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.
With working widths of 4, 5, 6 and 6.7 metres respectively, the SL 400, 500, 600 and 700 models feature a Disc Tine Disc (DTD) configuration. Comprising a single row of Pro-Active disc units fited with either notched or SoilRazor disc blades followed by two rows of ST tines or LD (Low Disturbance) tines, another set of discs and a rear roller, this versatile machine really gets the job done. There are five rear rollers to choose from on SL 400, 500 and 600 models. These include the DDL 600 Roller (with 150mm or 200mm spacing), the Maxlift Roller, the ‘V’ Roller or the HD Roller. SL 700 models are equipped with the DD 700 Roller as standard. All rollers feature ‘sealed-for-life’ non-grease bearings.
The design of these cultivators ensures that they can work at shallow depths with the discs and deeper depths with loosening tines as two distinct operations within the machine. This is a different concept to some other machines that operate on a twin-pass principle, where deeper working tines, for example, have to supplement the working operation of discs. This can result in a compromise where clods are boiled to the surface, reducing seedbed quality. With the SL, the key design benefit of the tine is to give a complete shatter of the soil profile at depth without bringing clods and subsoil to the surface.
Field settings are quick and easy to adjust allowing the SL to cope with various soil types, conditions and residue levels.
The end result is a fine, level seedbed of the highest quality.
