As an alternative to the more common hydraulic shutter actuation found on the entry-level ZA-V fertiliser spreaders, AMAZONE now offers the EasySet 2 in-cab terminal. EasySet 2 offers electric shutter operation at the push of a button. No hydraulic connections are required for the shutter actuation, but just a 12 V power connection for the in-cab terminal.
The EasySet 2 in-cab terminal does not require menu navigation. This means that each button only has one function making it very easy to use. In this way, the shutter slides can be opened and closed electrically on both sides or just to one side when spreading in short work. The desired application rate is entered into the terminal and can be changed in single increments or in increments of ten during the spreading process. This eliminates the need to climb down from the tractor and manually adjust the setting scale on the back of the machine.
The new EasySet 2 is able to adjust the shutter position in combination with a speed signal and thus can react to a change in forward speed by automatically adjusting the size of the outlet opening in relation to forward speed. This means that the application rate remains constant even at varying forward speeds.
If the Limiter V+ electric border spreading device is being used for border spreading, it can be actuated at the push of a button on the EasySet 2. By means of plus and minus keys, it can be also adjusted in height and so strongly influences the effect on the fertiliser to varying degrees in its throwing range. In this way, it is very convenient to switch, from the tractor cab, between side, border and water course spreading or to optimise those respective settings without leaving the cab.
In addition, EasySet 2 has an integrated hectare meter so that the user always has an overview of the machine output.
