You can choose between a fully power-shifted Hexashift 24/24 transmission or the continuously variable CMATIC transmission.The Amazone ZA-TS is a large area spreader with a working width ranging from 18m to 54m. The AutoTS border-spreading device provides an accurate trajectory for the spread pattern right up to the land edge.

Tucano 480
The mid-range Tucano combine harvester is powered by an 8,8l Caterpillar C9 engine rated at 261kW. It has an extremely efficient common cooling system, while automatic dust extraction facilitates the continuous cleaning of the hydraulically powered rotating radiator frame. The hydrostatic ground drive is controlled by a multifunction lever, enhancing performance and allowing faster turns and precise adjustment of forward speed to suit the land conditions. All-wheel drive can be engaged at the touch of a button, keeping the combine moving in difficult terrain.

Rear wheels can go up to 2,15m in diameter and the overall length is 5,6m. The parallelogram-sprung front axle has integral brakes and the optional front linkage has a capacity of 6,5t.

Jaguar 960
The CEBIS compact control hub on the Jaguar forage harvester enables the operator to work with confidence in all conditions. All of the main functions are controlled and monitored through just a few central elements. The electronic CEBIS on-board information system provides a logical and ergonomic interface with all aspects of the operation.

The 960 is powered by a Mercedes-Benz OM 502 V8 engine rated at 480kW. Automatic control of the ground speed enables the engine load to be used optimally, the Jaguar adjusting its performance to operate at the set engine load all the time. If the crop suddenly becomes more dense the ground speed is automatically reduced.
