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!

Dust-Resistant Wiper Systems for Agricultural & Heavy Industrial Cabs

Every windshield wiper application has its enemy:  salt for marine applications, petroleum-based sludge for oil rigs, and dust for agricultural and industrial cabs.  In addition to dust-resistance, you need motors with EMI and RF suppression and a thermal breaker to prevent damage from overheating.
