Irrespective of the amount of fertiliser being spread on a farm, it is an expensive commodity that needs to be accurately applied. The ZA-M range of spreaders has been at the forefront of fertiliser spreading on British farms for decades and the simple mix of gentle fertiliser handling with the SBS – Soft ballistic System – and the high quality components made from stainless steel and plastic make it both easy on the fertiliser and easy on the pocket.
For those growers looking at 36m plus tramlines, maybe automatic SectionControl on headlands, plus 3 or 4 tonne hopper capacities, then the new ZA-V and ZA-TS spreader ranges offer the higher levels of technology. However, with a payload of 1800 kgs and for those just wishing to carry 3 x 600 kg bags and calibrate either manually or via an on-line weighing system then the ‘Best Buy’ currently is either the limited edition ZA-M ecoSPECIAL or ZA-M Profis ecoSPECIAL.
The ZA-M ecoSPECIAL deal includes road lights, guard rail, calibration kit, OM 10-16 spreading discs, half-side hydraulic shut-off, TS 5-9 left hand border spreading disc, two S500 hopper extensions and a folding hopper cover.
The ZA-M Profis ecoSPECIAL deal also includes road lights, guard rail, calibration kit, OM10-16 spreading discs, hydraulic half-side shut-off, two S500 hopper extensions and a folding hopper cover. Plus, on the weigh-cell offer, a Limiter MR in-cab actuated border spreading device and the Profis weighing system, which comes with an AMATRON 3 in-cab terminal, tractor base equipment and a 7 pin speed signal cable included. The AMATRON 3 can be used with other AMAZNE equipment.
With the ZA-V 2600 Amazone has supplemented its ZA-V fertiliser spreader range by a new model with a hopper capacity of 2,600 litres. So, the full range now encompasses seven models with hopper volumes from 1,700 right through to 4,200 litres.
Despite its large hopper volume, the ZA-V 2600 features a compact design. Thanks to an overall total width of just 2.58 m, it does not protrude beyond the tractor. Nevertheless the hopper maintains a large filling width of 2.22 m, so that it can still easily be filled via a front end loader.
The welded, one-piece hopper extension of the ZA-V 2600, which is fitted onto the 700 litre base hopper, is characterised by smooth inner walls and a high rigidity at a low nett weight. For the safe climbing in and out of the hopper, the extension features internal steps on both the left and right hand side. Special sight glass windows on the front and rear sides of the hopper provide an excellent view inside. And to ensure safe access from the outside of the hopper, a ladder is provided as standard for the ZA-V 2600.
The hopper capacity of five existing models of the ZA-V range can now be subsequently increased with the aid of hopper extensions. This offers the possibility that the spreader can grow together with the farm or the size of the husbandry tractor. The additional volume of the bolt-on extension suitable for the narrow S-extensions as found on the ZA-V 1700 and 2000 models is 600 litres whereas for the wider L-extensions such as the ZA-V 2200, 2700 and 3200 models it is 800 litres. And also on these hopper extensions, the roll-over hopper cover can be fitted.
