Amazone FT 1502 front tank for UF 1602 and UF 2002
The cost-effective mini ‘self-propelled sprayer’ – up to 3,500 l with fill level management
The FT 1001 front tank has been a favourite from Amazone for several years. Now the choice of front tank has been extended with the introduction of the new FT 1502 to the range. The FT 1502 front tank used in conjunction with the UF 02 gives an increase of 1500l to the tank capacity. The option FlowControl+ and its compact design make the front tank the ideal extension for a mounted sprayer.
Thoughtful construction for maximum safety
This compact combination is manoeuvrable on its own transport wheels making it easy to store. Its easy handling is proven with increased manoeuvrability in small or awkward shaped fields and when in transport, particularly on narrow country lanes. The ample 350l clean water tank on the UF 02 facilitates the thorough cleaning of the complete sprayer combination.
FlowControl+ fill level management
Another special feature of the FT 1502 is the 100% integration of the front tank into the rear sprayer using the FlowControl+ electronic fill level management via an ISOBUS terminal. The technology behind the FlowControl+ is two electronic fill level sensors in the front and the rear tanks and two high-performance venturis. These venturis are powered by an additional 150 l/min pump mounted on the UF. The transfer rate in each direction is up to 200 l/min. Liquid is continuously transferred between the front and rear tanks ensuring that the spray agent is always optimally mixed. The ISOBUS terminal automatically controls the liquid levels, so that the weight distribution is always kept at the optimum. Any premature reduction of the load on the front axle is prevented and, furthermore, FlowControl+ ensures that both tanks are automatically fully filled during the filling process and emptied during the spraying process. Both tanks are cleaned out at the end.
Manual control also makes it possible to switch off the FlowControl+ automatic function and so use the front tank only for transporting additional rinsing water or usable water for subsequent spraying. The FlowControl+ pump provides additional practical support during the filling process of the UF 02, so that a maximum fill speed of up to 400 l/min is possible with the overall combination.
An interesting alternative to a self-propelled sprayer
The combination of a UF 02 and a FT 1502 wrapped around a modern tractor and with a tank capacity of up to 3,500 l offers an interesting alternative to a self-propelled sprayer. The advantages of this self-propelled combination are the price and the additional availability of the tractor for other work.
With the Amazone FT 1502 front tank, the UF 2002 can be extended up to a capacity of 3,500 litres.
