ZA-V with hydraulic shutter actuation

If equipped with the hydraulic shutter actuation, AMAZONE offers the simple possibility to operate the shutters via two double-acting hydraulic spool valves on the tractor. As with all ZA-V product models, this version is also equipped with the precision spreading system for working widths from 10 to 36 m and which includes the SBS Soft Ballistic System. It is available in hopper capacities from 1,400 to 4,200 l.

Via individual setting levers for each side of the spreader, the complete shutter slide assembly underneath of the aperture can be adjusted. The position of the shutter slide assembly is fixed via an additional clamping lever. The peculiarity of this model, with its hydraulic shutter slide adjustment, is that the hydraulic cylinder for the shutter slide actuation always opens or closes completely. The position of the setting lever only serves as a fixing for the shutter slide assembly, not as a stop to the shutter slide, and thus is not pressurised. In this way, any unintentional opening or adjustment of the application rate is avoided.


The benefits of the hydraulic shutter slide actuation:

  • No operator terminal necessary
  • Individual hydraulic shutter control of each actuation via two double-acting spool valves
  • Alternatively also with the simple 3-way control unit

ZA-V Easy

Convenient electric adjustment and control

The electrically-actuated EasySet terminal ensures an exceptionally simple and comfortable control of the ZA-V.

With the aid of the EasySet terminal, both the left hand or right hand aperture can be adjusted individually by key pressure independently of one another and they can also be adjusted on the move. This also allows the rate to be individually adapted to the left and right hand side.

For operating the Limiter V+, initially the desired working height for the relevant setting is pre-selected via the “+/-” keys on the in-cab terminal. The activation is done via the specific Limiter button. Any change in the Limiter function, for instance when moving from field side to border or water course spreading, is also done via the “+/-” keys. Depending on the application, such as, for example, during water course spreading, the spread rate can also be reduced in the direction of the edge of the field.

As no hydraulic connections are necessary, the ZA-V Easy can be mounted and dismounted more quickly. So, before commencing operation with the spreader, it is just a 3-pin power supply cable and PTO shaft that have to be first coupled to the tractor.

ZA-V Control und ZA-V Profis Control (1) AMASPREAD_d1_181115

ZA-V Control and ZA-V Profis Control

As standard, the ZA-V Control is equipped with the machine- specific AmaSpread+ in-cab terminal.

All the important functions are controlled directly via the illuminated function keys. These function keys, and the back-lit 5.7" display with its large icons and figures, show all aspects of operation clearly and unmistakably. The simple operating structure and menu guidance for AmaSpread+ ensures a high level of operational comfort.

AmaSpread+ can switch up to 3 part-width sections on each disc to the left or right hand side. The full settings for up to a total of 20 different fertiliser types can be stored and recalled at any time directly from the terminal. With documentation of the worked area, the applied quantity and the time taken, AmaSpread+, in addition, features a job management system of up to 99 jobs.

The ZA-V Profis Control models with AmaSpread+ also feature a forward speed-related spread rate regulation as well as the most up to date 200 Hz weighing system with two weigh cells. As an option, a tilt sensor is also available for the ZA-V Profis Control resulting always in a precise weight monitoring, even in undulating terrain.

In addition, the ZA-V Control offers the option of low level sensors which display a warning message in the terminal individually for the left and right hand hopper tips as soon as the pre-set minimum fill level has been reached.

The Limiter V+ border spreading device is also controlled from the AmaSpread+. In the fertiliser menu, separate pre-set adjustments can be saved for any individual fertiliser type including, for instance, the settings for side, border and water course spreading and these can be accessed directly via the individual function keys on the operator interface. In this way, when using the mechanically-driven ZA-V in conjunction with AmaSpread+, the farmer can now, depending on the border spreading situation, and quite simply at the press of a button, change over from normal spreading to side, border or water course spreading on the move from the tractor seat.

ZA-V Tronic und ZA-V Profis Tronic (1) ZA-V_DSC_0426_d1_181214

ZA-V Tronic and ZA-V Profis Tronic

The mechanically-driven ISOBUS spreader

The mechanically-driven ZA-V Tronic spreader features, as standard, ISOBUS and an 8-fold part-width section control via application rate adjustment.

Due to the spreading unit of the ZA-V with its quantity effect-free aperture and consistent, triangular shaped spread patterns, very good results can be achieved when spreading in short work and in wedge shaped fields. Via the quantity effect free outlet aperture of the ZA-V spreader, the lateral distribution of the fertiliser is always maintained even with varying application rates.

In its Profis Tronic format, the spreader features forward speed related application rate regulation and a state-of-the-art 200 Hz weighing system via two weigh cells. As an option, a tilt sensor is also available for the ZA-V Profis Tronic resulting always in a precise weight monitoring, even in undulating terrain.

For the comfortable side, border and water course spreading, the Limiter V+ can be operated through any ISOBUS terminal.

ZA-V Profis Hydro

ZA-V Profis Hydro

The hydraulically-driven ISOBUS spreader

The ZA-V programme, at the top end, is supplemented with the hydraulically-driven ZA-V Hydro. With the ZA-V Hydro, the “Profis” weighing technology and the ISOBUS communication come as standard.

The hydraulic spreading disc drive enables side, border and water course spreading to either side. The switch-over between these individual functions when spreading on the headland is possible on the move. In case the pre-set disc speed for the accurate spreading on the border is not ideal, it can be adjusted via the terminal on the move. These changes are then automatically stored in the terminal for the relevant border situation.

In addition to the fertiliser-saving, simply interchangeable and adjustable spread pattern on the field’s border, the ZA-V Hydro also provides the benefit that this spreader operates completely independently from the tractor engine speed. This saves fuel.

For spreading in short work and in wedges, the ZA-V Hydro in total can actuate 16 part-width sections in automatic mode via the AMAZONE GPS-Switch section control software or 8 part-width sections in manual mode.

Automatische Teilbreitenschaltung (1) Teilbreitenschaltung

Automatic GPS-Switch part-area shut-off via Section Control

If the terminal is equipped with Section Control functionality, i.e. GPS-Switch part-width section control by AMAZONE, the part-width sections can be switched completely automatically depending on the GPS position. Once a field has been created, the driver can concentrate fully on operating the vehicle in automatic mode, since the part-width sections are switched automatically in wedge shaped fields and on headlands.


Advantages of the automatic part-width section control:

  • Less strain on the driver
  • Increased precision, even at night or at higher speeds
  • Fewer overlaps and misses
  • Saving of resources
  • Less crop damage and reduced environmental impact

1. Overlap zones
2. 8 part-width sections
