Amazone has developed the EasySet on-board computer that offers simple operation of the spreader from the tractor cab for its well-known ZA-M twin disc spreader series
Via the operator terminal, the shutter slides can be actuated electronically meaning that, on the headland, each aperture can be closed or opened at the press of a button. In wedge shaped fields, the driver can individually actuate either the right or left hand side. LED lights on the EasySet terminal indicate whether the shutter slides are open or closed. In addition, via the terminal, the application rate can be adjusted individually on the move to either side with the corresponding aperture size being shown on the display. So, the fertiliser rate can be very easily matched to the needs of the crop on the move.
The ZA-M Easy can be quickly mounted on the tractor as no hydraulic services are required for the shutter slide actuation and thus no hydraulic hoses have to be coupled, only the one cable. If a Limiter border spreading device is specified then a double-acting spool valve is necessary. In this case the position of the Limiter is indicated via an LED light in the EasySet box. The
ZA-M Easy is the perfect entry in to remote spreader operation at the press a button.
The ZA-M fertiliser spreader series includes three basic models with 1,000 l, 1,200 l and 1,500 l capacity hoppers respectively which can be upgraded to a maximum of 3,000 l with the aid of the relevant extensions. The slow-turning agitators provide a very even, gentle fertiliser flow. Working widths of 10 m to 36 m allow the very flexible application of the ZA-M Easy, making this twin disc spreader the ideal machine for many farms that place a big emphasis on easy handling and reliable fertiliser application.
