Following the success of the 2019 Krone BigM ‘Mowing the Country’ campaign Farmhand have set out to raise awareness of the new Amazone ZG-TS 10001 trailed fertiliser spreader.
The new ZG-TS 01 trailed spreader, in hopper capacities of either 7,500 l or 10,000 l, capable of working widths of up to 54 m and operational speeds of up to 30 km/h, provides the means for even higher outputs.
Focussing on the importance of precision, in terms of efficiency, profit and protecting the environment this 2020 campaign will demonstrate how accurate the Amazone spreaders are.
At a glance the standout features of the Amazone ZG-TS 01 include headland control in the form of Auto TS Border Spreading System, an important part of managing fertiliser spread and safe-guarding against the contamination of hedges and waterways, while also reducing fertiliser wastage. The in-cab adjustment of the telescopic vein to ‘headland’ position adjusts to a shorter, straight edge vein that allows fertiliser to be spread evenly up to the field edge and no further. The headland is the largest part of any field, so this level of accuracy is extremely important.
An ergonomic design allows for the largest steering angle available on the market ensuring the spreader stays well within your wheel tracks, as well as allowing for much of the weight to stay on the back of the tractor. The hopper is attached to the frame of the spreader by 4 weigh cells enabling the spreader to accurately weigh the remaining volume of fertiliser while driving allowing for accurate control of the application rate.
These are just some of the ZG-TS features designed to increase output, maximise precision and make the job easier all round for farmers and contractors. To find out more follow the Farmhand facebook page and keep your eyes out for the Amazone ZG-TS 01 on the road over the next couple of months.
Farmhand’s ‘Spreading the Word’ Amazone demonstration campaign was officially launched on Wednesday 22nd of January.
