Border spreading systems

Side spreading (yield orientated) with Limiter V or V+

The adjacent field is also in a crop. In this instance a small amount of fertiliser being thrown beyond the field’s border can be tolerated. The fertiliser distribution inside the field is maintained so there is still about 80 % of the predetermined quantity even at the field’s edge.

Border spreading (environmentally-orientated) with Limiter V or V+

If the field is positioned next to a road or against a cycle path, no fertiliser should be thrown beyond the field border. In order to avoid over-fertilisation inside the field, the spread rate on the border side needs to be reduced. This results in slight under fertilisation at the extreme of the field boundary. The border spreading procedure complies with the requirements of the Fertiliser Directive.

Water course spreading (environmentally-orientated) with Limiter V or V+

In cases where a water course is situated directly at the field’s edge, the fertiliser environmental legislation prescribes the maintenance of either a distance of one metre with the aid of a border spreading device, or as much as three metres when not using a border spreading device. In order to prevent over-fertilisation on the inside of the field, the spread rate from the side of the spreader towards the border again has to be reduced.

Border spreading with the border spread deflector

If the first tramline is situated at the field’s edge, border spreading (environmentally-orientated adjustment) is then achieved by utilising the half-side shut-off of the spread fan. No fertiliser is thrown beyond the field boundary and optimum fertilisation is maintained inside the field.

Bed spreading with bed spreading deflector at both sides

AMAZONE offers the bed spreading deflector for spreading special crops in beds on the left and right of the tramline. This keeps the tramline almost completely free of fertiliser.

Limiter V border spreading system

Hydraulically-actuated Limiter V

For side, border and water course spreading, the hydraulically-actuated Limiter V border spreading system is available. Prior to spreading, the recommended working height of the Limiter V is fixed via a pin, depending on the border situation. Around the field’s edge, the Limiter V can then be hydraulically lowered to that pre-selected position and raised again in the field.

Limiter V+ border spreading system

Electrically-adjustable Limiter V+

In this way, via infinitely-adjustable electric adaptation of the angle of the Limiter V+ in relation to field’s border, a comfortable changeover between side, border and water course spreading is possible from the tractor cab. Due to the design of the Limiter V+ being open at the bottom, this can be swivelled down in steps from above into the spread fan diverting what is going towards the field’s border.

  1. With just a slight lowering of the Limiter V+ only the fertiliser flow of the long vane is deflected.
  2. If the Limiter V+ is lowered further, the fertiliser flow from both spreading vanes is deflected.
  3. In the completely lowered position, lamella block provides an accurate spread pattern towards the field’s border.

Side, border and water course spreading

For spreading next to adjacent fields, roads or water courses, the ZA-V can be equipped with the Limiter V+. The border spreading system can be lowered in small steps into the fertiliser flow. Via the swivelable adjustment around the centre of the spreading disc, the Limiter V+ can be set to the different working widths and fertiliser types. In this way an accurate spread pattern at the border is ensured.

  2. Side spreading
  3. Border and water course spreading

Border spread deflector

In cases where there is a need to spread directly from the field edge back into the field, the border spread deflector is available.  When the border spread deflector is swivelled down into work, then spreading is carried out only with the field side spreading disc so that any fertiliser is deflected in such a way that it is only thrown into the field and behind the tractor and not beyond the border. The border spread deflector can be utilised to both the left or right hand side. The actuation of the border spread deflector is carried out either manually or, as option, hydraulically from the tractor seat. When swivelled out of work, the border spread deflector has no influence on the normal spreading.

Bed spreading deflector

For spreading beds to either side of the tractor, the bed spreading deflector provides the optimum fertiliser distribution without spreading any material behind the tractor. For optimising the fertiliser distribution, the telescopic end pieces on the bed spreading deflector can be adjusted to suit, depending on working width and fertiliser type. The bed spreading deflector can be used on one side or both sides. Just like the border spread deflector, the bed spreading deflector is actuated manually, or, as an option, hydraulically from the tractor seat. If the bed spreading deflector is swivelled up out of the way, then the spreader can be utilised as usual for arable farming.
