AmaSelect

Officially on Stands B 035 and C 032, but basically across a big chunk of Hall 5A, Amazone will be using this year’s SIMA Show in Paris to showcase a host of new products and innovations and so, to help you get to grips with the new technology on offer, Amazone Ltd staff will be present on the stand from Sunday through to Tuesday evening.

The highlight of the Show will be the new Cataya power harrow / conventional drill combination which uses a radical approach to gravity, peg wheel metering systems combined with state-of-the-art control technology. The half-side, automatic headland shut-off via GPS-Switch, the 1270 litre seed tank, the electrically-driven Precis metering system are impressive, plus the SmartCenter operator station that makes calibration, hopper emptying and seed variety switchover so simple – and of course all talking via ISOBUS communication and utilising the now well-known, TwinTerminal 3.0; not to mention the collapsing plastic calibration bucket, they’ve thought of everything. The Cataya seed drill sits astride the new 01 series rotary harrows and rotary cultivators with packer roller guided levelling boards, centralised adjustment station and a vast new choice of packer rollers to cope with wet or dry, heavy or light and stony conditions. Seed placement is either via the new TwinTeC double disc coulter or the renowned RoTeC. The Cataya will come to Britain later in the year, so watch out for it at the summer shows.

When it comes to talking TwinTeC, the Cirrus 6003-2C will feature the big brother TwinTeC+ which is bigger, heavier and meatier than that on the Cataya to cope with the higher forward speeds and greater outputs demanded of the trailed Cirrus.

For the sprayers, the new 2017 model Pantera 4502 Tier IV self-propelled will be shown in Pantera-H mode for high-clearance sunflower work. The new model Pantera features a host of improved operator creature comforts, faster filling times, perkier drive lines, different hill climb options in the Pantera+, faster-folding, stronger booms, more widths and folding options for contractors; these are to name but a few of the salient points. And on the boom will be HeightSelect, the SIMA Innovations Award merit winning, new automatic height control system that recognises the nozzle selection made in AmaSelect and then lowers the boom automatically to the correct ride height in the field – now that’s clever!

With everybody looking at stale seedbed preparation and wanting high work rates of shallow stubble tillage, the Catros range has expanded rapidly in the last 12 months. Firstly saw the introduction of the neatly-folding Catros+ 12003-2TS 12 metre standard compact disc harrow and this is now joined by the Catros Special, a new lightweight 2.5, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 metre rigid range for the smaller tractor as well as the Catros+ x003-2TX in 7.0, 8.0 and 9.0 metre widths. This gives now 17 different Catros models, mostly all with a choice of 460 mm smooth or 510 mm serrated discs depending on the application. For deeper, heavier situations, then the Certos heavy compact disc harrow fills the gap between the Catros and the Cenius tined mulch cultivators which are designed with top soil deep loosening in mind. The new C-Mix Clip pin-on wearing metal system is also to be seen at SIMA for the first time and which will revolutionise share changing on the Cenius. More rollers also come into the passive soil tillage world, especially with the new DW600 disc roller for those with heavy going.

There will be ploughs galore with the S-Force stone release system on the Cayron as well as a new slatted mouldboard plus the complete Cayros range which is already on the move with new depth wheels and extra mouldboards being added to the range launched just weeks ago.

Automatic, GPS-based SectionControl continues to develop in every field – ZA-TS spreaders now come with DynamicSpread with 128 sections, the new ZA-V Hydro, also to be showcased in Paris, has 16 sections to offer as well as the AmaSwitch and AmaSelect individual nozzle shut-off on sprayers and half-width drill shut-offs. Having these many more part-width sections brings chemical and fertiliser wastage tumbling down, cutting input costs and helping to protect the environment. AmaSwitch can knock 5% off your chemical bill.

And don’t forget that this is an Agritechnica year - so this is just the tip of the iceberg as we start to see a plethora of kit to be galloping out of the starting blocks as we go through 2017; so make it your business to come and meet the crop establishment specialists in Hall 5A this weekend.

AMAZONE's virtual presence at Cereals-LIVE 2020

With Cereals 2020 unable to be held due to the Covid-19 crisis, then AMAZONE is making its presence felt in the virtual world. With new drills, cultivators and updates to spreaders and sprayers planned to be shown at Chrishall Grange in June, then details of these we will try and bring you on-line instead.

A warm welcome awaits at Agritechnica 2019

Amongst over 60 pieces of machinery or systems on the Stand, Agritechnica 2019 next week sees the launch of 30 innovations including the 3 Silver medal, award-winning innovations: AmaSense Weather, AmaSelect Row and the EasyMix App for blended fertilisers.

The new-look Cereals 2019 is on track for Boothby Graffoe, Lincs

Cereals 2019 sees further expansion of the Cirrus trailed seeder range. Designated the Cirrus 03-2CC Double-Shoot, these hydraulic folding 4 & 6 metre trailed drills now feature a second distribution head and coulter system that can be used for either sowing a second seed type or applying fertiliser directly into the seedbed without coming into direct seed contact.

Register for AMATECHNICA 2019

IOG Saltex sees the launch of the PH1500 SmartLine

This year's Show sees the launch of the all-new Profihopper PH1500. Based loosely on the concept of its kid sister, the PH1250 SmartLine the PH1500 is bigger and bolder with a new engine management and drive concept designed to keep fuel economy and noise levels to an absolute minimum.

Hektor to makes its debut at Cereals 2018

Amazone will also now use Cereals 2018 to showcase a new range of semi-mounted reversible ploughs. Designated the Hektor, the new plough range is available in 6 to 8 furrows and for tractors up to 350 HP/257 KW. The option of a 6+1 or 7+1 beam can also be specified for added flexibility.

Cereals 2018 returns to Chrishall Grange, Duxford

With having both the Sprays & Sprayers ring and static stands, it makes Cereals 2018 the ideal venue to show off some Amazing new kit that will be both working and on Stand S705, which is alongside the main ring. This new kit includes new drills, drill combis, trailed and mounted sprayers, spreaders, ploughs ..... the list goes on and on, plus an exciting new product which is still under wraps and in-waiting for the big day!

LAMMA 2018 hosts the launch of the UF2002

After its introduction to the farming world at Agritechnica last month, the new UF 2002 mounted sprayer will debut to British farmers on January 17th - 18th at LAMMA 2018 in Peterborough.
The trend towards increasing tank sizes for minimising refill times, and wider booms to improve work rates, has led to a complete new design for the model.

The new Avant grain and fert front tank to make its debut at AgriScot

6000-2C Grain & Fert front tank-based, power harrow seed drill combination has proved to be a huge success. The new four-way split tank is carried, out-front, on the well-known steering tyre packer system off the FPS 204 and so provides complete consolidation over the full width of the tractor thus increasing output and reducing ground pressure.

This year's IOG Saltex sees the release of the new E+S Hydro salt spreaders

AMAZONE Groundcare will take the opportunity to show off its new hydraulically-driven, speed-related sand and salt spreader, the E+S 01 series at IOG Saltex in the NEC from November 1st – 2nd 2017.

3C Demo Tour 2017

It doesn’t matter how impressive that new bit of kit looks when it’s polished and sitting on a Cereals or LAMMA Show stand, there is nothing quite like seeing it in the flesh out in the field where it belongs, doing what it does best - working . So 8 tractors – and 8 machines - are out on tour around the country this summer doing just that and they are coming to a field near you on:

Cataya comes to Cereals 2017

The trend latterly when it comes to drill combinations has been very much in favour of pneumatic metering systems. Larger hopper capacities and the introduction of electrically-driven metering systems with push-button calibration and automatic GPS-based headland shut-off systems have been the main driving factors. However, the simplicity of a conventional seed drill with its lack of fan and improved rearward visibility still holds some appeal to many end-users. The new 3...
