Manoeuvrable and comfortable – Perfect driving behaviour on the road and in the field

Greater comfort – gentle on the crop

  • True track-following at track widths of 1.80 to 2.25 m
  • Increased driving comfort due to sprung-suspended and height adjustable drawbar system
  • Stable and robust chassis technology, designed for speeds of up to 60 km/h
  • Automatic braking force regulation
  • Oversized tyres reduce the ground pressure and allows operation even under the most arduous of conditions
  • Wheel diameters of up to 2.05 m possible

“New for the fertiliser spreaders is the axle steering [...] making the machines manoeuvrable and ensures a true track-following“

True-track axle steering

The ZG-TS trailed spreaders, equipped with the optional steering axle, provides a maximum steering angle of up to 28°. This means: true track-following is still possible even with a track width of 1,800 mm and a tyre width of 520 mm. The automatic steering even allows counter-steering on slopes. As soon as the spreading disc drive has been deactivated and a speed of 15 km/h is exceeded, the steering automatically stops to ensure the safe road transport at speeds of up to 60 km/h.

True-track axle steering

Benefits of axle pivot steering:

  • Steering angle up to 28°
  • Minimum turning radius of 4.5 m
  • True track-following – for gentle crop treatment
  • Counter-steering in sloping terrain

Linkage – couple up and go!

Make the choice that suits your tractor! The drawbar and coupling system are freely combinable. Decide between a towing eye, a K80 ball coupling, a ring coupling or a pivoting ring coupling and select between a drawbar hitch coupling and the classic drawbar coupling!

Automatic braking force control

In order to be safe on the road, even at high speeds and different load capacities, the ZG-TS offers an optional automatic load-dependent braking force control. The electronic braking system (EBS) receives the signal for determining the load-dependent braking force from the Profis on-line weighing system. Since the weighing system continuously determines the quantity in the hopper, the delivered braking force adapts automatically. Due to this, the braking sensitivity is perfect for all load ranges. The ZG-TS also fulfils the requirements of the EU braking regulations 167/2013.

Advantages of the electronically-controlled braking system

  • Load-dependent braking
  • Comfortable and safe road travel
  • Maximum safety on the headlands and on slopes
