Vineyard SADIE Front Mount
Vineyard SADIE (Front Mount) Suitable for medium to large vineyards and for contractors. It now has adjustable spring tynes.
It is a vine cane sweeper which clears prunings and debris from under vines even in grass, improving hygiene. It also assists in giving clean ground for pre-emergence herbicide spraying.
The SADIE comes complete with a steel mesh guard to protect tractor from flying debris. Also comes with a heavy duty deflector which fits beneath the SADIE's mesh guard protecting the bottom of the tractor.
SADIE's rubber flaps are hard wearing (last approx. 200 ha) but do not damage the vines. Two flaps can be doubled up and adjusted to achieve a more vigorous sweep or singly a light sweep if required for young vines.
The All New SADIE comes complete with a steel mesh guard to protect the tractor from flying debris. Also comes with a heavy duty deflector which fits beneath the SADIE's mesh guard protecting the bottom of the tractor.

All tyres are solid filled for life long tyre protection. Rims have greased hubs with sealed bearings and protector shields.
SADIE's Ø8mm spring tynes are bolted in front of the rubber flaps and are adjustable in height. This allows the tyne to be lower than the rubber flap to allow vigorous raking. The tynes are not as long as the rubber flaps to prevent any damage to the vine trunk. You can use with or without tynes to achieve the best results.
Each SADIE head is independent and relies on the three wheels to keep the flaps & tynes at the right height and contour of the ground. If the head hits an obstacle the guide wheels prevent damage to the vine and a gas strut allows it to swing back smoothly and reposition itself.
A hydraulic flow control valve regulates the maximum head rotation speed.
The SADIE is mounted onto the tractor's front bumper bar (not included). The bumper bar is supplied (100x50x6 RHS steel tube) but without brackets as these need to be made to suit the tractor and welded to the RHS. The SADIE clips over this and is held on with bolts. There is a tension chain with bracket to be mid-mounted each side (supplied).
