ABOUT US

A FAMILY BUSINESS
OVER 125 YEARS IN THE FARMING WORLD

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; either farming in Norfolk, supplying Chemical with a previous business, or currently manufacturing crop sprayers and running our own farm in Norfolk.

Sands Agricultural Machinery was started in 1973 by Neal Sands, building the first sprayer for our contracting business. The ban of aerial spraying, and the need for a high clearance machine, led to farmers and contactors 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 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 self-propelled crop sprayers. We also have a number of quality second-hand used machines for purchase, 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.”

Haig HamiltonJ Haig Hamilton & Sons, Scotland

“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.”

Scott HarrodE.G. Harrison, Norfolk

“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!”

David UllyottBapton Manor Farm Ltd, Wiltshire

“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.”
