It processes nearly 900 hectares – primarily with grain and rapeseed cultivation. For the official handover, Jörg Denekas, CEO of AGRAVIS Technik Heide-Altmark GmbH, Florian Lüer, sales person at the AGRAVIS Technik branch in Königslutter, as well as Roland Kratz, Amazone sales manager for Germany and Austria, and the Amazone plant representative Michael Hager visited Destedt. They offered their congratulations to Lars Haverlah, the organisation’s operations manager, and his employees.
Many advantages of the Amazone UX 11200
Lars Haverlah explains the organisation’s decision for a UX 11200 like this: “When the weather is optimal, we have to respond rapidly. With the enormous container volume, the 30-metre sprayer boom and the triple pumping system with an output volume of up to 900 litres/minute, we can work on our large surface areas in a one-man process despite the scattered locations. Even with the large container volume, the actively steered double axis guarantees the optimal protection of the ground and stock, and it provides the safety of travelling legally on public roads even with a full container. In addition, the device doesn’t just have an automatic, GPS-controlled section control but also all available technical options that enable faster, safer and more precise work.”
High demand for UX series at Technik Heide-Altmark
On the occasion of the transfer, Jörg Denekas and Florian Lüer reported an overall positive response: “The UX series is most frequently in demand at our company – it includes everything from a container volume of 3,200 litres to 11,200 litres. Since the surface structures in our operational area are relatively large, we mainly use larger containers and spray widths of up to 40 metres.”
Roland Kratz from Amazone was also delighted by the success. “If you could set the 10,000 machines built so far next to each other with extended booms, you would get an impressive length of over 280 kilometres – that’s about as long as a straight line between Hanover and Berlin. For us as a medium-sized company, this is a remarkable amount that we produced in one series. The constantly high demand shows us that, thanks to the consistent model maintenance, the robust, user-friendly and efficient machines still correspond to our sophisticated customers’ ideas and requirements today and in the future.”
Flagship with working widths of up to 40 metres
The UX 11200 is a trailed sprayer with a capacity of 11,200 litres and a tandem axle unit – and it is also the flagship of the UX series. In addition to the 11200, this series includes the types UX 3200 Special and UX 4200 Special with a single pump system, along with the UX 3200 Super, UX 4200 Super, UX 5200 Super and UX 6200 Super with a double pump system and container sizes ranging from 3,200 to 6,200 litres. Depending on the type, the machines can be equipped with working boom widths ranging from 18 to 40 metres.
