Great Plains extends cultivator line-up

Great Plains Simba is the latest company to announce changes to its kit line-up ready for next month’s Cereals event.

The Lincolnshire firm is extending its cultivator ranges with the launch of updated versions of its Simba ST Bar, X-Press, DTX, SL and TL cultivators. There are also new options for its Flatliner and SLD models.

The changes should appeal to farmers working in consistent soil types, says Great Plains. Additions to previously offered specs include shear-bolt leg protection, bolt-on points, fixed-angle cultivating discs and a wider choice of rear rollers. These changes should make the implements simpler and lighter, which will be reflected in their price, says the company.

“Where farmers are working different establishment systems and soil types, need significant stone protection or use rotations that include crops producing high trash levels, the adjustability of implements is important,” says David Holmes, UK sales director.

“But many farmers don’t need that level of specification. These new options will make the machines lighter and offer cost reductions.”

Changes to the Simba SL range include the Lamma-launched HD roller and the TL300 and TL350 are now available with optional fishtail coverers for the sprung covering discs and various rear rollers.

The Simba Flatliner 500 and SLD ranges will both be available with the low surface disturbance (LD) tine as an option. The SLD is also available with LD tine frames in place of the traditional V-formation, which are designed for one-pass oilseeds establishment.

The Cereals event takes place on 12 and 13 June at Boothby Graffoe, Lincolnshire LN5 0AS.
