Spreading disc drive | Spreading system


Stainless steel spreading system

Outstanding machines made from outstanding materials

The entire spreading system of the ZA-M spreaders is made from stainless steel:

  • the hopper tips and agitator spirals
  • the entire base plates with setting rate slides and hydraulic shutters
  • the spreading discs with the spreading vanes
  • the fully enclosed deflector plates

SBS – Soft Ballistic System

Perfect “teamwork” of:

  • Agitator
  • Hopper tip
  • Base plates
  • Double shutters
  • Spreading discs and deflector plates

The benefits:

  • Easy to maintain due to open design of spreader
  • Perfect functionality due to the maintenance-free, oil-immersed gearboxes, stainless steel chain drive for agitator shaft, hydraulic cylinders and robust frame

The oil-immersed gearbox – tried and tested 100,000 times over

Decades of reliability

The oil-immersed gearbox has proven to be the indestructible heart of the AMAZONE twin disc fertiliser spreader. These AMAZONE gearboxes have proven themselves 100,000 times and more. They are maintenance-free and offer integrated overload protection against gearbox damage.

SBS – Soft Ballistic System: The concept: Gentle fertiliser treatment means more precision

Peace of mind as standard

Mineral fertilisers require particularly gentle treatment to ensure precise distribution and transport out to the crop over the total working width. Fertiliser which has been already damaged by the spreader can no longer be spread evenly.

The AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System is already integrated as standard in the ZA-M mounted spreaders as a safety "package". The agitator, shutter slides and spreading discs are all optimally matched. This protects the fertiliser and ensures that yields are maintained.

Sanfte Führung (1) Sanfte_Fuehrung

Gentle guidance

The AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System is incorporated in the agitators, which are shaped in such a way that the fertiliser is taken from across the whole width of the hopper. This prevents a fertiliser funnel from forming in the middle of the hopper.

Sanfte Aufgabe (1) Sanfte_Aufgabe

Gentle delivery

The delivery of the fertiliser directly onto the centre of the spreading disc is especially advantageous because of the low peripheral speed of the spreading discs in this sector.

Sanfter Schwung (1) Sanfter_Schwung

Gentle acceleration

The AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System gently accelerates the fertiliser via the spreading discs rotating at 720 r.p.m. making sure that even very fragile fertilisers keep their spreading properties.

Sanfter Abwurf (1) Sanfter_Abwurf

Gentle ejection

With the aid of the AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System the fertiliser is provided with the energy required for the optimum trajectory and a precise spread pattern.

Adjusting the spread rate: simple – reliable – precise

Tool-less setting of the spread rate

The spread rate and the working width are preselected from the extremely comprehensive setting chart. Clear, easy to read scales help you to set the spread rate exactly using the shutter slide. The settings can be made either manually to the rear or via an operator terminal.

By being able to open and close the shutter slides individually, the desired quantity of fertiliser required for each side can be applied via the spreading disc.

  2. On/off shutter

The checking the spread rate is extremely easy using the calibration kit for determining the material characteristics (flow behaviour etc.).

Adjusting the working width: OM OmniaSet spreading disc for the ultimate precision

The OM OmniaSet spreading discs are equipped with pivoting spreading vanes that generate a spread pattern that is extremely precise and safe. With the aid of an easily readable scale that is in the user’s field of view, the spreading vanes can be adjusted easily and exactly, without tools. AMAZONE provides comprehensive setting charts for all kinds of fertiliser, seed and slug pellets. The OM OmniaSet spreading discs are made from stainless steel and are easy to fit.

Late top dressing is advantageous for generating quality crops. This is extremely easy to do with AMAZONE spreading discs – the standard swivel tips on the spreading vanes just have to be folded up.

Einfache direkte Bedienung (1) 2-3_Wegeeinheit_d2_111004

Simple, direct operation

  • Individual hydraulic shutter actuation via two double- acting tractor spool valves
  • A simple, 3-way valve is also available, where the tractor does not have sufficient spool valve possibilities

WindControl - Calm conditions at the touch of a button

The effect of the wind on the spread pattern can be permanently monitored and automatically compensated for by WindControl. A high-frequency wind sensor mounted on the machine records both the wind speed and the wind direction and transmits this information to the job computer.

Precision in mineral fertiliser application

Amazone offers ever more efficient and precise machines and processes, so that the agricultural sector can retain its competitiveness and future viability and operate more sustainably at the same time.

Calculate that extra profit: With the AMAZONE Border Spreading Calculator

With the AutoTS system, an average yield increase of approximately 17 percent compared with conventional systems can be obtained in the field boundary area.

SmartLearning - EasyCheck

Precise spreading made easy – a digital, mobile test kit for the easy optimisation of the lateral distribution. Instead of using the test trays, as with the normal mobile test kit, the EasyCheck system consists of just 16 lightweight rubber mats and the EasyCheck App for smartphones.
