Customer Spotlight: Sutter Buttes Manufacturing

AM Equipment windshield wiper systems clear the glass on many Sutter Buttes Manufacturing orchard tractor cabs, including their award-winning SBM – Low Pro Cab 532. This sweet cab, made for Case and New Holland Orchard Tractors, recently took home 2019 World Ag Expo Top 10 New Product honors!

The SBM Low Pro Cab is specifically designed for driver comfort and safety. It is for use in almond, walnut, and other orchards and features a welded unibody rollover-protection structure. Sutter Buttes Manufacturing loaded this cab with all the amenities: AC, ergonomic controls, radio, bullet-proof glass, work lights, limb lifters, and, of course, AM Equipment windshield wiper systems.

For this application, we provide our 212 Series DC gear motor with a radial standard duty wiper arm. This set-up is ideal for these orchard cabs because of the simple installation, no pinch points inside the cab, reduced snag points on the wiper arm, and adjustable arm length.

We’re proud to supply wiper systems to this innovative and quality-driven company. Congratulations on the award, Sutter Buttes Manufacturing!

Looking for a 208 Series Motor? Try the 212 Series!

We’re streamlining our motor offerings, and to that end, we recently discontinued the 208 Series DC gear motors. Our 212 Series DC gear motors serve as direct replacements for 208s, but with more features (we know you love features).

Here’s the nitty-gritty of the 212s as 208 replacements:

  • Still fit in small installation envelopes

  • Motor bracket replicates hole pattern of 208s for easy replacement

  • Both motors are single speed, clockwise or counterclockwise park

  • 212 Series motors park in the opposite direction from 208 Series; to maintain the same park position, use this wire harness if you have a plug-in harness

  • 212s have more torque, so they can run longer windshield wiper arm and blade combos

  • 212s are compatible with our motor covers (with and without rocker switch)
