Amazone at the Royal Highland Show 2012

Amazone Ltd will adopt the theme ‘more in-field efficiency’ at the forthcoming Royal Highland Show 2012 to be held on the Ingliston Showground, Edinburgh starting June 21st and running through to June 24th 2012.

Amazone's comprehensive range of spreaders, sprayers, drills and cultivators will be on show at the RHS 2012

Amazone at the Royal Highland Show

Farming is still under pressure from increasing input prices and relatively volatile commodity prices and so making the job more efficient is still the order of the day. To help with that efficiency drive, Amazone Ltd will have on show a plethora of products, including the new folding KG rotary cultivators and Cayena-C grain and fert tine seeder.

Sprayers - on show will be Amazone’s unique front and back mounted sprayer combination. At the heart of this combination is the patented Flow-Control system that automates the transfer of fluid from front to back ensuring a perfect mix between the two tanks as well as continual adjustment of the weight transfer to keep the tractor balance right at all times. The UF 1801 mounted sprayer and FT1001 front tank will be complimented on the stand with the 2012 model Pantera 4001 self-propelled. The Pantera was seen at Ingliston for the first time last year and now features an enclosed operator station, the High-Flow system with twin lines for liquid fertiliser application as well as the new System 150 auto-steering.

Spreaders – the full range of Amazone spreaders will be presented from the smaller ZA-X range right through to the state-of-the-art ZA-M 4200 Ultra Profis Hydro with hydraulic disc drive, six-section shut-off, weigh-cell and cavernous 4,200 litre hopper that will swallow up 6 x 600 kg bags of fertiliser even with some material left in. Plus, the new Amatron3 usable as either an ISOBUS or CANBUS controller combines the best of both Amatron and GPS-Switch all built into one box.

Cultivators – the Catros+ 4001-2 folding compact disc harrow with the TS bogey chassis will sit alongside the Cenius 4002-2 mulch cultivator showing that, irrespective of whether you need a shallow post-combine stubble chit, a mulching up of old pasture land or the deep loosening of the top 10” or so of top soil, the Amazone cultivator range offers something for all. The Catros is seen at the Show with the GreenDrill 200 catch crop drill for distributing anything from rape to stubble turnips and from micro-fertiliser to grass seed. Mounted on the drawbar of the trailed Catros the GreenDrill 200 is the ideal solution for re-establishing tired swards.

Drilling - of course, for Scotland, no stand would be complete without the ability to sow fertiliser alongside grain and this year is no different from Amazone who will take the opportunity to show off the updated Avant folding grain and fert combination with the all-new KG 01 series rotary cultivators now capable of withstanding tractor horsepowers of up to 435 hp when used in combination. This puts Amazone into a different league compared to other popular makes of power harrow. Also on display is the new Cayena 6001-C 6 metre trailed, grain and fertiliser tine seeder. With its split 4000 litre pressurised tank for joint application rates up to 400 kg/ha at 15 km/h, the Cayena-C is just as at home after the plough, in min-till or direct into stubble.

Whether an existing customer, or new to the brand, go and enjoy a cup of something with them at the Show, they are in their usual spot on the outer perimeter of the machine lines and they look forward to seeing you there.
