SAM Combo Spreader

3.8 Tonne Combo

3.8 Tonne Combo

Tough and versatile.

With the same practical design and easy to use operation that all SAM’s are known for, the SAM Combo Spreaders provide extra versatility around what you are able to spread.

They are capable of spreading chemical fertiliser including; superphosphate, urea and lime. But will also spread most organic product like chicken and pig manure, screw-pressed effluent and sand.

Available with capacities of 3.8, 5 and 6  tonne. All come standard with an 800mm floor belt and are generally single axle.

Keep it simple with a standard hydraulic clutch to ground drive, or upgrade to the latest smart, accurate Topcon control system with weigh scales.

Smart features

  • Stainless back end
    Stainless back end

    The bulk of the back end is constructed from stainless steel. This cuts out rust and means the life of your running gear is extended. The flat discs, vanes and spinner tubes are all stainless. They connect to a pair of extremely reliable hydraulic motors. The roller bearings are easily adjustable for you and keep discs firm.

  • The paintwork may outlast you!
    The paintwork may outlast you!

    Every SAM has an advanced new paint procedure. This application has been chosen for its hard-wearing toughness. They are firstly blasted with a steel-grit, then a zinc spray is applied (thermal-arc), a primer coat then the two pot epoxy paint. Mega-solid!

  • Tough rust resistant hopper
    Tough rust resistant hopper

    These plastic bins have shown themselves to be very strong and reliable. They are made from UV-protected polyethylene. Fertiliser can be extremely corrosive and the SAM bin prevents that by being rust-free and easy clean. Fertiliser slips down the sides easily and washes off well.

  • Border control Testing SP 1
    Consistent spread control

    Setting the rate you wish to spread is simply by rear door adjustment. The double spinner design gives a nice, accurate, even spread pattern for a wide range of product.

  • Smart, accurate weighing
    Smart, accurate weighing

    When purchasing your Spreader you can add electronic weigh scales. This mean you can weigh the fertiliser in your bin at any point. They can also be zeroed out. Further information is below. Note: Weigh scales cannot be fitted retrospectively to Spreaders.

  • Computer control box 2 1 Topcon box
    New smart computer drive

    If even more accuracy and control is needed go for a computer control system (instead of the normal ground drive). This technology means the correct application rate is applied from the cab regardless of changes in forward speed or changes in product density. You can go for rate control only, or add weigh scales for extra precision and automatic rate calibration. A GPS aerial is great for proof of placement and field mapping. Further information below.

  • Mudguards for added protection
    Mudguards for added protection

    Standard on all tandem axle machines. SAM mudguards are made from UV-protected, high strength polyethylene. Cleaning and chips to chassis are reduced and they hold up well to abrasive chemical fertilisers.

  • Textured rubber belt

    The 400mm wide rubber floor is two-ply rubber, riveted into galv steel bars, then welded onto a high-strength chain. Stainless steel skirts run along both sides to prevent striping.

Roll Top Feature 1 v2
Roll out top cover

These simple to use roll out covers are one of our most popular upgrades. It is a heavy-duty canvas on a sturdy framework with a simple bungy system.

The cover is rolled up by the handle and tucked out of the way when you are not using it.

The roll-top is located at the rear of the machine so that your Spreader is able to be loaded from both sides.

Standard cover 1
Flat cover with bungys

Straightforward and uncomplicated, this basic heavy-duty canvas cover is simply tossed across the load and hooked in place with bungys and clips. 

Swivel coupling S 2
Coupling with swivel

Swivel couplings on your tow hitch are great if you have large loads and varied terrain.

A fixed coupling is standard across the 4 & 5 tonne Spreaders. They can be upgraded to swivel coupling if required.

The 6, 8 and 10 tonne SAM Trailers have the heavy swivel coupling as standard. 

When you are using an Auto Hitch you'll require a donut eye on the coupling.

Tyres 2
Larger tyres

Our tyres have been chosen for their toughness and durability. We only go for very high quality options for you.

Four and five tonne SAM Spreaders come standard with 11.5x15.3 tyres. Or you can upgrade to bigger 400x15.5 tyres. Bigger tyres can be suitable for softer, wet terrain.

Six tonne Spreaders have these 400x15.5 tyres included as standard or can be upgraded to 500/50x17 tyres.

For every single-axle model 550 / 60x22.5 tyres are an upgrade option.

Tyre specifications can be adapted for your particular situation. We are happy to talk through custom options.

Topcon control (ISOBUS)

If even more accuracy and control is needed, go for a computer controlled system. This is instead of the normal ground drive.

This technology means the correct application rate is applied from the cab, regardless of changes in forward speed or changes in product density.

You can go for rate control only, or add weigh scales for extra precision and automatic rate calibration. 

A GPS aerial is great for proof of placement and field mapping. Find out more.

Load cell S 1
Load cell integration

When purchasing your Spreader you can add electronic weigh scales. This mean you can weigh the fertiliser in your bin at any point. They can also be zeroed out.

An Iconix FX15 display unit comes standard with the addition of scales. It is fixed to the front of your machine.

A straightforward calculation using the weight of fertiliser you wish to spread, divided by the area you want to cover gives you a clear spread rate (kilograms per hectare). The majority of new tractors have a screen that gives you your spread widths covered.

When upgrading to load weigh scales you will be provided with an Android App for Bluetooth viewing on your mobile.

Note: Weigh scales cannot be fitted retrospectively to Spreaders.

Material agitator

The material agitator is designed to break-up, lift and tumble materials in a gentle but thorough blending action. This process, ideal for organic material and manure, allows for consistent flow onto the spinner disks.

Lights and flags S 1
Lights for on-road use

You will need LED lights and flags if you are travelling on the road. The flexible plastic mounting boards are tough and hardy if knocked.

The LED lights plug straight into your power source. They are fully waterproof.

Mesh S 1
Internal mesh

This mesh fits inside your bin. It stops large objects dropping down and damaging the belt and gear. Great for spreading crusty Urea.
