the fertiliser and ensures that yields are maintained.

Spread pattern simulator

The spread pattern simulator gives an intuitive introduction to how a fertiliser spreader works. Optimal settings for a variety of combinations of fertilisers and working widths can be clearly displayed and the influence that wind and fertiliser quality have also shown. Try it for yourself…

Precision in mineral fertiliser application

Amazone offers ever more efficient and precise machines and processes, so that the agricultural sector can retain its competitiveness and future viability and operate more sustainably at the same time.

SmartLearning - EasyCheck

Precise spreading made easy – a digital, mobile test kit for the easy optimisation of the lateral distribution. Instead of using the test trays, as with the normal mobile test kit, the EasyCheck system consists of just 16 lightweight rubber mats and the EasyCheck App for smartphones.
