WindControl shortlisted for Best New Innovation Award at LAMMA 2018

ZG-TS
The anemometer is fitted to the spreader and receives real-time wind speed and direction and then adjusts the spread pattern if necessary

For spring 2018, AMAZONE offers, for the first time, WindControl (in accordance with Prof. Dr. Karl Wild, HTW Dresden) for the ZA-TS mounted and ZG-TS trailed spreaders. WindControl is an expansion of the ArgusTwin spread pattern monitoring system and a system that takes spreading accuracy to a new level. With ArgusTwin, the complete spread fan is being constantly monitored to either side by 14 radar sensors. In case of deviation from the optimum pattern, the lateral distribution is automatically corrected via an adjustment of the electric delivery system. This takes place each side individually and thus ensures the best lateral distribution across the whole spreader.
In areas that are particularly windy, AMAZONE now offers WindControl as a supplement to the ArgusTwin system. Via WindControl, the influence of wind on the spread pattern can also be constantly monitored and automatically compensated for.
A high frequency measuring wind sensor, fitted to the machine, registers both the wind speed and also the direction of wind and transfers this information to the machine’s ECU. According to this data, the job computer then calculates, in conjunction with the information from ArgusTwin, any new settings for both the delivery system and the spreading disc speeds which are then automatically acted upon. For side winds, the disc speed to the windward side is increased and the delivery system advanced whereas, at the same time, the disc speed on the leeward side is reduced and the delivery system retarded. In this way the influence of wind is automatically compensated for and thus an optimum lateral distribution is ensured.
With the aid of WindControl, larger operating windows are created for spreading under the influence of wind. Apart from all the important fertiliser spreader parameters, the driver has the real-time direction of the wind, the force of wind and if the wind is gusting always in view. In addition, in heavy winds, when the system is no longer able to compensate for, or when the wind gusts are too frequent, WindControl sends an automatic alarm to the driver. advising them to stop spreading
The wind sensor is automatically folded in or out when the spreading discs are switched on or off. However, it can also be manually folded in and out. When folded out, the wind sensor protrudes above the tractor so that measurements are not disturbed by turbulence around the tractor. When folded in, the wind sensor is positioned between tractor and spreader so that, during road travel, it cannot be damaged by low hanging tree branches. Plus, in addition, a protective cap covers the sensor so that it is protected from dirt flying off the tractor tyres.

When it comes to cultivation, it is flexibility that is needed so, whatever the application, the optimum depth of work and mixing effect can be achieved. Working stubbles shallow to promote an early chit is still a strong method of combating grass weed issues but there are times when, either due to poorer soil structures, or where we are looking to incorporate copious amounts of organic matter then deeper working with a tine is...

Catros+ 3003 SPECIAL goes eco-priced

The need for a specialist tool to carry out a quick, shallow stubble tilling post-combine for generating the perfect environment to persuade volunteers and weed seeds to grow has never been as important. And the main benefit of the Catros compact disc harrows is the fact that each individual disc assembly is mounted on its own rubber buffer blocks giving it the ability to contour follow - even at depths as little as 4-5 cm.

Push me - Pull you makes a come back

The ability to operate a ZA-V, or ZA-TS, fertiliser spreader mounted up front is an extremely interesting option, particularly for those users who are looking to spread two different types of fertiliser in one pass. As oppose to spreading blended fertilisers through just one rear-mounted spreader, this option offers the opportunity to set up each spreader optimally to the properties of the relevant fertiliser and thus to achieve the perfect lateral distribution for both...
