Folding Rotary Cutters
Ag producers of all sizes will find the perfect grounds-maintenance solution in this diverse new line of Rotary Cutters from Great Plains. These folding cutters are equipped to tackle everything from standing residue in row-crop fields to weeds and brush in overrun pastures.
Great Plains Folding Rotary Cutters are offered in working widths ranging from 12 to 20 feet. Choose from a variety of standard-duty to extra heavy-duty cutters. Additionally, both 540 and 1000 RPM drive models are offered to match a variety and range of horsepower. Offset models are also available.
Great Plains has raised the bar with the introduction of the 8000 Disc-O-Vator Narrow line of four models specifically designed for narrow transport needs and can be purchased in 15' to 24' versions. Seven-inch shank spacing with 9" sweeps ensure good cutout.
Offset Rotary Cutters
The new Offset Cutters from Great Plains combine our proven deck designs with rugged gearboxes and dependable axles and drive-lines from our 3-deck models. For contractors that want an heavy duty offset cutter, these machines will provide the durability they need. Made for tractors in the 50-250 HP range, these cutters feature 2" to 4.5" cutting capacity. They also feature fully welded decks, and beveled, replaceable skid shoes to prevent gouging.
Rigid Rotary Cutters
Rigid Rotary Cutters from Great Plains are the perfect cutter for pastures and roadside applications. Available in 3-point, semi-mount or pull-type, these models features a 1 1/2" to 3 1/2" cutting capacity depending on model and ¼" side skirts. Plus, every Rigid Rotary Cutter comes with the rugged dependability that Great Plains products are known for.
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.
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.
