Great Plains Unveils New X-Press Range

Other than a change of colour from Simba orange to Great Plains green, the move from shear bolt to sprung tine protection and the more recent addition of a limited disc angling option, the X-Press short disc harrow has hitherto remained pretty much the same as the first models that rolled off the Sleaford production line more than ten years ago. Over that time, the X-Press has established itself as one of the most popular cultivation tools of its type throughout the UK, across Western Europe and beyond.
