Simba - Model DTX - Soil Looseners
From Soil Looseners
Available with hydraulic auto-reset tine or shearbolt options and a choice of six rear rollers, the Great Plains Simba DTX® is extremely versatile. Designed as a mounted one pass stubble incorporator/soil loosener for tractors in the 200-360hp range, it can be used as a first entry machine into non- inversion tillage or to knock down ploughing, whilst loosening down to 400mm. It is also ideally suited to establishing oilseed rape straight into stubble, as it leaves a very level, fine and consolidated seedbed.
Arranged in a staggered formation, the DTX® is fitted as standard with five Simba Pro-Lift loosening tines which excel in heavier soils and situations where deeper loosening is required. The Pro-Lift legs offer three wing options to suit the degree of lift and shatter required. The new optional auto-reset tine system can be specified for stoney conditions reducing downtime and increasing productivity.
The tines are followed by two rows of cultivation discs. These are fully adjustable by means of a simple turnbuckle which creates a greater or lesser angle to vary how aggressively the soil is worked. Individually mounted, spaced at 250mm and measuring 500mm in diameter, their rotational speed is far greater than more conventional discs. Chopping and mixing is enhanced, and a finer seedbed is achieved. Pro-Active disc units give optimum protection against stone damage.
At the rear, you have a choice of six different rollers including the HD Roller, V-Roller and Maxlift Roller as well as the Aqueel II, DD 600, DDL 600 (200mm spacing) and DDL 600 (150mm spacing) rollers.
A massive amount of clearance between the tines, both sets of discs and the rear roller ensures that the DTX® can deal easily with high volumes of trash.

Pro-Lift Loosening Tines
Optional Simba Pro-Lift tines. Spaced at 545mm, only 20mm thick and with three wing options, they work down to 400mm with minimal draught. These tines excel in heavier soils and in conditions requiring deeper loosening.
The depth of the rear roller can be quickly and easily adjusted to suit different ground conditions and tasks.
The DTX is available with a choice of rear rollers. Shown left, the DD roller with 600mm diameter shouldered press rings, consolidates the ground through to depth and leave a high quality weatherproof finish.
An optional auto-reset tine system can be specified for stoney conditions, reducing downtime and increasing productivity.
Easy to use, fully adjustable disc angling enables you to vary how aggressively the soil is worked. Select an acute angle for maximum mixing of stubble in one pass and a shallower angle to chop down ploughing when required.
For those who farm consistent soils and do not need fully adjustable disc angling the DTX is available with limited disc angle adjustment via three fixed settings.
