AmaPilot/AmaPilot+ multi-function joystick for vehicle and sprayer

Amazone Selbstfahrende Feldspritze Pantera 4502, Amapilot

Whether using the drive lever or operator controls for the spraying functions - with the multi-function joystick in the Pantera - many functions come safely and comfortably to one hand.
“Get in and drive off“ is the motto! Drive to the machine is infinitely variable and has an intuitive feel via the multifunction joystick. In cruise control, and with the maximum forward position of the multi-function joystick, the Pantera achieves speeds of up to 50 km/h on the road, and in the field, the pre-selected desired operating speed (the permissible maximum speed may vary, depending on the national road traffic regulations).
Pulling the control lever to the rear actuates the newly developed hydrostatic dual circuit braking. This automatically actuated hydraulic auxiliary braking assists the driver in all situations. The highest sensitivity on Startup and when manoeuvring is guaranteed. This is normally sufficient for a sensible reduction of the speed on the road or in the field. Only in exceptional cases does one need to operate the foot brake as well. You can also control the entire steering management via the AmaPilot/AmaPilot+ multi-function joystick:
on/off of the 4-wheel steer and manual dog-leg steer or re-alignment in sloping terrain are all possible.
Of course, many of the sprayer features can be operated via the multi-function joystick: Part-width section and boom control, additional functions such as boundary nozzle on/off and the +/- % spray rate increase button.

The benefits of AmaPilot:
+ Perfect ergonomics
+ Almost all the functions directly to hand via the 3 levels
+ Settable palm rest

Additional benefits with AmaPilot+ * :
+ Freely-assignable button layout
* Standard on Pantera with Tier IV engine emissions

Important information
Please note that when working with other ISOBUS terminals, additional Section Control software, for example, from the tractor manufacturer, is normally necessary. This is not usually included in the standard version of other ISOBUS terminals.

2-terminal solution
A twin-terminal solution with the simultaneous use of a tractor ISOBUS terminal and AMATRON 3 or CCI 100 is recommended if the tractor terminal does not support the Section Control function or if you intend to use the sprayer via AMATRON 3 or CCI 100 and a separate screen.

 

       

 

Pantera – with light-footed intelligence

Pantera Fahrwerk

The special tandem chassis of the Pantera not only ensures the perfect adaptation to ground undulations, but also a high stability – of course, especially in sloping terrain. Thanks to the level regulated hydro-pneumatic suspension, the Pantera operator also enjoys the maximum of comfort.
The combination of this unique chassis design and the proven AMAZONE boom suspension additionally ensures an optimally smooth boom ride even under arduous conditions.

The advantages of the Pantera chassis concept

+ Superbly strong frame with proven chassis components 
+ Pendulum frame for optimised soil contact and reduced slip 
+ Comfortable and safe driving behaviour from the longitudinal tandem 
+ Hydro-pneumatic suspension system with level regulation
+ Reliable hydraulic system – no air regulation 
+ Smooth boom ride, reinforced by additional boom parallel damping 
+ Infinitely variable track width adjustment  
+ Large ground clearance
+ Headland management for both steering and boom functions means stress relief for the driver and gentle boom treatment 
+ Narrow transport width, compact in road traffic

Traction control as standard

The drive torque of the four wheel motors is constantly electronically monitored and regulated ensuring the optimum vehicle behaviour even under difficult conditions. Power-hunger, physical differential locks are omitted. Auf dem In the field, even in wet conditions, you will always comfortably get through. However, also on the road ASR always ensures a safe trip.

Weight distribution at the optimum!

Pantera 4502

The even weight transfer to the front and rear wheels is the ideal pre-condition for efficient traction. 
This is why the Pantera 4502 features, with a full tank, an optimum weight distribution of approximately 50 % - 50 % to each the front and rear axle. Depending on the tank level and the boom type, the weight distribution varies only by around 5%.

Nearly unbounded – exceptional ground clearance

Pantera Bodenfreiheit

The big ground clearance of 1.20 m also proves to be an important advantage for the Pantera in practice. With
Pantera-H, a ground clearance of even 1.70 m. This is an advantage that is of benefit for you especially when spraying rape at flowering, or even also in taller maize crops – a more gentle plant treatment can hardly be  possible.

Steering management: It has to be manoeuvrable, compact and flexible!

Amazone Pflanzenschutzselbstfahrer Pantera 4502 Wendigkeit

In spite of the vehicle size, the minimal turning circle of the Pantera is only 4.50 m when in 4-wheel steer. This is helped by a short wheelbase and sharp steering angle. With this superb manoeuvrability, the daily acreage outputs can be optimised enormously, especially in small fields. The switching between 4-wheel and 2-wheel steer is carried out via the multi-function joystick.
The “dog leg steer” function facilitates perfect operation to keep within the wheel marks, even when working on sloping terrain. The steering re-adjustment is also done via pressing a button on the multi- function joystick. Also, in wet conditions and on sensitive soils, the off-set track driving using the dog leg steer proves to be a decisive advantage.

Be relaxed when working – even on the headland

The Pantera shows its intelligence even on the headland: Once the headland-management is activated in the AMADRIVE terminal, the all-wheel steer is automatically switched on when the sprayer is switched off and when the boom is raised. After switching on again, out from the headland, the two-wheel steer again ensures the perfect boom ride.
The speed-related regulation of the all-wheel steer is the guarantee of optimised horizontal boom guidance. At speeds of more than 8 km/h the steering angle is automatically reduced, preventing an extreme acceleration of the boom in the direction of travel. 
As a special option, AMAZONE offers solutions for GPS assisted automatic steering. This enables you to obtain an exact track-to-track accuracy of only a few centimetres.

Track width adjustment in no time at all

Amazone Selbstfahrende Feldspritze Pantera 4502, Spurweitenverstellung

The fully automatic track width adjustment, fitted as standard, enables you, for example as a contractor, to react quickly on the various demands of the different customers. Once the desired track width has been pre- selected, the exact centimetre precise setting is carried out automatically.

To protect the drive gearboxes these are provided with additional covers.  

 

Central lubrication system

Amazone Pflanzenschutzselbstfahrer Pantera Pantera 4502 Zentralschmieranlage

The fully automatic central lubrication system ensures that the correct maintenance schedule is adhered to, yet with a minimum of downtime and expenditure. With the Pantera, all the grease points are covered including the parallelogram frames.

Drive-line management with optimised fuel efficiency

Amazone Selbstfahrende Feldspritze Pantera 4502, Deutz-Motor

The powerful Deutz 6-cylinder diesel engine with Common-Rail injection technology provides 218 HP and impresses by its high performance yet low fuel consumption. Thanks to the modern hydrostatic drive mechanism, you can drive the Pantera with absolute infinite variability.
This system allows, even at a low engine speeds, high start-up torques and a very dynamic acceleration.

Deutz 6-cylinder diesel engine with a maximum output of 160 kW (218 HP)
+ Turbocharger with intercooler
+ Common-Rail injection technology
+ 6.06 litres capacity
+ Country-specific compliance to 3A or 4 engine emission

+ Infinitely variable hydrostatic drive from 0 to 50 km/h (the permissible maximum speed may vary, depending on the local road traffic regulations)
+ State-of-the-art fuel management on the road and in the field with ECO and POWER mode
+ Tailor-made speed regulated radiator fan drive
+ Proven Deutz technology with a comprehensive service network 

New exhaust gas level Tier IV engine

With this new engine, AMAZONE relies on exhaust gas recirculation with a diesel oxidation catalyst and diesel particulate filter – all of which help in saving the environment. The diesel particulate filter is continuously regenerating during operation. The SCR catalytic converter reduces, with the aid of a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) injection, the levels of nitrogen oxide. The new 20 litre DEF tank is positioned at the side of the 230 litre diesel tank. The DEF consumption amounts to approximately 2.5 % of the fuel consumption, meaning that the DEF tank only requires refilling every 3 or 4 diesel tank fills.   

Operation at optimum fuel saving: ECO and POWER

The new and optimised engine revs regulation enables you to operate the Pantera always at the optimum fuel consumption efficiency. If ECO mode has been selected in the AMADRIVE terminal, the engine searches for the optimum operating point for torque and revs, depending on the relevant driving situation.
When spraying on the flat, an engine rev reduction down to 950 RPM is possible. The automatic rev adaptation takes place constantly and sensibly between 950 and 2,000 RPM.

If, however, you are working on steep slopes in hilly terrain, reinstate maximum efficiency of up to 2,000 RPM via the POWER mode.

Of course, also the low unladen weight of the Pantera 4502 (9,900 kg with a 24 metre boom)  is an advantage for a low fuel consumption. So, the fuel tank volume of 230 litres enables high work rates over long days.

The benefits of a clever cooling system:

Pantera 4502 Kühlung

+ revs on demand
+ at low power requirement and cool temperatures the fans are even switched off
+ layout beyond the reach of dirt
left hand: charge air, hydraulics
right hand: engine, air-conditioning   

Brake-management: Your safety is paramount!

Pantera 4502 Bremsen

When the speed is reduced the hydrostatic dual circuit braking of the Pantera is activated and elegantly brakes the vehicle down to a complete stop.
Especially noticeable here is that with the hydrostatic deceleration of the vehicle the built-in trailer braking system is also energised early.
With this technology you always brake safely on the road. The air braking system is an important safety feature that enables safe braking, for example, on an emergency stop from 50 km/h or with a filled water tanker on behind (the permissible maximum speed may vary, depending on the local road traffic regulations).

Pantera - flexible intelligence

Amazone Pflanzenschutzselbstfahrer Pantera 4502

There is a clear division of responsibilities for the high quality Linde hydraulic pumps. Because of the large diameter wheels, very high torques are needed, especially when starting off from stationary. The intelligent drive concept of the Pantera doesn’t build up these high forces hydraulically but translates these into mechanical forces via the planetary gearboxes. This makes for a guaranteed drive when working in unfavourable ground conditions and when driving off. The electrically adjustable wheel motors are, depending on the driving situation, always optimally set, no matter whether maximum torque or maximum revs are required.

Quick running hydrostatic transmission with reduction gear at the wheel
+ High torque at all time
+ No speed change steps 
+ Possibility of larger wheel diameters
+ The adjustable axial piston pump delivers the oil flow to the hydro motor 
+ Every hydro motor is individually speed regulated (traction control) 
+ A fixed reduction ratio in the planetary gear drives the wheel

Pantera+ drive concept – powerful intelligence

With the Pantera+, AMAZONE offers a drive concept that is particularly suitable for that extreme terrain found in hilly areas. The standard drive wheel gearboxes, across all of the Pantera range, are replaced by an alternative gearbox with a drive ratio of 1:30 (instead of 1:23.5). Due to these alternative gearboxes, the Pantera+ has a smaller drive ratio and so therefore, if required, considerably more torque.

The benefits of the Pantera+ drive concept:
+ Up to 25 % more climbing ability
+ Copes on slopes up to 34 %

 

Intelligent spray liquid management: integrated into the total concept

Amazone Pflanzenschutzselbstfahrer Pantera 4502 Behälter

The 4,500 litre spray agent tank (actual volume 4,800 litre), deeply positioned in the frame, ensures a favourable centre of gravity and an even weight transmission on to all four wheels of the Pantera. The spray agent and fresh water tank consist of high grade glass fibre reinforced plastic with smooth internal and external walls. The low positioned outlet sump ensures smallest residual volumes even in sloping terrain.  The electronic fill-level indication and the four rotating high pressure nozzles for the internal cleaning are part of the standard equipment.
The 500 litre rinse tank with fill-level indicator is located at the rear of the Pantera.

Everything safely stowed!

Pantera Staufach

In a special compartment underneath the cab there is sufficient space for the convenient storage, for example, of the suction hose. In addition, the bowser fill port, with automatic fill-stop as standard, is located in the under-cab storage locker.
The dust proof toolbox is located under the access into the cab. Here, a hand wash tank and soap dispenser are also fitted.

Induction bowl and power injector

Powdery substances and large quantities of urea are dissolved quickly and safely by the induction bowl with the rinse ring and additional nozzle, and simultaneously inducted by the power injector. The extraction and cleaning from large containers can be greatly simplified by using the Ecofill connection.

Canister rinsing with the aid of the induction bowl

Amazone Pflanzenschutzselbstfahrer 4502, Kanister Spülen

To ensure unproblematic cleaning of spray agent canisters and to fully utilise its content, the canister is flushed using the rotary nozzle. Of course, the closed induction bowl can also be flushed for self-cleaning. The induction bowl when closed is dust-proof. No dirt enters the system and no liquid escapes.

High capacity pumps

The twin high-performance piston diaphragm pumps (520 l/min.) ensure that the spraying process can even be conducted at high volumes and speeds and that sufficient agitator capacity is always available.
The pump speed can be adjusted from choice within a range of 380 to 580 rpm. This enables you to drive with low revs, for example, at low application rates. The spray pump can be switched on and off at the operator station.

Bowser fill port with automatic fill stop

Amazone Selbstfahrende Feldspritze Pantera 4502, Befüllanschluss mit automatischen Befüllstopp

The bowser fill port is located conveniently in the undercab storage locker alongside where the suction hose can also be stored. Thanks to the automatic fill stop, any unintentional overfilling of the main spray tank, either via the suction hose or through the bowser fill port, can be prevented. This position for the bowser fill port offers the possibility of filling the sprayer, with either pre-mixed spray chemical or liquid fertiliser, on the headland without having the need to fold the boom in.

Comfort-Pack options

Pantera 4502 Comfort-Pakete

With the Comfort-Pack, the Pantera features professional equipment for the automation of the spray agent liquid circuit. Control of the most important functions of the spray agent circuit (filling, agitator intensity and cleaning) are all carried out remotely via the terminal.
In this way the desired filling amount can be pre-selected and the filling procedure is automatically isolated. The “Rührmatic” system provides a continuous, fill-level dependent adaptation of the agitation intensity. When drawing in fresh water, the agitators are automatically shut off. For the treatment of the remaining area, the targeted addition of fresh water is possible. With the flushing function, the booms can be cleaned without changing the original concentration. The automatic cleaning provides a reliable dilution of residual amounts and internal tank cleaning.
In addition to this automatic control you can also actuate all the functions by hand on the operator station. Alternatively, as an option, a bowser fill port is available.

Comfort-Pack 2
This new option, with additional fresh water pump for more comfort when filling and cleaning, is quicker, washes out even cleaner and yet is still simple.
All functions of the Comfort-Pack 2 are operated via the AMADRIVE.
An additional display at the operator station helps input the desired fill levels from ground level.

The benefits of Comfort-Pack 2:
+ Completely automatic cleaning procedure with continuous internal cleaning.
+ Just couple the suction hose once and both the spray agent tank and the fresh water tank are automatically filled.
+ Fresh water is immediately available when canister flushing and for the external wash down kit which are thus always ready to start.

The DUS pressure recirculation system – proven more than 10,000 times

The AMAZONE DUS pressure recirculation system guarantees the safe circulation within the entire system. When starting the spraying operation all the hoses including the spray lines are filled under pressure in the reverse direction with the mixed spray agent. This means the spray lines are always full and immediately ready to use over the entire working width. There is no waiting on the headland.

Every time individual part-width sections are shut off, during the turning operation and during transport, the spray liquid circulates continually thanks to the pressure recirculation system. This reliably prevents deposits, blockages or segregation in the spray lines.

The concentration of the spray agent always remains constant right up to the nozzles, so the start of spraying is carried out without any problems after, for example, a change of ingredients.

During the cleaning operation, fresh water flushes the spray lines out right up to the nozzles without any spraying being necessary. During this cleaning procedure the concentrated spray liquid is returned back to tank via the pressure recirculation system leaving the spray lines clean.

Your benefits:
+ Direct electric control of the nozzle body
+ Every nozzle body is integrated in the DUS pressurerecirculation system!

Super-L2 boom

Pantera 4502 Super-L2-Gestänge

On the Pantera self-propelled sprayer the Super-L2 boom proves its extraordinary qualities. Thanks to the special AMAZONE profile design, it is not only light and extremely sturdy but also very compact. Even with the maximum boom width of 40 m the transport width is still only 2.55 m. In the transport position the booms are located behind the cab. That means: No obstruction of the driver’s view and no dripping liquid within reach of the cab.
Premium boom quality ensures a long service life even when working at very high work rates.

Your benefits:
+ Tried and tested modular system of the Super-L2 boom ranging from 24 m to 40 m, extremely sturdy and durable
+ Wide height adjustment range of 0.50 m to 2.50 m
+ Central pendulum adjustment and hydraulic tilt adjustment of the boom provide smooth boom travel even at high speeds
+ Standard: Profi-fold 1 - independent, one sided folding that is flexible in all working widths
+ Option: tip angling (Profi-fold 2)
+ Option: DistanceControl for automatic boom ride height

 

Even better with Profi-fold

Pantera Profiklappung

All hydraulic functions can be easily and reliably controlled via AMATRON 3 in the tractor cab. The multi- function joystick makes handling especially comfortable.

Profi-fold I:
Height adjustment, folding in and out, independent, one side folding at reduced speeds (max. 6 km/h), boom width reduction, and tilt adjustment.

Profi-fold II:
In addition with variable geometry, individual boom tip angling.

External wash down kit and internal cleaning

Pantera 4502 Wascheinrichtung

The internal cleaning system with seven rotating nozzles provides the best of cleaning performances inside the tank.
Via the spray lance on its 20 m long hose, the trailed sprayer can be thoroughly cleaned externally immediately after operation whilst still in the field. The high-pressure spray lance with its delivery capacity of only 17 l/min works at an operating pressure of 10 bar.
In addition, a 20 litre handwash tank with soap dispenser is supplied.

 

Less drift also at higher wind speeds

Pantera Düsen

With the air-assisted injector nozzles, crop protection agents can be applied with very little drift. They are universally usable in all crops and all classifications. Because of the coarse droplet application, These nozzles can also be used in higher wind speeds. AMAZONE offers the agricultural sector a wide range of
nozzles from Agrotop, Lechler and Teejet.

Single and multi-nozzle bodies
The nozzle bodies with integrated diaphragm non-return anti-drip valves fit up into the boom profiles reliably preventing any dripping at the nozzle. Self-adjusting bayonet fixings ensure a tool-less quick nozzle change. The triple nozzle bodies are suited to frequent nozzle changes due to different applications and crops. Nozzle protection tubes, as standard on the outer sections, or, if desired, over the entire boom working width, ensures protection for long injector nozzles and multiple nozzle bodies.

The correct nozzle selection . . .

Pantera Düsenwahl

The long injector nozzles (ID, AI, TTI) have a relatively coarse droplet spectrum and are particularly versatile with regard to their field of application. A pressure range of 2-8 bar is possible. If coverage quality is at the foreground of the application, the use of standard or anti-drift fine droplet nozzles, such as XR or AD, is recommended. Special care is required here due to the tendency to drift above 3 bar.
A good compromise is provided by the modern ID-K or Airmix compact injector nozzles: These have relatively little drift, but do not have too coarse a droplet spectrum and are operated at 2 – 4 bar.
When it comes to special coverage qualities the double flat fan nozzle is an interesting alternative: the AVI Twin from Agrotop also produces droplets that are not too fine. The split spray pattern ensures a more even deposit on the front and back of the plant and is an interesting alternative in many applications. For speeds > 10 km /h the TD HiSpeed nozzle and its asymmetrical spraying angle is becoming a new industry trend.

Assessment from users regarding the AMAZONE-self propelled sprayer

Pantera Thomsen

Since 2008, contractor Holger Thomsen has operated an AMAZONE self-propelled sprayer across more than 5000 ha per year: "As a contractor, one has to use the technology that customers do not have themselves. Therefore, for plant protection only a self propelled sprayer is worth considering for us." 

Holger Thomsen´s experiences with
- the all-wheel steer of the self propelled sprayer: "When turning at the headland, we only leave two tracks with the self propelled sprayer, that means,  We do not do so much damage in growing crops." 
- the hydro-pneumatically suspended tandem chassis of the self propelled sprayer: "It compensates ground undulations better. This results in a very even boom ride."
- the ground clearance of 1.10 m: "It plays a part, for example, at flowering treatment in rape, because the plants are hardly damaged." 
- the drive line of the self propelled sprayer: "With the infinitely variable hydrostatic drive line and the 200 HP engine the self propelled sprayer is well equipped to maintain speeds on the road but also in the field without any problem. Engine and drive line are suited for the size of this machine."  
- the hydraulically adjustable track width of the self propelled sprayer: "It proves to be of advantage, for example in spring, for herbicide treatment in maize. If, in future, some customers want to convert their maize crops to narrow spacing, such an easily to handle track width adjustment is actually absolutely essential.“
