ZA-V with hydraulic shutter actuation
If equipped with the hydraulic shutter actuation, AMAZONE offers the simple possibility to operate the shutters via two double-acting hydraulic spool valves on the tractor. As with all ZA-V product models, this version is also equipped with the precision spreading system for working widths from 10 to 36 m and which includes the SBS Soft Ballistic System. It is available in hopper capacities from 1,400 to 4,200 l.
The complete shutter slide assembly underneath the outlet opening can be adjusted via individual setting levers for each side of the spreader. The position of the shutter slide assembly is fixed via an additional clamping lever. The special feature of this model and its hydraulic shutter slide adjustment is that the hydraulic cylinder for the shutter slide actuation always opens or closes completely. The position of the setting lever only serves as a fixing for the shutter slide assembly, not as a stop to the shutter slide, and thus is not pressurised. In this way, any unintentional opening or adjustment of the application rate is avoided.
The benefits of the hydraulic shutter slide actuation:
- No operator terminal required
- Individual hydraulic shutter control of each actuation via two double-acting spool valves
- Alternatively also with the simple 3-way control unit
