Amazone Cayena wings modification

Has anyone had this modification done on their drill. Had the call to say it needs doing which involves cutting some bits to allow a longer plate to be welded in where the wings fold from the main body.
interested to see one done before they start.

Had ours done a few days ago. The long support/strenghthening bracket on the rear hinges is replicated to the front hinges. Fabricaters turned up with a kit including a tin of green paint and made a good job. Extra shims are put in to stop the new welded brackets, when folded, hitting the tank. Check that the orange safety latch still clicks home when folded.

Thanks for the reply. Would it be possible to post a couple of pics if you have a min. I’m glad your please with it. My concern is that it’s going to stick out like a sore thumb. You pay a lot of money for new kit and try your dam hardest to look after it. Then it’s going to be patched up through no fault of your own. Did you have any cracking or signs of fatigue before they done it. Mine is a 2019 single hopper.

Dealer said they have had 3 modified and none had cracks. Ours is a 2019 twin hopper but hardly used because of very wet conditions the last 2 autumn's. About 500ac altogether. Limiting factor is the rubber roller but we like the drill. Maybe the addition of the front disc's more recently has prompted the mod

I see your point of view, but I think it's a credit to amazone for trying to resolve the problem. Lots of manufacturers walk away from these things.

Looks a very tidy upgrade.
