Coombridge and Alexander have introduced their new SAM computer-controlled spreader. It features Topcon technology which is ISOBUS-compatible, intuitive to use and customisable.
The monitoring system in SAM spreaders is fast, accurate and user-friendly. It gives precise control when spreading fertiliser or manure, and it applies the correct rate regardless of changes in forward speed or product density.
As an ISOBUS system, it can coordinate with any compliant tractor. Or it can be used with its own large colour touchscreen display.
The computer operates a hydraulically driven floor-belt. Any SAM spreader can be specified with a computer control system to replace the standard ground drive at the time of build. The screen requires a few quick inputs from you – fertiliser density, spread width and spread rate.
Advantages include:

  • Application rates are set using the touchscreen inside the cab.
  • Spreaders can travel very slowly while spreading at a very high rate (eg: when spreading shavings in sheds).
  • Load cell integration gives pinpoint precision. Measuring the weight of product in the spreader on the go, then automatically adjusting the floor speed to achieve correct application rates. The accuracy of the spreading rate is as high as 99% of the target rate.
  • Border control (reduces the spinner speed on one side of the spreader, which decreases the spread width when spreading along boundaries and waterways. No double applications).
  • It is easy to extract information and provide maps for reporting and proof of placement.
  • The system is customisable. You can choose if you want to add items such as load cells, an X25 Screen & GPS aerial (for proof of placement and field mapping of your jobs).
