Front-Rear duo – A new level of precision

Two in one go

For customers who intend to accurately spread two different mineral fertilisers in just one pass, AMAZONE offers the unique possibility of a front-mounted spreader. Other than when utilising blended fertilisers in one fertiliser spreader, this option allows the optimal setting of each spreader according to the properties of the relevant fertiliser. In this way, the perfect lateral distribution for both fertilisers is achieved. Also spreading with two different application maps is possible.

Comfortable and reliable

To enable the use of a “reversed” fertiliser spreader on the front of the tractor, intelligent software has been employed that reliably mirrors the spreading function, thus allowing for work without a switch in thinking. In this way, even normal, side, border and water course spreading can be actuated on the correct side without any problems. Even the optimum switching points for the automatic on/ off switching on the headland is matched.

The benefits of front-mounting:

  • Possibility to accurately spread two different types of fertiliser in just one pass
  • More capacity from the additional hopper capacity yet with the benefits of a mounted machine – manoeuvrable and speedy
  • Front-mounting is possible with all ZA-V and ZA-TS ISOBUS spreader models

Position indicator for the border spreading systems

For checking the position of the border spreading system from the tractor cab, AMAZONE offers a specific position indicator. Via the mechanical display which is in sight to the front of the fertiliser spreader, the position can be comfortably monitored during the spreading procedure.

Roll-over cover

The roll-over hopper cover, either manually operated or hydraulically actuated from the tractor, is available for all S and L extensions. It safely covers over the hopper access point and ensures, when compactly rolled in, the maximum filling opening. The roll-over cover can also be combined with the S 600 and L 800 extensions.

"The roll-over cover is superb: It has a snug fit, keeps the water out during rain showers and also does not get in the way when open, i.e. rolled up."

Swivel hopper cover

As a cost effective alternative to the roll-over hopper cover, the swivel hopper cover, with large sight windows can be chosen but only for the S extensions.

Swivel rolling and parking device

The swivel rolling and parking device eases both the coupling and the uncoupling of the spreader and for when manoeuvring the spreader off the tractor in the yard. The castor wheels are quickly folded up and out and optimally protected against dirt. They are permanently mounted on the spreader – so no need to search for them between one location and another.

“The robust (and steered at the front) rollers with brakes are swivelled in or out with a bold kick. This is as good as it gets.“

Parking device options

As an alternative to the swivel rolling and parking device, there is also a cheaper parking stand with integrated skids available.

Calibration device

So that spread rate can be conveniently checked without having to remove the spreading disc, a secondary calibration device on the left or right hand side is available.

Ladders that ensure a safe access

For optimum access to the hopper from outside, even on the narrow extensions, a ladder is available which can be fitted to the left and/or right hand side. For the wide L extensions though, ladders are provided to both sides as standard.

"Amazone sets the standard, even for the ladder: The steps (of stainless steel!) are well integrated on both sides and do not protrude."
