SIMA Debut for Great Plains New X-Press VX

A mounted 3-metre example from Great Plains’ recently launched X-PressVX short disc harrow range makes its SIMA debut.

The new-look X-PressVX, available in both mounted and trailed versions, has an improved chassis, which accommodates a range of new specification options without compromising the generous amount of trash clearance between both sets of discs and the rear roller. The use of tubular steel to the wing sections enables the machine to handle increased torque loadings.
