Great Plains’ expanded Sleaford factory has been working to full capacity all year, helping keep up with demand from its growing European markets.

This autumn that has included making 60 of the company’s popular Stubble Cultivators, built for export to Eastern Europe.

The Stubble Cultivator is a versatile seedbed finishing tool that features five ranks of tines that move the top few inches of the seedbed to kill weeds and volunteers, while incorporating trash and leaving a smooth seedbed that is ready for drilling:

“The fact that we have the ability to manufacture these machines at Sleaford – and to design and build the new European Yield-Pro planter here – highlights the growing capabilities of the Sleaford plant”, says Colin Adams, Managing Director.

“Having such modern, well-equipped manufacturing facilities on site means we can be much more flexible with production schedules, which we trust will enable us to continue serving our dealers and customers worldwide efficiently”.
