The extensions: In two widths and many sizes

Amazone Düngerstreuer ZA-V, Die Aufsätze: In zwei Breiten und vielen Größen

For subsequent increases to the hopper capacity of the ZA-V, AMAZONE offers, for the S and L base hopper extensions, a further suitable bolt-on extension.

The volume of these bolt-on extensions is 600 l for the S hopper width and 800 l for the L hopper width.

The spreading disc drive: Mechanical drive

Mechanischer Antrieb

On the mechanically-driven ZA-V spreaders, the spreading unit and also the agitator are driven via the universal joint shaft. Here the spreader is, as standard, protected from overload via a friction clutch on the PTO shaft. The input speed from the tractor PTO is transmitted via the central gearbox resulting in an increased spreading disc speed. This allows fuel-saving fertilisation at low engine revs across the maximum working width.

With mechanically-driven spreaders, between two and eight part-width sections are switchable, depending on the operator terminal.

The spreading disc drive: Hydraulic drive

Hydraulischer Antrieb

The hydraulically-driven ZA-V Hydro spreader makes operation possible with different spreading disc speeds, irrespective of the engine speed of the tractor. In this way a particularly comfortable and precise spreading is possible and side, border or water course spreading can be activated independently to each side. The switching over between these individual functions is conveniently possible also on the move. If the pre-set speed for spreading at the field border is not precise enough, then this can also be adjusted via the terminal on the move.

With the hydraulic spreading disc drive, up to 16 part-width sections can be actuated.

Spreading system with Soft Ballistic System

Amazone Düngerstreuer ZA-V: Streuwerk mit Soft Ballistic System

Due to its large aperture, the ultra-modern spreading system on the ZA-V can achieve application rates of up to 390 kg/min. The hopper tip, which tapers down to the shutter slide, prevents any residues being left making it easy to clean.

The quantity-effect free aperture is positioned freely above the spreading disc. The position is very close to the centre of the spreading disc offering the advantage that the fertiliser is taken up extremely gently by the spreading discs at the lowest circumferential speed. The fertiliser is then accelerated very gently. The spread pattern is maintained at all application rates and at all forward speeds and is completely independent to the spread rate.

On ZA-V spreaders, the entire spreading system is made from stainless steel and high-quality glass-fibre reinforced plastic and thus provides a long service life and a high resale value.

SBS – Soft Ballistic System

Amazone Düngerstreuer ZA-V: SBS – Soft Ballistic System

Mineral fertilisers require an especially-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 reliably distributed. On the ZA-V, the agitator, shutter slides and spreading discs are optimally matched; protecting the fertiliser and ensuring yields are maintained.

Double overlap at up to 36 m working width

Amazone Düngerstreuer ZA-V, Doppelte Überlappung bis 36 m Arbeitsbreite

The spreading unit of the ZA-V has been developed utilising three dimensional spread patterns, ensuring the perfect lateral distribution and allowing, thanks to SBS, the generation of working widths of up to 36 m. The large overlap zones provide the perfect spread pattern.

Spreading discs with QuickSet

Amazone Düngerstreuer ZA-V: Streuscheiben mit QuickSet

Only 3 pairs of spreading discs cover the entire operational range from 10 m to 36 m. The working width is simply, quickly and safely adjusted via the spreading vane position. Setting of the spreading vanes is carried out without any tools via the QuickSet setting system.

The standard spreading disc speed is at a fertiliser-protecting 720 rpm.

With their special shape, and several feed-on points at both the upper and lower end of the spreading vane, the newly developed spreading vanes of the ZA-V provide an especially good lateral distribution.

The different spreading vanes can be quickly and simply exchanged with the aid of an interchangeable system. The ideal solution for users with different tramline systems and multiple fertiliser types.

The intelligent agitator

Amazone Düngerstreuer ZA-V: Das intelligente Rührwerk

The new mechanical star agitator of the ZA-V is positioned directly above the deep aperture and in this way provides a reliable and consistent fertiliser flow at all application rates. Turning at just 45 rpm, it makes for a fertiliser-protecting operation. When the shutter slides are closed on both sides, the agitator speed is reduced to prevent unnecessary damage to the fertiliser.

SafetySet as standard

Amazone Düngerstreuer ZA-V: SafetySet

The AMAZONE ZA-V is equipped with SafetySet as standard to ensure maximum safety. The surrounding guard tube fulfils the accident prevention regulations. Large-dimensioned marker boards to the rear and the road lighting kit ensure better visibility in road traffic.

ZA-V with hydraulic shutter actuation

Amazone Anbaustreuer ZA-V, ZA-V mit hydraulischer Schieberbetätigung

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

Amazone Düngerstreuer ZA-V Easy Bedieneinheit

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 / ZA-V Profis Control: Equipped as standard with the machine-specific AmaSpread+ in-cab terminal

ZA-V Profis Control: Serienmäßig mit maschinenspezifischem Bedien-Computer AMASPREAD+

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 complete settings for a total of 20 different fertiliser types can be stored and recalled at any time directly in 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 operated via 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, changeover from normal spreading to side, border or water course spreading on the move from the tractor seat.

ZA-V Tronic / ZA-V Profis Tronic: The mechanically-driven ISOBUS spreader

Amazone Düngerstreuer ZA-V, ZA-V Profis Tronic – der ISOBUS-Streuer

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: The hydraulically-driven ISOBUS spreader

ZA-V Profis Hydro

The ZA-V programme is upgraded and 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. For spreading at the field’s side the switching over between these individual functions on the move is possible. In case the pre-set disc speed for the accurate spreading at the side does not suit 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 a fertiliser-saving, simply interchangeable and adjustable spreading at the field’s border, the ZA-V Hydro also provides the benefit that this spreader operates completely independently from the tractor engine speed thus saving 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.
