ZA-M Centrifugal Broadcaster


The extensions: Flexible hopper volumes using the after-fit extensions

ZA-M S und L Ausätze

Extension S – narrow execution
The narrow S-extension gives you a smaller transport width. Direct filling from a tipping trailer or out of big bags is no problem.

Extension L – wide execution
The large filling width of 2.76 m provides you with adequate safety when loading with wide buckets. The wide L-extension is particularly recommended when large industrial front loading shovels are being used.

Side spreading (yield oriented setting)

ZA-M – Randstreuen

The neighbouring field is an area that is used agriculturally. In this case it is tolerable for a small quantity of fertiliser to be thrown over the border of the field. The fertiliser distribution inside the field boundary is still 80 % of the desired application rate at the edge of the field.

Boundary spreading (environmentally oriented -setting)

ZA-M – Grenzstreuen

If the field is adjacent to a road or cycle path, no fertiliser must be thrown beyond the border of the field. The spread rate must be reduced at the border side so that no over-fertilisation occurs within the boundary of the field. A small amount of under-ferti-lisation occurs before the edge of the field. The border spreading procedure complies with the fertiliser decree requirements.

Water course spreading (environmentally oriented setting)

ZA-M – Grabenstreuen

If there is surface water at the edge of the field, a distance of one meter must be maintained -using a border spreading device according to the -fertiliser ordinance, and even three metres without a border spreading device. In order to prevent over-fertilisation inside the field, the spread rate must be reduced at the boundary side.

Side spreading – first tramline at the field edge

ZA-M – Randstreuen – Erste Fahrgasse am Feldrand

If the first tramline is at the edge of the field, side spreading (yield-oriented adjustment) is achieved by shutting off one side of the spread fan. Only a little -fertiliser goes beyond the boundary of the field, and optimum fertilisation takes place within the boundary.

Border spreading with Tele-Set disc

ZA-M Tele-Set-Scheibe

All of the requirements of the current fertiliser ordinance can be perfectly met with AMAZONE boundary spreading equipment.

Tele-Set disc:
You can change over from normal spreading to side, boundary or water course spreading by means of a tool-less disc change.

Border spread deflector, left hand

Randstreuschirm, links

The one-sided, manually folded spread deflector is a low-cost solution for carrying out boundary spreading on the left side in the direction of travel.

Row spreading attachment, both sides

ZA-M Randstreuschirm

The bed spreading deflector can be used to spread to the left, the right or to both sides and ensures that the tractor wheel track is left almost fertiliser free. It is adjustable for different sorts of fertiliser and is ideal for specialist crops and makes many types of operation possible. Mounting and dismounting is done quickly and easily without tools.

AMAZONE Limiter, right or left hand

ZA-M perfektes Grenzstreuen

With the ZA-M there is a choice: Limiter to the right or left hand side. Modern tractors have most of the controls on the right next to the driver’s seat. In this case, border spreading is more convenient and comfortable using the right hand Limiter. The all-stainless steel Limiter is simply folded down into the spread fan. The lamella block then produces a direction change for part of the flow of fertiliser. An optimum spreading pattern is formed up to the border.

Perfect boundary and side spreading

Amazone Düngerstreuer ZA-M, Grenz- und Randstreuen in Perfektion

The Limiter is a modern boundary spreading system that is used if the first tramline is half the working width of the fertiliser spreader in from the edge of the field. It is used for side, boundary and water course spreading.

The decisive advantage with the Limiter is that there is no need to stop, interrupt the spreading operation or dismount from the tractor.

When boundary or watercourse spreading, the application rate on the edge side is automatically reduced by the EasySet, AmaDos+ or AmaTron 3 terminals when the Limiter is lowered down.

The Limiter can be moved on a fixed frame within a generously dimensioned swivel range. This sets the Limiter to the required position for side, boundary or water course spreading, depending on the type of fertiliser. Exact details of this can be found in the setting chart and on a sticker on the machine. If the Limiter is not being used, it is conveniently swivelled up via a hydraulic cylinder.

Parking and rolling device with parking brake

ZA-M – Rollvorrichtung

A sensible accessory: The robust castor wheels make it easier to attach and detach the spreader and manoeuvre in the farmyard. The wheels can be quickly removed.

“Tele-Space” PTO shaft

ZA-M – Gelenkwelle „Tele-Space“

It is even easier to attach and detach the spreader using the “Tele-Space” telescopic PTO shaft.

Hopper cover

ZA-M Abdeck-Schwenkplane

The hopper cover is simply swivelled open before filling. When closed it allows fertiliser spreading to continue, even during bad weather.

Front lighting with integrated ladder

Amazone Düngerstreuer ZA-M, Frontbeleuchtung / integrierte Leiter

According to the StVZO, front lights are required for the wide L-extension if there is an excess width. The ladder integrated on the left-hand side provides a better view into the hopper and therefore makes inspection and cleaning easier.

EasySet, the simplest of terminals

Amazone EasySet

With the help of the EasySet operating terminal, the left and right shutter settings can be adjusted separately at the press of a button whilst on the move. This means that the spread rate can be set individually to either the left or right hand side.

The EasySet terminal can also be used to operate the optional Limiter border spreading system. A LED light on the terminal shows the driver whether the Limiter is active (swung down) or not.

Main benefits of EasySet:
• Simple operating terminal without menus
• Only individual function keys
• Comfortable operation from the tractor seat of both the on/off and shutter position without the need for tractor spool valves
• Adjustment of the application rate by alteration of the shutter position
• Border spreading with manual spread rate reduction
• Readout of the Limiter position possible

Simple, direct operation

ZA-M 2- und 3-Wegeeinheiten

• 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

AmaDos+, the measure of comfort and convenience in fertiliser spreading

Control-Paket (für alle Modelle)

For the ZA-M with mechanical spreading disc drive there is the Control package with AmaDos+ for electronic control of the spread rate, independent of the forward speed.

Benefits from AmaDos+:
• The preselected spread rate always remains the same whatever the optimum working speed selected. This is particularly beneficial with tractors with a variable transmission
• Quantity changes can be made variably to both sides or just one side with this modern operator control terminal in order to save money and protect the environment
• Robust actuator motors on the rate shutters adjust the spread rate
• The hydraulic shutters of the double shutter control system are operated independently of the electronic rate shutter. This is quicker, and protects the electronic actuator motors
• All electronic components are protected from water ingress and corrosion
• The speed is recorded using sensor systems or the tractor signal socket
• Simple calibration program with independent rate setting determination
• Robust sensor equipment for function monitoring, e.g. of the shutter position
• Can be extended to other applications, e.g. as a hectare counter during manure spreading, cultivation or mowing with a separate working position sensor
• Serial interface available for documentation and the connection of N-sensors and GPS-terminal supplied application maps for site-specific fertilisation
• Job memory for up to 20 field records

Electronic control with AmaTron 3 for ZA-M 1001 Special Profis

Tronic-Paket (ab ZA-M 1200)

Profis Tronic package:
The ZA-M Profis Tronic package offers forward-speed related spread rate control, calibration via the weigh cell as well as controlling the Limiter border spreading device settings.

Because of its large display and its clear, simple and logical operation, the AmaTron 3 is extremely user-friendly. All functions can be operated with the one hand whilst the other hand stays on the steering wheel. Also, the AmaTron 3 is capable of taking over the monitoring of the Limiter with integral automatic spread rate control during boundary spreading and can also be used for other AMAZONE machinery such as a field sprayer or seed drills due to its multi- functionality.

By using the practical and clearly designed AmaTron 3, you only need one terminal for the control of different fertilising functions. With the AmaTron 3, all relevant data is clearly displayed and the few necessary inputs are entered very conveniently. AmaTron 3 is fully downward compatible to AmaTron+ and upwardly compatible to the ISOBUS Standard providing a bridge between the AMABUS and the ISOBUS world.

ASD – reliable, quick and simple

Amazone ZG-B ASD Automatische Schlagbezogene Dokumentation

Automatic field-related documentation (ASD) is a product and manufacturer-encompassing documentation concept for transmitting field-related data between the AmaTron 3 and AmaDos+ on-board computers and an electronic field data management system. The digital interface used is published and accessible to other manufacturers.

ASD provides the farmer with the possibility of simply and economically integrating all machines in the documentation chain.

GPS-Track for AmaTron 3

GPS-Track für Amatron 3

The GPS-Track parallel guidance system proves to be a huge help for orientation within the field. It features different track modes, such as A-B line, contour following and an obstacle function. The tracks are clearly numbered all the way through. The deviation from the ideal line is graphically shown in the display; clear steering recommendations keep you on track. Also the distance to the next bout is accurately displayed – for an ideal orientation.

Of course, GPS-Track also works as a “stand-alone“ system, even without an implement attached.

GPS-Maps for AmaTron 3

GPS-Maps für AmaTron 3

In addition to the ISO-XML-data management, the job management of the terminal (TaskController) is also able to process application maps, meaning, depending on the objective and the terminal, several possibilities for a part-area site specific application – according to a map or to a sensor. Which system is most suitable and will best serve the individual demands and requirements is just up to you as the user.

EasyCheck – Precise spreading made easy!


Digital, mobile test kit for the easy optimisation of the lateral distribution

Instead of testing trays, such as those found in the normal mobile test kit, the EasyCheck system consists of just 16 lightweight test mats made from rubber and the EasyCheck App for Smartphones. The test mats are positioned in pre-determined distances away from the tramline. Then the relevant tramlines are spread and the mats with the fertiliser granules laying on them are photographed via Smartphone. The App now compares automatically how much fertiliser has been collected on each test mat and sets the results of the individual rows to an average. In cases where the spreading results are not the optimum, the App suggests readjustments for the setting of the relevant fertiliser spreader.

For further information please see the EasyCheck instruction manual. You can download the App here. Supplement: Preferred implements for photo analysis for EasyCheck.
