Reliability plus.
 

SAM Feed Wagons are built tough for lasting performance year on year. Complexity is engineered out to ensure they are very reliable, and easy for your team to use and maintain.

Each machine provides an even flow of feed with excellent throw. They handle a large range of feed types including; green feed, maize, PK and silage.


6, 9, 10, 12, 15 cube models are available. All sizes come with either a low maintenance stainless chain side-feed or a simple centre-feed delivery system. Adding smart load weigh scales can also provide simple, accurate electronic weighing of feed quantities if you need it.


Like all Sam gear these wagons are backed by fast spare-parts and servicing.

Load weigh scales

Load weigh scales give an accurate measure of the weight of feed in the bin and can be zeroed at any time. A fixed Iconix FX15 display unit is supplied with all SAM machines fitted with weigh scales.

A simple calculation of the weight of feed spread, divided by the area covered, gives a very accurate spread rate (in kg/ha). An App for Bluetooth viewing is also available (currently Android only).

LED Lights & flags

If you are using your machine on the road you will need a set of lights and flags. The flexi mounting boards are made from durable plastic, hardy for knocks and general wear and tear. Weatherproof lights are LED and plug directly into your power source.

Hydraulic side-shift kit

This hydraulic side shift kit extends the side-feed by 250mm for greater reach. It is hydraulically driven from the cab of your tractor. Excellent for easy trough feeding.

Brakes 1
Brakes

Brakes are available for tandem axle machines. They are usually located on the front hubs only. The brake system chosen had been well-proven over the years and is very reliable.

Skid 1
Skid

If you are using your machine with a quick hitch you will want to include a skid on the drawbar. There is no extra charge for this. Just let your dealer know when placing the order. 

Tyres 2
Tyre upgrade

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. The 6, 9 and 10 cubic metre wagons use 11.5 x 15.3 tyres but these can be upgraded to larger 400 x 15.5 tyres. The 400 x 15.5 tyres are standard on the 12 cubic metre wagons.

500 x 17 tyres are standard on all 15 cubic metre models. Larger tyres can be excellent if you have softer, wetter conditions. 

Custom options are also available POA.
