Spreading and spraying manufacturer Amazone has added to the range of mounted sprayers in Australia with the local launch of the UF1602 model.

Existing models in the UF range include the UF901, which has a capacity of 1,050l, the UF1201 (1,350l), UF1501 (1720l) and UF1801 (1,908l).

With a nominal volume of 1,600 litres and an actual volume of 1,700 litres, the UF1602 can be equipped with Super-S2 booms from 15 to 30 metres.

Claas Harvest Centre product manager for Amazone Craig Hopkins says the UF1602 incorporates SmartCentre operator centre, as well as being ISOBUS-compatible.

"This centralised unit is positioned behind a large hinged door on the left hand side of the machine, protected from dirt and water," he says.

"The 60 litre induction bowl is also positioned behind this door.

"Its conical shape, high suction and high capacity rinse ring ensure quick, trouble-free induction of liquid and granular formulations."

Like other models in the range, the optional Comfort-Pack allows the liquid circuit to be remotely operated from the tractor, including automatic fill stop of both the suction hose and bowser fill port.

During spraying operations, the agitation automatically regulates itself according to tank level.

"The auto-dynamic agitation control means that if a large application rate is required from the boom, the agitation capacity is temporarily reduced," Craig says.

"Conversely, the agitation automatically operates at full capacity as nozzles are shut off on the headlands."

The Comfort-Pack option also includes an automatic cleaning function that can be controlled from the tractor.

The specially-shaped polyurethane tank has very smooth walls to allow effective cleaning, inside and out.

Capacity can be extended by an additional 1,000 litres by utilising the FT1001 front tank system.

"With FlowControl+, the front tank is completely integrated in the liquid circuit of the mounted unit," Craig says.

"The fill volume is routed between the front tank and the rear tank throughout filling and spraying operations."
