AgroShow in Polen mit neuem Besucherrekord

Vom 18. bis 21.September 2015 fand die 17. Auflage der internationalen Landwirtschaftsmesse AgroShow in Bednary/Polen statt, an der über 800 Aussteller aus mehr als 100 Ländern teilgenommen haben. Die AgroShow ist die mit Abstand wichtigste Landtechnikausstellung Polens und mit einer Fläche von ca. 15 ha die größte Freilandausstellung Europas. Laut Statistik des Veranstalters wurde die diesjährige Ausstellung bei optimalem Wetter von ca. 160.000 Personen besucht. Damit verzeichnete die Messe im Vergleich zum Vorjahr ein Plus von ca.10.000 Besuchern.


Auf dem Amazone Messestand wurden insgesamt 27 Maschinen ausgestellt. Darunter befanden sich unter anderem Neuheiten wie der Düngerstreuer ZA-V, die AD-P Special und die ED aus dem Bereich Sätechnik, der Cenius-TX und Certos-TX aus dem Bereich der Bodenbearbeitung sowie die hydraulisch höhenverstellbare, selbstfahrende Feldspritze Pantera-H. Bei den traditionellen Maschinenvorführungen auf der Spritzenstrecke war Amazone in diesem Jahr wieder mit einer Anhängefeldspritze UX 5200 vertreten und konnte die Zuschauer bei der Vorführung des 27-m-Gestänges überzeugen.

Besonders groß war das Besucherinteresse auf dem Amazone Stand für die Säkombinationen mit aktiver Bodenbearbeitungstechnik, die mechanischen Solosämaschinen sowie die Feldspritzen und Düngerstreuer. Insgesamt war das Amazone Team vor Ort mit dem Verlauf der Messe und dem Zuspruch der Besucher sehr zufrieden.

Amazone has been rewarded once again for its important innovations. So, ahead of the world’s most important and biggest agriculture machinery trade fair, the Innovations Commission has awarded Amazonen-Werke three silver medals.


Matrix tyre profile branches out onto cultivators

To expand the working spectrum of the wedge ring roller, Amazone has de-veloped a version with a new Matrix tyre profile. The special feature of this roller is the specific longitudinal and lateral profiles of the Matrix tyres. Whereas the longitudinal profile creates the desired strip-wise reconsolidation of the soil, the narrow cross bars on the profile provide more fine soil, resulting in optimum growing conditions.


New to the Amazone range: the Double-U profile roller

With the DUW 580 Double-U profile roller, Amazone has extended its pro-gramme yet further with another following roller for the Certos TX heavy com-pact disc harrow and for the Cenius TX mulch cultivator. The specific feature of this roller is the 580 mm diameter U profile rings which are open and be-come filled with soil during operation.

Better longevity from the C-Mix HD shares for Cenius cultivators

As an addition to the C-Mix share system for Cenius cultivators, Amazone now offers the C-Mix HD coulter for use in especially arduous conditions. Thanks to the hard metal inserts in the main wear areas, the C-Mix HD share (HD meaning Heavy Duty) is characterised by a significantly higher wear resistance, resulting in the decisive benefit that the share length, and thus the working depth, are maintained.


Amazone Cracker Disc roller – the wave profile keeps everything performing well!

As a robust, enclosed steel packer, the Cracker Disc roller copes easily with the most arduous of soil conditions, managing well also even on heavy, clayey soils, in addition to leaving a maximum crumbling effect, it ensures the opti-mum seedbed preparation.


Hydraulic top link increases flexibility

In order to utilise the soil tillage implement as a solo machine, Amazone now offers a swivel top link as an option for its AD pack top seed drill combinations. With the aid of a specific lever construction, the top link is rotated between the soil tillage implement and the seed drill in such a way that when the piston rod is extended, the seed drill is tilted forward. At this point the coulters and follow-ing harrow are lifted by a minimum of 100 mm and the tines of the...
