Soft Ballistic System pro – for extremely gentle treatment of the fertiliser

4 decisive advantages with SBS pro

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.

As a safety feature, AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System pro is integrated as standard. The agitator, shutter slides and spreading discs are all optimally matched. This protects the fertiliser and ensures that yields are maintained.


  1. Gentle guidance:
    The electrically driven star agitators in the hopper bottoms ensure an even fertiliser delivery onto the spreading discs. The slowly rotating, star shaped segments of the agitator evenly deliver the fertiliser to the relevant outlet opening. When the delivery system is adjusted, the agitator star rotates as well so that it is always perfectly positioned above the aperture. The agitator switches off automatically when the shutter slide is closed.
     
  2. Gentle delivery:
    Due to the delivery system, adjustment to the throwing width and throwing direction can be regulated. In addition, the working width can be adjusted each side individually by changing the disc speed. The fertiliser is fed on centrally at a low peripheral speed resulting in little fertiliser damage. The concentric delivery system adjustment results always in a gentle treatment of the fertiliser.
     
  3. Gentle acceleration:
    With a standard disc speed from 600 rpm up to 900 rpm, the AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System pro gently accelerates the fertiliser. Even fertiliser types with minimal breaking strength maintain their spreading properties and provide a clean, even spread pattern.
     
  4. Gentle ejection:
    With the aid of the AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System, the fertiliser is provided with the energy required for the optimum trajectory and a precise spread pattern. So, the spreading vanes are optimally adjusted to a laid-back position.

WindControl - Calm conditions at the touch of a button

The effect of the wind on the spread pattern can be permanently monitored and automatically compensated for by WindControl. A high-frequency wind sensor mounted on the machine records both the wind speed and the wind direction and transmits this information to the job computer.

Precision in mineral fertiliser application

Amazone offers ever more efficient and precise machines and processes, so that the agricultural sector can retain its competitiveness and future viability and operate more sustainably at the same time.

Calculate that extra profit: With the AMAZONE Border Spreading Calculator

With the AutoTS system, an average yield increase of approximately 17 percent compared with conventional systems can be obtained in the field boundary area.
