National show bandwagon rolls on up to Ingliston
With never a dull day in the agricultural show calendar, Ingliston Showground in Edinburgh hosts the next round with the Royal Highland Show opening its doors to the public on Thursday 23rd June this year. Running for four days until the Sunday, the show retains its strong agricultural feel and machinery manufacturers from across the globe support the RHASS with Amazone Ltd being no exception.
Amazone are located this year as always up on Avenue T along the side of the main road and this year’s Stand 325 will feature several of the innovative new launches from Cereals 2016.
The new Cenius 3003 Super mulch cultivator comes fitted with the innovative C-Mix tine that offers the ulti-mate in stone protection with a 600 kg breakaway force and this will take centre stage in the cultivation stakes alongside the Cayron 200VS-100 5 furrow stone release plough. The Cenius has now developed into a professional min-till cultivator line-up with mounted machines from 3, 3.5 & 4m through to the folding TX in widths from 4m through to 7m. For working depths from 5 cm down to 30 cm, there are now 6 different share permutations depending on the application and 9 following rollers with the heavy land DW600 disc roller now joining the options available as from the Highland Show. Both the Cenius and the Cenius TX are offered in either Special specification with a shear bolt leg protection or as the Super with the C-Mix pressure spring release system.
The aforementioned Cayron 200VS plough features the new S-Force stone release system which is the ultimate in both plough protection and in preventing the bringing up of stones to the surface. The down force on each leg can be set from 750kg through to 2000kg and is settable from the tractor seat. When tripped, the leg can raise upwards 45cm, or sideways by 20cm, to clear any obstacle in its way. Once clear then the down-force increases to ensure the plough returns to its set depth as quickly as possible. The plough at the RHS will be also fitted with the new heavy land C-Blade W35 mouldboard for an extended twist along the fur-row to prevent soil falling back into the furrow bottom and ensuring a full inversion of the soil. A trashboard is now offered as an option to the standard maize skimmers.
Of course, a big topic of conversation at the Highland Show is combined grain and fertiliser drilling and this year will be no different with new fertiliser-ready Cirrus 4003-2C as well as the updated AD-P Super-C both on parade. The AD-P Super-C comes with exceptional RoTeC pro coulters, the new variable split seed tank which can be specified 50:50 / 60:40 or 40:60 depending on application as well as the roll-over hopper cover, new marker arms, low oil requirement blower fan, etc., etc. For the higher output guys, the trailed drill range is extended with a 4m folding grain and fert cultivator drill which offers exceptional seedbed preparation quality, targeted reconsolidation to the seed row via the big diameter Matrix tyres and then the RoTeC pro coulter. The pressurised 4000 litre seed tank can be used 100% seed, 60:40 or 40:60 depending on the application and the Cirrus range becomes ISOBUS-controlled as standard.
Spreader innovations see the launch of the Argus Twin system on the ZA-TS Profis Hydro for constant spread pattern monitoring on the move via 14 radar sensors and, at the other end of the spectrum, the new ZA-V Superior with hydraulic shut-off and manual Limiter V adjustment. This new ZA-V model comes in under the elec-trically-shuttered ZA-V Control and Profis Control options. The Superior brings the considerable benefits of the ZA-V spreading system within the budget of the smaller grower.
Come and see us on Avenue T, the ISOBUS Clinic is open daily to answer your precision farming dilemmas and, either rain or shine, there should be suitable refreshments on offer to suit.
We look forward to welcoming you there.
