Simba Cultipress

The Simba Cultipress combines cultivation, levelling and consolidation into one machine which leaves the seedbed ready for drilling with no further cultivation. Typically used on heavy ground the cultivation is provided by leading tines either in a sprung or protected shearbolt rigid unit.

The tines are followed by a hydraulic levelling board with extended leaves which intertwine with two rows of direct drill rings in a highly effective arrangement. The levelling board serves to break up the clods and ensures a consistent  levelling action across the full working width of the press. The DD rings consolidate and level the seedbed leaving a ridged weatherproof surface.

The Simba Cultipress is available in working widths from 3.3m to 10m offers highly effective cultivations combined with a high output and excellent cost control. It can be used as a final press on top of ploughing or in tandem bearing disc harrows or selected cultivators or by pulling a Cambridge roll as a finishing tool.

The Simba Cultipress uses our stamped steel housing disc harrow bearing units, OEM part number P05431. The direct link to the bearing for the Simba Cultipress can be found here

The pressed steel bearings are used in a configuration on the DD assemblies as shown below with the number of bearings required depending on the length of the axle. For example, 2 are used on a 10 ring axle.
