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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
