Double Sided Multi-mount sadd11.JPG - largeSadie

Vineyard SADIE (rubber flaps) is available in double and single sided models.


It is a vine cane sweeper which clears prunings and debris from under vines, improving hygiene. It also assists in giving clean ground for pre-emergence herbicide spraying.

 

The Double Sided Vineyard SADIE now 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. Extra width side guards are bolt-on with a heavy duty deflector which fits beneath.

 

New sweeping head, has now been raised and with longer rubber flaps now coming down at a 30º angle giving greater flap flexibility resulting in a more gentle sweep similar to nylon bristles but hard wearing.

 

SADIE’s clean sweep reduces the amount of herbicide required to maintain weed free strips

 

SADIE aides in the control of weevils and diseases by removing their habitat.


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.

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 can be mounted onto the tractor's 3 point linkage front or rear and has framework for easy mounting to front end loaders.

 

For best visibility and driver control, the unit should be fitted to the front.

 

The top mounting frame is clamped on and can be removed if 3PL mounted or easily altered to suit front end loaders as shown above or front fork lift as shown right

 

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.

 

Small tyres are puncher proof, larger tyres have anti-puncture sealant for tyre protection. For extreme conditions solid rubber fill is available as an optional extra.

 

One hydraulic ram evenly extends and retracts both SADIE arms. The maximum width is 3.8 metres and the minimum is 1.2 metres. Easy width settings are achieved by pinning the maximum travel of this ram.

 

SADIE leaves a neat windrow of prunings and a clean strip beneath the vines ready for herbicide spraying.
