DESIGN AWARD 2018

DESIGN AWARD 2018

With its joint teamwork of design and performance, the ZG-TS 10001, entered into the “Farm Machinery” category, convinced and inspired the iF Jury which consists of experts and designers from all over the world. The jury’s evaluation criteria included, in addition to the quality of design, the finish and material choice, the degree of innovation and the environmental compatibility, its functionality and ergonomics and, finally, a visualisation of use and safety.

The ZG-TS, the known quantity

Enormous work rates

With hopper capacities of 7,500 l and 10,000 l, the ZG-TS models are especially efficient and ideal for large farm sizes which focus in particular on increased precision. Thanks to their size, valuable travelling and loading times are saved. Due to the large hopper opening, the loading procedure can also be carried out very comfortably via a front end loader or from a bulk filling system. The belt floor, automatically centred to the middle, ensures the optimum material flow. The low-maintenance floor belt is of course automatically controlled.


Benefits of the base hopper:

  • Low hopper centre of gravity
  • Low filling height
  • Large filling opening
  • Low wearing rubber floor belt
  • Automatic belt floor control

Everything flows smoothly thanks to the optimum hopper shape

Thanks to the sophisticated hopper shape of the ZG-TS, it has an optimum centre of gravity which significantly counteracts the negative support loads. The steep hopper walls without corners or edges ensure the optimum flow of material, even in hilly terrain. The cleaning procedure is also made considerably easier. In addition, there is also an increased range of movement for the steering axle which has steering angles of up to 28 °.


Benefits of the hopper design:

  • Optimum material flow even in sloping terrain
  • Simple cleaning procedure
  • Generous space for the axle steering
  • Sophisticated centre of gravity to avoid negative support loads
  • High ground clearance

SafetySet – integrated as standard: More safety for both people and machine

As with all equipment from AMAZONE, the ZG-TS has a very high level of base equipment to ensure the safety requirements are fulfilled correctly. The lighting system with its state of the art technology (LED lights) ensures safe road transport and is, in addition, long-lasting and robust.

Benefits of SafetySet

  • More safety in road traffic thanks to over-dimensioned axles and brakes
  • Dual-circuit pneumatic braking system or hydraulic braking system, both with a parking brake 
  • In conjunction with the electronic braking system (EBS), the ZG-TS is equipped with an ABS (anti-lock braking system) as standard
  • Safe access via the retractable ladder
  • Bright lighting systems
  • Spacious platform and safe access to the hopper
  • Mudguards
  • Hand wash tank

Hydraulic parking jack – quick coupling and uncoupling

To enable the coupling and uncoupling of the ZG-TS with as much ease and speed as possible, the ZG-TS trailed spreaders feature, as standard, a hydraulic parking jack. To maintain the high ground clearance, the stand, when folded away practically disappears entirely into the frame.

The transport boxes – practical and spacious

Well integrated and within reach, for example, the mobile and digital EasyCheck test set has its place. The very large storage compartments provide the possibility to transport additional spreading vane sets and other tools.

Hand wash tank

As standard, on the left hand side of the machine, a hand wash tank is integrated in the machine so that, even after an interruption, you can wash your hands before continuing to work.

ZG-TS Truck & ZG-B Truck – High efficiency between yard and field

More efficiency thanks to high transport speeds

ZG-TS Truck & ZG-B Truck (1) ZG-TS_Aufbaustreuer_7501_links_d2_181210
Optimum weight distribution due to the hopper inclined forward

The ZG-TS and ZG-B trailed spreaders are the ideal solution for contractors and farms which have to travel large distances between field and yard. By utilising the ZG-TS and the ZG-B on a carrying vehicle even large transport distances can be managed, significantly quicker and with less fuel consumption. In addition, the spreaders on carrying vehicles can be used with larger ground clearances and track widths so that the range of application is increased. As with the standard ZG-TS, truck mounted spreaders are delivered with the ProfisPro on-line weighing system, it sets new standards in this area of application. 


Advantages of the ZG-TS Truck / ZG-B Truck

  • Better manoeuvrability in the yard and in the field
  • More efficiency on the road thanks to higher transport speeds
  • Benefits of the carrying vehicle, such as, larger ground clearance and track widths

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.

Calculate the benefit yourself!

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.
