More precision, more efficiency!
In view of the very large working widths used now, the matching of the spread patterns is very important. Thanks to the electric delivery system adjustment on the TS spreading system, it is able to react precisely and sensitively in these cases. So even outer part-width sections can be easily controlled. In addition, due to the individual speed adjustment of the left and right hand side discs, the spreading width can be reduced from the far outside to the centre, so that, even at large working widths, long and shallow-shaped wedges and short work are optimally spread. This means part-width section control. In the simplest configuration, 8 part-width sections can be easily controlled manually (via the operator terminal). Up to 128 part-width sections can be controlled with the appropriate Section Control licence for the terminal.

If the operating terminal features Section Control, such as, for example, GPS-Switch part-width section control from AMAZONE, the switching of the part-width sections can be carried out completely automatically and in relation to the GPS position. Once a field has been created, the driver can concentrate fully on operating the vehicle in automatic mode, since the part-width sections are switched automatically in wedge shaped fields and on headlands.

Benefits of automatic part-width section control:

  • Stress relief on the driver
  • Increase in precision especially at night or at higher speeds
  • Fewer overlaps and gaps
  • Saving on input costs
  • Less crop damage and less environmental pollution

Spread pattern simulator

The spread pattern simulator gives an intuitive introduction to how a fertiliser spreader works. Optimal settings for a variety of combinations of fertilisers and working widths can be clearly displayed and the influence that wind and fertiliser quality have also shown. Try it for yourself…
