Hydraulic pump drive for the UF 1602 and UF 2002 mounted sprayers
Maximum comfort for mounted sprayers
AMAZONE offers a hydraulic pump drive for the UF 1602 and UF 2002 mounted sprayer. This is completely integrated in the hydraulic system in conjunction with the Comfort-Pack.
The hydraulic pump drive, which replaces the drive shaft, makes the attachment to various tractors exceptionally easy and requires no maintenance.
Operation and regulation
The hydraulic pump drive is regulated via the Load-Sensing system of the crop protection sprayer. Operation is provided completely via the ISOBUS software of the UF 02. Different pump speeds can be stored for filling, agitating and spraying. When one of these above functions is selected, the pump automatically adjusts the pump speed and keeps the speed constant regardless of the tractor engine speed. Speeds above the maximum pump speed of 540 rpm are safely prevented.
The oil requirement for the hydraulic pump drive is up to 50 l/min.
At the start of the filling process, the pump can be started comfortably from the TwinTerminal 3.0 in the SmartCenter of the UF. The pump is started nice and gently. The pump speed is regulated completely automatically and quickly reaches the pre-set speed. The engine speed of the tractor is irrelevant here. The maximum suction capacity can be used in full at all times without any concerns, since the control system automatically reduces any speeds above 540 rpm. As an option, the pump can be automatically switched off via the software after the nominal fill level has been reached.
Application in the field
When applying plant protection agents in hilly terrain, the pump speed of the sprayer is always kept constant within the permissible range e.g. when going uphill with a high tractor engine speed and driving downhill at a lower, more fuel-efficient speed. This guarantees optimum application results, reduces the fuel consumption and protects the pump from any overloading generated by excessive speeds.
- Pump drive independent of the tractor
- Protection of the pump due to no excessive speeds
- Easy coupling to and uncoupling from the tractor
