Soil care and innovation behind new model deep ripper
A new series of spreaders with a range of hopper sizes and configurations from 1700 to 4200 litres will be displayed this year at the Henty Machinery Field Days.
CLAAS Harvest Centre, Wagga, will feature the AMAZONE ZA-V linkage-mounted spreaders, delivering all the precision and innovation found in the ZA-TS series but in a more everyday size.
Branch manager Geoff Anderson said the ZA-V builds on more than 50 years of leadership in twin-disc centrifugal spreading technology.
“AMAZONE is the undisputed world leader in spreading technology,’’ Mr Anderson said.
“Its tried and tested ZA technology has been used in more than one million spreaders since 1958.’’
AMAZONE’s proven soft ballistic pro technology ensures all components of the agitation, metering and spreading system are optimally matched to protect the integrity of fertiliser granules.
With a maximum discharge rate of 6.4 kg/second, a working width of 36m and operational speeds of up to 30km/h, the ZA-V delivers top-end spreading performance.
Three sets of quick-change discs achieve a perfect three-dimensional spreading pattern from 10 to 21m, 21 to 28m and 27 to 36m.
An optional tilt sensor monitors and adjusts the spreading pattern in undulating conditions.
Other options include low-level sensors, which send a warning message to the terminal once pre-set minimum fill levels have been reached.
All AMAZONE controllers can be equipped with the optional GPS-Switch section control, GPS-Track guidance and GPS-Maps variable rate technology.
A complete range of AMAZONE cultivation, drilling, spraying and spreading technology will be on display at the CLAAS Harvest Centre display at the Henty Machinery Field Days.
