Simba great Plains
Located in Sleaford in the UK, Great Plains UK Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Great Plains Mfg., Inc based in Salina, Kansas, USA and is the latest addition to the company’s International division.
The acquisition of Simba International by Great Plains in April 2010 brought together the product innovation, expertise, experience and knowledge of two of the world’s leading brands in tillage and drilling equipment.
A compact disc harrow with an integrated press roll, the versatile X-Press combines high speed shallow cultivations with effective consolidation.
Available as a mounted machine in 2.5m, 3m, 3.5m and 4m widths and as a trailed unit in 4.6m, 5.5m, 6.6m 8m and 10m widths, the X-Press can be used in reduced cultivation systems, to incorporate stubble or to work down ploughing in more conventional regimes.
The Great Plains Simba SLD now offers a choice of two new models, the 300 and the 350, offering working widths of 2.8m and 3.3m respectively. These new additions to the SLD family further increase the versatility of this impressive machine.
A deeper working version of the SL cultivator, the Great Plains Simba SLD incorporates some of the principles of the well-proven and ever-popular Solo, and bridges the gap between the two machines.
Now available with a new hydraulic auto-reset tine option, the Great Plains Simba DTX® is extremely versatile.
Designed as a mounted one pass stubble incorporator/soil loosener for tractors in the 200-360hp range, it can be used as a first entry machine into non- inversion tillage or to knock down ploughing, whilst loosening down to 400mm. It is also ideally suited to establishing oilseed rape straight into stubble, as it leaves a very level, fine and consolidated seedbed.
Built around proven, innovative components mounted on a central chassis, Great Plains Simba SL cultivators are capable of carrying out a number of operations in a single pass.
With working widths of 4, 5, 6 and 7 metres respectively, the SL 400, 500, 600 and 700 models feature a Disc Tine Disc (DTD) configuration. Comprising a single row of Pro-Active disc units followed by two rows of ST tines, another set of discs and a 600mm DD Lite rear roller (700mm DD roller on the SL 700), this versatile machine really gets the job done.
