AM Equipment provides controlled motion solutions for varied applications, including automatic gates. Our 226 Series Long Life DC gear motors are weather-resistant and durable—ideal for outdoor settings. These are high-torque motors that can easily handle tough tasks like operating gates.

Another bonus? Since the 226 Series are 12 V or 24 V DC motors, they can be used in remote locations and operated with solar power.

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!
