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!

AM Equipment's Adjustable Radial Windshield Wiper Arms

Our team saw the need for an improved wiper arm in the marine industry, then hunkered down in the lab to create it. Now, this feature-packed adjustable arm is available for boats as well as other applications.

What makes our adjustable arms different?

First, they’re highly corrosion-resistant due to their stainless steel and composite components.

Second, since the arm length is adjustable, specialty boat builders (or anyone!) can buy a single kit or arm and it’ll fit any of their custom glass sizes. AM Equipment’s adjustable arms change length with a simple push lever for a perfect fit.

Third, our arm mounting head angle is also adjustable. That means it will easily adapt to different pivot positions.

Fourth, if you order the adjustable arm with the 1/2” drum mounting option, it includes a positive dual locking mechanism, which is unique in the industry. This keeps your wiper arms snugly attached to your boat.

If you just need one or a few adjustable arms, find them in our online shop:
