The ability to operate a ZA-V, or ZA-TS, fertiliser spreader mounted up front is a very interesting option, particularly for those users who are looking to spread two different types of fertiliser in one pass.
This option offers the opportunity to set up each spreader optimally to the properties of the relevant fertiliser and thus achieve the perfect lateral distribution for both fertilisers
When a mounted spreader is fitted to the front of a tractor, the spreading unit is not directed to the rear, but to the front. This means, that when operating the spreader, one has to think of everything as a mirror image. To relieve the operator of having to think like this, Amazone has developed in-house software for the front mounting of spreaders where the spreading functions are displayed in reverse.
In this way, even when side, border or water course spreading, the spreader can be switched on at the correct side without any problem. The software also mirrors the optional SwitchPoint on/off points. That means, on a front mounted spreader, the spread fan is pushed ahead of the machine so that the relevant switching point has to be positioned way in front of the spreader.
