Amazone broadens mounted sprayer range

A low centre of gravity and an easy to clean tank are a couple of the features of the new ISObus compatible UF 1602 mounted sprayer.

Supporting the existing (2,000-litre) UF 2002, the smaller 1,600-litre model is available with the same boom widths from 15.0m to 30.0m. The centralised operating console is located behind the same hinged door on the left side of the machine as the new 60-litre induction bowl.

The optional Comfort-Pack allows for the remote control and automation of the liquid circuit. This comes complete with automatic fill stop of both the suction hose filling and, if fitted, also that of the bowser fill port.

During application, the agitation regulates itself automatically, depending on the tank level. As the fill level decreases, the agitation capacity reduces down eventually to a complete shut-off.

Auto-dynamic agitation control is also included. This means that, if a large application rate is required from the boom, the agitation capacity is automatically regulated down for a moment. Then, on the headland, as soon as all the nozzles are shut off, the agitation can then operate again at full capacity.

The Comfort-Pack enables the fully automatic cleaning to be controlled from the tractor cab. Like the UF2002, the 1602 can also be combined with the 1,000-litre FT 1001 front tank.
