He who weighs, wins: ZA-M Profis weigh cell spreader
No calibration required. Enter the spread rate and drive off! It couldn't be simpler. The weighing frame of the ZA-M Profis with a payload of up to 3100 kg gives you even more precision and capacity.
The weighing system offers controlled comfort and even more reliability. It determines the different properties of the spreading material on-line using a weigh cell – and extremely accurately. It automatically compares the actual quantity that has been spread with the specified quantity. Differences in flow behaviour, e.g. with heterogeneous mineral fertilisers, are detected and the spreader automatically readjusts itself via the electric dosing shutter. The quantity applied is also precisely documented for the purpose of field-related nutritional balance.
The sturdy weighing frame is integrated in such a way that neither the centre of gravity distance nor the filling height are increased.
For a balanced nutrient supply, the spread rate calibration value can be adjusted via the AMATRON 3 on-board computer at the push of a button. The quantity can also be adjusted automatically according to the quantity of pure nitrogen already absorbed using additional on-line N-sensor technology.
Safety-Set as standard with all ZA-M
The AMAZONE ZA-M with the new Safety-Set provides additional safety. Working equipment that is hitched to fast-moving tractors must be clearly recognisable in road traffic. AMAZONE has integrated the strict safety requirements into a modern design.
The additional mud flaps (standard in ZA-M Profis and ZA-M Ultra) ensure that no dirt can be thrown onto the spreading discs from the tractor wheels. Large warning signs at the rear and the lighting system make the tractor and spreader combination more noticeable. The surrounding safety guard complies with the accident prevention regulations.
Electronic control with AMATRON 3
ZA-M with Tronic Pack:
The ZA-M Tronic Pack with mechanical or hydraulic drive of the spreading system is available for forward-speed related independent rate control (kg/ha) and control operation of the Limiter border spreading device and the weigh cell (standard at ZA-M Profis).
ZA-M Profis with Comfort Pack
The optional Comfort package provides maximum operating convenience by means of electro-hydraulic control of all operating functions using AMATRON 3.
Because of its large display and its clear, simple and logical operation, the AMATRON 3 is extremely user-friendly. All functions can be operated with the one hand whilst the other hand stays on the steering wheel.
With the AMATRON 3 AMAZONE offers a machine overlapping operator terminal for fertiliser spreaders, field sprayers and seed drills and allows the optimised rate control and monitoring. Depending on the driving situation and your personal preference, you can select either the machine or the GPS functionality as detailed view. AMATRON 3 is fully downward compatible to AMATRON+ and upwardly compatible to the ISOBUS Standard providing a bridge between the non-ISOBUS and the ISOBUS world.
Benefit from AMADOS+ and AMATRON 3
• The preselected spread rate always remains the same whatever the optimum working speed selected. This is particularly beneficial with tractors with a variable transmission
• Quantity changes can be made variably to both sides or just one side with this modern operator control terminal in order to save money and protect the environment
• Robust actuator motors on the rate shutters adjust the spread rate
• The hydraulic shutters of the double shutter control system are operated independently of the electronic rate shutter. This is quicker, and protects the electronic actuator motors
• All electronic components are protected from water ingress and corrosion
• The speed is recorded using sensor systems or the tractor signal socket
• Simple calibration program with independent rate setting determination
• Robust sensor equipment for function monitoring, e.g. of the shutter position
• Can be extended to other applications, e.g. as a hectare counter during manure spreading, cultivation or mowing with a separate working position sensor
• 100% button for convenient the home position locating
• Serial interface available for documentation and the connection of N-sensors and GPS-terminal supplied application maps for site-specific fertilisation
• Job memory for up to 99 field records
Stainless steel spreading system
The entire spreading system of the ZA-M spreaders is made from stainless steel:
• the hopper tips and agitator spirals
• the entire base plates with setting rate slides and hydraulic shutters
• the spreading discs with the spreading vanes
• the fully enclosed deflector plates
• Easy to maintain due to open design of spreader
• Perfect functionality due to the maintenance-free oil bath gearboxes, stainless steel chain drive for agitator shaft, hydraulic cylinders and robust frame
The OM Omnia-Set spreading discs are equipped with pivoting spreading vanes that generate a spread pattern that is extremely precise and safe. With the aid of an easily readable scale that is in the user's field of view, the spreading vanes can be adjusted easily and exactly, without tools. AMAZONE provides comprehensive setting charts for all kinds of fertiliser, seed and slug pellets. The OM Omnia-Set spreading discs are made from stainless steel and are easy to fit.
Late top dressing is advantageous for generating quality crops. With the AMAZONE spreading discs this procedure is extremely easy to do without tools by just tilting up the standard equipped swivel tips on the spreading vanes. Optimum lateral distribution (example: working width 24 m).
The flat side edges of the Omnia-Set spread pattern make it insensitive to side wind and the different spreading properties of the kinds of fertiliser. This triangular spread pattern with its long, low flat spread and therefore large overlapping zones is decisive for providing additional safety and optimum precision.
Simple, tool-less spread rate adjustment.
The spread rate and the working width are preselected from the extremely comprehensive setting chart. Clear, easy to read scales help you to set the spread rate exactly using the shutter slide.
SBS – Soft Ballistic System
Mineral fertiliser needs to be gently handled to ensure a precise distribution and an exact placement to the plant over the entire working width. Fertiliser, which has been damaged whilst going through the spreader, will not be precisely distributed.
The AMAZONE Soft Ballistic System is integrated into all ZA-M mounted spreaders where the agitator, metering components and spreading discs are all optimally matched to protect the fertiliser and ensure yield.
Double shutter control system
The double shutter control system with rate (1) and on/off shutters (2) can be operated independently of each other. The double acting hydraulic slides ensure an instantaneous opening and closing of the shutters at the ends of the field. So, the fertiliser is available at the full amount right from the start. For forward speed related spread rate control via AMADOS+ or AMATRON 3 only the metering shutter slides are actuated by the electric setting motors, for example for the slight correction of fertiliser rates.
The oil-immersed gearbox is the indestructible heart of this AMAZONE twin disc spreader. Double sealed and with shear bolt overload protection on the PTO the AMAZONE gearboxes have been proven by the hundreds of thousands and are maintenance-free.
This hose cabinet protects all tractor connections from soiling.
Optimum fertilisation does not just involve fertiliser and spreaders! Competent advice about critical types of fertiliser is just as important.
You can obtain the latest setting values for lateral distribution and spread rates for the AMAZONE fertiliser spreaders from our database on the internet at www.amazone.de, 24 hours a day and free of charge. To do this, just select your machine model and the spreading material.
Safety regulations for fertiliser spreaders from 2009
So as to comply with current legislation, all disc fertiliser spreaders for delivery into the European Community must be equipped with a guard tube from 2009 on. This guideline is binding for all manufacturers of disc fertiliser spreaders. AMAZONE offers the appropriate retrofit kits for the ZA-M and ZA-X Perfect fertiliser spreaders. Also new is the need to ensure that the shutter slides are locked in the closed position during road transport: AMAZONE meets this demand, for instance on the ZA-M, with double acting rams on the shutter slides or for the ZA-X via the two way valve.
