Based in Stalham, Norfolk, our machines are known for quality, strength, performance and overall reliability. There is no hiding we are a family business that has been in the farming world for over 125 years, from farming in Norfolk to supplying crop protection products with a previous company, to day manufacturing crop sprayers and continuing to run our farm in Norfolk.

Sands Agricultural Machinery was founded in 1973 by Neal Sands, building the first sprayer for our contracting business. The ban on aerial spraying, and the need for a high clearance machine, led to farmers and contractors asking us to produce self-propelled sprayers for them.

Neal’s son Thomas joined the company in 2005, and we have been growing in strength ever since the first David Brown-based sprayer was launched at the Royal Norfolk Show in 1975.

We produce a wide variety of models, which can be tailor-made to suit your individual requirements.  Our high capacity, high output ‘Horizon’ range offers users a comprehensive choice of 3-4,000-litre self-propelled crop sprayers, and our recently-introduced ‘Infinity’ line, based on an all-new chassis, brings a number of new features to the 5-6,000-litre sector please see our used sprayer section for current availability.

What our customers say

“We have been dealing with SAM Sprayers for nearly 30 years and they sure know how to look after us in Scotland! The Horizon model has taken our farm to another level with precision spraying and just loves eating up our very steep hills.”

“Just finished an 18 hour stretch on the SAM Sprayer 36 mtr Horizon and I can honestly say if I didn’t need to sleep, I could carry on and do another 18 hours. Cracking machine, a joy to operate.”

“We are highly delighted with every aspect of our SAM Sprayer Horizon 5500, from the comfortable, ergonomic cab and the efficiencies afforded by a high capacity machine to the knowledge that, if required, we will get rapid, knowledgeable back up from the team in Norfolk. A truly fantastic all round package!”

“In upgrading our sprayer we found that the SAM Sprayer offered the better package given the wet spring. It has performed over expectation with a light footprint, tighter turning enabling us to travel when others have been struggling.”
