Joining the existing UF 901 and UF 1201, the UF 1002 (nominal volume 1,000 litres/actual volume 1,100 litres) and UF 1302 (nominal volume 1,300 litres/actual volume 1,400 litres), can both be used with the laterally-folding Q-Plus booms (12.0m to 15.0m) or the vertically-folding Super-S1 or S2 booms (15.0m to 30.0m).

The compact design of the specially formed polyethylene tank on the new models keeps the distance between the lower link coupling points and the boom to a minimum. Despite this close spacing, the quick coupling system provides comfortable and safe mounting and demounting, says Amazone. A parking system is supplied as standard.

Located behind a large swing door on the left-hand side, the spray liquid circuit is managed via the SmartCenter operator station. Also located behind the same swing door is the 60-litre induction bowl where clean water is always available during both suction and pressure filling.

Furthermore, it is possible to fill the fresh water tank when suction filling via the in-house developed, seven-way pressure tap. A dust-proof storage compartment over the induction bowl is integrated into the machine design for personal protective equipment.

The optional Comfort-Pack not only enables remote control and automation of the spray liquid circuit, but also facilitates full automatic cleaning after use. This can be carried out from the tractor cab. The UF 02 can also be supplied ex-factory with continuous internal cleaning.

The UF 1002 and 1302 can be used with either the FT 1001 or FT 1502 front tank, increasing the capacity by 1,000 or 1,500 litres.
