Double Sided Front Mount Sadie
Suitable for medium to large vineyards.
Vineyard SADIE Front Mount
The SADIE head follows the contour of the ground with wheels giving height and angle control. 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.
SADIE's rubber flaps are hard wearing (last approx. 200 ha) but do not damage the vines. The flaps can be adjusted to achieve a more vigorous sweep or a light sweep if required for young vines.
A hydraulic flow control valve regulates the maximum head rotation speed.
Usually the tractor is fitted with a mulcher or mower on it's rear 3 point linkage so that sweeping and mulching of prunings occurs at the same time.
All tyres air free for tyre protection.
One hydraulic ram retracts & raises both SADIE head & arm assemblies for turning at the end of rows & for transport.
