The cost-efficient self-propelled sprayer with a 3,500 l tank and fill level management
Amazone has offered the FT 1001 front tank for several years with great success. The range has now been extended by the introduction of the FT 1502. With the FT1502 front tank, the tank capacity of the UF 02 mounted sprayer can very easily be extended by 1,500 l. A UF 2002, in combination with a FT 1502, therefore has a tank capacity of 3,500 l. The optional FlowControl + and the compact design make the front tank an ideal solution for extending the capacity of the UF 02.
The internal cleaning of the sprayer combination utilises the contents of the fresh water tank of the UF. The 350 l fresh water tank of the UF 02 facilitates its thorough cleaning.
The compact sprayer-tractor unit has many advantages during transport, particularly on narrow village roads. The well-thought out design of the machine gives a clear view despite the front tank. The AMAZONE FT 1502 complies with all relevant EU traffic safety directives and standards.
An optional road lighting kit is needed if the lighting system of the tractor is obscured. The obscured low beam headlights on the tractor must be replicated on the tractor roof.
The special feature of the FT 1502 is the 100 % integration of the front tank into the mounted sprayer using the FlowControl + electronic fill level management via an ISOBUS terminal. The technical basis for the FlowControl + is the two electronic fill level sensors in the front tank and the rear tank and two high-performance venturis. These are powered by an additional 150 l/min pump on the UF. The transfer rate in each direction is up to 200 l/min. Continuous transfer pumping between the front and rear tanks ensures that the spray agent is always ideally mixed. The ISOBUS terminal automatically controls the liquid circuit, so that the weight distribution is always kept at the optimum. Premature reduction of the load on the front axle is prevented. FlowControl + further ensures that both tanks are automatically filled during the filling process and emptied during the spraying process. Both tanks are cleaned out at the end.
Manual control also makes it possible to switch off the FlowControl + automatic function and so use the front tank only for transporting additional flushing water or usable water for subsequent spraying. The FlowControl + pump provides additional practical support during the filling process of the UF 02, so that a maximum fill speed of up to 400 l/min is possible with the overall combination.
The combination of a UF 2002 and a FT 1502 wrapped around a modern tractor and with a tank capacity of up to 3,500 l can provide an interesting alternative to a self- propelled sprayer. The advantages of this self-propelled combination are the price and the additional use of the tractor for other work.
