Simple and versatile.
With the same practical design and easy to use operation that all SAM’s are known for, SAM Orchard Spreaders are made to meet the needs of modern orchards. They have a lower profile and narrower width, and provide great versatility around what you are able to spread.
Designed primarily for spreading organic matter such as compost, green matter and mulch. This machine will also spread processed fertiliser like superphosphate, lime and urea with absolutely no change-over time!
SAM Computer control
This Orchard Spreader includes a computer controlled hydraulic floor. The SAM controller allows you to choose between spreading or banding at the touch of a button. Rates are input and you are away.
Banding compost, green matter and mulch using the side conveyor
The floor mat moves toward the front of the machine, moving material onto the side banding conveyor. This creates a precise banding or piling pattern in full view of the operator.
Spreading organic material and processed fertilisers using spinners
For a spread pattern behind the machine, the floor mat moves backwards toward the spinners. For different planting centres, spread widths can be changed by setting the speed of the spinners and from the controller.
Minimum of 40 l/min required from your tractor.
Watch the SAM Orchard Spreader in action
This quick video gives you a preview of the NEW SAM Orchard Spreader. Made to meet the needs of most modern orchards it is versatile and easy to use. Choose between spreading and banding from your tractor at the touch of a button.
SAM computer controller
Loading and unloading is simple with the inclusion of drop-down sides.
Side conveyor for banding. 2 for 1!
This compact conveyor spreads material in a line to the right hand side of the Orchard Spreader. Great for banding where you need to apply product in a line or a pile. Designed to be in full view of the operator. There is also absolutely no change-over time between banding and spreading.
Instant control switch
Simply flick the switch for instant starting and stopping of application. No more anticipating when your product is going to come out.
More stainless for longevity
Majority stainless at the rear of the machine, extends longevity of gear where you need it most. Stainless discs are run via enclosed stainless spinner tubes and two well proven speed adjustable hydraulic motors.
Strong stainless panels
Stainless bins are extremely corrosion resistant. Chassis’s have seen a new evolution of painting procedure for extra corrosion protection. Firstly a steel grit abrasive blast, then a thermal-arc pure zinc spray, a primer followed by a final two-pot epoxy top-coat. Tough stuff!
Even does mulch!
There are three positions for the front door depending on what you are wanting to spread 1 Closed (for spreading at rear), 2 Half open (for banding at a volumetric rate) and 3 Completely removed (mulch, woodchip, bark, compost or green waste).
- Standard cover
- Swivel coupling
- LED lights
- Tyre variations
- Side attachment for spinners
- Centre attachment for spinners
- Oil cooler & temperature monitor
- Tophat extensions
- Narrower bin
- Load cells
The standard cover is manually thrown across the load and fixed in place with bungys and stainless fastners. Keeping it simple.
Orchard Spreaders come standard with a fixed coupling with a ball in the eye.
This can be upgraded to a heavy-duty swivel coupling. A swivel coupling adds stability in varied terrain. The swivel coupling has a donut eye.
If you are using your machine on the road you will need a set of lights. They are easy to mount and hardy for knocks and general wear and tear.
Weatherproof lights are LED and plug directly into your power source.
We have tough high performing tyres to suit any application. They are chosen for their quality and durability.
We can change tyre sizes to suit your specific needs. 10/75 X 15.3 Tractor tread tyres are standard. Or you can go for a different tread.
Larger 400/60 X 15.5 12-ply tyres are also available. These larger tyres can be good if you have softer, wetter conditions. However they do add to the height of the machine.
Side attachment for spinners
Spreads to the right hand side of row only. It simply bolts on.
Centre attachment for spinners
Centre blocker - spreads on the rows either side of your machine. It simply bolts on.
Oil cooler & temperature monitor
Monitoring the oil temperature now comes standard on all SAM Orchard Spreaders. The temperature is displayed on the home screen of your e-Rate controller.
You can also choose to upgrade to an oil cooler. This cools the oil from your tractor.
This is important for operators who may have low oil flows from their tractors but run the machine for long periods of time.
We recommend a flow of 55 l/min from your tractor.
It is possible to increase the machines capacity by adding a tophat.
There are two sizes available. The largest top hat increases your capacity by 2 cubic metres (shown here). The smaller tophat increases your capacity by 1 cubic metre.
These has been popular for our New Zealand wine growers.
Your machine can be manufactured with a narrower bin. Our 1400 option has been very popular with hops growers.
Adding load cells give you improved accuracy as they are weighing the product in your bin. Orchard Spreaders have three load cells fitted.
