In conjunction with machinery distributor, Farmhand, Amazone dealers are currently promoting a finance offer applicable on fertiliser spreaders which will remain operative until mid-February next.
Noting that there are ‘thousands’ of old spreaders awaiting replacement, the Farmhand offer sees the ZAM 1201, for example, (complete with folding cover and lights) being offered for an initial deposit of just €775, the balance for payment in nine half-yearly amounts of €775, inclusive of VAT.
Renowned for its build quality and durability, the Amazone slow-turning, high-capacity agitation system and reduced disc speeds is said to ensure an even, granule-protecting fertiliser flow. This results in less dust and waste, coupled with better spread.
Mindful that fertiliser is one of the most expensive commodities on any farm, Farmhand managing director Paul Scrivener notes that their announcement has two key objectives. One is to remind farmers of the saving in costs that can be made using a modern, top-end machine that spreads accurately so expensive fertiliser is not lost in hedges and ditches.
A parallel aim is to show that Amazone equipment is ‘less expensive than some might think,’ he said.
