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.

The complete shutter slide assembly underneath the outlet opening can be adjusted via individual setting levers for each side of the spreader. The position of the shutter slide assembly is fixed via an additional clamping lever. The special feature of this model and 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 required
  • 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 – with the machine-specific EasySet 2 in-cab terminal

Convenient electric adjustment and control
The EasySet 2 in-cab terminal provides the option for automatic spread rate regulation at varying forward speeds. In this respect, the size of the apertures are adjusted by automatically setting the shutter position in such a way that the application rate always remains the same. All that is needed is a 12 V power connection for the in-cab terminal. The operator has the option of using an X-sensor (pulse counting), a signal cable (transmission of the tractor speed) or a GPS antenna to transmit the speed signal.

In conjunction with electrical shutter actuation, EasySet 2 has the advantage that the application rate can be adjusted in very small steps. The desired application rate is simply entered into the in-cab terminal to the exact kilogram and this can be easily increased or reduced from the cab to both sides, or to either side, during the spreading operation.

To operate the Limiter V+, the desired working height for the relevant setting is initially pre-selected using the “+/-” keys on the in-cab terminal. The system is activated via the designated Limiter button. Any changes to the Limiter function, for instance when moving from field side to border or water course spreading, are also made using the “+/-” keys. If the situation requires it, e.g. during water course spreading, the spread rate can also be reduced towards the edge of the field. 

Machine control is rounded off by a convenient function for semi-automatic rate calibration and the emptying of any fertiliser residues.


The benefits

  • Forward-speed dependent application rate regulation 
  • Comfortable electrical operation and adjustment of the application rate from the tractor cab 
  • Simple in-cab terminal without menus, only direct function keys 
  • Integrated hectare meter with total area counter 
  • Border spreading via Limiter V+ with remotely controlled spread rate reduction

ZA-V Profis Control – With the machine-specific AmaSpread 2 in-cab terminal

Modern design meets intuitive operation 
With AmaSpread 2, AMAZONE offers an intuitive terminal for the ZA-V Profis Control weigh cell spreader. The simple operating structure combined with the high-contrast 4.3 inch colour display guarantees high levels of operator comfort. All the important functions such as the application rate and the position of the border spreading device can be actuated directly and comfortably using a back-lit button. This means that one-hand operation during spreading is not a problem.

Material-specific settings for up to ten different fertilisers can be stored and recalled at any time. In addition, the spread rate, covered area and working time are stored and can be utilised by the operator for easy documentation.

Apart from the forward-speed-related spread rate regulation, AmaSpread 2 also allows manual switching of up to six part-width sections and the use of the Profis weighing system. In addition, rapid adaptation of the fertiliser rate enables the timely reaction to field conditions. The terminal also offers precise spread rate regulation, thanks to the 200 Hz weighing system. 

When using the Limiter V+ border spreading device, the operator can switch between side, boundary or water-course spreading, depending on the border situation, without leaving the tractor cab. Optional low level sensors give the operator an early notification of an upcoming emptying of the hopper via the AmaSpread 2. The functions of the terminal are rounded off by the integration of work lights.


The benefits

  • Forward-speed dependent application rate regulation 
  • Integration of weighing functions for precise quantity control 
  • Comfortable electrical operation and adjustment of the application rate from the tractor cab 
  • Switching of up to six part-width sections 
  • Automatic positioning of the Limiter combined with spread rate reduction for side, border and water course spreading 
  • Simple operation without detailed menu guidance

ZA-V mounted spreaders with ISOBUS

ZA-V Tronic | ZA-V Profis Tronic | ZA-V Profis Hydro 

The complete functional scope of the ISOBUS world
The ZA-V mounted spreader range is rounded off with the even more advanced ZA-V Tronic, ZA-V Profis Tronic and ZA-V Profis Hydro mounted spreaders. ISOBUS communication is integrated in these models by default.

Thanks to the quantity-effect-free aperture and the consistent, triangular-shaped spread pattern from the ZA-V’s spreading unit, excellent results can be achieved through part-width section control via spread rate adaptation when spreading in short work and in wedge-shaped fields.

The mechanically-driven ZA-V Tronic offers eight-fold part-width section control as standard. The hydraulic spreading disc drive of the ZA-V Profis Hydro also allows the combination of spread rate adaptation and spreading disc speed. This enables even more precise spreading in wedge-shaped fields. Up to 16 part-width sections are possible in combination with Section Control.

The Profis spreaders feature forward-speed-related rate regulation and a state-of-the-art 200-Hz weighing system with two weigh cells. As option for the ZA-V Profis Tronic and ZA-V Profis Hydro, a tilt sensor is also available which continually ensures a precise weight, even in hilly terrain.

For the comfortable side, border and water course spreading, the Limiter V+ can be operated through any ISOBUS terminal. The material-specific, final settings for the respective border situation are conveniently stored in the fertiliser menu.


The benefits 

  • Convenient operation with a wide variety of ISOBUS terminals 
  • Integration into the tractor operation 
  • Settings made easy – optional Bluetooth connection of the mySpreader App 
  • GPS-Switch automatic part-width section control 
  • Use of application maps with GPS-Maps&Doc 
  • Job-related documentation in the Task Controller

ISOBUS as the basis for intelligent communication

One language, many benefits!

Each ISOBUS-enabled machine from AMAZONE comes with the latest technology and almost unlimited possibilities. It makes no difference whether you use an operator terminal from AMAZONE or an ISOBUS terminal fitted directly in the tractor. ISOBUS is an internationally recognised standard for communication between the operator terminal, tractors and connected implements on the one hand and Farm Management Information Systems on the other.


Operation with a wide variety of ISOBUS terminals

Which means that ISOBUS enables you to take control of all your ISOBUS compatible equipment. You only have to connect the machine to the respective ISOBUS terminal and the usual operator interface appears on the monitor in your tractor cab.


Benefits of ISOBUS at a glance: 

  • This worldwide standard provides a uniform interface and data exchange format that ensures compatibility even with third party manufacturers 
  • Plug and Play between machine, tractor and additional ISOBUS implements

Benefits of automatic part-width section control:

  • Stress relief on the driver
  • Increase in precision especially at night or at higher speeds
  • Fewer overlaps and gaps
  • Saving on input costs
  • Less crop damage and less environmental pollution

1. Overlap zones
