Simple integrated accuracy.
Introducing our latest innovation - the SAM e-Spreader. Any SAM Spreader can be upgraded to an e-Spreader at the time of build. The floor speed is controlled from a screen in your tractor cab. This replaces the manual drive. You can set your rate easily from in your cab and get your spread rate very accurate.
The SAM e-Spreader is easy to calibrate and every e-Spreader is load cell ready. Fitting scales is the only way to get true accuracy because you are weighing your product. This technology means the correct application rate is applied regardless of changes in forward speed.
It also integrates easily with third party GPS systems such as TracMap. You can see how many hectares you have covered from the screen and the weight you have applied. This live data means proof of placement is easy. If you are already using a third party tracking system you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
80 - 90 l/min of oil flow from your tractor is preferred.

This video shows James chatting about his NEW SAM e-Spreader. Its e-Rate controller controls the floor speed from in your tractor cab. This replaces the manual drive. You can set your rate easily from in your cab and get your spreading very accurate.
e-Rate controller in your cab
The e-Rate controller screen is mounted in your cab. Setting your spread rate is simple – just key in your spread rate, your product density and spread width. The reliable European hardware is from Germany coupled with innovative Kiwi software (shown here with TracMap).
Border control & Bulk unloading
Extra functions such as bulk unloading and border control are included as standard. Border control reduces spinner speed on the right hand disk which decreases spread width. This is helpful for spreading beside borders and waterways.
Load cell integration (extra)
Adding load cells to your e-Spreader is recommended. They give you improved accuracy as you are weighing the product in your bin. All e-Spreaders are load cell ready.

Automatic back door
An automatic back door is a new optional extra and replaces the manual winding of the back door jack. Simply key in your rate, density and width then the back door moves to the appropriate height for you.
Also handy for closing your back door when you are driving down the race so you are not losing any product out the back. There is a simple manual override function built in.

What advantage does Topcon have over the e-Spreader?
It is ISOBUS compatible so can plug directly into your tractor (if compatible). Proof of placement is integrated into the system without relying on third party reporting.
It also has some nifty extra features such as dynamic rate control, mapping, light bar and sectional control. We’ll customise the right set-up for your requirements. Find out more.
What advantage does e-Spreader have over the Topcon?
The cost to purchase is lower.
The e-Spreader integrates well with third party mapping systems such as TracMap. So if you are already running a system for proof of placement, you can stick to what you know.
