AutoTS + ClickTS | The disc-integrated border spreading systems
AutoTS – comfortable and precise lateral distribution right up to the field boundary
The various border spreading techniques - side, border and water course spreading - can be easily activated from the cab independently to each side via the terminal by means of the AutoTS disc-integrated border spreading system.
The ingenious operating principle of AutoTS
An actuator turns the delivery vane by approx. 10 °, so that the fertiliser is guided via the shorter border spreading vane in border and water course spreading. The combination of speed and using the shorter vane means that the fertiliser is thrown a considerably shorter distance without stressing it mechanically.
"The design specification for the development of the Amazone ZA-TS was clear: no more compromises between normal spreading and side, border and water course spreading at the field boundary." (Profi magazine – Streuwerke in der Praxis "Hydraulisch oder mechanisch" [Spreading systems in practice "Hydraulic or mechanical"]· 06/2017)
Higher yields in the boundary zone with AutoTS and ClickTS
The AutoTS and ClickTS border spreading systems make it possible for the operator to reliably generate a very steep cut-off to the border spread pattern and thus create perfect growing conditions close to the field boundary. As a result, a significant increase in yield compared to previous boundary spreading systems is possible.
The AutoTS spreading system provides automatic rate reduction when border spreading. The rate can be changed in freely selectable percentage steps. As the two spreading discs can be operated independently of each other, an overall or an individual rate change can be set.
AutoTS boundary spreading system
Conventional boundary spreading systems
The throwing distance of the fertiliser is restricted by a shorter spreading vane.
The mechanical deflection of the fertiliser causes damage to the granules which then drop next to the tramline.
The fertiliser remains undamaged and is optimally distributed up to the field boundary.
This quantity of damaged fertiliser is then missing from the boundary zone area resulting in under-fertilisation.
Due to the reduced throwing speed of the fertiliser, only a few granules fall beyond the field boundary.
Not all the fertiliser granules are mechanically deflected, so that some are spread well beyond the field boundary.
