From the terminal, the operator can electronically control the shutter slides, which is handy on a headland as each aperture can be adjusted at the press of a button.

No hydraulic services are needed for the new box, with only one electric cable required.

There is also a limiter boarder spreading device that works via LED lights in the EasySet box, however this does require a double acting spool valve.

The ZA-M spreader range has three basic models with 1,000-, 1,200- and 1,500-litre capacities, with upgrades to 3,000-litres with hopper extensions, while working widths from 10m to 36m are possible.
