As a further expansion to the UF mounted sprayer range, Amazone now also offers the Super-S2 boom in a 98 ft (30 m) boom width. In spite of its large working width, the transport width remains at only 7.9 ft (2.4 m) and the transport height just 10 ft (3.05 m).
Thanks to the unique Amazone profile design, with its multi-folded boom sections in either steel or aluminium, the new boom maintains that overall lightness but, at the same time, is still extremely robust. With boom fold reduction possibilities down to 79 ft (24 m), 59 ft (18 m) and 42 ft (13 m) it provides that very flexible utilisation in 98 ft (30 m), 79 ft (24 m), 59 ft (18 m) and 39 ft (12
m) tramline systems.
With its large working width, the new Super-S2 boom is ideally suited to exploit the full capacity potential of the UF mounted sprayer in combination with the FT front tank. With a nominal tank volume of 740 gal (2,800 litres) maximum, this front tank combination is as efficient as either a trailed sprayer or a selfpropelled machine of the same fill volume. Especially when working in smaller, awkward shaped fields, it turns out to be significantly more manoeuvrable than a trailed sprayer. In addition, traction and the ability of the tractor to stay in the track are clearly better when operating a sprayer on slopes. In the 793 gal(3,000 litre) self-propelled sprayer class, however, this front tank combination is, especially with regard to the investment cost, a real alternative.
