Drive management with optimised fuel efficiency

Stage 5 emissions compliant engine

The new Stage 5 emission complaint engine from AMAZONE uses exhaust gas recirculation, a diesel oxidation catalyst and a diesel particle filter to help protect the environment. The diesel particulate filter is continuously regenerating during operation. The SCR catalytic converter reduces the levels of nitrogen oxide with the aid of a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) injection. The new 20 litre DEF tank is positioned at the side of the 290 litre diesel tank. The DEF consumption amounts to approximately 2.5 % of the fuel consumption. This means that the DEF only requires refilling every 3 or 4 tankfuls.

The benefits:

  • Stepless hydrostatic drive from 0 to 50 km/h*
  • State-of-the-art fuel management on the road and in the field with ECO and POWER mode
  • Tailor-made speed regulated radiator fan drive
  • Proven Deutz technology with a comprehensive service network

* Please be aware of national road traffic regulations!

The heart as a unit: engine and hydrostatic drive

Deutz 6-cylinder diesel engine with a maximum output of 160 kW (218 hp)

  • Turbocharger with intercooler
  • Common-Rail injection technology
  • 6.06 litre capacity
  • Country-specific execution according to either Stage 3A or Stage 5 emission compliance

The benefits of the clever cooling system:

  • Revs on demand 
  • The fans even switch off under low power demands and cool temperatures
  • Positioned beyond the reach of dirt 
    - Left: charge air, hydraulics 
    - Right: engine, air-conditioning

"The Amazone Pantera impresses with its low diesel consumption, the minimal noise level, the good weight distribution and sufficient payload."

Running at optimum fuel saving: ECO or POWER

The new and optimised engine rev regulation mean that you can always operate the Pantera at the optimum fuel consumption efficiency. When ECO Mode has been selected in the AmaDrive vehicle terminal, the engine will search for the optimal operating point for torque and revs in the given driving situation.

When spraying on the flat, an engine rev reduction down to 950 rpm is possible. This finely tuned, automatic adaptation of engine speed takes place continuously between 950 and 2,000 rpm. However, when working on steep slopes, or operating with a full tank in hilly terrain, maximum power at up to 2,000 rpm can be drawn upon by using the POWER Mode.

Example in ECO mode

  1. Around 80 kW is required on the flat.
  2. When the machine is climbing a hill, the torque increases under load. The speed remains constant.
  3. The climb takes longer: the power consumption increases to 120 kW. The speed remains constant with slightly increased fuel consumption.

Infinitely variable power

The powerful Deutz 6-cylinder diesel engine with Common-Rail injection technology provides 218 hp and impresses by its high performance yet low fuel consumption. Thanks to the modern hydrostatic drive mechanism, you can drive the Pantera with absolute infinite variability.

This system allows, even at a low engine speeds, high start-up torques and a very dynamic acceleration.

Good power/weight ratio

The low unladen weight of the Pantera 4504 (9,900 kg in a 24 metre working width) is another advantage with regard to its low fuel consumption. So, the fuel tank volume of 290 litres enables high work rates over long days.

Drive and brake management

Pantera – reliable intelligence
Due to the large wheel diameters, very high torques are required, especially when starting off. The intelligent drive concept of the Pantera does not build up these high forces hydraulically but mechanically via the fixed reduction ratio of the planetary gearbox. This is an extremely reliable drive under difficult ground conditions and when starting off.

Antrieb- und Bremsmanagement

  1. Gear pumps
  2. Axial piston pump for spray pumps
  3. Constant pressure pump
  4. Hydraulic motor
  5. Disc brakes
  6. Planetary gear driven reduction 1:23.5
  7. Engine
  8. Axial piston pump for travel drive

Traction control as standard

The drive torque of the four wheel motors is constantly being monitored electronically and then regulated to ensure the optimum vehicle behaviour even under difficult conditions. Power-consuming differential locks are avoided. Traction control (TCS) also ensures safe driving on the road at all times.

Pantera+ drive concept – Powerful intelligence

With the Pantera+, AMAZONE offers a drive concept that is particularly suitable for extreme terrain in hilly areas. Instead of the standard wheel drive hubs, all the Pantera models can be equipped with an alternative wheel hub with a gear reduction ratio of 1:30 (instead of 1:23.5). The Pantera+ has significantly more power with the alternative wheel drive hubs. The maximum speed is 40 km/h.

Advantages of the drive system:

  • High torque at all times 
  • No speed change steps 
  • A fixed reduction ratio in the planetary gearboxes drive the wheels

Pantera – Safe intelligence

When the speed is reduced via the drive lever, the Pantera’s hydrostatic brake is activated and the vehicle is braked down to a complete stop without fuss. In addition, the Pantera has a hydraulic braking system with disc brakes, which are applied via a foot pedal. The drive stops automatically when they are applied.

Advantages of the braking system:

  • Safe and elegant driving performance
  • Reliable braking performance, even during emergency stops from 50 km/h
  • Automatic activation of the parking brake when standing still
  • Autohold assist when starting off on a slope

Automated steering systems

AMAZONE offers the Steer-Ready kit as a GPS-based automated steering solution which controls the hydraulic steering. This provides a reproducible track-to-track accuracy of approx. 2 cm in combination with an RTK correction signal.

Steer Ready prepared connection for third-party systems

As an option, the Pantera can be equipped with the Steer Ready prepared connection for automatic steering systems. As a result, the Pantera is prepared ex works for the installation of various steering system products.

Two versions ex works

There is a choice of two manufacturers with regard to the steering system which can be installed in the Pantera in the factory. The customer can choose between the premium suppliers TopCon and Trimble, each of which can be equipped with different correction signals up to and including RTK accuracy, depending on the requirements.

Steering management for all Panteras – It has to be manoeuvrable, compact and flexible!

Relax and enjoy the job – even on the headland

In spite of the size of the vehicle, the minimum turning circle of the Pantera is only 4.50 m when in all-wheel steer. This extreme manoeuvrability significantly increases work rates, particularly in small fields. Switching between all-wheel and front-wheel steering is carried out via the AmaDrive 7.0 vehicle terminal. Dog leg steer helps you keep perfectly on track, even on a side slope.

The Pantera also shows its intelligence on the headland:
If headland management has been activated on the AmaDrive 7.0 vehicle terminal, switching off the nozzles automatically switches to all-wheel steering and the boom is lifted. Front-wheel steering is restored when the nozzles are switched on after turning has been completed.
