The AMAZONE delivery system – for first-class spreading results
Concentric delivery system adjustment
The fertiliser is mainly deposited, via the delivery system, and thus in as gentle a manner as possible, at the centre-point of the spreading discs. The circumferential speeds are low at this point on the discs, and the fertiliser is handled very gently. For setting the spreading unit to different working widths and types of fertiliser, the delivery system is swivelled (concentrically) around the centre of the discs. The distance between the feed-on point of the fertiliser and the centre of the disc always remains the same.
The swivelling of the delivery system offers a wide bandwidth of possible working widths. A working width range from 15 m to 54 m is covered by just three sets of spreading vanes.
All TS spreading systems with electric delivery system adjustment are suitable for the ArgusTwin spread pattern monitoring system.
Ultraquick and precise! Electric setting motors
A spreader which, due to the high application rates and operational speeds possible, explores new dimensions in terms of work rates and which, of course, needs to perform extremely precisely at the same time, requires setting motors that function extremely quickly and exactly. Especially in applications, such as the automatic on/off switching at the headland or in wedges, spreading using application maps or with the continuous on-board monitoring (ArgusTwin and WindControl), the setting motors ensure the highest level demands are met.
Clean transfer – The brush unit
The bristles of the brushes which are fitted directly to the outlet apertures reach to the upper edge of the spreading vanes so that the fertiliser is safely delivered onto the disc.
Quantity effect-free metering aperture
If it is intended to spread a constant application rate it is necessary to match the size of the metering aperture to the prevailing operational speed. Thanks to the shutter slide, this task is fulfilled very quickly and sensitively. Due to the kidney-shaped design of the metering aperture, the spread pattern remains unchanged and precise, even at varying operational speeds so that the position of the delivery system does not require any adjustment.
