Equipped with a 2000-litre tank and a 15-30-metre boom, the Amazone UF2002 is easy to connect and operate thanks to its ‘SmartCenter’ operator station.

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," Claas Harvest Centre product manager Craig Hopkins 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 Amazone UF2002’s 60-litre induction bowl – which has a dust and waterproof sealed lid – is located directly underneath the control valves.

The UF2002’s conical hopper shape, centralised aperture and 150L/min suction capacity make for quick, trouble-free mixing. It also features an additional mixing nozzle underneath the suction aperture which helps prevent blockages when inducting powders and granular formations.

Another standout feature of the UF2002 is its 30-litre sealed locker which is designed to store the operator’s personal protective equipment, and a 20-litre hand wash tank and soap dispenser that flows directly into the induction bowl. Filling occurs at the bottom of the tank to reducing the formation of foam.

"A large hinged door protects the operating controls and the induction bowl from dirt and water," Hopkins says.

"The door opens backwards towards the boom, protecting the operator from chemical contact from the booms and creating a clear working space.

"The inside panel of the door has holders for gloves and a measuring jug," he adds.

A newly-developed 250 or 30-L/min piston diaphragm pump comes equipped to the UF2002 as well a 350-litre fresh water tank and optional pump for continuous internal cleaning during operation.

The UF2002 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 operator simply has to position the tractor close enough to couple the electrics, hydraulic, PTO shaft and the top link," Hopkins says.  "Once the tractor is reversed a little bit more, the lower link arms drop into the relevant sockets and the machine can be raised into position.

"The parking system is then deactivated using the pull-rod, which causes the skids or optional caster wheels to swivel upwards, and locking the quick coupling system," he adds.

The UF2002 series features two different link arm positions to suit Category 2 and 3 linkages. It also features a polyethylene 2000-litre tank that is integrated into the main frame.

"Due to the large tank volume of the UF2002, it is of importance to link the machine to the tractor with as favourable a centre of gravity as possible." Hopkins says.
