Please read this operating
manual before first commissioning.
Keep it in a safe place for
future use.
READING THE INSTRUCTION
manual and adhering to it should not appear to
be inconvenient and superfluous as it is not
enough to hear from others and to realise that a
machine is good, to buy it and to believe that now
everything should work by itself. The person concerned would not only harm himself but also
make the mistake of blaming the machine for the
reason of a possible failure instead of himself. In
order to ensure good success one should go into
the mind of a thing, make himself familiar with
every part of the machine and to get acquainted
with its handling. Only in this way would you be
satisfied both with the machine as also with
yourself. To achieve this is the purpose of this instruction manual.

Observe the recommendations of the Crop Protection Law!
•
Never turn on hoses when they are under pressure!
•
You should only use original AMAZONE replacement hoses,
which can cope with the chemical, mechanical and thermal
stresses. Always use hose clamps made from stainless
steel/V2A!
•
Repair work inside the spray tank should be started only after
thorough cleaning and when wearing a protective breathing
mask. For safety reasons, a second person should observe the
work from outside the tank!
•
The following should be noted when repairing sprayers which
have been used for liquid fertilizing with Ammonium Nitrate Urea
solutions:
Residue of Ammonium-Nitrate-Urea solutions can produce salt
through the evaporation of the water both outside and inside the
machine. Thus, pure Ammonium Nitrate and urea are developed. In pure form, Ammonium Nitrate in conjunction with an organic material, e. g. urea, can explode if critical temperatures are
reached during repair operations (e. g. welding, grinding, filing).
The salt of the Ammonium Nitrate Urea solution is water-soluble,
i. e. this danger is precluded by thoroughly washing down the
machine or the part to be repaired with water. Therefore, before
starting any repair work, thoroughly clean the machine with water!
•
When filling the tank do not exceed the nominal volume!
Important!
•
When handling spraying agents, always wear correct protective clothing such as gloves, overalls, protective glasses
etc!
•
In tractor cabs with ventilation fans, replace the fresh air
filters with active carbon filters!
•
Consider the compatibility of spraying agents and materials
of the field sprayer!
•
Do not spray any materials which tend to glue or to solidify!
•
For the protection of people, animals and the environment,
crop sprayers must never be filled from open sources!
•
Crop sprayers may only be filled with a free falling stream of
water from the public water mains!

Intended equipment of the field sprayer
The designated equipment of the field sprayer consists of a combination of
•
Basic machine and running gear
•
Tyres
•
Drawbar
•
Pressure valve chest
•
Pump equipment
•
Sprayer booms
•
Spray lines with part section valves and
•
Special optional equipment
The individual machine types resulting from the combination of these
individual components (unit assembly system) are listed in the combination matrix (see section "Combination matrix"). The individual types
meet the requirements of the BBA (German Federal Biological Institute) – see features for spraying machines for surface cropping – BBA
guideline VII 1-1.1.1.

Caution when using specific crop protection agents
At the date of manufacture of this filed sprayer only a few crop protection agents are known to cause potential damage to materials used
on the field sprayer.
We would like to point out that the following crop protection agents,
for example, known as, Lasso, Betanal and Tramat, Stomp, Iloxan,
Mudecan, Elancolan and Teridox may cause damage to pump diaphragms, hoses, spray lines and the tank if exposed for a prolonged
period of time (20 hours) to such agents. There may be other crop
protection agents that could cause damage and this list may not be
considered exhaustive.
Care should also be shown when doing non-permissible mixtures of
two or more different crop protection agents.
Materials which tend to freeze or adhere may not be used for spraying.
When spraying such aggressive crop protection agents, it is recommended that you apply them onto the field immediately after mixing
them with water and then carefully clean the entire system with water.
Viton diaphragms are available as spare parts for the pump. These
Viton diaphragms are resistant to solvents containing crop protection
agents. Their longevity, however, is limited when they are used at low
temperatures (e.g. AUS at frost temperatures).
The materials and components used for
field
sprayers are safe for liquid fertiliser.

Danger areas
Within these areas, there is always danger, and dangerous situations
may arise at any time unexpectedly. Safety symbols identify these
danger areas. Here safety notices particularly apply. Please refer to
chapter "General safety notices", page 18.
The following are considered danger areas:
•
between tractor and sprayer, particularly when hitching or unhitching and when filling the tank.
•
within the operational range of moving parts.
•
when climbing on to the machine.
•
in the swivel range of the sprayer booms.
•
inside the spray tank due to poisonous fumes.
•
under elevated, non-secured machines or machine parts.
•
when folding in and out the sprayer boom in the area of high
voltage lines, which could be touched by the boom.

Product description
Caution!
Exceeding the permissible payload is prohibited. Exceeding the
payload would cause the load capacity of the tyres to be exceeded at an impermissible level. This would cause unstable
driving situations.
Carefully determine the payload and thereby the permissible
filling of your machine. Not all filling material allows you to completely fill the tank.

4, 5". In stirring stage "0" the agitator is
switched off. The highest stirring capacity is
in stirring stage "5". Depending on pump
equipment, set work stirring stage "1 or 2".
Fig. 18
Caution!
When spraying, always work with the stirring stage selected for
the spraying pressure setting. If the stirring stage is changed
during spraying, the set spraying pressure, and therefore the
spray rate, (l/ha) will also change. If during spraying there is a
stirring stage change, the spraying pressure should be adjusted
accordingly.
Travelling to the field with agitator engaged:
1. Switch off the sprayer boom.
2. Switch on the universal joint shaft.
3. Set the required stirring stage.
Important!
If this stirring stage differs from the stirring stage used for spraying pressure setting, switch back the stirring stage before starting spraying.
When stirring the spray liquid, observe the instructions of the
spraying agent manufacturer!
5.7.2
Fill-level-dependent automatic agitator (only for pump equipment "370 to
460l/min"
The stirring capacity of the fill-level-dependent
automatic agitator is set automatically depending
on the spray liquid tank fill level, i.e. lower fill
level - lower stirring capacity and higher fill level greater stirring capacity. This ensures that the
stirring capacity is always appropriate and prevents the formation of foam.

Note!
Important!
UG BAG0021.0 10.05
Important!
Only with AMASPRAY+
The operation of the sprayer boom with one side folded out is
only permissible
•
with the swing compensation locked.
•
to briefly pass obstacles (tree, pylons etc.).
•
Lock the swing compensation before folding the boom in or
out on one side.
When the swing compensation has not been locked the
sprayer boom can swing to one side. If the unfolded boom
extension hits the ground the sprayer boom might get damaged.
•
During the spraying process, reduce the forward speed. In
this way you avoid a swing build up and ground contact of
the sprayer boom when the swing compensation is locked.
With an uneven sprayer boom run, an even lateral distribution is no longer ensured.
The sprayer booms are completely folded out!
1. Lock the swing compensation.
2. With the height adjustment lift the sprayer boom to an average
height position.
3. Fold in the desired boom extension.
Warning!
After folding, the booms are raised to the transport position! End
the folding procedure promptly!
4. Align the sprayer boom with the tilt adjustment parallel to the
area to be sprayed.
5. Adjust the spraying height of the sprayer boom in such a way
that the spacing between sprayer boom and ground surface is at
least 1 m.
6. Switch off the boom part width sections of the left hand side
boom extension.
7. During the spraying procedure reduce the forward speed.

5.16.11 Operation with reduced working width
Important!
The special optional equipment
reduction of the "Super-S-boom" is
required for the symmetrical working width reduction of the boom.
For every folding cylinder 2 ball
taps (Fig. 46/1 and Fig. 46/1) must
be actuated.
Prior to folding out the boom extension shut the
relevant ball taps (Fig. 47/1) on the outer hinges
– e.g. the reduction from 24 to 18 m working
width, – or the ball taps (Fig. 47/1) on the inner
boom elements – for the reduction to 12 m.

Nozzles
Important!
Adjust the volumetric remote control with each nozzle change.
(Not required with "TG" control)
Note!
The spraying pressure and diameter of the nozzle opening influence the drip size and the liquid volume ejected. The greater the
spraying pressure, the smaller the droplet diameter. Smaller
droplets are more susceptible to an undesired drift!

5.18.2 Multiple nozzles
When using different nozzles types the use of
multiple nozzles shaped as a triple nozzle
head (Fig. 50
) is advantageous. The vertically positioned nozzle is fed.
By turning the triple nozzle head (Fig. 50
/1) counter-clockwise another nozzle is put into
operation.
The triple nozzle body is switched off in the intermediate positions. This allows a reduction of
the sprayer boom working width.
Important!
Flush the spray lines with flushing
water, before turning the triple nozzle body to another nozzle type.

Options for the application of liquid fertiliser
At present there are mainly two different kinds of liquid fertiliser available:
•
Ammonium Nitrate-Urea-Solvents (AUS) with 28 kg N per 100 kg
AUS.
•
An NP solution 10-34-0 with 10 kg N and 34 kg P2O5 per 100 kg
NP-solution.
Important!
If the liquid fertiliser is applied by flat fan nozzles, multiply the
corresponding values from the spraying chart for the rate l/ha at
AUS with 0.88 and at NP-solutions with 0.85 as the mentioned
rates in l/ha only apply to pure water.
The following principle applies:
Apply liquid fertilisers only in coarse droplets to avoid scorching of
crops. If the droplets are too large they will roll off the leaf and too
small droplets would enforce the magnifying glass effect. Also too
high application rates may cause scorching of the leaves - due to the
salt concentration of the fertiliser.
Basically no higher rates of liquid fertiliser should be applied as e. g.
40 kg/N (please refer also to "Conversion table for the spraying of
liquid fertilisers"). AUS-refertilising via nozzles should in any case be
terminated in the growth stage 39 as otherwise scorching the ears
would result in considerable damage.
UG BAG0021.0 10.05
85
Structure and function
5.19.1.1 3-ray nozzles
If the liquid fertiliser predominantly is to be absorbed by the roots instead of the leaves of the crop the use of the 3-ray-nozzles is to be
preferred.
An integrated metering aperture inside the nozzle produces a nearly
pressureless, coarse droplet distribution of the liquid fertiliser via three
openings. This helps to prevent the production of an undesirable
spraying mist and the production of small droplets. The coarse droplets produced by the 3-ray nozzle rain gently on the crops and roll off
its surface. Even though scorching damage is thereby avoided as
far as possible the 3-ray nozzles should not be used for late top
dressing and instead drag hoses should be used.
For the following listed 3-ray nozzles the black bayonet nuts should
be used exclusively.

Preconditions for the use of the 5- and 8-hole
nozzles are the same as for the 3-ray nozzles.
Contrary to the 3-ray nozzles the jet openings at
the 5- and 8-hole nozzle (Fig. 52) are not directed downwards but sideways. This results in
the production of very large droplets raining even
more gently on the crops.

Pressure circulation system (DUS)
Important!
● To spray always switch on the pressure circulation system.
● When using drag hoses always switch off the pressure circulation system.
(Optional)
The pressure circulation system
● allows the permanent liquid circulation in
the spray line when the pressure circulation
system is switched on. For this every boom
part width section is supplied with a flushing
hose (Fig. 66/1).
● can be operated with spray liquid or flushing
water.
● reduces the undiluted residue to 2 l for all
spray lines.
The permanent liquid circulation
● allows an even spray pattern right from the
beginning as immediately after switching on
the sprayer boom the spray liquid is available at all spraying nozzles.
● prevents blockage of the spray line.
The main components of the pressure circulation
system are:
● one hose for the flushing connection (Fig.
66/1) per boom part width section.
● the DUS reversing tap (Fig. 67/1).
● the DUS pressure relief valve (Fig. 67/2).
The DUS pressure relief valve is permanently set at the factory and reduces the
pressure in the pressure circulation system
to 1 bar.
When the DUS reversing tap is in position (Fig.
67/1), the pressure circulation system is switched
on.
When the DUS reversing tap is in position (Fig.
67/3), the pressure circulation system is switched
off.
When the DUS reversing tap is in position (Fig.

10.1
Preparing spraying process
Important!
•
The prerequisite for the proper application of crop protection agents is a trouble-free operation of the field sprayer.
The field sprayer should be regularly checked on the test
bed. Remedy any faults immediately.
•
Use all designed filters. Clean all filters regularly. The trouble-free operation of the field sprayer is only achieved by a
perfect filtering of the spraying agent. The perfect filtering
has a considerable effect on the success of the crop protection measure.
•
Observe the permissible combinations of filters or of the
mesh widths. The mesh widths of the self cleaning pressure
filter and of the nozzle filters should always be smaller than
the nozzle opening of the nozzles used.
ο
The mesh width of the pressure filter insert of the self
cleaning pressure filter fitted as standard is 0.3 mm at a
mesh number of 50 mesh/inch. This pressure filter insert is suitable for nozzle sizes from '03'.
ο
For '02' nozzles the 80 mesh/inch pressure filter insert
is required (optional).
ο
For '015' and '01' nozzles the 100 mesh/inch pressure
filter insert is required (optional).
ο
Please note that the use of pressure filter inserts with
80 or 100 mesh/inch may cause agent filtering off with
some crop protection agents. If necessary contact the
crop protection agent manufacturer.
Please refer to on page 64.

For this, see the section on "Cleaning", on page 141.
Preparing the spray liquid
Warning!
Always wear protective gloves and the proper protective clothing! The highest risk to be contaminated by the spraying agent
occurs when mixing the spraying agents.
Important!
•
In addition to the generally applicable instructions listed
here, note the product-specific procedures described in the
crop protection agent application instructions.
•
See the application instructions for the crop protection agent for the specified water and preparation quantities.
•
Read the application instructions of the crop protection
agent and note the safety measures!
•
We recommend that you visit our website at
www.Wirkstoffmanager.de on the Internet. Here you can
calculate your filling and refilling quantities using a software.
•
Carefully determine the required filling or re-filling quantity
to avoid residual quantities at the end of the spraying process because environmentally friendly disposal of residual
quantities is difficult.
ο
To calculate the required refilling quantity for the last
spray liquid tank filling, use the "Filling table for residual areas". To do this, deduct the technical, undiluted
residual quantity from the spray rod from the calculated filling quantity!
For this see chapter "Filling table for residual areas", on
page 122.
•
Flush spraying agent containers which have been carefully
emptied (e.g. by the can washing device) and pour the flushing water into the spray liquid!
Procedure
1. The instructions on the spraying agents provide you with the
necessary information about the water and spraying agent quantities.

Filling with water
Important!
When filling, observe the permissible payload of your field
sprayer. When filling your field sprayer bear in mind the different
specific weights [kg/l] of the individual liquids.
Caution!
When filling the suction port (chapter on page 89) always open
the lid of the spray liquid tank!

Important!
•
Before filling, check the field sprayer, e.g. for leaking tanks
and hoses and for correct position of all control elements.
•
During the filling procedure never leave the field sprayer
unattended.
•
Ensure that there is never a direct connection between the
filling hose and the spray liquid inside the tank so that a
back suction of spray liquid into the water supply network is
prevented.
•
Attach the end of the filling hose at minimum 20 cm above
the filling opening of the spray tank. The resulting free run
out provides the best safety possible to prevent the spraying agent from flowing back into the pipe circuit.
•
Avoid the formation of foam. When filling do not allow foam
to escape from the tank. A funnel with large diameter which
reaches right down to the spray tank bottom effectively prevents the formation of foam.
•
Fill the spray tank only with inserted filling sieve.
Note!
The preferred method of filling is on the edge of the field from a
bowser (if possible make use of natural height differences). Depending on the spraying agent used this type of filling may not
be permitted in water protection zones. In any case check with
the local authorities.

Spraying crop protection liquid
Note!
•
Before the start of the season and, for example, before each
nozzle change, check the application of the sprayer by calibration (see the section "Calibrating the crop protection
sprayer")!
•
With 3 m/s wind speed, take additional measures to prevent
drifting (see section on "Measures against drifting")! With
average wind speeds above 5 m/s, cease treatment (leaves
and twigs move).
•
Do not select a forward speed greater than 8 km/h! First, in
order not to subject the boom to excessive mechanical
strain, and, secondly, in order not to affect the evenness of
the spreading on account of strong relative wind.
•
Avoid excessive dosing (caused by overlapping in event of
the inaccurate course of a spraying track after turning
and/or curves at the headland with sprayer boom switched
on)!
•
To accurately achieve the agent spray rate (l or kg/ha) specified in the instructions for use of the crop protection agent,
keep exactly to the specified liquid spray rate [l/ha] during
spraying.
•
Switch the sprayer boom on and off only during travel.
•
Control box: Keep exactly to the tractor gear preselected for
the spraying pressure setting and the stirring stage during
the spraying procedure, as otherwise there will be deviations from the desired spray rate.
•
During the spraying process constantly check the spray
liquid consumption in relation to the treated area.
•
If the spraying pressure drops significantly, the tank is empty. If under otherwise unaltered conditions the spraying
pressure drops, either the suction or the pressure filter is
blocked.
•
All rates [l/ha] were determined with water. Multiply the relevant values with AUS by 0.88 and with NP solutions by 0.85.
1. Mix up the spray liquid according to instructions and agitate according to instructions from the spraying agent manufacturer.
2. Fold out the sprayer booms.
3. Set the height of the spray boom (height between the nozzles
and the crop) according to the spraying table referring to the
nozzles used.
4. Set the required stirring stage.
5. Read off at the tractor meter which tractor gear would be suitable
for a forward speed of 6 to max. 8 km/h. Using the manual accelerator lever, keep the tractor engine speed constant, taking
into consideration the pump drive speed (min. 350 rpm and max.
550 rpm).
6. Set the specified liquid spray rate at the computer or, with "NG"
units, via the spraying pressure.
7. Select the suitable tractor gear and start moving. Keep exactly to
the specified forward speed during spraying.
8. Switch on spraying.

Use of the machine
10.5.1 Information for automatic dosing
Control box:
Travel-speed-dependent dosing is achieved within a tractor gear. This
means that, if the tractor engine speed drops, e.g. due to a slope in
the terrain, not only the forward speed but also the tractor PTO shaft
speed, and hence the pump drive speed also drops by the same amount.
This alters the pump delivery volume by the same amount and the
desired spray rate [l/ha] remains constant - within one tractor gear. At
the same time, the set spraying pressure is also changed.
Note!
To achieve optimum efficiency of the spray liquid being applied
and to prevent unnecessary environmental damage, the spraying
pressure must be kept within the appropriate range for the nozzle used (see spray table).
Example:
If the set spraying pressure is e.g. 3.2 bar, spraying pressures between 2.4 and 4.0 bar are permissible. Here, it is essential to observe
the permissible pressure range of the nozzles installed.
Important!
When increasing forward speed, do not exceed the maximum
permissible pump drive speed of 550 rpm!

10.5.3 Measures to prevent drifting
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Choose the early morning or the evening for the treatment (usually less wind).
Choose larger nozzles and higher water rates.
Decrease spraying pressure.
Maintain the correct boom operational height as the danger of
drift increases with increased nozzle spacing.
Reduce the forward speed (to below 8 km/h).
Fit nozzles with a high proportion of coarse droplets, such as socalled anti-drift (AD) nozzles or injector (ID) nozzles (nozzles
with a high percentage of coarse droplets)
Observe the distance requirements for the relevant crop protection agents.
10.5.4 Setting the liquid spray rate [l/ha]
The liquid spray rate is dependent on:
ο
the liquid discharged from the nozzles [l/min]. Nozzle
size and spraying pressure influence the nozzle output.
Determine the required spraying pressure from the spray
table - taking into consideration the nozzle size and type.
Important!
Increasing the spraying pressure increases the nozzle output,
reducing the spraying pressure reduces the nozzle output.
Note!
Selection of the suitable nozzle depends on the required liquid
spray rate.
ο
the forward speed [km/h]. It is essential to check the actual forward speed of the tractor over a calibration distance.
For this, see on page 134 - "Checking actual tractor forward
speed").
The spray tables provide useful information on settings for nozzle
selection and spraying pressure basic settings. Check the settings
as specified in the tables by calibrating the sprayer with water
(see on page 167.).
•
10.5.4.1 Determining the spraying pressure
1. Find the correct spray table, taking into consideration nozzle
type and size.
2. Find the required liquid spray rate and read off the spraying
pressure.
Important!
•
Choose a slow forward speed and a low spraying pressure
to avoid drifting loss!
•
The greater the spraying pressure, the smaller the droplet
diameter. Smaller droplets are more susceptible to an undesired drift!

10.5.4.2 Setting the spraying pressure
1. Set the spray rate via the computer or with
the "NG" unit via the spraying pressure.
2. On/Off (Fig. 104/1) for power supply to position "I" (ON).
3. Switch (Fig. 104/2) for switching on/off central spray boom to position "0" (OFF).
4. Set required stirring stage of hydraulic agitator.
5. Switch on the universal joint shaft.
6. Read off at the tractor meter which tractor
gear would be suitable for a forward speed
of 6 to max. 8 km/h. Using the manual accelerator lever, hold the tractor engine
speed constant taking into consideration the
pump drive speed (350 to 550 rpm).
7. With use of an "NG" unit, set the spraying
pressure taken from the spray table via the
± button (Fig. 104/3) on the spraying pressure display (Fig. 104/4).
8. With use of a "TG" unit, enter the desired
value in the computer.
9. Determine the actual nozzle output [l/min]
and, if it deviates from the desired nozzle
output, alter the spraying pressure accordingly.
Important!
•
If under otherwise unaltered
conditions the spraying pressure drops, clean the suction
or pressure filter!
•
For use with the "NG" unit, the
correctly set volumetric remote
control is the precondition for
the correct spraying pressure
setting.

Practical use with "Spraycontrol II A"
The control units are delivered ready for operation. Before working on
the field, program the "Spraycontrol II A" in accordance with the respective installation and operating instructions.
The specified "Imp./l" on the flow meter has already been determined at the factory; this value is already stored in the computer (in
addition, the "Imp./l" value is written on the housing of the flow meter).
If, however, the "Imp./l" is not known, calibrate the flow meter (see on
page 173.)
Before use, enter the machine-specific data in the "machine data
block" (see also the installation and operating instructions for "Spraycontrol II A".
Observe the following operation procedure:
1. Attach the machine to the tractor.
2. Connect the machine cable to the control box.
3. Mount the "Spraycontrol II A" on the control box.
Important!
When mounting the "Spraycontrol II A" on the control box, set
the On/Off switch for the power supply of "the Spraycontrol II A"
to position "0".
4. Switch on the "Spraycontrol II A".
The type of machine is automatically identified via the machine
connector and the "Field sprayer" program is automatically selected with the machine data already entered.
5. Enter order-specific data in the "order data block".
5.1 Enter the name (lot designation, customer designation).
5.2 Enter or check the "Spray rate specified value".
5.3 Enter comments.
Important!
Name and comments need not necessarily be entered. However,
the specified value should always be checked.
6. From "order data block" via key "T2" direct to the "work data
block".
7. Start the order in the "work data block" via key "T2".
8. During the spraying procedure, all the functions of the on-board
computer key pad can be selected, including those of the pocket
calculator. Referenced to the entered spray rate specified value,
the rate can be altered in 10-% increments via the "±10 %" key.
9. The order is completed and stored by pressing key "T2" (end).
The data on the worked area, work time, spray output etc. for the
order carried out are stored.

Use of the machine
10.7.1 Special remarks on practical use
On account of the automatic area-related control, the forward speed
and pump drive speed are freely selectable within a wide range.
The pump delivery rate is, in turn, dependent on its drive speed. Select the pump drive speed (between 350 and 550 rpm) so that there is
always a sufficient flow to the sprayer boom and for operation of the
hydraulic agitator. That means that at a high forward speed and a
high spray rate more spray liquid must be supplied than at a lower
forward speed and with a lower spray rate.
Before starting the spraying, select the closer forward speed and
spraying pressure range from the spray table, taking into consideration the nozzle size and the desired spray rate (specified value).
If, at high forward speed and low pump drive speed, the desired specified spray rate is not achieved, a fault message appears on the display and an acoustic alarm signal is emitted at the same time. To
remedy this, reduce the forward speed and increase the pump drive
speed.
Note!
During spraying, ensure that the spraying pressure never deviates by more than +/- 25 % from the targeted spraying pressure.
Example:
If the targeted spraying pressure is e.g. 3.2 bar, all spraying pressures
between 2.4 and 4.0 bar are permissible.
Important!
To ensure optimum crop treatment and to reduce environmental
damage, do not deviate from the permissible pressure range
specified for the nozzles installed in the sprayer boom. For example, the pressure range for nozzle size '05' is from 1.0 to 5.0
bar.
With the control units "NG" and "TG", monitor the permissible
spraying pressure of the nozzles installed in the sprayer boom manually at the pressure gauge.
With the "digital pressure display" option, the spraying pressure of
the nozzles installed in the sprayer boom is monitored and displayed
at the SKS.
Important!
When spraying with only 1 boom part width section, it is necessary to switch to "manual operation" at the control box.
10.7.2 The tank content is now only approx. 100 l
1. Set the program switch from "Auto" to "Manual operation" when
the tank content is only approx. 100 l.
Important!
Set the program switch from "Auto" to "Manual operation" when
the tank content is only approx. 100 l.
2. When using a new tank filling, set the program switch back to
"Auto".

Residues
You may encounter two kinds of spray liquid
residue:
1. Residue remaining in the tank after
completion of spraying.
2. Technical residue remaining in the tank,
filter tap, pump, suction and compression hose, control unit and nozzle lines
in the event of a clear drop in spraying
pressure. The residues of the individual
components can be taken from the section "Technical Data" and must be added.
Fig. 105
10.8.1 Removal of residues
Proceed as follows:
1. Set the central sprayer boom On/Off switch
to position 0.
2. Switch on the hydraulic agitator.
3. Switch on the nozzles for tank precleaning
via the simple tap.
4. Set the reverse tap (Fig. 105/1) to the
"Flushing" position.
5. Switch on the universal joint shaft.
6. Dilute the residue in the tank with at least a
10-fold quantity of water from the flushing
water tank.
7. Set the reverse tap (Fig. 106/1) to the
"Flushing" position as per Fig. 106.
8. Spray the diluted residue onto the already
treated crops – at increased forward speed
by selecting the next highest tractor gear.
9. From 100 l residue, switch off the hydraulic
agitator.
Fig. 106
Important!
From 100 litres residue in the tank,
switch off the agitator to spray the
tank empty and correct the spraying
pressure setting. With the agitator
switched on, the technical residue
would increase compared to the
values indicated.

Cleaning the machine
Important!
•
The regular cleaning of the machine is a precondition for
proper maintenance and facilitates machine operation.
•
Let the materials react for as short a time as possible, e. g.
by cleaning daily when finishing spraying. The spray liquid
should not be left without good reason for any length of
time in the sprayer tank, e. g. not overnight.
Service life and reliability of the field sprayer greatly depends on contact time of the crop protection agents with the
materials of the field sprayer.
•
Always clean the field sprayer before spraying another crop
protection agent.
•
Dilute the residue in the spray liquid tank and spray the diluted residue (for this, please refer to chapter "Residues",
on page 137).
•
Before thoroughly cleaning the field sprayer, pre-clean the
field sprayer while still in the field.
•
After every cleaning of the sprayer, dispose of any cleaning
residues in an environmentally friendly manner.
•
Remove the spraying nozzles at least once in a season.
Check the removed spraying nozzles for cleanliness, if necessary, clean them with a soft brush (Please refer to the
paragraph "Maintenance"). Flush the spray lines without
spray nozzles.
12.1.1 Cleaning the sprayer with an empty tank

12.16.1.2 Determining the spray rate with the tractor at standstill via the individual nozzle output
If the exact forward speed of the tractor on the field is known, calibration with water can be carried out by measuring the individual nozzle
output [l/min] with the tractor at a standstill. From the collected nozzle
output, then calculate the liquid spray rate [l/ha] or read off directly
from the spray table.
Determine the nozzle output at at least 3 different nozzles. For this
purpose, check a nozzle on the left and on the right boom extension,
as well as in the middle of the sprayer boom, as follows:
1. Fill the spraying agent tank with water.
2. Check that all the nozzles are working properly.
3. Read off the spraying pressure for the desired spray rate [l/ha]
from the spray table and adjust.
4. Determine the individual nozzle output [l/min] at several nozzles,
e.g. with stopwatch, dosing cylinder and measuring jug.
5. Calculate the average individual nozzle output [l/min].

•
If the actual and the collected nozzle output differ, correct the
spraying pressure accordingly:
ο
Liquid spray rate (nozzle output) too low increase the spraying pressure.
ο
Liquid spraying rate too high - reduce the spraying pressure.
•
Keep checking the nozzle output until the calculated and the
desired liquid spray rates correspond.

Hydraulic system
Danger!
•
Only a specialist workshop is permitted to carry out repair
work on the hydraulic system.
•
The hydraulic system is under high pressure.
•
When looking for leaks, the appropriate tools should be
used.
•
Before starting work on the hydraulic system, depressurise
the system.
•
When under high pressure, any fluids (such as hydraulic oil)
may penetrate the skin and cause serious injury. Immediately call a doctor. There is risk of infection.
•
When connecting hydraulic hoses to the tractor hydraulic
system, ensure that the hydraulic system on the tractor and
on the trailing vehicle is at zero pressure!
•
Dispose of old oil as specified. In case of problems, contact
your oil supplier.
•
Store hydraulic oil out of reach of children.
•
Hydraulic oil must not penetrate into the soil or water supply.
•
When performing maintenance and repair work on the hydraulic system, note the chapter "Safety recommendation
for the operator", page 25.
Important!
•
Ensure the correct connection of the hydraulic hoses.
•
Check all hydraulic hoses and connections for damage and
cleanliness at regular intervals.
•
All hydraulic hoses must be checked for their operational
safety by a skilled person at least once a year!
•
Replace damaged and aged hydraulic hoses. Only use orihydraulic hose lines.
ginal
•
The period of use of any hose circuit should not exceed sic
years, including a possible storing period of two years maximum. Even if properly stored and used, hoses and hose
circuits do age. Therefore their longevity and period of use
is limited. Deviations from the above may be accepted depending on experience and potential danger. For hoses and
hose circuits made from thermoplasts other guidelines may
prevail.

Identification of hydraulic hoses
The assembly labelling provides the following information:
Fig. 139/...
(1) Manufacturer's marking on the hydraulic
hose line (A1HF)
(2) Date of production of the hydraulic hose
circuit (02 04 = February, 2004)
(3) Maximum approved operating pressure
(210 BAR).
Fig. 139
Maintenance intervals
After the first 10 operating hours, and then every 50 operating
hours
1. Check all the components of the hydraulic system for tightness.
2. If necessary, tighten screw unions.
Before each start-up
1. Check hydraulic hose lines for visible damage.
2. Eliminate any scouring points on hydraulic hose lines and pipes.
3. Replace any worn or damaged hydraulic hose lines immediately.
Inspection criterion for hydraulic hose circuits
Important!
Please adhere to the following inspection criterion. This serves
your own safety!
Replace hydraulic hose lines, on determining any of the following during the inspection:
•
Damage to the outer layer up to the ply (e.g. scouring points,
cuts, cracks).
•
Brittleness of the outer layer (crack formation of the hose material).
•
Deformations which do not match the natural shape of the hose
or the hose line. Both in a depressurised and pressurised state
or when bent (e.g. layer separation, bubble formation, pinching,
bends).
•
Untight points.
•
Damage or deformation of the hose assembly (sealing function
restricted); minor surface damage is not a reason for replacement.
•
Movement of the hose out of the fitting.
•
Corrosion on the fitting which affects function and strength.
•
Installation requirements not complied with.
UG BAG0021.0 10.05
171
Maintenance, repair and care
•
Life span of 6 years has been exceeded.
The date of manufacture of the hydraulic hose line on the assembly is decisive for determining these six years. If the date of
manufacture on the assembly is "2004", then the hose should
not be used beyond February 2010. See also "Labelling of hydraulic hose lines".
12.17.1 Installation and removal of hydraulic hose lines
Note!
Always follow the following instructions when mounting and
dismounting hydraulic hoses:
•
Only use original
hydraulic hose lines.
•
Always ensure cleanliness.
•
Always install the hydraulic hoses in such a manner that the
following operational conditions occur
ο
The hose is not under tension, except for its own
weight.
ο
Short hoses are not upset.
ο
Outer mechanical influences on the hydraulic hose lines are avoided.
Prevent the hoses from rubbing on components or against each other by arranging and attaching them
properly. If necessary, secure the hydraulic hoses by
using guard covers. Cover sharp-edged components.
ο
The permissible bending radius is maintained
•
When connecting a hydraulic hose with moving parts, ensure that through the entire range of movement, the hose
length ensures that the smallest permissible bending radius
is maintained and/or the hydraulic hose is not tensioned.
•
Fasten the hydraulic hoses at the fixing points indicated.
Avoid hose attachments where they would prevent the natural movement and length change of the hose.
•
Painting hydraulic hoses is prohibited!
