Hier startet ein komplett mit D9-Sämaschinen beladener Lkw zu einer 7-tägigen Fahrt in die Region Xinjiang.

Die neue Niederlassung dient in erster Linie als Vertriebs- und Service-Stützpunkt und bietet zugleich die Möglichkeit, auch die Montage von Amazone-Maschinen direkt vor Ort durchzuführen. Das Gebäude der Niederlassung verfügt über 3.000 m² Hallenflächen. Das Investitionsvolumen beträgt rund eine Million Euro.

Schon jetzt ist die Nachfrage nach Amazone-Maschinen in China sehr positiv. Angeboten wird das gesamte Produktprogramm von Bodenbearbeitungsgeräten und Sämaschinen über Düngerstreuer bis hin zu Pflanzenschutzspritzen. Überdurchschnittlich gut werden bereits die Amazone-Sämaschinen und Einzelkornsämaschinen sowie das gesamte ZA-Düngerstreuerprogramm verkauft.

Ziel ist es nun, ausgehend von der Niederlassung eine schlagkräftige Vertriebsorganisation und ein flächendeckendes Händlernetz aufzubauen, um den Zukunftsmarkt China intensiv zu erschließen. Mittelfristig will Amazone hier ein Umsatzvolumen im zweistelligen Millionenbereich erreichen.

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.

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.

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...
