Every farming operation has diverse needs, and Great Plains has cultivators to meet all those needs. We have focused our cultivator line around dependability and unconventional features that make our products stand out from the competition.
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.
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.
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.
The Great Plains Simba SLD is a deeper working version of the SL cultivator. It incorporates some of the principles of the well-proven and ever-popular Solo, and bridges the gap between the two machines.
The Simba ST Bar with between 4 and 7 ST tines can be fitted ahead of Mounted X-Press models with working widths of between 2.5 and 4 metres. This transforms the machine into a one pass cultivator for tractors between 145hp and 220hp. ST tine options include Shearbolt protection and Bolt-On units. In addition, LD (Low Disturbance) tines are also available.
The Great Plains Simba TL is a linkage-mounted cultivator designed primarily for use on lighter soils, and in rotations including root crops and vegetables. It features three rows of spring-reset cultivating tines that can work deep enough to incorporate large volumes of trash, such as potato haulm or the remains of field vegetables, or perform a thorough soil loosening action ahead of further cultivation.
Compact Disk Harrow
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.
