UF mounted sprayer: now also in a 30 m boom width
As a further expansion to the UF mounted sprayer range, Amazone now also offers the Super-S2 boom in a 30 m boom width. In spite of its large working width, the transport width remains at only 2.4 m and the transport height just 3.05 m.
Thanks to the unique Amazone profile design, with its multi-folded boom sec-tions in either steel or aluminium, the new boom maintains that overall light-ness but, at the same time, is still extremely robust. With boom fold reduction possibilities down to 24 m, 18 m and 13 m it provides that very flexible utilisa-tion in 30 m, 24 m, 18 m and 12 m tramline systems.
With its large working width, the new Super-S2 boom is ideally suited to exploit the full capacity potential of the UF mounted sprayer in combination with the FT front tank. With a nominal tank volume of 2,800 litres maximum, this front tank combination is as efficient as either a trailed sprayer or a self-propelled machine of the same fill volume. Especially when working in smaller, awkward shaped fields, it turns out to be significantly more manoeuvrable than a trailed sprayer. In addition, traction and the ability of the tractor to stay in the track are clearly better when operating a sprayer on slopes. In the 3,000 litre self-propelled sprayer class, however, this front tank combination is, especially with regard to the investment cost, a real alternative.
