Simultaneously superbly strong yet superbly light

Due to the special profile design AMAZONE sprayer booms are very light yet at the same time very robust. Working widths of 15 to 28 metres allow optimum adaptation to the field sizes and topography on the farm with various folding options. High-grade quality ensures a long operational life even over very high acreages.

Superbly narrow transport width of only 2.40 m

The Super-S2 boom folds fully automatically in and out via hydraulic rams. In the transport position, the boom sits compactly behind the tank with a transport width of only 2.40 m and a transport height of 3.30 m. With a steel profile up to 140 mm wide with multiple bends, the Super-S2 boom is extremely strong.

Super-S2 boom: firm and steady

All AMAZONE booms come as standard with. A spring/shock-absorber package for dampening the vertical roll movements and Spring damping elements with ball suspension for the damping of horizontal yaw movements and Spring elements for the shock-absorbing suspension of the entire boom. Likewise, the standard hydraulic height adjustment and height indictation skid produce an exact longitudinal and lateral distribution of the spray liquid.

Maintenance-free and with a long service life

Wartungsfrei und langlebig
Exclusively from AMAZONE: All hydraulic connectors are always made from stainless steel!

The decades of experience in boom design pay off: The conical hinge pin is the intelligent centre of a well thought-out boom philosophy! The boom pivots self-adjust against any play on the conical hinge pins and that ensures, for the end user, an optimised boom function even after many years.

The standard use of stainless steel, the automotive-industry standard, cathodic dip painting process and the targeted use of plastics and aluminium are the perfect guarantee of a long service life.

Pre-select folding

One-side folding via tractor spool valves is possible with the AmaSpray+ or an ISOBUS terminal.

The high level of flexibility offered by the pre-select folding function enables all boom sections to be folded individually. Both the left and right-hand sides can be folded in separately and independently of each other in order to adapt to any circumstances in your fields.

Profi-fold

Profi-fold refers to the electro-hydraulic actuation of the boom via an oil circuit. The height adjustment, folding in and out, independent folding, boom width reduction and tilt adjustment functions (Profi-fold 1) can be easily controlled via the ISOBUS terminal or the multi-function joystick. Additional boom tip angling is possible with Profi-fold 2.

DistanceControl mit 2 Sensoren (1) Grafik_DistanceControl_UG_d0_20150203

DistanceControl with 2 sensors or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors

The DistanceControl fully automated boom guidance system with 2 sensors or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors is possible for the boom variants in conjunction with Profi-fold 1 or Profi-fold 2. In heavily differing crop heights, or in areas with partially lodged corn, it could be that the boom, when equipped with 2 sensors, dips into the crop. In this case, equipping the boom with four sensors will prevent this. The sensors are electrically connected in parallel and so it is always the sensor that is closest to the target surface that is actuated.

LED boom lighting for Super-S booms

For flexible and efficient operation at twilight and in the dark, LED boom lighting is available.

Two far-reaching LED work lights, mounted in the middle of the boom, ensure excellent visibility of all the nozzles at a glance.

LED individual nozzle lighting for Super-S2 booms

Professional work lighting is today the basis of a flexible, output-increasing solution to operating in twilight and at night. Illumination of the spray fans ensures complete control of the nozzle function at just one glance.

LED individual nozzle lighting picks out each individual spray fan. An absolutely immediate assessment of their operation down to the very last nozzle on the boom can be made.
