Amazone releases new new UX 01 trailed sprayers

The Amazone UX01 Super series of trailed sprayers boasts a completely new operating concept and innovative boom guidance systems

Initially offered with tank volumes of 6200, 5200, or 4200 litres and Super-L2 booms from 27 to 40 metres, all models feature a covered underbelly that allows plants to pass smoothly underneath the machine.

Claas Harvest Centre product manager (Amazone) Blair McAlwee says the new series features sleek European styling and smart functionality. "One of the most striking features of the UX01 Super are the grey covers on either side of the sprayer," he says.

"Underneath the left-hand cover is the SmartCenter, which hosts the operator station, induction bowl, fill ports, and two dustproof storage compartments," he says.

"Under the right-hand cover is an additional 240-litre lockable storage compartment with removable shelf. Both covers swing upwards to allow easy filling and operation. An optional LED lighting package mounted underneath the covers allows easy operation at night."

All operations are controlled using a seven-way pressure tap. "This allows each function to be easily selected without having to open or close separate circuits," Blair says.

"Once the desired function is selected, the relevant valve for the corresponding circuit opens. It also means the fresh water rinse tank can be topped up whilst the sprayer is being filled."

The UX01 can also be equipped with the optional Comfort-Pack plus terminal, which provides fully automatic control of agitation intensity, fill stop function, boom rinsing, line cleaning, tank cleaning, and tank-mix dilution.

The touchscreen display allows easy control of all functions even when using gloves. "The user just selects the desired function and the sprayer adjusts itself automatically," he says. "The operator just has to couple the hose and the machine will automatically fill the spray tank and fresh water rinse tank up to the desired tank fill levels."

The UX01 also features an optional steering axle, whose maximum steering angle of 28 degrees achieves a minimum turning radius of 4.5m. All booms can be controlled using the electro-hydraulic Profi-folding system in conjunction with the automatic DistanceControl or DistanceControl Plus or the new ContourControl vertical boom movement and SwingStop yaw prevention systems.

Additionally, the Super-L2 booms, when used in conjunction with ContourControl boom control, feature the new Flex-fold system for rapid folding. Amazone farm machinery is distributed in New Zealand by the Claas Harvest Centre network.
