Product Description

25' & 40' Lister Cultivator & Hipper Bedder

The Lister Cultivator and Hipper Bedder from Great Plains are built with a focus on innovation, functionality, and toughness.

The LC25 and LC40 Lister Cultivators are designed to provide precise, reliable performance in building, maintaining, and cultivating bedded ground. Each model combines a stack-fold toolbar with versatile parallel linkage row units. The parallel linkage and depth band coulters allow for precise depth gauging on individual rows. The machine can be configured as a lister or turned into a row-crop cultivator with rear sweeps. Row spacing includes 30", 36", 38", and 40" options. Additional benefits include thicker mainframe walls for long-term durability, laser-cut depth gauges for precise row unit depth gauging, wider depth-gauging coulter mountings for added strength and stability, and triple-bar center frame support for greater reliability.

The Hipper Bedder, a variation of the Lister Cultivator, is designed to work in the heavy soils of the Delta, creating beds with rolling blades rather than lister bottoms. Built on the Lister Cultivator’s robust, time-proven frame, the Hipper Bedder is ideal for working in heavy, sticky soils where listers are unable to properly roll soil. In contrast to competitive machines, Hipper Bedder’s blade-angle adjustment bolt is easily accessible between the blades for quick angle adjustments. Additionally, operators can easily change working depth with the convenient gauge wheel adjustment handle.

Durable, farmer-friendly, and field-proven, the Hipper Bedder is offered in wide row spacings (36", 38", or 40"), with 22" and 24" blade combinations, or narrow row spacing (30"), with 20" and 22" blade combinations.

Product Features

Row Units
Multiple Row Unit Configurations

Choices on Lister Cultivators include short or long lister bodies, or short or long cultivator bodies with sweeps and optional barring-off discs. Depth coulters or depth tires are available on either configuration, and side shields can be added.

Depth-Gauging Coulter
Depth-Gauging Coulter

Lister Cultivators utilize an open yoke gauge wheel design that places bracing where strength is needed but out of the way for trash flow. A steel depth gauge and positive lock ensure the set depth remains consistent.

3-Point Hitch
3-Point Hitch

The 3-point lift frame extends the length of the center section, creating a fully trussed mainframe. Available in category 3N, 3, 4N, and 4 hitch configurations.

Wing Frames Lock Rigid

Lock the wing frames on folding models to create a rigid frame that effectively distributes weight across the entire machine.

Stack-Fold Toolbar (LC40 & HB40)

Ideal for quick folding and transportation, with thicker mainframe walls for long-term durability. LC25 and HB25 models utilize a rigid frame design.

Safety Lights

LED lights for safety and long bulb life.

Great Plains Hub Assembly
Hub Assembly

Heavy-duty 6-bolt cast hubs with large-diameter spindles and bearings.

Heavy-Duty Row Units

Designed with the operator in mind, the Hipper Bedder’s blade-angle adjustment bolt is easily accessible between the blades for quick angle adjustments. Heavy-duty construction and top-quality sealed bearings create one of the toughest row units on the market.

Heavier Center Frame

Center 7" x 7" frame with ½" wall provides greater strength than most competitive units.

Great Plains Gauge-Wheel Adjustment Handle
Gauge-Wheel Adjustment Handle

Enables desired working depth of bedder to be adjusted easily.

Five Widths of Cultivator Sweeps

The cultivator row unit can be equipped with sweeps in 15", 17", 21", 23", or 25" widths to match your row-crop planting width. Ridging wings bury weeds by throwing soil into crop rows. This is an excellent choice for organic farmers looking for non-chemical weed control.

Great Plains Blade-Angle Adjustment Bolt
