Boasting a new operating concept and precision boom guidance system, the UX01 will offer tank volumes of 6,200, 5,200 or 4,200 litres and super-L2 booms from 27 to 40 metres.

CLAAS Harvest Centre product manager – Amazone Craig Hopkins says he’s been impressed by the sleek European styling and smart functionality of the UX01 super.

"One of the most striking features of the UX01 Super is the grey covers on either side of the sprayer," Hopkins says.

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

"Under the right-hand cover is an additional 240L 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 and all operations are controlled using a seven-way pressure tap," Hopkins adds.

"This allows each function to be easily selected without having to open or close separate circuits.

"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," he says.

The 60L induction bowl is located directly underneath the control valves. The company says its conical shape, centralised aperture and 200L/minute suction capacity ensure quick, trouble-free filling and emptying.  An additional mixing nozzle positioned underneath the suction aperture prevents blockages when inducting powders or granular products.

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," Hopkins 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 – its maximum steering angle of 28 degrees achieves a minimum turning radius of 4.5m.

Amazone says 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.
