With its complete range AMAZONE now offers the perfect machine for all relevant farming applications. All models have in common that they can be operated, both following conventional or conservation soil tillage or for direct seeding. This applies equally as well when sowing maize, sunflowers and rape.
The use of the mounted EDX precision air seeder is recommended for seasonal outputs of maybe 400 up to 700 ha in smaller sized fields. If it is intended to combine maize sowing with under-root fertilisation, one can choose between a machine with a rear integrated fertiliser hopper; the EDX 6000-2C, or with front fertiliser hopper, the EDX 6000-2FC. For seeding without under-root fertilisation an additional machine, the EDX 6000-2, is available The tractors should have an engine power from 170 HP/125 kW and a sufficiently large lift capacity.
The trailed EDX 6000-TC and 9000-TC are ideally suited to large sized fields. Experience in practice shows that with an EDX 9000-TC, depending on the farm, a seasonal output of up to 1,500 ha is possible whereas with, for the smaller EDX 6000-TC, the value amount to approx. 900 ha respectively. For operating the EDX 9000-TC, tractors with engine power from 250 HP/180 KW should be used and for the EDX 6000-TC, from 170 HP/125 kW.
