SAM Combo Spreader

6 Tonne

6 Tonne

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.

Sizes come in 3.8, 6 & 9 tonne. All come standard with an 800mm floor belt.

Keep it simple with a standard hydraulic clutch to ground drive, add load cells, or upgrade to the latest smart, accurate Topcon control system 

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.

  • Industry leading coating protection system
    Industry leading coating protection system

    Every SAM has an advanced new paint procedure for the long-term. This application has been chosen for its hard-wearing toughness. Firstly a blast then a thermal-arc spray followed by the SAM coating difference. This industry leading coating protection system is mega tough stuff!

  • 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.

  • Consistent spread control
    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.

  • Topcon control system
    Topcon control system

    You can also add a Topcon control system to replace the standard ground drive. This gives hydraulic floor speed rate and control. This technology means the correct application rate is applied regardless of changes in forward speed or changes in product density. Gives peace of mind for accuracy and reporting.

  • Mudguards for added protection
    Mudguards for added protection

    Standard on all tandem axle machines (except 9 tonne) SAM mudguards are made from UV-protected, high strength polyethylene. They reduce your cleaning and hold up well to abrasive chemical fertilisers.

  • Heavy-duty rubber belt
    Heavy-duty rubber belt

    The 800mm wide rubber floor is two-ply rubber, riveted into corrosion protected steel bars, then welded onto a high-strength chain. Stainless steel skirts run along both sides to prevent striping.

  • Coupling with swivel
    Coupling with swivel

    A fixed coupling is standard across 4 and 5 tonne Spreaders. These can be upgraded to a swivel coupling if need be. Great if you have large loads and varied terrain. 6 tonne and above have the heavy swivel coupling as standard. When you are using an Auto Hitch you'll require a donut eye on the coupling.

  • Internal mesh (Optional Extra)
    Internal mesh (Optional Extra)

    This protective mesh protects the belt and running gear from large objects causing damage.

  • SAM Spreader in action

  • Roll top cover
    Roll top cover

    These simple to use roll out covers have 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.

Optional extras

  • Easy greasing
  • Larger tyres
  • Topcon control (ISOBUS)
  • Scales for weight measurement
  • Brakes on front hubs
  • Lights for on-road use
  • Internal mesh
  • Stainless steel hydraulic hose fittings
Remote greasing S 1
Easy greasing

Remote greasing is an optional extra on all tandem machines. 

All grease points are raised together so they are easy to reach, saving you time and effort with your maintenance.

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
Scales for weight measurement

Manual drive spreaders

Load cells give an accurate measure of the weight of product in the bin. They can be zeroed at any time. 

A simple calculation of the weight of product spread, divided by the area covered, gives you the spread rate (in kg/ha). Many new tractors have an inbuilt display that will give area covered at certain spread widths.

A fixed Iconix FX15 display unit is supplied with all manual SAM machines fitted with weigh scales. It is mounted to the front of your spreader.

A simple App for Bluetooth viewing on your mobile is also available (currently Android only). This App allows you to verify your spread rate at any point in time.

Computer drive (Topcon)

You can also add load cells to any computer controlled machine. Most are spec'd this way. It is really the only way to get true accuracy because you are actually weighing the product in the bin.

Brakes 1
Brakes on front hubs

All tandem axle SAM's can have brakes fitted. They are positioned on the two front hubs. 

Brakes are chosen for their longevity and have proven to be extremely reliable across the years. 

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 helps to prevent lumpy urea upsetting your spread rate and it also stops large objects dropping down and damaging the belt and gear. 

Stainless steel hydraulic hose fittings

Higher grade hydraulic hose fittings for rust protection.
