UX01 takes Machine of the Year 2018
28 November 2017
At Agritechnica 2017, Amazone’s new UX 01 trailed sprayer was awarded ‘Machine of the Year 2018’. This innovation award was handed out by the agricultural machinery editors of the Deutsche Landwirtschaftsverlag, the dlv, along with their colleagues from various international agricultural professional publishers.
The new generation of UX 01 trailed sprayers provides more precision and efficiency and even more comfort. Available in tank sizes of 4,200 l, 5,200 l or 6,200 l, its completely new operating concept and innovative boom guidance in boom widths of 21 to 40 m, means the UX 01 presents itself as being comfortable down to the last detail. And not only is it convenient to operate, it also offers style and performance with a staggering chemical fill capacity through the new 60 litre induction bowl and injection system.
The most important innovations on the UX 01 include simple machine control via the SmartCenter and the ContourControl boom guidance with SwingStop. ContourControl with SwingStop optimally guides the boom over the crop with the help of actively-actuated hydraulic rams and, via the electronics, it compensates for boom swing and thus provides an absolutely smooth boom ride.
