Bigger one gets smaller


AMAZONE has widened its range of UF 02 mounted sprayers with the introduction of the new, ISOBUS compatible, UF 1602 with a nominal volume of 1,600 l and an actual volume of 1,700 l. The UF 1602 can be equipped with all Super-S2 booms from 15 m to 30 m.

The UF 1602 features a specifically shaped, polyurethane tank with a favourable centre of gravity. The very smooth tank walls allow the effective interior and exterior cleaning of the tank.

The operation of the spray agent circuit of the UF 1602 is carried out via the centralised SmartCenter operator centre. This is positioned, well protected from dirt and splash water, behind a large hinged door found on the left hand side of the machine. In addition to the operator centre, also the new, highly-effective 60 l induction bowl is positioned behind this door. Its conical shape and the high suction capacity ensure its quick, trouble-free and complete emptying. Also granules, such as Epsom salts, etc. can be inducted without any problem thanks to the mixing nozzle, positioned in the suction aperture, and the high capacity rinse ring.
For the remote control and automation of the liquid circuit, the UF 1602 offers the optional Comfort-Pack which comes complete with automatic fill stop of both the suction hose filling and, if fitted, also that of the bowser fill port. During application, the agitation regulates itself automatically, depending on the tank level. As the fill level decreases, the agitation capacity reduces down eventually to a complete shut-off. In addition, auto-dynamic agitation control is also included. This means that, if a large application rate is required from the boom, the agitation capacity is automatically regulated down for a moment. Then, on the headland, as soon as all the nozzles are shut off, the agitation can then operate again at full capacity.
After application, the Comfort-Pack enables the fully automatic cleaning which can be controlled completely from the tractor cab.

The UF 1602 features the possibility to increase the volume with an additional 1,000 l by utilising the FT 1001 front tank. With FlowControl+, the front tank is completely integrated in the liquid circuit of the UF 1602. The complete liquid routing is completely automated between the front tank and the rear tank, both during the filling procedure and also during the spraying operation. Thanks to this automation, the driver operates the combination in the same way as just with one tank.
