SBS – Soft Ballistic System
The concept: Gentle fertiliser treatment means more precision
The AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System utilises the agitators which are shaped in such a way that the fertiliser is taken from across the whole width of the hopper. This prevents the formation of a fertiliser funnel in the centre of the hopper.
The delivery of the fertiliser directly onto the centre of the spreading disc is especially advantageous because of the low peripheral speed of the spreading discs in this sector.
The AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System gently accelerates the fertiliser via the spreading discs rotating at 720 rpm. making sure that even very fragile fertilisers keep their spreading properties.
With the aid of the AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System, the fertiliser is only provided with the energy required for the optimum trajectory and a precise spread pattern.
Safety as standard
Mineral fertilisers require particularly gentle treatment to ensure precise distribution and transport out to the crop over the total working width. Fertiliser which has been already damaged by the spreader can no longer be spread evenly. The AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System is already integrated as standard in the ZA-M mounted spreaders as a safety "package". The agitator, shutter slides and spreading discs are all optimally matched. This protects the fertiliser and ensures that yields are maintained.
