New Super-L3 booms cleared for take-off

Published on 13 January 2022

AMAZONE is now offering its state-of-the-art Super-L3 booms in four working widths from 36 to 42 metres.

Designed for a super smooth ride, the booms have pivot points at 12, 24 and 33 m, allowing them to be operated at reduced widths if necessary. Each section on each side can be folded independently, allowing obstacles to be negotiated with ease and the boom to be compactly folded for transport. Likewise, an optional reduction joint on the boom end sections of the two larger models allows the operating width to be reduced by three metres.

CLAAS Harvest Centre General Manager – Product, Tim Needham, says Super-L3 booms are designed using proven aeronautical principles to create a light but sturdy frame. “Their robust design allows the booms to cope with the stresses caused by high operating speeds and at maximum work rates,” he says. “The wide structural design of the carriers and profiles ensures a high rigidity and load-bearing capacity. The hydraulically-pressurised break-back joints keep the boom ends steady but release safely in the event of a collision before bringing the ends back into position quickly.”

Super-L3 boom are equipped with AMAZONE’s ContourControl active boom guidance system and the SwingStop active vibration damping system as standard. “These systems ensure the distance to the target surface is accurately maintained throughout spraying operations for a perfect application,” Tim says. “All in all, Super-L3 booms provide an absolutely smooth boom ride under all conditions.”
