Spreader with Isobus controls

Amazonen-Werke has expanded its ZA-TS series by additional models. The spreader comes in a modular design with hopper capacities between 1700 and 4200 liter and Isobus technology.

THE ZA-TS SERIES ARE LARGE AREA SPREADERS for working widths of 18 m to 54 m. They are equipped with a precision spreader unit with integrated AutoTS border spreading device. The Auto-TS border spreading functions provides an accurate trajectory of the spread pattern resulting in optimum growth conditions right up to the field's border. All spreaders of the series are equipped with a 700 liter, deep pressed base hopper without corners, edges and weld seams. This design enables a continuous and even flow of fertilizer and at the same time facilitates emptying of any hopper residues and the cleaning of the spreader. The models are identified by their hopper extension sizes and the frame strength.

All spreaders feature Isobus control technology. Thanks to Isobus, they can be operated both with the Amatron 3, CCI 100 and Amapad terminals or any other Isobus terminal. In future, the spreaders can also be ordered if desired with or without a weighing system. In addition, the weigh-cell spreaders can be equipped with a tilt sensor.

In addition to the differing frames - Super and Ultra - the modular program includes six hopper extensions. For 1700 and 2000 liter spreaders, narrow extensions with a filling width of 2,22 m are available. Wider extensions with a 2,71 m filling width are used for spreaders with all-up volumes of 2200, 2700, 3200, and 4200 liter. The Super version with its optimized center of gravity, a payload of 3200 kg, and spreading widths of up to 36 m offers the combination of hopper extensions from 1700 to 3200 liter. The stronger Ultra, with its payload of 4500 kg, goes up to spreading widths of 54 m, however, it can be equipped with a choice of four hopper extensions ranging from 2200 to 4200 liter.

Boundary spreading system

All models are equipped with the TS spreading system made from stainless steel with its disc integrated Auto-TS boundary spreading system. With this boundary spreading system, which the driver can switch on and off during the spreading operation, the fertilizer is spread right up to the field's border. According to the manufacturer, this enables a degree of accuracy in its lateral distribution that has never been seen before. This results in higher yields around the edges of the field, compared with existing boundary spreading systems.

All models are available in either Tronic or Hydro versions. Whilst Tronic means mechanical drive to the spreading discs with an eight section part-width section control via spread rate adaptation, the hydraulically-driven spreading discs on the Hydro version enable an eight section part-width section control via both quantity and speed reduction of the spreading discs. Both versions are also able to be equipped with GPS-Switch, the automated part-width section control.

The German company offers the roll-up cover on the spreaders in either manual actuation or the remote opening via hydraulic rams. In addition, and as an alternative to the integrated swivel rolling and parking device, there is also a simple parking stand available.
