TL

Product Description

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.

Proven in extensive field trials the TL delivers outstanding results when used for primary and secondary cultivations in the autumn. It is also highly effective for performing spring cultivations of over-wintered stubbles to open them up and help them dry out and warm up ahead of spring drilling.

Ten tines on the 3.0m model and twelve tines on the 3.5m TL are staggered across three rows. The spacing between tines is 300mm and 900mm between tines on the same row. These are followed by a set of sprung levelling discs. There is a good choice of rear rollers including a 540mm open cage roller, a set of 550mm DD Lite rings, a V-Roller, a Heavy-Duty (HD) roller and a Maxlift roller.

A 3m machine with cage roller weighs 1.75 tonnes and needs between 120hp and 200hp depending on soil type and working conditions. The 3.5m model with the same roller weighs two tonnes. When fitted with DD Lite rings the machines weigh 2.25 tonnes and 2.6 tonnes respectively and need between 140hp and 200hp.

 

Product Features

Mechanical Spring Auto-Reset

Mounted on a coil spring unit the tines benefit from maximum protection against impact damage when working in stony conditions and positive engagement with the soil at all times.

MT Trip Reset Tines
Krava Unit with MT Spring Loaded Tines

The Great Plains Simba Krava unit with MT Spring Loaded Tines can work down to 300mm deep 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. The legs are fitted with bolt-on twisted chisel points and wings. The point, wing and shin are individual components allowing operation without wings for deeper working.

Disc Levellers
Disc Levellers

Following the tines, a row of serrated sprung levelling discs chop and incorporate the surface trash and level the cultivated ground ahead of the press roller. The levellers can be extended wider than the roller to negate ridges.

Depth Control

The working depth of the tines is adjusted via the rear roller using a set of shims.

V-Roller
Choice Of Rear Roller

With its 'V'- shaped profile to the wheels which fill with soil in use to achieve soil-soil wearing, the V-Roller (shown left) lifts soil and stays cleaner on the inside compared with similar U-shaped rollers. If preferred, the TL can be fitted with a DDL 550, Aqueel II, Cage, Heavy Duty (HD) or a Maxlift roller to consolidate the soil and create a fine, level, weatherproof finish.
