From this page you can browse the comprehensive range of Great Plains and Great Plains Simba trailed and mounted tillage equipment, soil looseners, presses, consolidation roller systems, Yield-Pro planters, cultivator drills, air drills and compact drills.
Narrow Transport Field Cultivator
Great Plains’ popular 8000 Series Field Cultivator has been redesigned for the European market with an 8m working width capable of 3m transport. The new FCC8308N will be produced in Great Plains’ Sleaford production plant and will include a full European lighting kit, tyre option, walking axle units, hydraulics, metric fasteners, and brake option kit. The European model utilizes the same MAX-MIX™ shank pattern as its American counterpart, resulting in an effective 18cm shank spacing from front to rear.
Short Disc Harrow
Complete with a host of new features and options, the new generation of X-Press short disc harrows, the X-PressVX, can be used for a wide range of applications.
Whether you need shallow cultivations as part of a cultural grass weed control strategy, stubble cultivation incorporating residue, cultivation and levelling of vegetable ground or ploughed land, the new X-PressVX has got what it takes to get the job done.
Effective consolidation plays a crucial, but often under-appreciated, part in modern arable farming. The Simba Aqueel II enables farmers to consolidate seedbeds after drilling and optimise crop performance.
It minimises moisture loss, facilitates improved drainage and water infiltration and ensures excellent soil to seed/root contact, while also protecting soil against erosion at a time when it generally has no green cover and so is at its most vulnerable.
The Simba CultiPress combines several well-proven elements to complete three actions in one pass - cultivating, levelling and consolidating the seedbed to leave a weatherproof finish that is often ready for drilling with no further cultivation. This range is more suitable for use on heavy ground.
Cultivation at speed is provided by leading tines, either Pro-Active sprung tines or shearbolt protected rigid units, which are available on all models.
Ideal for mounted machines on lower hp tractors, the Great Plains Simba DD Lite is available in 550mm and 600mm diameters. Lighter in weight, the DD Lite shares the same unique features of the DD Ring. These include the unique axle tensioning system with steel spacers between the rings, which allows the roller to ‘self-adjust’ as it wears, maintaining its effectiveness, whilst offering superior surface consolidation allied to adequate firming to depth on shallower cultivated soils.
Widely accepted as one of the best consolidation systems capable of working in all soil types, Great Plains Simba DD Press Rings set the standard for pressing efficiency and remain unique both in their design (which is patented) and their performance.
Designed primarily to complement disc harrows or deeper working cultivators, Great Plains offers a full range of Simba Double Presses ranging from 4.6m to 8.2m. All are fitted with two rows of intermeshing 600mm diameter DD Rings and flotation tyres.
Front leading tines, 50mm x 25mm rigid, are offered as an option as are rear drawbars with two or four hydraulic pipes. All models above fold hydraulically to a transport width of under 3m.
Standard features also include remote greasing for bearings, road lights, hydraulic folding options and hydraulic brakes.
Available with hydraulic auto-reset tine or shearbolt options and a choice of six rear rollers, 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.
The benefits of selective soil loosening should never be underestimated, particularly following a wet autumn. Healthy root growth is essential if crop yields are to remain high. Any subsurface pans must be identified and then removed.
Incorporating the latest technology, the Flatliner offers the perfect solution.
A choice of two ranges provides maximum shatter of deeply embedded compaction layers with minimum surface disturbance across the working width. The Pro-Lift leg and point provide a very effective soil conditioning action with prolonged wear rates.
The Simba Single Press is a range of 4.2m – 8.2m vertical folding, 2 section single presses which are available on 700mm DD rings or Aqueel II rollers. These machines are designed principally to work in tandem with a primary cultivator such as a Simba SL cultivator. All models fold to a transport width of under 3m. The Simba Single Press is fitted with 400/60 x 15.5 transport wheels on 6 stud hubs.
