Great Plains will be testing a new style of cultivation disc on selected machines this season, with a view to offering it as an option in the future.

The 6mm disc are available in 500mm and 560mm diameter, and feature a sharp serrated edge and could prove valuable in various UK and European conditions says Ben Covell, Product Development Manager:

“The serrated edge self-sharpens, in the way a serrated knife does, and so stays sharp. We think this type of disc has potential for working in heavy trash conditions, such as rotations that include maize or potatoes.

“We will try them on a range of our disc cultivators this season to assess their performance”.
