The versatile partner in modern crop production!

AMAZONE has developed the FT-P 1502 self-contained front tank based on the successful technology of the UF 02 crop protection sprayers. 

The FT-P 1502 front tank is the ideal partner for any application of liquid products. These include hoes with band sprayers, seed drills with liquid fertiliser equipment and many others. 

Large spray agent tank and high-capacity pump

Hydraulic pump drive, with a safety valve to prevent over-reving and incorrect hose connection to the tractor

The FT-P 1502 front tank with a nominal volume of 1,500 l (actual volume 1,660 l) is equipped with a hydraulically-driven 180 l/min piston diaphragm pump for self-contained use. The oil requirement for operating the pump is 35 l/min. 

Simple, intelligent operation with the SmartCenter

The operator station of the FT-P 1502 front tank is positioned on the left-hand side and is easily accessible. The operator station can be equipped with the familiar Comfort-Pack of the UF 02 as an option. This includes the TwinTerminal 3.0 for operating the suction side, an automatic fill stop for suction filling, fill level dependent, auto-dynamic agitator regulation and remotely controlled, automatic cleaning programs for quick and thorough cleaning. The FT-P 1502 front tank is equipped with a 180 l fresh water tank that enables efficient cleaning.

Folding platform with access step for safe introduction of supplementary products

Safe and precise metering of plant protection agents and other additives is guaranteed by the large induction device under the large easy-to-open dome cover. The additional step on the large folding platform in front of the spray agent tank makes the induction device very easy to reach. The induction device includes a cleaning pistol, a canister rinse nozzle with a dead man’s handle and a removable stainless steel sieve as standard. The taps for operating the cleaning pistol and the canister rinse nozzle are located directly by the dome cover and are easily accessible. In addition, a storage facility is integrated in the operator station on the tank dome.

Gloves and other items can be safely stored in the dust- and splash-proof, lockable storage compartment on the right-hand side. A hand wash tank with an integrated soap dispenser is located directly beside this.

More safety on the road

The front tank is equipped with marker boards and integrated LED front lights as standard for road use. A TÜV-approved certified camera system, LED work lights and additional ballasting are available as options. 

Precise, easy to operate and flexible in use with ISOBUS control

The application rate is controlled and regulated via independent ISOBUS control of the FT-P 1502 front tank. The ISOBUS control regulates the metering depending on the forward speed. Other functions such as automatic part-width section control or part-area, site-specific application can also be implemented. The ISOBUS terminal can also be used for the complete job management and documentation. 

Part-width valve chest interface

A part-width valve chest with 2 to 6 part-width sections can be fixed on to any connected implement. The attached implement can be disconnected via a joining socket on the front of the valve chest leaving the part-width valve chest fixed to the machine. This always remains with the implement when the implement is changed. This means that any attached implements can be changed quickly and easily. The working range of the FT-P 1502 front tank covers an application rate of 5 to 100 l/min at a working pressure of 2.0 to 8.0 bar.
