Product Description

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.

When equipped with Pro-Lift hydraulic reset tines that work down to depths of up to 300mm and a DD rear roller, the SLD leaves an excellent level finish, while also performing an effective loosening operation. The SLD range is optionally available with LD (Low Disturbance) tines which perform considerable cultivation and soil restructuring at depth in the root zone without disturbing or inverting any weathered tilth from the surface. An LD Tine Frame is also available on all models complete with shearbolt protected LD tines.

One row of serrated discs ahead of the tines and another row following the tines ahead of the DD roller chop and mix the surface trash. Each disc is mounted on a ProActiveleaf spring allowing better contour following and improved stone protection. The discs working angle can be adjusted using a track rod system operated by a single handle giving stepless change. All models are available with either notched or SoilRazor disc blades.

The soil is consolidated at the rear of the machine with the latest DD roller, manufactured from boron steel to give extended working life. On 420, 460, 540 and 600 models, the DD roller features 700mm diameter rings at a spacing of 230mm. This arrangement not only firms the ground to depth but also leaves a fine, level tilth. A lower scraper between each pair of rings ensures that any blockages in damp conditions are minimised. SLD 320 and 350 models are equipped with a choice of either the 600mm DD 600 roller or the 700mm DD 700 roller. All rollers are fitted with 'sealed-for-life' non-grease bearings.

Designed using the latest computer-aided techniques, the SLD chassis is built to take the stresses and punishment of use with high horsepower tractors in its stride – season after season, after season.

Product Features

Two Gangs Of Pro-Active Discs

Two rows of 600mm Pro-Active discs, one ahead of the tines and one behind, chop and incorporate high volumes of surface trash. Spaced at 250mm, the discs give improved contour following and excellent stone protection.

Shackle Options

The SLD is available with a Cat3, Cat 4 or Cat 5 shackle or a K80 ball. A single hydraulic ram permits sideways movement and reduces stress levels. A rear drawbar complete with four hydraulic lines can also be specified, for pulling a single or double press in tandem with the cultivator.

Choice of Pro-Lift Hydraulic Reset Tines

Simba Pro-Lift hydraulic reset legs run up to 150mm deeper than the discs and to a maximum depth of 300mm. A choice of wings can be fitted to suit soil type, conditions and trash levels. The SLD is optionally available with LD (Low Disturbance) tines which perform considerable cultivation and soil restructuring at depth in the root zone without disturbing or inverting any weathered tilth from the surface.

Easy Disc Angle Adjustment

Fully adjustable disc angling enables you to vary how aggressively the soil is worked. Select an acute angle for maximum mixing of stubble in one pass and a shallower angle to chop down ploughing when required.

DD Rear Roller

All SLD models are equipped with a rear DD roller with shouldered press rings. SLD 300 and 350 are available with 600mm diameter DD 600 or 700mm diameter DD 700 rollers. All other models are fitted with the DD 700 as standard. DD rollers consolidate the ground through to depth and leave a ridged, weather-proof seedbed that is ready for drilling or can be left to weather over the winter. Proven one-piece scrapers are fitted as standard.

LD Tine Frame
Choice of LD Tine Frame

As an option, the SLD can also be specified with an LD Tine Frame with 500mm tine spacing
