Amazone fert spreaders get fresh in-cab terminal

Amazone’s new AmaSpread 2 in-cab monitor is now available for the ZA-V Profis Control fertiliser spreader.

The 4.3in colour display shows key information such as application rate, area covered and the quantity of product left in the hopper.

Each function has its own back-lit button, which the company says makes one-handed use easy, and means material-specific settings for up to 10 fertilisers can be stored and loaded at any time.

Other features include manual switching of up to six part-width sections and the use of the Profis weighing system, the accuracy of which can be improved with an optional tilt sensor. This helps maintain a constant application rate when using fertiliser of varying quality, and when working on hilly ground.

The firm’s Limiter V+ border spreading system allows operators to switch between side, boundary and watercourse modes without leaving the cab, and optional low-level sensors can be fitted to send an alert when the hopper nears empty.
